Derma Rollers

face_chin_02Derma rolling is a natural process of skin rejuvenation and skin healing, which stimulates the natural production of collagen in the skin. As skin ages, it loses the ability to produce elastin and collagen, which helps the skin look young and fresh, as effectively. Ageing skin doesn’t hold moisture as well as younger skin, and as a result can start to sag and wrinkle. A derma roller is a collagen induction therapy, which uses micro-needling to puncture the dermis (skin’s outer later), with tiny, precise needles mounted on a roller. Opening the skin’s pores temporarily is treated as damage by the body, which works to regenerate it, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Alongside rejuvenating ageing skin, derma rollers can also be used to treat acne scars, uneven skin tone, post pregnancy stretch marks, skin pigmentation and sun spots.

Derma rollers

Q. Can derma rollers help reduce the appearance of scars?

A. Yes, it improves the texture of scars because…

Q. Does it hurt?

A. We apply a numbing cream before the treatment, which numbs your skin for between and hour and a quarter and an hour and a half, while we carry out the derma rolling.

Q. Will I look red after the treatment?

A. Your skin will look slightly swollen and a bit red for approximately 24 hours, and feel firm and tight in the 48 hours after that. We’ll give you an oxygen cream (an oxygen-rich chiroxy cream) to apply to maximise the amount of oxygen your skin absorbs after the process and induce the production of collagen.   It’s possible that your skin will bleed during the process, as the derma rolling creates tiny pricks in the skin’s surface, but this is perfectly normal…

Q. How long does the treatment take?

A. You’ll see a collagen boost around six weeks after your first treatment, and that’s when we recommend you have your second one. A third treatment a further six weeks later completes the course, so a derma roller procedure usually takes place over approximately three months.
