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.
It is the loss of collagen and elastin over time that produces lines and wrinkles as our skin becomes less elastic and 'saggy'. There has been little evidence that anything can reverse this process. Dermaroller is one treatment that has been proven to do so and is used in NHS hospitals to improive acne scars via this process of scar breakdown and collagen stimulation.
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 4-6 weekly Dermaroller 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. 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. It is suitable for any body area, including face, back, chest and thighs. As it produces some pain you will need to arrive 45 minutes before your treatment time to have a local anaesthetic cream applied.
