It is an advanced skin needling procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthy, younger looking skin.
It can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles and stretch marks. It can be used alone or as an adjunct therapy with dermal fillers to treat difficult acne scarring as shown recently on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies – Diagnosis Live.
How does it work?
A Genuine Dermaroller medical device produces thousands of micro-medical needle columns in the skin. Each column penetrates into the dermis of the skin, closing rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly. The micro-medical skin needle columns stimulate a wound healing response, encouraging fibroblast proliferation and collagen maturation and remodelling, which tightens the skin, enhances skin architecture and improves skin appearance.
After a Genuine Dermaroller therapy procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. New collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced.
Stretch Marks on the breast, abdomen and legs.
Immediately after your Genuine Dermaroller Therapy you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1-2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day. Chiroxy cream provided by your practitioner will help soothe and calm the skin and SPF50 is recommended following the procedure. Make up can be applied 12 hours after the procedure.
How long does the treatment take and how long will results last?
A topical anaesthetic is applied approximately 30 minutes prior to the treatment to numb the skin and make the procedure comfortable and approximately 20 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy procedure. After a week there begins to be an improvement in the texture and tone of the skin, from 3 weeks onwards improvement in pigmentation begins and from 6 weeks onwards an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and scarring begins. The process continues over the following months, providing a natural ad long lasting enhancement. A course of 3 treatments are normally recommended with approximately 6 weeks in between them, occasionally more treatments are required.
Genuine Dermaroller Dermastamp
This is again a sterile single use medical device that is designed for maximum precision to repeatedly puncture deep scars and lines. It can be used in isolated areas or in combination with the Genuine Dermaroller for the treatment of larger areas.
