Dermal Roller SR™ and Skin Needling

Dermal Roller SR™ is a precision engineered hand held medical device that helps combat the appearence of scars, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, stretch marks, cellulite and even hair loss. Micro skin needling encourages Collagen and Elastin production whcih the skin and helps reduce the appearence of skin imperfections making the skin imperfections making the skin smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking.

Dermal Roller SR™ uses 192 micro-needles to part the pores on the top layer of the skin without damaging them. The pores close approximately an hour after using the Roller, during which time your skins ability to soak up the nutrients of skin creams and lotions will increase.  Dermal Roller SR™ 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 meloncytes in teh skin are not damaged, thereby minimising the possibility of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It can be used by both men and women.

How does it work?

The procedure is pain free as we anaesthetise prior to commencing. It works by producing thousands of microscopic needle columns in the dermis of the skin. The tiny needles in the roller cause an initial trauma and wound healing response within the dermis and this in turn encourages new collagen formation to the areas treated. The production of collagen occurs for up to 4-6 weeks after the treatment so visible signs of improvement will not be immediate, the process will however continue over the following months providing a gradual and long lasting enhancement. The treatment can be repeated if necessary, however you will most definitely notice a considerable improvement with one treatment.

The number of sessions needed will depend on the severity of the problem you are looking to address.

Are there any side affects?

Immediately after the procedure the skin closes up and all you will experience is redness resembling mild to moderate sunburn. This will normally subside the same day with only a little residual redness the following day. This treatment is an excellent alternative for those that do not want to do down the laser route. Therapy is a medical roller that is manufactured with many small high quality micro-surgical precision needles mounted around the rolling device. These tiny needles are rolled over the area to be treated and will pierce the skin to a depth of 1.5mm.
