Micro-Needling/Derma Roller Therapy

Micro-Needling/DermaRoller Therapy


How does it work?

The concept behind needling is the stimulation of new collagen production in your skin. The needle breaks the skin and causes micro-trauma and micro-inflammation. Your body responds by sending blood to the area for healing. As your skin repairs itself, new collagen builds up just below the surface. The wrinkles, lines, or depressed scars plump from the bottom-up without the use of anything artificial. Repeated needling sessions gradually and continually build new collagen to fill-in the treated areas.

The gentle stimulus provided by Micro Needling is far more “skin friendly” and thus far more effective than many other more invasive and more expensive skin treatments. Micro-channels seal within hours after application: long enough for new collagen-structures to form within the lower layers of the skin and short enough to allow you to resume normal schedules quickly.

There may be some reddening of your skin following this procedure which looks similar to a case of mild sunburn. But this will ease after an hour or so. Apply a mild cream or soothing gel to your skin which will help to ease any discomfort as well as keeping your skin smooth and supple. Choose a cream, gel or lotion which contains vitamins as these will help to boost collagen production.

Dermaroller is a successful form of treatment for most skin conditions. However, everyone reacts differently to this treatment which applies to any form of cosmetic treatment.

It is difficult to predict an individual’s response to this treatment but it work’s well for most people. There are various factors which need to be taken into account which include your age, diet and current state of health.

Dermaroller is effective at treating the following skin conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Scarring/scar tissue
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Surgical scar repair
  • Sun damaged skin

Dermaroller treatment usually consists of 3 sessions followed by a period of 6 weeks before any further sessions.

The number of sessions you require will depend upon your skin condition. In some cases you may need as many as 5 treatment sessions.
