I am an authorised (http://www NULL.genuinedermaroller NULL.co NULL.uk/GenuineDermarollerClinics NULL.aspx) provider of Dermaroller™ microneedling therapy. The Dermaroller was developed in Germany as a treatment to reduce the severity of acne scars. During the research that was done to evaluate its effectiveness for acne scars it was discovered that dermaroller microneedling therapy can significantly improve the appearance of:
- Uneven, thin or pigmented skin
- Open pores
- Aged and sun damaged skin
- Facial and neck wrinkles
- Stretch marks
This gallery shows the before and after photos of clients who have had dermaroller treatment.
The treatment consists of 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.
The device produces thousands of micro-medical 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. I will use a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable.
After treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin. I will recommend a post-treatment revitalisation and rejuvenation cosmetic pack that will work with the dermaroller therapy to reduce pigmentation and reduce wrinkles.
Q. Does dermaroller treatment cause a lot of redness and skin peeling?
A. No. One of the big advantages of Dermaroller treatment is that the downtime with dermaroller is minimal. The redness usually only lasts for a day and in most cases is quite mild. A mild amount of skin peeling takes place about a week after treatment.
Q. Can I get bruising with Dermaroller treatment?
A. No, bruising is not a problem with Dermaroller treatment. The needle length is 1.5mm, which is not enough to penetrate any deeper veins that might cause bruising.
Q. Can I have Dermaroller treatment if I have active acne?
A. Yes, I have a number of clients with active acne who have regular dermaroller treatment and find that it is very beneficial to acne control as well as the beneficial effects on acne scarring and pigmentation.
Q. Can the Dermaroller be used under my eyes and on my eyelids?
A. Yes, under the eyes and on the eyelids is a good place for Dermaroller treatment as these are areas that are hard to treat with other non-surgical means, with the exception of Pelleve.
Q. How many treatments will I need?
A. I normally recommend three treatments spaced a month apart. For deeper acne scars and more severe stretch marks I recommend five treatments.
Q. How often can I have dermaroller treatment after the initial course?
A. I would normally recommend a top-up once every six months.
Q. Can Dermaroller treatment be used for all skin types?
A. Yes. This is one of the big advantages of Dermaroller treatment, it can be safely used on all skin types with minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Although this is a theoretical risk with any kind of treatment that provokes a reaction from the skin, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation has not been reported after dermaroller treatment.
Q. I’ve seen the 0.5mm dermaroller on various websites, is this just as good as the 1.5mm dermaroller?
A. No. If you want to activate the collagen induction process in your skin, research has shown that the 1.5mm length is ideal.
