Here at myskindesign we are excited to introduce you to the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy™ The procedure provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
What is it used for?
The treatment significantly improves the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and ageing skin, acne scars and certain types of stretch marks.
How does it work?
The dermaroller medical device produces thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day. A topical anaesthetic is used to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the dermaroller procedure.
How long does it take before you see results?
Post-procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, 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.
We will normally recommend a series of three Genuine Dermaroller™ procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary to carrying out up to five procedures.
Any side effects?
Apart from significant redness of the treated skin for 2-3 days post procedure there are very few other side effects. It can also be used safely and effectively on darker skin types.
