The Dermaroller® is a German engineered medical device that uses micro-needling to stimulate your skin to regenerate itself for a smoother, brighter, younger and healthier look.
It’s an effective treatment for acne scarring, sun damage, facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks. A topical anaesthetic is applied so you remain comfortable while the micro-needle columns penetrate the dermis, which takes about 20 minutes.
Immediately after the procedure you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside over the next 24 hours and your body will start to regenerate and repair the treated skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen and skin cells are generated.
It’s recommended that you use tepid water to cleanse your face until the redness has gone and we will advise you on protective UV and anti-oxidant products to use afterwards, which will also enhance the rejuvenation process.
It can take up to six weeks for visible signs of regeneration and repair to be obvious and the process will continue over the following month, ensuring a natural, long-lasting effect. For optimum results, we recommend a series of three procedures, each approximately six weeks apart.
