Collagen induction therapy (CIT) / Microneedling

As we age our skin loses its density. This leads to fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone. Excessive exposure to the sun and sun beds can also cause skin pigmentation.


Collagen Induction Therapy or Microneedling is Innovative procedure which involves application of multiple superficial micro-traumas to the skin with tiny and sterile needles, as a result the body’s self-healing wound process is triggered. The
releasing GROWTH FACTORS stimulate FIBROBLASTS creating new COLLAGEN and ELASTIN in Dermis layer of the skin. In order to carry out CIT, the practitioner can use a derma roller or Dermapen. In Healthy Roots clinic we use a Genosys Dermafix pen which provides safe and precise technique of this procedure.


Why Dermafix Pen?

  1. VERY SAFE and HYGIENIC ! Each cartridge of needles is a single use unit and sterilized by EO gas, sealed in the sterilised blister.
  2. MULTI EFFECTS. Number of needles per cartridge is 16, the other needling devices have 12 in general. This allows larger number of skin penetration. The needle length can be adjusted, which allows more effective and affordable treatment for a patient with a multitude of skin conditions.
  3. MINIMAL PAIN! Hexagon shape of the needle provide minimal pricking sensation. Topical anaesthetic is optional and usually do not require.
  4. LOW COST! Only 3-5 sessions a year required. This will depend on severity of skin damage, underlying conditions and age factor.

In the weeks following your treatment you will start to notice changes in the texture and tone of your skin as new collagen is formed. This process takes at least 6 weeks and continues for 6 months or more to provide a natural and long-lasting enhancement. For best results we recommend a course of 3 treatments spaced out in 4 weeks intervals. A maintenance treatment every 6-8 months.
