Dermaroller and Dermapen micro-needling therapy can help with any of the following conditions:
- Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
- Improves stretch marks
- Improves fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring and wound healing
- Minimises pore size
This procedure involves using skin-needling, micro-medical methods that cause the skin to repair and regenerate in a safe and natural way.
The treatment consists of a medically designed device that generates thousands of micro-medical needle-columns within the skin. These columns reach into the dermis layer of the skin and they are on average 0.1mm width and up to 2.5 mm in depth. Each column is quickly closed, which allows skin to achieve a fast recovery rate. A topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin for about 40 minutes so the procedure is as comfortable as possible for the patient. The Dermapen or Roller is then manoeuvred around all facial contours with the needles piercing the skin.
Treatments are recommended with a six week interval between procedures – although these treatments may be extended if the scarring is particularly severe. This is because the therapy can take time to repair and regenerate the skin. New collagen is produced, cells in the skin regenerate and enhanced blood supply is encouraged. The end result is brighter, smoother, younger and healthier looking skin.
