Derma Roller -
Micro Skin Needling
The ageing process can not be reversed but you can help your skin from ageing further with Derma Roller. After Derma Roller treatments your skin will be able to penetrate your anti aging products to make them work better allowing the skin not to age as quickley as it might, so will plump out those fine lines. Derma Roller is a precision engineered hand held medical device that helps combat the appearance of scars, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, stretch marks, celluliteand even hair loss. Micro skin needling encourages Collagen and Elastin production within the skin and helps to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections making the skin smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking.
Dermal Roller has similar results to laser treatment, chemical peels and dermabrasion, but is considerably less invasive. It can be used on all skin types and even on sensitive areas such as around the eyes, the neck and hands. The epidermis and melanocytes in the skin are not damaged, thereby minimising the possibility of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It can be used by both men and women.
When using the Dermal Roller, pinpoint punctures are made, which push the pores open temporarily. The body responds by initiating the healing process by releasing growth factors and triggering the production of Collagen and Elastin in the skin. By persistently triggering the healing process by using Dermal Roller, the body continues to heal itself until the desired cosmetic level of skin repair is achieved.
MICRONEEDLE THERPY - A topical anaesthetic is applied to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Micro needle therapy procedure. After use of the Dermal Roller your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new Collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
It is normally recommended that a series of three Dermal Roller procedures are needed with approximately 6 weeks between each treatment. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary to have up to five procedures. Immediately after the treatment you will look as you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day. If you experience slight skin swelling this will usually subside in a day or two. Another side effect is a potential Retinoid reaction (redness, flaking, burning or stinging) due to the increase in Vitamin A penetration. This is not harmful, just unpleasant and will subside.
A professional moisturising cream / lotion will be applied after the procedure to help soothe and calm the skin, continue to use until the redness has cleared. We will then also apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a SPF 30+. Continue to apply on a daily basis for at least two weeks even during the winter or on cloudy days. Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and dry gently, always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area. It is recommended that make up is not applied for 12 hours after the procedure. Following the treatment as the skin starts to regenerate and repair, it may well feel drier than normal.
