What is Collagen Induction Theraphy (CIT)?

The principle behind Collagen Induction Theraphy is simple: to stimulate the body's own production of collagen. this is accomplished by mechanically stimulating the deeper layers of the skin, which results in the start of the repair process. The device is a surgical stainless steel roller comprised of 192 fine needles which are used to puncture the skin and intensely stimulate the production of collagen. These punctures, and there are thousands, produced by rolling the device accross the treated area, become the focal point for the body to produce its own collagen.

In 2006 a German plastic surgeon proved in an internationally published study that the Dermaroller, studded with needles ranging from 0.5 to 1.5mm in length, induces the body's own production of collagen between 200 and 1000%.
