Collagen induction therapy (CIT)




Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin) in order to induce endogenous production of cutaneous collagen. CIT is often referred to as "microneedling" or "skin needling" in media and literature, however it is important to distinguish CIT from other contexts in which microneedling devices are used on the skin, e.g.transdermal drug delivery, vaccination, etc.

The procedure usually involves a specialized device which can take the form of a manual rolling device or an automated stamping device. The rolling devices, also known as "microrollers" have been used since the late 1990s and marketed under various names, such as the "Dermaroller"® invented by the founder of the eponymous company Horst Liebl and patented in 2000. The automated microneedle stamping devices, or "microneedling pens", are typically powered by a motor and can be adjusted for frequency (stamps/second) and depth of the microneedles. These "pens" are also marketed under various names, such as SkinPen, DermaPen and Micropen.

Ailesbury Clinic also provides Dermaroller -PRP /633 fibroblast stimulating treatments. Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with  platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.

Red light phototherapy is a treatment that involves exposing the skin to relatively high intensity light in the red spectrum. The purpose of the treatment is to reduce skin inflammation and accelerate healing. Depending on the treatment, the precise wavelength of the light used can range from 600 nm (orange/red) to 850 nm (infra-red).

Derma roller treatments are known to boost your skin’s renewal process, making it looking younger by new collagen synthesis. This is triggered with skin needling and additionally supported by the use of Sh-Polypeptide botantical stem cell extracts. This serum also uses active biomimetic polypeptides to help activation of normal skin. Generally serums also include vitamins A, C, and E for new skin regeneration and support your skin in the process of new collagen building.
