Derma roller is an amazing skin roller which
can naturally increase your skin’s level of
collagen and elastin. Scars, stretch marks,
wrinkles and pitted skin are all a product of
insufficient collagen. Derma roller enables
your skin to rejuvenate and repair itself –
returning itself to its former condition, it
gives you firmer and younger looking skin.
The Derma roller (also called skin rollers, microneedle rollers) is a small hand-held rolling device it has 192 micro surgical steel needles that penitrate the inner surface of your skin to promote skin repair from the inside out. It stimulates elastin and collagen production within the skin without causing any damage.
For your comfort the skin is prepared with a topical anaesthetic that numbs the skin, it usually takes about 30 minutes for the anaesthetic to work. The roller needles penitrate the skin as the roller is passed 6 times over each area of the face.
The Derma roller therapy takes around 20-30 minutes to complete, afterwards your skin is treated with an oxygenating moisturising skin cream, and a sun block SPF50.
Following Derma roller therapy your body will start to naturally
regenerate and repair the skin, by 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.
Derma roller therapy generally consists of either a single
treatment for a quick boost in radience or a course of three
procedures with approximately 4 weeks between them.
The treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring may
require up to 5 procedures.
