The use of the Dermaroller in skin treatments is known as advanced micro skin needling. The Dermaroller is a chemical free treatment that improves the appearance of acne scarring, sun damage, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation problems and stretch marks.
The action of the Dermaroller encourages the skin to naturally repair itself by increasing collagen production to aid healing. Collagen is a group of naturally occurring fibrous proteins. Collagen promotes a youthful skin as it plays a major role in maintaining skin strength and elasticity. New skin cells are generated and the blood supply is enhanced.
The action of the Dermaroller makes it a non-intrusive treatment. Aside from a redness of the skin for up to 48 hours, there are no painful post-treatment effects. The effectiveness of the treatment is not affected by day to day activities including playing sport or going to the gym. This makes the use of the Dermaroller a very convenient option.
The use of the Dermaroller is very far from being a temporary or ‘Quick Fix’ solution. The full benefit of the treatment is often not realised until some time after the treatment. It can take up to 6 months to obtain the full results and the regeneration process continues over the following months.
