The Dermaroller is a cylindrical drum, studded with high grade, fine, stainless steel needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to stimulate proliferation of the skin cells. This cell multiplication results, in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres, as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply. This procedure is called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The Dermaroller improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, new collagen fibres, an improved blood supply and harmonises pigmentation.
Since Dermaroller does not use thermal heat (unlike IPL and Lasers), it is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colours. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Dermaroller Collagen Induction Therapy procedure works by stimulating your own body’s collagen. Your body will start to naturally regenerate the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. New skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It will only take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a gradual & long lasting enhancement.
Scar Reduction Therapy
Dermaroller Scar Reduction Therapy procedure works by releasing old fibrotic scar tissue deep within the skin. Scar tissue is what creates visible scars on the skin’s surface. The treatment will repair the skin naturally, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen and elastin fibres are formed, softening scars, generating new skin cells & enhancing blood supply. Results can be seen within 6 weeks, and a total of 70-80% improvement of scars.
