What is Dermaroller?
A truly revolutionary treatment creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.
Dermaroller offers all the benefits of lasers and other ablative methods without the cost and downtime.
Dermaroller works to increase the production of collagen with minimal damage to the skin’s protective layer. And it allows for enhanced penetration of skincare products by up to 40 times more.
Dermaroller benefits include:
- Suitable for all skin types (including Asian and Oriental skin type)
- Does not cause skin damage (no ablation/removal of the epidermis)
- Does not induce skin sensitivity to UV light
- No risk of permanent skin discolouration
- Can be used on thin skin formerly treated with chemical peels and laser
- Can be used on the face, neck, décolleté and any other parts of the body requiring treatment
- Cost effective treatment alternative
- Short or no down time
How it works
We use genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns that penetrate into the dermis of the skin. These columns close rapidly, enabling the skin to recover quickly - often in the same day.
Your practitioner will apply an anaesthetic cream to numb the skin, ensuring the procedure is comfortable. It takes up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy procedure.
When the genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ is complete and your skin has been cleansed and soothed, your skin will feel a little warm and tight and appear as if a little sunburned.
Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ works by stimulating your body to start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. Over the next 6 weeks, as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced, you’ll notice visible signs of regeneration and repair, this will continue over the following months, giving a natural and long-lasting enhancement.
We advise that to maximise effectiveness, your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ consists of a series of three Genuine Dermaroller™ procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them.
To treat acne scars or other types of scarring, your practitioner may advise extended genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™, carrying out up to five procedures.
