Dermaroller Therapy - Skin Rejeneration

Dermaroller Therapy is a new treatment to help rejuvenate the skin and help with the problem of ageing skin, sun damaged skin, acne scarring and stretch marks.

Dermaroller therapy utilises a technique called collagen induction therapy, or “skin needling”. What this involves is a specially designed medical device with multiple fine needle points is rolled across the skin. This causes miniscule pin pricks which the body in its wisdom sees as damage to the skin. It then goes about healing the injured area as it normally would any other wound.

The repair and regeneration process then begins as new collagen and elastin is produced and continues over the following few weeks, and over a course of treatments you will see much improved results.

What is surprising to most people is that the procedure is remarkably comfortable – it only requires a topical anaesthetic cream which is very effective to the depth required for this treatment. The experience will range from pleasant to only mildly uncomfortable; many patients have found it genuinely relaxing

The procedure itself takes around half an hour. Following the treatment the skin will appear red for a short while only, similar in appearance to moderate sunburn. Most of the redness settles rapidly over a couple of hours and is easily covered. The skin is usually completely recovered by the following day.

These results of this collagen induction therapy are equivalent to the results that can be obtained by aggressive laser treatments, but without the risks or downtime, and at a fraction of the cost. Dermaroller therapy is availble at Mulberry House cosmetic clinic.
