What is Dermarolling?

Dermarolling is an innovative technique that micro-wound method used for curing a wide array of skin problems. Dermarolling is often used in conjunction with other procedures as most skin areas can be treated. The Derma Rollers are used to remould the skin by creating thousands of micro-channels through the skin to increase the formation of new tissue which activating the body’s healing process. The micro-channelling process causes the release of growth factors that promote scar-less healing. This is caused by the breaking the skin through the punctures created from the derma roller which stimulate collagen production.

A microneedle derma roller is a handheld small device that is studded with fine surgical steel microneedles.  The Aesthetician uses a skilled technique which involves the precise movement of the derma roller over the skin. When you elect to do Dermarolling, you will be given your own roller which is used only for your treatment. There is no chance of cross infection as the roller is removed after treatment and cleaned.

Dermarolling is a non-ablative and natural aesthetic procedure. Most skin areas can be treated, popular areas include the face, neck check, hands and abdomen.

When Do We Recommend Dermarolling?

Dermarolling is a perfect solution for a wide range of treatments. It was designed for those who want to have their skin rejuvenated, target the effects of ageing, acne, acne scarring, enlarged pores, scarring and stretch marks. Dermarolling is a superb treatment option for those who do not want to undergo major cosmetic procedures and is an excellent addition to other skin rejuvenation procedures.

What Is the Typical Course of Treatment?

The Derma Roller uses micro-needles which penetrate the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This process leads to the thickening of the skin and smoothing out of the skin texture and appearance. The micro-needles create micro-channels that are opened in the skin due to the action of the treatment which aids in increasing the absorption of your daily skin care products. The Derma Roller leaves the epidermal barrier intact and the micro-channels which are created by the rolling of the micro-needles close within a few hours after your treatment. The Dermarolling technique creates new collagen structures to form in the epidermis and due to the non-invasive treatment, you will be able to resume normal activities.

Dermarolling is a perfect solution for a wide range of treatments, including:

  • Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation
  • Healing acne scars and wounds
  • Improving wrinkles and fine lines
