is a fabulous anti-aging and rejuvenating treatment for treating wrinkles, age spots, scarring and hyper-pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, hands. This procedure causes a cascade of collagen production.  The production of new collagen and elastin induces a younger, healthier, plumper and firmer skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and better tone, texture. It gives an overall radiance to the skin.

With numbing cream and single use 12 or 36 pin disposable cartridges, the treatment can be performed on all skin colors and types, and is often preferred over laser treatments as there is no risk of burning and damage to the epidermis. This technique can be done on sensitive areas like around the eyes & mouth and body areas like hands and chest and any spot areas for improvement of skin tone and texture. It is customised to address your specific skin type and needs. Treatments are recommended in a series of 6, one every 4 to 6 weeks depending on target.

CIT Pen Nano Infusion from* $159 for a single treatment

So what exactly is nano-infusion and how does it work?

 

Single use sterile tips are used with a Collagen Induction Therapy pen to create thousands of micro pathways in the top layer of skin. This creates space between the brick and mortar layer of dead epidermal cells so that ingredients can pass through and penetrate deeply to the lower layers of skin. Better absorption means better results for plumped, nourished, radiant skin. The best part is that there’s no downtime!

You can have this done the same day as a special event.

The disposable Nano cartridge is suitable for all skin types. This cartridge feels flat to touch thus NO numbing cream is required. On the Eyes it helps lash line to stimulate hair regrowth and tighten eye lids. Lips are plumped instantly. Aids in up to 97% better absorption compared to topical application of active ingredients that stimulate cell regeneration.

 

*These prices are for the full face & neck.
