Micro-needle (CIT) Collagen Induction Therapy Atlanta
Micro-needling is a safe, chemical-free method that triggers new collagen production, also known as, collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularization and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, cellulite or stretch marks.

Dr. Lisa M. DiFrancesco answers your questions about micro-needling and NEOVA DNA Total Repair products.
How does micro-needling work?
A micro-needling device creates extremely tiny wounds. The body reacts by producing new collagen, elastin and capillaries in the skin – resulting in rejuvenated, firmer skin with improved texture and fewer wrinkles.
Does it hurt?
The needles are extremely tiny and only impact the most superficial layers of your skin, so most people feel minimal or no discomfort and there is very little bleeding.
How much downtime is there after the procedure?
There’s no anesthesia used and virtually no downtime. Your face may look pink and slightly puffy immediately after micro-needling – icing for a few hours will help.
Are there topical products that really improve the skin?
Yes. Studies have shown NEOVA DNA Total Repair products successfully target and repair damage to DNA in skin cells, rejuvenating skin. It’s important to be assessed by a doctor familiar with these anti-aging treatments to find the NEOVA products best for your skin’s needs.
