FAQ

Collagen is a protein that is essential to cellular renewal, skin strength, volume and elasticity. Collagen protein makes up 30% of the total protein in the body, and 70% of the protein in the skin!
As we age, the body’s natural collagen production declines, and is further impacted by other lifestyle factors such as stress, poor diet, metabolic imbalances. CIT utilizes a medical grade, state of the art device to create controlled micro-channels on the skin surface. These channels stimulate the body’s natural healing process, triggering the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.
The treatment is combined with the use of medical grade serums containing Hyaluronic Acid, Anti-Oxidants, Peptides and Human Growth Factor (HGF). CIT provides a direct delivery system for these serums that are essential to rebuilding the cellular structure of the skin.
