Dermaroller – Skin rejuvenation and scar repair.
Used For: Significantly improving the appearance of facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and ageing skin, acne scars, stretch marks and surgical scars.
The Dermaroller is a single-use medical device available only from trained practitioners and should only be performed by a Registered Nurse or a licensed physician.
This treatment employs advanced medical micro-needling, a procedure which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, healthier, clear younger-looking skin.
After an initial consultation with our registered nurse, if it is agreed that you will benefit from this treatment, local anesthetic is applied to the affected area so as to numb it and is allowed to work over the course of 30 minutes. The actual dermaroller procedure takes 20-30 minutes and is virtually painless. Following the treatment, a combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Growth Factors are applied and should be continued to be applied at home for the next couple of days. For the fist 24 hours post-procedure, the affected area will look red and may be slightly swollen (very similar to the appearance of mild sunburn). This is the normal expected result and is not painful.
Although significant results are often seen following the first treatment, your practitioner will generally recommend between 3 and 5 treatments for optimum and long-lasting effects.
This treatment is contra-indicated if there is a tendency to form hypertrophic or keloid scars.
Contraindication to microneedling:
Use of oral steroids in the last 12 months, anti-coagulant treatments, chemotherapy or radiotherapy, diabetes, angina, epilepsy, keloid or hypertrophic scars, active herpes simplex (cold sores) or other skin infections, pregnancy and breast feeding, history of skin cancer, laser resurfacing or skin peel in the last 6 weeks, allergy to local anaesthetic, and active acne
Dermaroller is safe for use for anyone above the age of 18 who needs to repair their skin from acne scarring, surgical scars or who would like to improve texture and appearance of skin and reduce reduce lines and wrinkles. Dermaroller delivers essential vitamins and nutrients into skin much like skincare products but on a much deeper level therefore is a more worthwhile investment.
