Environ Medical Roll-CIT™
What is Medical Skin Needling?
Medical Skin Needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is the latest skin rejuvenation treatment to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin, with minimal or no downtime
Medical Skin Needling causes “micro-injuries” to the skin to trigger the healing and repair process. Part of the body’s natural healing process is collagen synthesis (the making of collagen). Triggering the healing process means triggering the production of collagen. It is this production of collagen which acts to repair the damage to your skin: the result is a smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
Medical Skin Needling is much less invasive than lasers and aggressive chemical peels and doesn’t require the removal of the epidermis. As a result, the healing time is significantly shorter and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light.
Medical Skin Needling is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin, and can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on all parts of the body.
What conditions are suitable for Medical Skin Needling?
- Lines and Wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Loss of elasticity
- Acne Scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
Principle of Micro-needling
Environ Roll-CIT™ micro-needling causes microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface layer of the skin (epidermis). This action releases blood platelets that are responsible for blood clotting when,for example,when we cut ourself.
The blood platelets release a series of growth factors that promote the production of collagen, elastin, growth factors and other substances. In turn,collagen and elastin help to tighten and smooth the skin.
What is the Environ Medical Roll CIT made of?
What happens during my treatment?
Medical Skin Needling is performed using a sterile Environ Medical Roll CIT. It generally takes about 30 – 45 minutes
What will I look like immediately after treatment?
After the procedure, your skin will be red and flushed I appearance, looking similar to a moderate sunburn. You will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch. This will diminish significantly within a few hours of treatment, and within 48 hours will be completely healed.
When will I see results?
Visible signs of skin rejuvenation are seen just 6 – 8 weeks after the procedure and continue for up to a year.
How many treatments should I have?
A course of three Environ Medical Roll CIT treatments, at 6 – 8 weeks intervals, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results, however, great improvement can be noticed after just one treatment.
How should I care for my skin after a treatment?
You can enhance the results of your treatment with the Environ Cosmetic Roll CIT at home. This can be used on a daily basis between your Medical Skin Needling treatments.
What are the risks?
The risks are much lower than other treatments designed to achieve similar outcome like dermabrasion, lasers and deep chemical peels, which require the removal of the epidermis.
With Medical Skin Needling, there is a risk of potential scarring if the treatment is over-aggressively needled. And, if you don’t apply adequate sun protection during the healing period, you may be hyperpigmentation (pigmented markings) which normally resolves after about one month.

Cosmetic Needling reduces scarring and improves elasticity and thickness of the skin by stimulating the body’s own repair response, including the production of natural collagen and important growth factors. This treatment is based on a revolutionary approach to anti-aging through natural processes. The process facilitates and stimulates the skin’s natural repair and growth processes without causing any scarring or permanent damage. The primary function of this treatment is to cause microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface of the skin. As a response, platelets are released. A course of treatments (generally a minimum series of six), can typically result in the following: acne and minor scarring are reduced, fine lines and wrinkles are softened, the skin is naturally thickened, tightened, and elasticity is restored. Pigmentation marks are lightened, stretch marks are improved and the disappearance of dilated blood vessels is encouraged. Advantages: The healing period is minimal, and the process is suited for all skin types (including laser- resurfaced skin). No scarring is induced. It can be safely repeated for maximum results. No additional sun-sensitivity is induced. All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated.
