How does a Dermaroller™ work?
A high quality titanium Dermaroller™ is rolled over the skin to create thousands of miniscule contact points, leaving your body’s natural healing process to rejuvenate and repair the skin for a smoother, younger looking appearance and to improve the above indications.
What happens during the Dermaroller™ treatment?
A detailed consultation is carried out at the Bristol or Bath clinic and a topical or surface anaesthetic is applied to the area to be treated. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect the skin is “rolled” and this typically takes 30-40 minutes.
Does it hurt?
Although you may experience some mild discomfort throughout, this is kept to a minimum with the application of anaesthetic cream prior to treatment.
What happens after Dermaroller™ treatment
After the procedure, your skin will be red and flushed in appearance, similar to moderate sunburn. Dermaroller™ is much less invasive than popular lasers and skin peels , meaning healing time is much shorter. You can resume normal daily activities within just two days and for some it can be less than this. For 2 weeks post treatment it is advised that you use an oxygenating cream is applied twice a day followed by a moisturising sun protection cream. Once the skin has been treated, the repair (regeneration) process takes time – it can take 2 weeks for visible signs of improvement but the process will continue over several months providing a gradual and long lasting enhancement.
How many treatments of Dermaroller™ are needed?
Improvement can be seen from 6 - 12 weeks following treatment, with results continuing to improve for up to a year or more. A minimum course of 3 treatments is recommended at 4-6 week intervals to achieve optimum results.
What results can I expect Dermaroller™?
Results can be seen progressively, with many clients noticing a marked improvement in their skin after 2 -3 sessions. Results include:
