Dermal Roller Therapy (for treating acne and stretch marks)
Dermaroller™ is a natural skin regeneration and scar repair therapy, involving advanced skin micro-needling - a process that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely to create smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin.
Who is the procedure suitable for?
Dermaroller™ is suitable for anyone from the age of 18 upwards who suffers from any of the following:
- Acne scars;
- Aged and sun-damaged skin;
- Facial and décolletage lines and wrinkles;
- Stretch marks
What can I expect?
We apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the skin about 30 - 45 minutes before the procedure to make the experience more comfortable. A small roller is then run across the area to be treated, penetrating the dermis and stimulating your collagen to regenerate naturally. A small amount of mineral make-up can be applied if you are conscious of any redness. You will be able to return to work on the day you have your treatment. A minimum of two or three treatments are usually required, spread four to six weeks apart. Acne scars and other types of scarring may take up to six treatments to reduce.
Dermaroller™ provides excellent results. Bear in mind that it can take up to six weeks before visible signs of repair and regeneration are seen.
