Dermaroller therapy is an advanced procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of aged and sun damaged skin, acne scars, facial and décolletage lines and stretch marks.
The procedure involves a micro needling treatment that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. This helps create smoother, brighter, healthier, and younger looking skin.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
As the name suggests a medical “roller” device with micro needles is used to penetrate the dermis of the skin, to stimulate and encourage the body to produce natural collagen. This process of skin remodeling can continue for months after each Derma Roller treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within weeks. Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation, changes can be fast and dramatic.
AM I SUITABLE FOR THE TREATMENT?
Dermaroller therapy may be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Although popular on the face, it can be used all over the body too. It is widely used post pregnancy to help improve and tighten loose saggy skin and fade stretch marks, treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture. It is a simple and effective treatment with little or no downtime.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Typically treatments take between 30 and 45 minutes
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately after your Dermaroller treatment your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside 1 to 2 hours after the treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I REQUIRE?
Typically, Dermaroller therapy consists of three treatment sessions approximately 6 weeks apart. In the case of heavy acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary to extend the treatment beyond the three sessions.
