Dermaroller is a tried and tested procedure that is proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin which naturally diminishes as we age. There has been little evidence that anything can reverse this process. Dermaroller is one treatment that has been proven to do so. It is the loss of collagen and elastin over time that produces lines and wrinkles as our skin becomes less elastic and starts to sag. Dermaroller provides advanced skin micro-surgical needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Dermaroller is unique amongst other skin care treatments as it is safe, a
natural skin rejuvenation process. It is perfect as an alternative to other
beauty treatments for acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles, as Derma Rollers
do not damage the skin or remove the epidermis layer.
What is the Derma Roller ?
The Derma Roller is a single roller device which consists of a rotating wheel studded with tiny 1.5 mm long needles. These needles penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn cause the skin to mount an injury response. This procedure utilises the collagen and elastin to thicken the skin, repair scars and smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles. This stimulus also causes growth of new capillaries which improves blood supply to the skin. Dermaroller is a natural skin rejuvenation and scar repair therapy that can significantly improve the appearance of:
* Reduces Acne Scarring
* Improves the resolution of scar tissue
* Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
* Levels the tonal quality of the skin
* Improves the appearance of stretch marks
* Enhances skin rejuvenation
* Great for anti aging
The process involves rolling a small barrel covered in very fine and small needles (1.5mm) quickly over the area to be treated in six directions. The needles puncture the skin and part the pores of the top layer of skin without damaging it. The process however is read as damage by the body and growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin are triggered. The skin renews itself every 40 days and therefore with 3-6 weekly treatments you see noticeable changes which grow with every treatment. Dermaroller is particularly good for acne scarring which is otherwise difficult to treat and is used in NHS acne clinics for that very need. The skin will regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin Alongside this, atrophic (sunken) scars also respond very well. Dermaroller is safe for all skin types and colours.The treatment usually takes around 20 minutes, depending on the area being treated and any specific problems that need concentrating on. As it produces some pain you will need to arrive 45 minutes before your treatment time to have a local anaesthetic cream applied.Is the Derma Roller treatment painful?
No the treatment is not painful, but it can be mildly
uncomfortable. The skin is numbed before treatment either with local anaesthetic
cream or nerve block. After the treatment you may feel as if you have slight
sunburn for the next 12-24 hours.
