Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) / Micro-needling + Nano-Infusion
The Esthetics Academy caters to the true professional who is ready to uplevel their skill by investing in themselves for their future and their clients' results. This is an involved training from the cellular function to hands-on techniques. To become a true expert in this craft, it takes putting in the time studying at home and during class. If you're looking for a quick in & out class or if you're not at a place where you can dedicate focused energy, we suggest our virtual, self-paced option instead. We want everyone in our training to be successful and just as important as patient selection is to this treatment, so is only selecting professionals who are ready to focus their energy on learning.
In our signature course, you’ll learn all about the science of Collagen Induction Therapy, which is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand treatments in the esthetic industry. You’ll be equipped to identify possible red flags and contraindications, determine suitable candidates for Micro-needling and Nano-infusion, and have an in-depth comprehension of various techniques along with unbiased information on the array of pre and post-treatment options to be used with Nano-Infusion, Cosmetic & Medical depth Microneedling to achieve safe and exceptional results for you and your client’s based on the desired results.
In our opinion, nothing compares to feeling the proper amount of pressure and practicing various techniques in hands-on training and receiving the treatment for yourself so you can experience the amazing benefits first hand! In our uniquely curated course, you will learn all about Nano-Infusion, Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) aka Microneedling, LED Light Therapy and other unique tools you can incorporate into your treatment room protocols. As long as you have no absolute contraindications, you will be receiving this treatment for yourself by a fellow licensed professional with the guidance of your instructor.
We expect all students to come to class prepared and with any questions they may have from their pre-study materials provided upon purchase. This will allow more time to work hands-on with your instructor the day of class. We have curated an online CIT Certification platform which you will have lifetime access to as The Esthetics Academy student. We do require all participants to review and study this platform as well as take our online CIT Exam prior to attending their hands-on course to receive their official Certificate of Completion.
Our CIT Course includes full-size, pre and post-care products, and consumables for ongoing treatments allowing you to see a successful return on your investment. Below you will find all items included in your CIT hands-on course purchase.

Here is what you can expect from your time spent in class:
- Proper Client Selection & Contraindications: The beginning of class will be spent reviewing students' Client Health History forms & possible Contraindications to be conscious of. You will practice reviewing real health history forms to practice finding possible contraindications and examine the variety of nuances and exceptions that exist within the practice of Collagen Induction Therapy/ Microneedling and Nano-Infusion Treatment parameters. Your instructor will review any missed questions from the CIT Exam for clarification and dive deeper into explanation on those topics if needed. We encourage students to come to class prepared with specific questions from their time pre-studying the provided materials so we can review them during the lecture portion of class.
- Social Media Marketing & Service Promotions: We will share marketing strategies and techniques that have proven to be successful in advertising the service offerings and all of the many concerns the treatments address. Photos and videos will be taken throughout class for students to access, download and use for future marketing on all social media platforms.
- Unique CIT & Nano Treatment Additions & Product Review: Following the lecture, students will start prepping their skin for treatment. During this time, your instructor will introduce the synergistic products and modalities you will be working with in class, most of which are also included in your take-home kits. We’ll discuss the benefits of incorporating AnteAGE Mesenchymal Stem Cell Cytokines in combination with CIT and Nano-Infusion and choose the product(s) best suited towards the students' skin concerns and long term goals before embarking on our hands-on treatment experience!
- Hands-on Practice: We will be working hands-on for up to 5 hours, offering students a full treatment experience with Herbal Skin Solutions products and various modalities. Once students are prepped and numb (if necessary) they’ll have the opportunity to both give AND receive a full face CIT & Nano-Infusion Eye treatment (as long as you’re willing and no Contraindications are present) under direct supervision of the instructor. All treatments offer the option of incorporating gentle enzymes, Celluma Pro LED light therapy, MySkinBuddy cleansing tool and Saian Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber for added benefits! You will also have the option to treat a small area of the body for additional hands-on experience and protocol exploration.
- Q&A: Once all CIT treatments have been completed, instructors will take any final questions from participants and pass out their Certificate of Completion.
