Collagen Induction Therapy (C.I.T)

Collagen Induction Therapy is quickly becoming the inexpensive, advanced therapy of facial treatment for those people who appreciate minimal downtime with great results. It is basically based on the principle whereby hundreds of foci of collagen and elastin are formed in the dermis.

How does this treatment work?

Over the year, Poison has mastered its skills in CIT process. Without using any chemical, this treatment is done with the help of a sterilized roller to create more collagen and elastin.

Our expert will first apply topical numbing cream to decrease any discomfort. After that, a sterilized roller, with hundreds of micro-needles is rolled over the treatment areas. Patients typically describe the sensation of micro-needling quite similar to tiny wounds.

These wounds, and there are thousands, produced by rolling the instrument across the treated area, become the focal point for the body to produce its own collagen, even in peri- and post-menopausal women. As the body is producing its own natural collagen, there is no rejection.

When will the results start appearing?

Collagen Induction Therapy is a slow process.  Results may vary from three months to nine months as the body takes the time to create new collagen.

However, the patient who has undergone the treatment will see continual improvement. The patient’s first skin is covered with tropical cream which is then followed by the later treatment. A crucial part of the treatment is the preparation of the skin prior to the procedure with topical vitamins A and C. This significantly reduces downtime and patient’s discomfort. It is very important that the patients continue taking the topical vitamins for at least 6 months post procedure to ensure the production of healthy collagen and elastin. We have experienced that the results are vastly inferior and that patients experience unnecessary discomfort when not following these protocols.
