Collagen Stimulation Therapy | Approved Ireland Salon | IIAA
Dr Des Fernandes, Environ Founder and Scientific Director, is the world pioneer in non-invasive skin rejunevation.
"Skin needling induces collagen and elastin production by employing the body's natural mechanisms that for the first time, as far as we know, produces regeneration of the skin and its matrix. There is no scar formation and the procedure can be safely repeated until the desired effect is achieved."
Dr Des Fernandes
This non-invasive facelift procedure assists in stimulating the release of growth factors which results in the synthesis of healthy collagen and elastin, leaving your skin looking younger, tighter, firmer and healthier.

What is Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)?
Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as micro-needling, is a non-invasive medical instrument.
As instrument known as a Medical Roll CIT, house hundreds of 1mm fine needles, that will be used by trained Skincare Professional to make tiny needle punctures through the outermost layer of your skin, creating microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface of your epidermis.
It is scientifically proven that Collagen Induction Therapy helps to stimulate the release of special growth factors which results in synthesis of healthy collagen and elastin and initiates the wound healing process. As a direct result, a stronger and healthier collagen and elastin network is created, and a thicker epidermis is formed making this non-invastive procedure the ideal treatment for the overall improvement of your skin's health, wellness, texture and quality.
Collagen Induction Therapy can be used to rejunevate skin that appears to have the following conditions:
Fine lines and wrinkles
