Collagen Induction Therapy in St. Louis
Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines and acne scars and improving the skin’s overall appearance. The highly trained and experienced aestheticians at West County Plastic Surgeons Spa in St. Louis will glide a sterile, single-use, surgical-grade disposable needle tip across your skin to create superficial micro-injuries. This technique stimulates the regeneration of skin cells, known as re-epithelialization, leading to a smoother skin color and texture.
Every person has unique skin needs and requirements. At West County Plastic Surgeons Spa, micro-needling will usually take 60 minutes, which includes a topical numbing phase. The variable needle depth feature afforded by micro-needling enables your professional aesthetician to customize your treatment for best clinical results.
