This is the one of the latest and most widely renowned techniques that helps address your skin issues. The dermaroller is a device that works by making minute perforations in your skin using high quality micro needles. This in turn works by stimulating the collagen and aiding healing thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines, age lines, hyper pigmentation, wrinkles, décolleté line and stretch marks.
What is Genuine Dermaroller therapy about?
The Genuine DermaRoller Therapy is a therapy that uses 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 thereby aiding and accelerating healing.
What sort of skin conditions can be addressed with Genuine Dermaroller Therapy?
Genuine Dermaroller therapy can be used by anyone who wants to address skin concerns such as Acne scars, aged or sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles and also stretch marks. For those who just want better looking skin, this procedure stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
What happens when I have my treatment?
First, our specialized doctor, will determine the severity of your condition. The treatment will be conducted in a controlled environment at Renew’s Skin and Health Clinic using sterile equipment.
Using the Genuine Dermaroller, the doctor will make thousands of microscopic needle columns in the dermis of the skin. The tiny needles mounted 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 procedure is pain free as we anaesthetise the skin with anaesthetic cream prior to commencing.
Are there any side effects?
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. 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 although your practitioner may be able to supply you with specialist mineral make-up that they feel would be suitable for use during this period. If you will be in daylight immediately after the procedure apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a SPF50.
Any other Frequently Asked Questions?
How soon will I see the results?
Visible signs of improvement will not be immediate as the production of collagen occurs for up to 6 weeks after the session. The process will however continue over the following months providing a gradual and long lasting enhancement.
How many sessions are required?
Our Doctor will analyse your condition and suggest the number of sessions needed. This usually depends on the severity of the problem you are looking to address. The treatment can be repeated if necessary, however you will most definitely notice a considerable improvement with one treatment.
