CIT INFORMATION

What you need to know before & after your procedure

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • For best results: Rejuv recommends follow-up and repeat microneedling treatments every 4-6 weeks, with a series of 3-5 treatments depending on your personalized care plan

  • CIT stimulates the skin's natural ability to produce collagen by creating multiple micro-channels to the skin with sterile disposable needles

  • CIT stimulates new collagen and this can improve fine lines, wrinkles, reverse years of sun-damage, enhance skin tone and texture, improve acne scars and hyper-pigmenation.

  • Time of the treatment is 30-60 minutes.

  • PRP (platelet rich plasma) or serums/peptides are used during the treatment.

PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • Avoid the sun prior and post treatment-the sun can cause scarring, color changes and poor healing.

  • To reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising avoid the following for 2 days prior to treatments: Alcoholic Beverages, Anti-inflammatories, Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Bilba.

  • Side effects associated with CIT can include infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, bleeding, & bruising.  

  • If you have a history of cold sores please notify the NP for possible pre-treatment medication prior.

POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • After treatment you can expect skin tightness, red/flushed appearance that usually last 6-24 hours.

  • Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating as well as jacuzzis, saunas, and steam baths for up to 48 hours.

  • It is ok to use makeup after 24 hours.

  • Sleep on your back with the head of the bed elevated to minimize swelling or pain as needed.

  • Day 1-3 A sunburn-like effect is normal. Your skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to touch. Treat the skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser, cool water, and using only your hands to pat dry 5 hours after the treatment or the next morning

  • Day 2-7 Peeling may start 3-5 days after the treatment. You’ll notice skin dryness and flaking which is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. DO NOT pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! Important information: You must allow the old skin to flake off naturally and keep it moisturized at all times. 

  • Day 3-7 You may start your regular skin care products again, once your skin no longer feels irritated. Most of our patients have noticed continued skin improvement over the months following their last treatment.
