What are Dermarollers?
In micro needling therapy, Dermarollers are used for acne and acne scars. Dermaroller is designed to break down the scarred tissues and help to stimulate proliferation of the skin cells.
Dermaroller is mainly used for face, and furthermore, any part of the body can be treated. It is suited for all skin types. People can opt for dermarollers without any fear of health or skin risk.
How do Dermarollers work?
Dermarollers work by creating tiny, invisible pores on the skin that activates the skin’s natural healing process. New collagen and elastin is produced, generating brand new skin cells that will fill out any pitted scars or indentations. At the same time, the scar tissue is ‘tricked’ into dividing and is gradually broken down.
After a few treatments, the scar tissue starts to contract, and hyperpigmentation begins to fade. The dermaroller also thickens the skin and makes the scars less visible. With time and continued treatments, most scar tissue is removed and replaced with smooth, healthy skin.
When to use Dermarollers?
Dermarollers can be used for skin ageing and other conditions, as follows:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
- Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Hair loss
What cosmetic changes can I expect after Dermaroller treatment?
Following the dermaroller treatment, you may notice:
- Improved thickness of the skin
- Decrease in spots, wrinkles and other age-related skin issues
- Tightened pores
- Stimulated collagen production
- Increased blood circulation to reduce scars and hyper-pigmentation
- Reduced fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks
What are the benefits Dermarollers over other therapies?
- No incision, so no scars
- Time saving
- Safe for all skin types
Will I need multiple sessions?
The treatment usually requires three sessions followed by a period of 6 weeks without any sessions. The number of sessions will vary depending upon the skin condition. It may take at least 6 weeks to notice the visible changes of the treatment.
Are the results immediate?
Most people see results in 6 weeks, and the improvements in the skin are visible over the next few months. As the collagen production is continued, skin improvements persist for up to 12 months after the last treatment.
