Collagen Induction Therapy - Micro-needling procedures - CIT

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a procedure that improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, loss of firmness, brown spots and stretch marks by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself.  A device with tiny, sharp needles is used to create hundreds of micro-channels in the skin.  This process triggers the release of growth factors and cytokines, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in younger looking skin.

During a treatment, the skin is cleansed thoroughly, then a topical OTC anesthetic numbing cream is applied that keeps the client comfortable during the procedure. The micro-needle glides effortlessly over the skin with the use of a topical serum or saline solution to create a glide on the skin’s surface.  The micro-channels created are a pathway for the delivery of optimal ingredients into the skin while keeping the barrier intact.  This is what makes CIT preferable to many of the ablative treatments available which destroy the top layer of the skin.  The invisible channels close up very quickly so there is minimal risk of infection.

Microneedling is a well-tolerated and cost-effective treatment that is suitable for most skin types and conditions, including sensitive skin, darker skin, Rosacea, fine and deep lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, acne, scarring and stretch marks.  It may be performed on the face or body with excellent results.  Due to the channels created in the skin, the skin will be red and feel irritated which may last for a few hours up to three days.  There is often a light peeling of the skin on days 3 – 5 after the treatment.

Continued improvement may be seen 4 to 6 months after the initial treatment.  For best results, a series is recommended.  Please consult with your skin care professional to design the best plan for your skin and to see if you are a good candidate.

NeoGenesis and Microneedling are a perfect match.  Our Recovery Serum boosts the skin’s ability to regenerate using the patented S²RM® technology and may be applied both before and directly after the needling is complete.  Inflammation and irritation will be dramatically reduced while the skin benefits directly from added growth factors. Intensive Moisturizer will keep the skin hydrated and improve barrier function after the treatment.

Special Note:

Microneedling treatments, as performed by Aestheticians, are regulated by the governing Board in each area.  Please refer to the governing body in your country for guidance on performing Microneedling.

“I am 64 with Asian skin and I use the Recovery with a dermal roller followed by the Skin Serum and Barrier Renewal Cream. I am receiving nothing but compliments about how good my skin looks. All of the discoloration and uneven skin tone is gone. I will add a few drops to one pump of the body lotion for my upper arms and the skin is firming. In the AMs we use the Booster followed by the Skin Serum.” ~ D – Skin Beautiful RX

It’s so soothing and hydrating. As a professional Aesthetician, I can tell you have never seen anything like the NeoGenesis products.” ~ DB

Before & After - Microneedling“I am a licensed Esthetician who has become a big believer in NeoGenesis Recovery for many of my treatments. I want to mention a client with over-stimulated skin due to her home care protocol of too many actives at one time. During her first Collagen Induction Therapy session, and as a brand new client, I could barely perform the treatment as her skin reacted with large red welts and some pinpoint bleeding at a very shallow needle depth.  During that time she remained red for over 2 days.  The redness should have dissipated in a few hours.  Fast forward one month to the second treatment.  My client was compliant in her home care. During her treatment I used Recovery prior to the micro-needling and immediately after.  The difference was remarkable!  The first photo shows my client immediately after her second treatment.  The second photo shows her in less than 20 minutes post treatment!  This is taken in natural light with absolutely no makeup or filters.  I am a believer and Recovery will definitely be in my protocol for micro-needling.” ~ PV

“This serum is worth the money. I used it after face microneedling and the redness and irritation afterward subsided within 20 minutes. It also really helped bring sustained hydration to my skin. Didn’t feel the need to reapply any hydrators on my usually dehydrated skin. I also used it on days when my skin was too sensitive for acids/retinoids for maskne and it helped resolve almost all the comedones. Although it’s pricey, will definitely repurchase a larger size.” ~ C – Skin Beautiful RX
