Microneedling is also known as CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy). It is a proven, skin-rejuvenating procedure that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. After the application of a topical numbing cream, very fine needles puncture the skin at specific depths to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin. This new collagen makes the skin look and feel smoother, firmer, tighter and more radiant. This treatment is safe for all skin types and offers long-lasting results.
At Vitality Kaua’i, we can also incorporate the use of PRF into the treatment. To prepare the PRF, the patient’s blood is drawn and processed. The Platelet Rich Fibrin, which is rich in growth factors, is then separated from the red blood cells. During the procedure, this PRF is microneedled into the skin to speed up and amplify the results of the treatment.
Microneedling with PRF can be used to treat:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
