Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT which is also called Microneedling is the process that naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it.
Collagen Induction Therapy stimulates the body’s own natural production of collagen, thereby reducing wrinkles and improving skin texture. Here at Manhattan Skin and Laser treatment Center, the principle behind collagen channeling using the Collagen Induction Therapy treatment is simple.
When it is applied to the skin, under local or topical anesthesia, a sterile roller with very fine needles is used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen.
Before & After
Collagen Induction Therapy is effective in treating the following skin conditions:
- Acne Scars
- Stretch Marks

It can take up to six weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months. Results are long lasting.
Here at Manhattan Skin and Laser treatment Center, we recommend a thorough consultation with our technician to determine your skin type, what condition you are treating and the results you are looking for.
