What is the Genuine Dermaroller?
The Genuine Dermaroller® is a German engineered medical device which is used to carry out skin or micro-needling.
What is Micro-needling and how does it work?
The concept of micro-needling is based on the skins natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage. By creating micro “injuries” in the skin, it encourages your skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally by triggering new collagen synthesis. The result is brighter, firmer, younger looking skin without posing the risk of permanent scarring.
What does the Genuine Dermaroller treatment involve?
Firstly we advise that no make-up is worn on the day of treatment and that men are clean shaven. A numbing cream will be placed on the area to be treated and left for 30 minutes. After the skin has been numbed, the Genuine Dermaroller will be gently rolled over the area in different directions, producing thousands of micro-needle columns within the skin.
What happens after the Genuine Dermaroller treatment?
After micro-needling, the skin will appear red and flushed, somewhat similar in appearance to moderate sunburn. Some people will see tiny pinpoint bleeding and this is normal. You may also experience skin tightness. These will all diminish greatly after a few hours following treatment and within 24 hours will be fully healed.
After the procedure, the body will start to naturally regenerate and repair but this will take time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells regenerate and the dermis will enhance.
When will I see results from Micro-needling?
Visible results will be seen at 6-8 weeks and will continue over the following months. A course of 3 micro-needling sessions at 6-8 weeks intervals are recommended for optimum results.
Is the Genuine Dermaroller and Micro-needling safe?
Micro-needling does not involve any injections and therefore allergic reactions and side effects are unlikely. There is minimal downtime with this treatment due to rapid healing.
What is the Genuine Dermaroller and Micro-needling used for?
Clinical studies have shown that micro-needling is effective on;
- Acne scarring
- Photo damaged and ageing skin
