Dermaroller or otherwise known as microneedling is a medical roller with hundreds of micro-skin needles. As the Dermaroller is passed across the skin it causes small micro punctures in the skin surface that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing.
Dermaroller is a cutting edge collagen induction therapy working to produce thousands of microscopic needle holes in the dermis and prompt the skin to produce new collagen, elastin and generate new cells.
Microneedling is a great treatment for you if you have darker skin because it doesn’t involve peels or lasers, which can cause pigmentation.
Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face, although prices are based on an area the size of the face.
The best results from Microneedling are seen after a course of treatment.
Microneedling can help with a variety of conditions
Dull skin – rejuvenate tired and dull skin and combat the initial signs of ageing.
Wrinkles – fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be visibly reduced, as Microneedling triggers collagen production.
Scarring – scars from acne and Chicken Pox can be improved and an uneven texture can be smoothed out with Microneedling.
Pigmentation – can help to fade dark patches such as pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the area before carrying out Microneedling treatments to ensure any pain is minimised. Variable treatment intensities allow us to further control the comfort of the treatment. No topical anaesthetic is needed for Microneedling Pen Revitalise & Rejuvenate as the treatment isn’t deep enough to cause any discomfort.
What Is The Aftercare Advice for Microneedling?
After your treatment, your skin will appear red and flushed, which a good sign that the treatment is working and this will subside within a few days. SPF 30 should be worn daily following on from the treatment for at least two weeks. An ongoing effective daily skincare regime is crucial to help promote and achieve optimum results.
When Will I See Results from Microneedling?
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results. The process will continue over the following months and several treatments are usually required.
