Dermaroller Collagen induction therapy - A Complete Guide

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is proven to be one of the most successful methods to boost your collagen production levels naturally with the help of a derma roller. This therapy has also been effective at improving scars, enlarged pores, cellulite, and stretch marks.
Before starting using a skin needling roller, it is best to understand how it works, its effects, and your available options. In this article, we will cover all these aspects so you can make an informed decision and get all the benefits of collagen induction therapy.


What is Collagen Induction Therapy Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure done by applying light pressure to the face or other treatment area using skin needling rollers. The tiny needles of the rollers pierce the top layer of the skin to activate the wound healing response to stimulate collagen production naturally.

Also knows as collagen induction therapy, this treatment allows a new layer of skin to be formed after the damaged skin is shaded. Microneedling treatments trigger the body’s natural process to release collagenase around the wound which helps the skin repair itself and become smoother. According to studies, skin needling will accelerate collagen production by up to 1,000 % in just one procedure.

The new collagen and elastin production will help improve various skin conditions and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Besides this, it will give your skin a natural and healthy glowing aspect.

How to Perform Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy?

Microneedling can be done with a derma roller. When using the device on your skin surface, it must be held almost parallel to the skin and applied with little pressure. Gently move the roller across the treatment area in one direction to make sure you penetrate the skin evenly.

To ensure the correct usage of the derma roller, White Lotus has prepared full video instructions on the product page - Hypoallergenic Dermaroller. All White Lotus products also come with full instructions and ongoing support.

The quality of the skin needling roller is essential when performing the treatment. Choosing a cheaper version will not bring you the desired results because they are simply not produced using scientific principles and appropriate technology.

Our derma rollers have strong and sharper needles to assure you will get the best results. We use needles of 0.30 diameter (this is not the length) that withstand one year of use before being replaced, while most rollers use 0.15 mm wide spikes that need replacing after the first month.

Collagen Induction Therapy Side Effects?

In general, there are little to no side effects depending on how the procedure is done, the skin’s condition, and the quality of the product used. There have been reported minor skin irritation and a tightening sensation after the treatment, but most of them are normal and will disappear shortly.

The redness that appears after dermarolling is a sign that the natural process of healing and collagen induction has begun. CIT treatment is contraindicated if you have: irritated skin, active acne, chronic skin diseases (psoriasis, eczema, etc.), open wounds, and high scar tendency. Additionally, if you are undergoing or had radiotherapy or chemotherapy recently, microneedling is not recommended for you.

What you can do to prevent other adverse reactions such as nickel allergy is to use Hypoallergenic dermarollers. All White Lotus derma rollers are hypoallergenic and metal-free. Avoid buying imitations that are non-sterile and can cause skin complications.

Can You Perform Collagen Induction Therapy at Home?

Yes, CIT treatments can be done by yourself at home. Prior to microneedling, make sure to read and follow the usage recommendations such as choosing the right needle length and product quality, cleansing the skin before applying and using only light pressure, afterward use the appropriate serum.

Microneedling practiced at home can be as efficient as the ones in clinics. To achieve the same results, you must carefully choose the right size and quality of the needles. Usually, people tend to buy derma roller with a needle size too big for anti-aging purposes, which can cause damage to the skin (by penetrating it too deeply).

Our clinical experience has proven that 0.5 mm sharp needles (insert product link) provide the best results. Dermarolling with 0.5 mm needles is done deep enough to stimulate collagen production, but without causing any harm to the skin.

Collagen Induction Therapy Before and After

The collagen induction starts almost 48 hours after the treatment was done. The results can be gradually seen between 3 to 12 weeks, while the new collagen will last 5 to 7 years. Your skin will look smoother, and the aging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

The pictures that illustrate the skin’s aspect before and after the microneedling prove the undeniable benefits of this treatment. Besides reducing the age spots, CIT may assist hyperpigmentation by causing the skin to regenerate and produce large amounts of collagen.

Collagen Induction Therapy Consent Form

When microneedling treatment is performed at clinics, the patient is required to sign a consent form. The document describes the procedure, contraindications, and possible side effects and risks that the recipient is exposed to during the therapy. Please read it carefully before signing.

A consent form will help you understand if the procedure is right for you and what to expect from it.

The most important aspects you should look for when buying a skin needling device are quality (material, machine assembly, etc.), brand reliability, and product specifications (needles size, allergens, etc.). These characteristics make the difference between great results and harmful outcomes.

You might be tempted to choose a cheaper product, but if you look closer, you will see they don’t meet any of the required criteria for safety and efficiency, as you will find in our roller devices.
