Microneedling / Fractional Collagen Induction Therapy (F.C.I.T)

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling or F.C.I.T. utilizes precisely spaced micro needles to create microperforations into the dermis. The body reacts to this trauma by sending blood to the area for healing. Blood platelets release clotting factors, cytokines and essential growth factors. The fibroblast cells undergo cell division and produce collagen. Collagen deposition is responsible for plumping the skin and reversing the visible signs of aging. Fibroblasts also make and deposit new extra cellular matrix collagen and elastin. As the skin repairs itself new collagen builds up in the papillary dermis. Collagen is shifted from collagen III back to collagen I . The result is wrinkles, lines, scars and stretch marks plump from the bottom up without the need of anything artificial. It takes about six weeks for new collagen synthesis and about six months for the full effect of the treatments, however clients will begin seeing results after the first treatment. A series of treatments will gradually and continually build new collagen to fill in the treated areas. The collagen and elastin matrix will continue rejuvenation for up to 12 months with results lasting 7-10 years.

The area to be treated is numbed making this a comfortable, painless procedure. The skin will be nourished, oxygenated, and restructured from the inside out – all without destroying the epidermis.

May be performed on the whole face or in specific regions.
