Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine. CIT is a procedure by which the body’s natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of collagen or elastin in the skin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Collagen Induction Therapy improves the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skins overall appearance.
South Coast Plastic Surgery utilizes the Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System for CIT procedures. The Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System utilizes 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts it’s natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.
