The phrase ‘microneedling collagen induction therapy’ might sound a bit daunting but there’s no need to be concerned!

It’s my goal to introduce this treatment to as many people as possible, and the best way to do that is by explaining all the benefits that you can expect from such a procedure.

If you’re dealing with dull, lax skin that isn’t what it once was, microneedling collagen induction therapy (also known as CIT) could be perfect for you.

Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy Explained

There are several ways to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. A highly effective method that I use at my clinic in Marlow, Appearance-Based Medicine is the derma pen.

This particular form of microneedling collagen induction therapy helps to improve skin health through the use of controlled microtrauma, which causes the body’s natural healing process to create new collagen and elastin fibres as it reacts to small amounts of controlled ‘damage’. 

Essentially, by doing this, our skin gets tricked into renewing itself!

What Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

During this procedure, I will use the DermaFNS pen®, which uses incredibly fine needles (0.25mm-2mm) to gently treat your areas of concern and kickstart the process of ensuring it looks radiant and healthier.

Who Would Benefit Most From Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy?

There certainly isn’t an age limit on this treatment.

At Appearance Based Medicine, I find that those dealing with the signs of ageing tend to visit me with a host of concerns. In many of these cases, I recommend microneedling collagen induction therapy with the DermaFNS pen®. This is because it has the ability to treat a range of concerns that my patients find themselves dealing with at the same time.

This is largely because the signs of ageing seem to creep up on us and more often than not, it can feel like you’ve suddenly woken up to see a different person in the mirror. However, this isn’t the case. As we start to lose collagen and elastin fibres, our skin begins to sag and become duller than it once was, with fine lines and wrinkles appearing gradually.

What is a DermaFNS Pen®

As we age, the rate at which our skin cells replenish themselves also slows down, leading to a dull complexion over time. Some see this process start in their mid-twenties, with it becoming more evident when they get into their thirties and forties.

I certainly don’t think anyone should resign themselves to dealing with ageing on their own, which is why I recommend microneedling collagen induction therapy to so many of those who visit me.

What Concerns Can Be Treated?

There are several concerns that can be treated through the use of microneedling collagen induction therapy, most of which are related to the ageing process and the issues many of us face as time passes.

The DermaFNS pen® can help to improve the following:

Uneven skin texture
