Collagen Induction Therapy

The fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction via fragmented delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Our procedure provides controlled precision that allows for the three phases of CIT mechanics of new collagen growth to occur. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur. The last phase of CIT and the Dermapen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing procedure and because the process never involves heat or thermal energy or other chemicals or unnecessary trauma, the skin can quickly heal with almost zero downtime!


“PLEASE pass along to Danielle that I am amazed at the early results of the DermaPen!! Honestly, after less than 24 hours I see a very marked difference in my skin and reduction of lines! That procedure is practically miraculous! No problems at all just one tiny patch of redness on my chin. Thank her for recommending this!!!! I’m thrilled!”

“I was skeptical about the results the DermaPen procedure would have, but Danielle convinced me it was an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles, with little down time, if any. I ve had two DermaPen procedures so far, and preparing for my third final one. This is an AMAZING procedure and she was right on about the minimal down time. Plus, it s quite cost effective, compared to other procedures. It takes awhile to see the results (not like injections that show immediate results) – but if you can wait 3-4 weeks, the change is incredible. I am getting a lot of comments about how much smoother my skin looks…love the procedure, love Danielle and love Dr. Tzikas!!! -JMDelray”
