A dermaroller is a device that contains a cylindrical roller with over 190 small thin needles approximately 1.5mm in length. When rolled over the skin these penetrate the top layer which triggers an exfoliation process of the skin cells and also stimulates the production of collagen.
This is extremely useful for conditions such as scars, stretch marks, cellutlite and general skin rejuvenation. It is a natural method with no medications and has very little downtime.
Here at Dermadoc we ensure all our patients undergo a smooth treatment. We use a topical anaesthetic cream before starting the procedure to make it as pain-free as possible.
The procedure also doesn’t damage the skin itself or leave any permanent marks.
Side effects are rare however most patients experience some redness and swelling which tends to subside over 24hrs allowing you to get back to work and daily activities.
Some precautions after treatment such as wearing SPF50 sunblock are usually recommended by your doctor.
Dermarollers are designed to treat a wide range of skin conditions. These are outlined below however we always advise to get an expert opinion from one of our doctors before going ahead with any treatment.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Results tend to show between 1-3 months. As a general guide 2-4 sessions of dermaroller are required to achieve good results and these are usually spaced 4 weeks apart.
We ask our patients to allow 45 minutes for their dermaroller treatment as applying the anaesthetic takes most of the time. The dermaroller process takes only 15 minutes.
