What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

What is collagen induction therapy

Collagen induction therapy (CIT)  is a treatment we offer at Plume Holistic Skincare and one we truly believe is the most effective treatment for skin rejuvenation.

It’s commonly known as skin needling and it is a treatment that works to ‘reprogram’ the function of the skin to create healthier, firmer and a smoother textured skin. It works to trigger targeted growth factors that encourage your skin to build new healthy collagen. 

What benefits will regular treatments have?

With regular treatments we generally see CIT clients see benefits including

  • Minimised fine lines and wrinkles – particularly around the eyes and lips 
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Improved skin texture
  • Increased natural collagen / elasticity in their skin
  • Improved absorption of topical treatments (i.e serums)
  • Reduced appearance of scarring 

What will happen at my first treatment?

The steps to your first CIT appointment happen well before your first treatment. We start preparing your skin in the weeks leading up to your first treatment to achieve maximum results. We’ll talk you through the treatment and what to expect - sensations and things like that. We want our clients to always know exactly what is happening and comfortable at all times.

What should I do after a treatment?

After a CIT treatment you will notice that your skin is a little red and pink. The general recovery period for your skin is around 24 - 72 hours. 

It’s important to maintain a considered skincare regime in between your treatments to keep your skin well nourished and to maximise results. We use and recommend dermaviduals and will work with you to create a skin care regime that works for you.
