Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling RF or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. CIT should be separated from other contexts in which microneedling devices are used on the skin, e.g. transdermal drug delivery, vaccination.
What is Innopen?
The Innopen is a medical device with tiny micro needles that are thinner than your own hair! When the needles penetrate the skin, hundreds of microscopic “pin pricks” are created. As your skin heals underneath, it uses your own collagen to fill the “valleys” of fine lines and scars naturally without removing the top layer of skin. Collagen is what your body produces to keep your skin youthful and healthy.
Microneedling is a natural skin revitalisation method that fills and softens lines and scars. It does not use chemicals, fillers, injections, or lasers. The Innopen doesn’t burn your skin, dissolve it, or abrade and scrape it. The Innopen does not inject serums or solutions; it only permits deeper infusion of topical applications (e.g. peptides, anti-oxidants, hyaluronic acid and hair growth formulas) thereby increasing the product effectiveness.
Once the tiny micro channels are created by the needles, the barrel itself has a unique way of mechanically pushing the topical serums inside the holes and finally under the skin. It is a well-known fact amongst experts that a lot of active ingredients in normal cosmetics are wasted because the molecules are too big to penetrate into the skin and therefore just sit on the surface with no effect.
However, if you wish to benefit much more from your cosmetics and their ingredients, the best possible solution is to combine your skin care products with regular microneedle therapy.
