Nano Infusion Therapy

What is Nano Infusion Therapy?

All of our micro-needling/ CIT and Nano-Infusion cartridges have been specially designed for safety. Cross-contamination is eliminated by blocking the migration of fluids. All cartridges are made with a silicone lock to prevent back-flow. 

The Nano cartridges are suitable for all skin types. This cartridge holds microscopic silicone tips. It feels flat to the touch as opposed to the 12 tipped needle cartridges.
This disposable nano cartridge is safe to be used up to the lash line on the lower and upper eyelids to stimulate lash growth. The nano can be used on the lips, eyelids, scalp, & body safely. 

The Nano - Infusion treatment gives the treated skin up to 97% better product absorption of topically applied product. 

The Technology:
CIT Pen’s sterile,  Nano cartridges are available in silicone or surgical steel. The only difference between the nano silicone and nano surgical steel cartridges are the materials used. The premise of the treatment is the same for both cartridges. The pyramid-like tips are specially made in a microscopic size. The diameter is thiner than one single strand of human hair, and almost invisible to the naked eye. This allows for a safe treatment with no down-time and no numbing cream needed as the tips to not invade the dermis regardless of depth.

How does CIT work on a cellular level?

As the CIT pen creates micro-channels into the skin, pores are temporarily opened allowing the enhancement serum to be fully penetrated. Micro-point punctures in the skin are created. This is a controlled injury to the skin and is perceived by the body as damage. This stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of Collagen and Elastin. Skin reacts to this CIT treatment by initiating the healing process which encourages your patients’ skin to continue to regenerate.

How is the CIT treatment administered?

 

A licensed skin care professional glides the CIT pen over professional strength AnteAge growth factors, HMW Hyaluronic Acid, or sterile saline in a cross link, circular pattern, or stamping motion over the skin to puncture the epidermal layers of the skin and create microscopic subcutaneous injuries. These microscopic channels in the skin allow for optimal product absorption. The microscopic injuries created with the CIT Pen stimulate a repair response & new collagen production with minimal to no downtime for your patient.

When should a patient expect to see results?

With our automated CIT Pen micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself. The process of micro-needling skin remodeling can continue to enhance for months after treatment as the skin continues to repair itself. Results can be seen within a few days to a week. Skin naturally heals itself every 45 days so by simply adding micro-needling stimulation the changes can be accelerated and your client will see results. Depending on the patients’ expectations and personal goals we recommend a series of CIT Pen sessions to speed up the process and achieve optimum results. However; skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment!

What to expect after a CIT pen treatment?

Immediately following treatment, your clients’ skin will have some redness and flushed in appearance like a moderate sunburn. The patient will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to the treated area as well as some peeling (depending on the depth). At 24 hours and up to 36 hours, after treatment, little to no evidence of injury to the treated area is visible, however tightness and peeling can occur.

Can the CIT Pen be used on ethnic skin types?

 

Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colors and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact (as long as post-care instructions are followed). 

Other invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are not recommended for Asian or African American skin due to the potential risks of delayed wound healing, pigment changes, and scarring. However, with Collagen Induction Therapy/ Micro-needling, the potential risks on ethnic skin are unlikely due to the epidermis remaining intact.

Can CIT help clients with Rosacea?

Mild Rosacea, can be improved. When the Spinosum layer is strengthened through CIT the collagen stimulated will support the dermal papillae, which will reduce the appearance of broken capillaries. CIT is NOT intended for pustular, nodular Rosacea.

How many treatments will each patient need?

The number of CIT treatments depends on your clients’ current skin condition and goals. Three to four treatments may be needed for moderate acne scars. Scars from thermal burns and stretch marks may require between 6-10 CIT sessions. The added Collagen lasts up to 12 months and a refresher treatment is recommended every 6 months to 1 year in order to fight the signs of ageing. Your client should be advised that multiple sessions may be needed to reach their desired results in order to meet their expectations.

Best practice and optimal results come from you; the professional providing your clients’ with proper pre and post care instructions.

Is Micro-needling/CIT painful?

The variety of needle cartridges along with the CIT Pen’s ability to gage the needle depth allows this treatment to be customized to fit each of your clients’ needs and comfort levels. Application of local anesthetic numbing cream and internal use of CBD supplements can prevent treatment discomfort.

Are there any side effects to micro-needling/CIT?

This treatment typically recovers at a rapid rate & redness subsides within 24 hours. Negative side effects should not take place if you are following proper protocol. Professionals should never treat a client with any listed contraindications (see below). Swelling during the recovery phase can occur, skin infection with bacteria (rare) or herpes simplex virus (cold sores), Milia, which can be easily removed and mild acne flare ups may occur after the treatment. If any of these symptoms persist and/or worsen please have your client seek immediate medical attention. As the microscopic channels to the skin close quickly, postoperative wound infection is extremely rare. Emollients and/ or topical antibiotics may be prescribed, if considered necessary.
