Collagen is the main protein in the skin that keeps it firm and smooth. As you get older, your collagen levels decrease, allowing the skin to become thinner and loose, causing sagging, lines and wrinkles. To combat collagen loss and aging skin, certain treatments can be used to induce collagen production. As part of our med spa services at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer collagen induction therapy, or CIT, at our clinic in Miami.
When the skin is injured, one of the healing responses is to produce more collagen to repair the skin. Lacerations, burns or punctures to the skin will induce collagen production, but they can also damage the skin. Collagen induction therapy uses this healing response in a controlled treatment to trigger collagen production without damaging the skin to help tighten and firm the skin for a younger appearance.
CIT can help improve the firmness, texture and tone of the skin. With a series of treatments, CIT can result in less lines/wrinkles, a more even skin tone, fewer discolorations and smoother texture.
