Also known as micro needling or skin needling, a Derma Roller® is a unique revolutionary device which has an amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it. It is safe, a natural skin rejuvenation process, and above all very effective. It is perfect as an alternative to other beauty treatments for acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles, as Derma Rollers do not damage the skin.
By encouraging collagen production in the skin, Derma Rollers® help treat wrinkles, acne scars, pitted scars, stretch marks, hair loss and thinning of hair by preventing or reversing their formation.
One might experience mild sunburn for a day. It takes between 4-6 sittings depending upon the area for microneedling.
The Derma Roller® is a single roller device which consists of a rotating wheel studded with tiny 1.5 mm long needles.
The needles penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn cause the skin to mount an injury response. This procedure utilises the collagen and elastin to thicken the skin, repair scars and smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles. This stimulus also causes growth of new capillaries which improves blood supply to the skin. Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast. Skin micro-needling may be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colours.
A non-painful treatment, the skin is numbed before treatment with local anaesthetic cream. Post treatment you may feel as if you have slight sunburn for the next 12-24 hours.
Derma Roller is frequently used for treating hair loss in both men and women. The simple hand held roller is rolled along the scalp to stimulate increased blood flow to the surface of the head. Thinning hair can be thickened, and the loss of hair from the scalp is reduced.
