What is Dermaroller?
Dermaroller is a medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day. Your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the Dermaroller procedure.
After a Dermaroller procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
The Derma Roller is a revolutionary device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it. It can be used by both men and women and has numerous beneficial effects:
Scar Removal – including acne scar removal /
Stretch Mark Removal / Treatment
Cellulite Treatment / Cellulite Reduction
Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
How Does The Treatment Work?
The skin is like a photocopier and copies the damage that is left behind from trauma such as acne marks/scars/stretchmarks. Dermaroller is a way of reprogramming the skin and changing the structure so it will repair the damage.
The treatment uses a roller covered with micro-scopic needles rolled over the area in four different directions. The tiny needles pierce the skin causing a pin-prick bleeding and mind inflammation, breaking the connections around the scarring, allowing the new blood cells to repair any damage causing the scar to flatten and reduce as the skin naturally renews.
This mild trauma also stimulates the collagen and elastin in the skin promoting the production of new skin cells which will help to strengthen, plump and tighten the skin. This helps to refine fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall complexion of the skin. Therefore the treatment is suitable for all skin types.
As the treatment stimulates the natural cell turnover, we recommend a 4-6 week gap between treatments, for the best results you would need a course of Dermaroller
