Dermaroller (also called a skin roller or micro needle) is a small hand-held rolling device that has multiple rows of short microsurgical needles for penetrating the skin. The technique is also called 'skin needling' and 'Collagen Induction Therapy'. Dermaroller treatment stimulates production of new collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in a smoother younger appearance. The treatment is used for skin rejuvenation and is effective on Acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermaroller treatment can be performed on the face and body. Prior to the treatment we use a topical skin numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable. Dermarollers are available with needles of different lengths and our experienced practitioners will advice you on which size is best for you. The decision is based on the location and severity of the skin condition.
Dermaroller treatment can significantly improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Aged and sun damaged skin
- Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
Dermaroller treatment stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.
After a Dermaroller treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen and elastin 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 gradual and long lasting enhancement.
