Electro Collagen Induction Therapy
Electro Collagen Induction Therapy (ECIT) is virtually a pain-free treatment performed with a machine of tiny micro needles. The needles create thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin to stimulate your body's own natural electrical response.
These natural electro signals induce your body's natural human platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), fibroblast growth factors (FGF) and transforming growth factor (TGF). This will increase blood circulation to the penetrated area, regulate cell growth and division and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The rejuvenation process can continue for up to 12 months.
ECIT is a non-invasive procedure using a topical anesthetic for absolute comfort. It is a safe and sterile treatment performed by our trained dermal practitioner and has minimal downtime. Disposable needles are used to eliminate risk of cross contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. It is effective in treating hard to reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose and lips). ECIT is great for treating atrophic and surgical scars because of its ability to effectively penetrate and break down scar tissue.
You can expect smoother skin that looks refreshed, restored and youthful. The treatment is performed using a rich dose of stem cell therapy that are deeply penetrate into the skin's dermal layer in combination with the natural human derived growth factors further supporting collagen and elastin production.
ECIT is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation therapies available today for the treatment of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crows feet
- UV damaged skin
- Overall skin rejuvenation
- Large pores
- Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
- Stretch marks
- Smokers lines around the lips.
Most people will need a series of 3 - 6 treatments depending on what is being treated and the desired outcome. The treatments are spaced at 4 - 6 week intervals depending on the intensity of the treatment performed.
Acne and Surgical Scars
ECIT improves the appearances of acne and surgical scars. The micro needles create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited in the areas of the scar. It breaks up fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Plus there is the added benefit of new capillary growth, which improves the blood supply to the area providing a healthy foundation for the new skin. ECIT keeps the integrity of the epidermis intact, which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age the natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes which leads to wrinkles and sagging. Wrinkling in the skin is also caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. ECIT promotes a process of new skin growth throught the science of Collagen Induction Therapy.
ECIT treatments not only target specific imperfections but also provide rejuvenation of the skin. The needling process improves microcirculation in conjuction with collagen and elastin formation beneath the skin to thicken the dermis reducing wrinkles. You wlll notice improved skin texture, more even skin tone as well as an overall brightness to your skin. Undergoing a series of ECIT treatments will not only provide visible results to the entire appearance of your skin but it slow down the signs of aging.
Minimise Pore Size
ECIT treatments will results in a more refined appearance of the pores tha appear larger from congested pores and aging skin. As we age and the elasticity in our skin decreases, our pores will appear larger. ECIT treatments stimulate collagen and elastin, which results in firming of the skin resulting in reduction of the appearance of large pores.
Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-colour shade. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but will not disappea completely. ECIT treatment offers a progressive and natural solution to stretch marks. The treatment stimulates healthy collagen and elastin production in the deeper skin layer to repair the damaged areas with the release of growth factors and stimulatio of fibroblasts. Everyone will experience improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks with ECIT but results are individual and depend on the severity, age and extent of the stretch marks. Early red stretch marks will result in the most improvement.
