Dermaroller Treatment

Microneedling with the hand-held dermaroller is a safe and effective approach to improve the appearance of skin imperfections such as scarring, stretch marks and cellulite. Age spots and other areas of hyperpigmentation have also shown improvement with regular dermaroller treatment sessions.

With a range of sizes available enabling a larger working area than its counterpart, the Dermapen, a dermaroller can be used on vast areas of the body including the face, thighs and abdomen.

What Is A Dermaroller?

The dermaroller is a hand-held, non-motorised rolling device that is studded with numerous medical-grade micro-needles of varying lengths and thicknesses. It is used to perform microneedling by passing the roller across areas of the body and applying gentle pressure. This causes the needles to penetrate the skin, creating tiny micro-wounds. These micro-wounds stimulate the renewal and regeneration process of the skin resulting in an influx of growth factors and healing proteins to rebuild and repair. Collagen and elastin production is increased and the dermal layers of the skin undergo deep tissue remodelling. The result is firmer, tighter skin with a reduction in scar tissue and a natural increase in elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen production.

When Can I Expect To See The Results?

Immediately after the dermaroller treatment, the skin will already feel fresher, tighter and rejuvenated. However, the full healing of the micro-wounds occurs over the course of the next 2-4 months. During this time, the real benefits of dermaroller treatment are seen as sufficient levels of collagen is produced and the deep tissue layers are successfully remodelled.

What Problems Area Can Dermarolling Treat?

The varying degrees of needle depth and sizes of roller mean the dermaroller is more suited to wider areas of the body and face. For smaller, more delicate areas such as the lips or under eye area, microneedling should be performed with the gentler, more precise Dermapen.

Popular target areas for the dermaroller include:
• Treatment of wrinkles and tightening of sagging, ageing skin
• Reduction of acne and acne scars
• Remodelling and reduction of scar tissue including burn scars
• Skin tightening in the abdomen, arms and legs
• Reduced appearance of stretch marks and pronounced cellulite
• Reduction in blemishes and pigmentation disorders

Does Dermarolling Hurt?

To reduce levels of discomfort when the roller is applied and micro-wounds created, an anaesthetic cream can be applied shortly before the treatment. Some levels of redness and slight swelling is to be expected but this usually subsides after one or two days post-treatment.

Combination Treatments with Dermarolling

The most popular combination treatment with dermarolling is mesotherapy, the targeted application of various hyaluronic acid-based serums. These serums can contain a complex mix of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and other hydrating agents. The micro-wounds effectively act as small micro-channels allowing for a deeper penetration of the products and thus increasing their efficacy.
