One of the hottest new trends in aesthetics involves natural healing without added chemicals. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a micro-needling procedure that enhances your skin quality through plasma derived from your own body. When injected into trouble areas using a microneedle, this plasma promotes rapid skin healing and rejuvenation.

What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Cell therapy, the science of harnessing, and using the body’s own healing and reparative properties, is the latest development in anti-aging technology. Known for over 30 years to stimulate healthy tissue and bone repair after injury, the technique is now being applied to heal and correct the damage of time and environmental factors to the face and body. Developed in 2010 by Dr. Charles Runels as alternatives to expensive and invasive surgical procedures, the CIT Facelift® and CIT Facial® are popular Hollywood treatments with global demand.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) Treatment Options

The CIT series of treatments get its name from its use of plasma, which is extracted gently from a patient’s own blood. Typically, after injury, these cells are stimulated to begin rebuilding lost tissues. The CIT Facelift® and the PRP Facial® are two CIT treatments at Refresh Med Spa LA and represent the clinic’s commitment to bringing the safest, most effective, and most innovative treatments to you.

CIT can provide youthful appearance to the hands which is highly recommended to coincide with the facial rejuvenation.   

JUVÉDERM® and CIT Treatments

JUVÉDERM®, the world’s most popular dermal filler from Allergan, is used in concert with the CIT Facelift® to provide instant results and bridge the gap between the initial treatment and the final result. The process for the CIT Facial® is similar but doesn’t include injections to treat lost volume, it concentrates to improve and enhance the skin. It has been used to treat acne scars, skin injuries, irregularities, rough texture, and much more.

In the case of the CIT Facelift®, the cells are reintroduced to the treatment area to stimulate and produce new collagen growth for up to eighteen months.

CIT Hair Restoration

A wide range of elements—including heredity, stress, illness, medical treatment, and nutritional issues—can lead to unwanted conditions of thinning hair and hair loss. For example, 40% of women experience thinning hair because of menopause, and one in four women are predisposed to hereditary hair loss.

According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss by the age of 35, and by the age of 50, approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.

CIT Stem Cell Hair Boost procedures combine a proprietary vitamin complex with stem cell transfer, micro-needling, and Collagen Induction Therapy to stimulate new growth, enhance existing hair follicles and hair density, and prevent shedding.

Best performed in thinning areas, the treatment can also achieve a degree of new growth where the hair is missing completely. Prior to the treatment, the patient undergoes a three-to-four-month regimen of nutritional supplements designed to prepare the hair and scalp for optimum results.

The in-office protocol itself includes three key steps:

  1. Vitamin Boost. A special Vitamin D and Vitamin B complex are injected into the site to nourish the cellular structure. 
  2. Plasma Boost. Your own blood is refined to produce a plasma that is injected into the site to increase the production of new blood cells in the hair follicles. 
  3. Micro-needling. Finally, tiny needles, no larger than a hair’s width, are inserted into the site to speed up blood circulation, reduce the “resting” phase of the hair follicle, and put those follicles on notice that it’s time to get busy!


Sexual Wellness With CIT / PRP

Both men and women can enhance sexual performance and restore their confidence levels. CIT not only rejuvenates the physical appearance of the vagina, which commonly loses elasticity and firmness over time, it can also provide a powerful “boost” to a woman’s sexual functionality.

Our Orgasm Shot technique produces physiological rejuvenation, stimulating cells, and leading to more lubrication, more elasticity, and heightened sexual pleasure. We have also discovered that the technique can be effective for managing urinary incontinence. As part of the protocol for men, the Penile CIT-shot uses blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate aging erections by increasing collagen and elastin fibers, smoothing muscle mass, and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and nerves. Patients experience stronger and longer-lasting erections with variable size enhancement.

Anti-Aging and Sexual Dysfunction

The Orgasm Shot is a very specific method of using blood-derived growth factors that stimulate stem cells to grow healthier vaginal tissue.

  • A Tighter Vagina.
  • Younger, Smoother Skin of The Vaginal Lips.
  • Increased Lubrication.
  • Increased Clitoral Size.
  • Greater Arousal from Clitoral Stimulation.
  • Stronger and More Frequent Orgasms.

It’s not only about the cosmetic & sexual benefits. The Orgasm Shot has been shown to decrease the effects of Urinary Incontinence and The Orgasm Shot is the only alternative to off-label medicines and therapy.


The Experience

  • Numbing cream is applied to the vaginal area 30 – 40 minutes before the procedure.
  • 2 teaspoons of your own blood are drawn.
  • A state-of-the-art PRP machine spins the blood to a high concentration of powerful plasma.
  • PRP is then carefully injected into the small tissue between the Clitoris & Urethra.
  • There are no allergic reactions because your own body’s fluids are used.
  • Little to no pain at all.
  • See and feel instant results.

Patients are encouraged to repeat this treatment every 18 months for continued and optimal results.
