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.
Your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20-30 minutes for the microneedle therapy procedure.
After use of the Dermal Roller you 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.
You will be normally recommended a series of three Dermal Roller SRTM procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of skin 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.
Possible slight skin swelling will also usually subside in a day or two. Another side effect is a potential Retinoid.
Dermal Roller SRTM 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 Dermal Roller SRTM, 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 SRTM, the body continues to heal itself until the desired cosmetic level of skin repair is achieved.
