Dermaroller is a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. This can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, facial lines & wrinkles and stretch marks.
The Dermaroller medical device produces 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. A topical anaesthetic is used to numb the skin first, making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy 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 tremendous benefits of Dermaroller Therapy are not only the fantastic clinical results but the excellent safety profile and lack of down-time associated with the procedure. Because the Dermaroller medical device is of such high quality, with precision surgical needles that are incredibly sharp and fine and a medically engineered design (including needle-length), minimal pressure is required to achieve the creation of the multiple skin-needle columns and virtually no unnecessary peripheral damage is caused to the skin. Therefore, we can achieve optimum stimulation of the dermis, whilst keeping the outer layer of the skin the epidermis intact. This reduces the risk of exposure to UV and minimises the social down time.
