Dermaroller is a hand held roller which has surgical steel micro-needles, which are able to part the pores of the skin without damaging it. The pores close again about an hour later.
Dermaroller is done for treating Acne Scars, Stretch marks (following pregnancy and weight loss), Wrinkles and Pigmentation. This induces collagen production which is responsible for more strength and elasticity and fills up the depth of pits and thereby reduces the scars. The Dermaroller has special medical graded stainless steel needles that perforate the scar tissue easily. The scars become softer, less depressed and will give natural appearance.
Local anesthetic cream is applied 30 minutes prior to treatment to ensure the procedure is comfortable.
After a Dermaroller procedure body starts to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is increased. It can take 6 weeks before signs of regeneration and repair are visible and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting improvement.
Therapy consists of a series of three Dermaroller procedures with approximately 6 weeks gap between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other scars it may be necessary for your dermatologist to extend your treatment, up to five procedures.
