Collagen Induction Therapy
The collagen in your skin is a crucial protein that keeps it firm and looking youthful. As we get older, our collagen production wanes. The skin loses collagen, resulting in changes in the firmness and elasticity. The texture and tone changes, and fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear as the skin loses its youthful structure. Collagen induction therapy can stimulate collagen production to create more youthful skin and is available at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan.
Collagen induction therapy, or CIT, can promote new collagen production by your skin and body. When the skin is wounded, the natural healing response is to produce collagen to repair the skin. CIT stimulates the healing response without damaging the skin. There are several cosmetic dermatology treatments that can induce collagen production, including microneedling, chemical peels and laser treatments, helping you achieve firmer, more youthful skin.
Benefits of CIT
While facial filler injections and other treatments can mimic the effects of collagen, the most natural way to improve the youthfulness of skin is to increase collagen levels. Since collagen production slows as early as the late twenties and early thirties, the skin can begin to show the loss of firmness and elasticity. Collagen induction therapy, or CIT, can restore more collagen in the skin. Continued treatments can slow the aging process and improve the skin appearance. Benefits of CIT include:
- Smooth lines and wrinkles
- Shrink larger pores
- Improve skin tone
- Repair skin damage from acne and sun exposure
- Tighten and firm the skin
Collagen induction therapy using microneedling or other treatments can stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair and rejuvenate.
