Dermaroller™ is a definitive credit-crunch skin rescue option. Simple yet effective and suitable for all skin types and tones, it offers laser-like results for sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines and stretch marks at a fraction of the cost. Results include skin tightening, improvement in texture, pore size reduction and improved capillary blood supply. This device is great for anti-ageing, enlarged pores and acne scarring as well as stretch marks.
It works by producing thousands of microscopic needle pricks in the skin’s dermis, stimulating the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. These close rapidly, enabling the skin surface to recover quickly. The treated areas may experience symptoms of mild to moderate sunburn but normally recover the same day, with only a little residual redness the following day. The natural regeneration and repair that the Dermaroller™ creates can take up to six weeks to develop as over time new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and the blood supply is enhanced.
After cleansing, the area is covered in topical anaesthetic cream for an hour to ensure a comfortable experience. The area is then treated in sections with the Dermaroller™. Once complete the area is then re-cleansed and moisturised. There are virtually no negative side effects.
