Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating fine lines and improving of the skin’s overall appearance.
During this procedure, the SkinPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The skin’s repair process results in global improvement of the skin’s appearance while decreasing wrinkles.
Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be combined with topical gels, creams and serums to treat a variety of skin conditions including melasma, acne, and dry skin.
At Refresh Dermatology, Dr. Chilukuri has chosen SkinPen ® Precision, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market.
