Collagen Induction Therapy

Let CIT’s unique “acupuncture” amp up the regeneration of your skin’s natural collagen.

Why look older than your years? Collagen Induction Therapy will recapture that youthful texture and glow by infusing your skin with all-natural, physiological regulating formulations that rebuild collagen.

Wondering where all that collagen went?

As we age, our skin’s ability to produce collagen diminishes. Depending on our lifestyle proclivities, from too much sunning to unhealthy habits like smoking or poor diet, collagen breakdown can leave us looking much older than our years.

Collagen Induction Therapy plays an important role in rebuilding collagen by infusing the skin with all-natural, physiological regulating formulations, through a unique system of “acupuncture” utilizing micro-needles. It can be used as either a stand-alone treatment or in combination with lasers, depending on age and skin conditions. Your skin still has the power to regenerate collagen. It just needs a little boost from CIT!

What is Collagen?

As we age, our collagen loses its structural integrity

As we age, our collagen loses its structural integrity

Collagen is a tissue that is perhaps most responsible for giving facial skin its youthful and healthy appearance. When you are young, new collagen fibers are produced by the fibroblast cells in your skin. The fibers are linked together in tightly-bundled, and densely organized, cross-bridging layers, known as “laminar” layers. They are responsible for the fullness, firmness, resilience and elasticity of your skin.

The Cause of Collagen Breakdown

Everyone will experience a slow-down in the amount of new collagen generated as well as an overall loss in the amount of collagen production as they age. Additionally, due to sun exposure and other physiological stresses such as smoking or diseases, the deterioration of facial collagen is inevitable, causing it to lose its structural integrity. The process is called “solar elastosis” and is characterized by the breaking of cross-bridges, and the disorganization and loosening of the laminar layers, which results in the appearance of enlarged pores as well as the thinning, sagging, and wrinkling of facial skin.

But just because you (and everybody else) inevitably experience a diminishing of facial collagen does not mean that the collagen cannot be revived!

Reviving Your Own Natural Collagen

Your skin is an amazing organ and comes equipped with a natural ability to revive new collagen through a variety of natural physiological mechanisms. 

To combat all this damage, your skin has a variety of natural mechanisms which:

  • Repair damaged fibers
  • Remodel disorganized layers
  • Remove fibers beyond repair
  • Generate new collagen

Collagen Induction Therapy utilizes protocols designed to interact with and stimulate these various mechanisms to naturally and effectively restore a youthful and healthy glow to your face.

AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s unique multiple-modality protocols engage each of these mechanisms, stimulating them to perform at a physiologically younger and more vital level, before aging and stress took their toll.

What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Collagen Induction Therapy (AKA microneedling) is a unique, holistic approach to collagen regeneration using all-natural measures to engage the patient’s very own physiology in order to recapture your facial skin’s youthful and healthy texture and glow.

CIT plays an important role in AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s collagen regenerating protocols as a stand-alone treatment, as well as in combination with our laser treatments.

How it Works

Collagen induction therapy uses a specially developed micro-needle system

Collagen Induction Therapy uses a specially developed micro-needle system

Collagen Induction Therapy is applied with tiny needles used to create micro-holes in the skin. The needles are exquisitely engineered much like acupuncture needles, producing holes of such precise shape and thinness that they completely heal in minutes.

Collagen Induction Therapy infuses the skin with all-natural formulations of Physiological Regulating Medicine. The formulations are infused into the dermis by use of specially developed micro-needle system comprised of an array of acupuncture needles.

In addition to the infusion of PRM formulations, the micro-needle treatment creates precise micro-holes that have the ability to induce changes in the micro-electrical currents flowing between cells, triggering the release of a wave of growth factors that cause new blood vessels to form, that nourish the migration of new fibroblast cells and the new young collagen that these cell generate.

The combined use of Collagen Induction Therapy with Physiological Regulating Medicines catalyzes and amplifies the production of new young collagen, detoxifies the Extracellular Matrix of the skin and improves the overall health of the skin every where on the body.

The Benefits 

Patients who want to restore their skin’s natural ability to generate collagen will most likely benefit greatly from Collagen Induction Therapy. The patients who will probably benefit the most are those who have noticed a collagen breakdown exacerbated by certain lifestyle choices, such as tanning too often or smoking.

The Results

The result of Collagen Induction Therapy is the creation of new, strong, and healthy collagen fibers throughout the patient’s skin, giving his or her face a younger, healthier, and more beautiful appearance.

CIT is just another example of how AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s unique multiple-modality protocols create a holistic partnership between your skin’s natural physiology and our advanced medical science. Your skin will look years younger, healthier and more beautiful on the outside, because you’re physiologically years younger, stronger and healthier on the inside!
