The Dermaroller Therapy provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
As we get older and environmental factors take place, such as pollution, stress, toxins from food, chemicals in products that we use and various other factors contribute towards our skin becoming worn, ageing and problematic in some cases. Naturally, collagen and elastin production starts to slow down, as a result of general aging. CIT is a treatment that can accelerate your collagen production and allow it to mimic a similar speed to what it may have been in your previous years, before your skin developed ailments or suffered from any damage.
We utilise some of the most effective serums, prescribed to your specific ailments and produce a uniquely tailored treatment.
The Skin Needling treatment using a dermaroller creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. By creating dermal damage without damaging the skin tissues healing time is rapid with quick results that will last.
This treatment is a safe, simple and virtually pain-free and suitable for:
Lines & wrinkles
Sun damaged & aging skin
Evening skin pigmentation
Lack of skin firmness & elasticity
Acne & chicken pox scars
Skin Needling produces similar results to Lasers and Deep Chemical Peels but is a much less invasive skin renewal technique at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime.
Dermaroller is a natural skin regeneration and Scar Repair Therapy also used in the process of stretch mark removal.
There are many reasons why people choose to have Dermaroller:
- To reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
- Rejuvenate and minimise signs of ageing
- Revitalise aged and sun damaged skin
- Reduce acne scarring
- Reduce stretch marks
The Dermaroller Therapy utilises sterile single-use medical devices. Our Aesthetic Practitioner will use a Dermaroller device to produce thousands of micro needle columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly - often in the same day.
After the procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
Skin Needling is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin. The treatment can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and neck. The micro-needling procedure creates thousands of micro wounds triggering new collagen synthesis. It allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism so the whole procedure is all- natural and fast. Treatment may also be known as Collagen Induction Therapy, or microsurgical needling.
The number of treatments required depends of the problem being treated:
- Rejuvenation – 3-6 treatment course
- Acne Scarring – 3-6 treatment course
There will be approximately 4-6 weeks between treatments.
You will need to allocate around 90 minutes to allow time for both the topical anaesthetic and the treatment itself, including post treatment aftercare.
The potential side effects of dermaroller treatments are minimal but may include post-treatment redness.
