The micro needles of the roller penetrate the top layers of the skin to cause pin-point micro-injuries in the deep layers. This triggers the body’s natural wound healing response resulting in new collagen and elastin formation over the subsequent weeks.
Dermal Pen CIT therapy stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Because of micro trauma caused by gentle injury to the skin, the body will respond with increased fibroblast activity collagen and elastin production is increased, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. This results in thicker Epidermal Skin. During CIT dermal micro-needling, transmitted Growth Factors (TGF) signals stimulate and accelerate the cell proliferation. This means, cells are turning over at a quicker pace keeping the skin clear and luminous. (skincareRX HYDRAFIX is used during needling not only to assist with the procedure, but so that the skin can absorb the benefits of the regenerating, calming and protective ingredients that support skin barrier function).
