Dermaroller / Skin Needling

Dermaroller

To improve the appearance of a wide range of skin complaints, including fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, scarring and sun-damaged and aging skin, we use the EDS Electronic Dermaroller. The device uses a process called medical skin-needling, a procedure that encourages cell regeneration and repair, creating smooth, bright, youthful skin.

Skin-Needling

Medical skin-needling is a long-established procedure used to treat a wide range of skin issues, such as acne scarring, changes in skin tone and texture, sun-damaged or aging skin and lines and wrinkles on the face and d├ęcolletage. During treatment, the practitioner will apply the Dermaroller to the treatment area, where thousands of micro-medical needle-columns will be produced in the skin. Each needle-column is microscopic, around 0.1mm in width, penetrating into the dermis of the skin. The needle-columns will then stimulate the process of repair and regeneration, encouraging new cell growth, smoothing out lines, wrinkles and scars and improving the appearance of skin tone and texture. Depending on the patient’s individual skin complaint, the practitioner can adjust the speed, intensity and depth of the treatment.

When treating areas on the body, we use the Genuine Dermaroller. The process works in much the same way, whereby micro-medical needle-columns are made in the surface of the skin in order to stimulate cell repair.

During Treatment

Our Dermaroller treatments have a good comfort level and usually, our practitioners will apply a light topical anaesthetic to the treatment area in order to minimise any discomfort. We also have a number of topical solutions that we can apply during treatment in order to promote healing and enhance the procedure. Treatment is typically painless and although you might experience some discomfort and redness, this is usually minimal and is easily treated with over-the-counter pain medication.

When Will I See a Difference?

Although the process of cell regeneration starts to occur soon after the treatment, results won’t really be visible for around six weeks. During this time, collagen production is increased and new collagen is formed, skin cell regeneration occurs and blood supply to the surface of the skin is enhanced, bringing about a natural and long-lasting improvement in the look and feel of skin. Generally, we recommend a series of three treatments, with at least six weeks between them. We may recommend more treatments if necessary, depending on your particular skin complaint.
