COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)

MICRONEEDLING

This remarkable innovation in aesthetics treats the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and other scars, stretch marks, and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Automated MicroNeedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT is a remarkable innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and other scars, stretch marks, and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.  During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, and unlike lasers, there is no thermal damage.

WHAT AREAS CAN I TREAT?

Eclipse Micropen™ can be used on all parts of the body, face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse Micropen™. Your Spa Beleza skin care professional will apply the recommended serum to your skin and selects the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in three directions until the entire treatment area has been covered.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micropen™ is that of a mini-vibrational feeling. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip and a topical anesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

The appointment is scheduled for 60 minutes. The skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic for 20-30 minutes and the procedure takes about 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?

Immediately after the treatment, you will notice redness to the skin for 24 to 48 hours. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours; others have some skin sloughing up to day 4 of the treatment.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Some patients only require a single treatment to see results. However, a series of 3 times is recommended to achieve optimal results. Then, 4 times a year is recommended for maintenance. Your Spa Beleza Aesthetician will guide you to what is best for your skin type and conditions.

CIT with RADIO FREQUENCY 90 MIN $420 / SERIES OF 3 $1,134

Additional Areas $210

Radio Frequency gently stimulates the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate new collagen.  RF uses low-energy radiation to heat the deep layer of your skin called the dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen to help improve signs of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Although you will see immediate results with your treatment series, radiofrequency treatment continues to promote collagen production over the next 4-6 weeks. It also increases elastin, the protein that improves elasticity in your skin, and it boosts collagen production by up to 20% for a healthier and more youthful complexion by reducing the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.

The effects of RF treatments will continue to improve over the next few months as the skin produces new collagen.  Results typically last for a minimum of six months, although with ongoing treatments, results are often long-lasting.
