Stretch Mark Treatment with Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
What is Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen Induction Therapy is a procedure that combines a state-of-the-art medical grade micro-needling device with a topical skin care regime. The Collagen Induction Therapy uses an electrical device used to infuse moisture, vitamins and antioxidants to your skin while stimulating cell proliferation and causing the formation of new collagen. This minimally invasive procedure is clinically proven to reduce the look of scars and stretch marks.
How does the procedure work?
Before your procedure begins, a numbing cream is applied to the area of your skin being treated. Then our Microneedling Device is used to gently puncture the skin with tiny, sterile needles.
Who is a good candidate?
This minimally invasive, non-ablative, non-surgical, cosmetic procedure is safe and effective on all skin types without the risk of discolouration.
When will I see results and when can I return to everyday activities?
Results from Collagen Induction Therapy can been seen immediately. Your skin will look instantly rejuvenated but that’s only the beginning. Studies show that microneedling can improve the production of your skin’s collagen and elastin up to six months following multiple treatments. Your Monaco Skin Care Specialist will recommend a series of sessions to maximize your results.
After a procedure, your skin may be red and flushed in appearance similar to the appearance of a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch. This will diminish quickly and subside within 48 hours.
