Why should I have choose Dermaroller/ Electronic DermaStamp?
Acne often leaves behind unsightly scars. By stimulating vital collagen, DermaRoller helps to regenerate the damaged skin to smooth scars and even out skin tone.
As we age, our skin looses elasticity as collagen levels decline, leaving skin looking tired & lined. Skin-needling is proven to reduce lines & wrinkles, by stimulating collagen production. Almost all of our clients report that their skin looks fuller & texture is improved.
DermaRoller can also treat stretchmarks – new collagen production visibly reduces the appearance of body stretchmarks by smoothing torn fibres in the skins deeper layers.
How many treatments will I need?
For general anti-ageing, up to 3 sessions are needed consecutively, followed by maintenance of approximately 1 – 2 treatments per year. This is due to the natural process of the breakdown of collagen, by which the treatment will help the skin to continually produce new collagen.
For acne scarring, depending on the level of scarring, between 3 – 6 treatments are needed.
For stretchmarks, again depending on the severity of your marks, between 3 – 6 treatments are needed.
Why Micro Needling?
small handheld roller or EDS head is gently rolled over the area of skin you want treated, whether it’s scarred, aged or affected by stretchmarks, to regenerate it. The treated skin responds by producing more natural collagen, which your skin needs to stay firm and regenerate scar tissue. New skin cells are also generated, which enhances the overall structure of your skin. It can take up to about six weeks until you start to see results, so this is a treatment to be patient with
But it’s worth it, as, not only do you get the benefits of new collagen (plump, youthful skin), these Dermaroller and Electronic DermaStamp treatments also make your skincare products more effective. How? The micro fine holes in your skin made during the course of your treatment allow the active ingredients in your skincare regime to penetrate your skin with ease, increasing their effectiveness. At DestinationSkin, we love combining skin-needling with DermaQuest Essential B5 Hydrating Serum.
The ‘bigger is better’ argument doesn’t stand with skin-needling. The devices we use, with their 1.5mm needles, achieve the same results that other rollers produce with longer, thicker needles. Don’t compromise on quality, safety or comfort. The needles we use are micro-fine to gently penetrate the uppermost layer of the skin.
We have recently started using a new electronic version of the dermaroller device. Its six needles are dropped into the skin at a rate of 80–150 times per second at a needle depth of 0.3mm to 1.5mm. This design provides a more comfortable treatment.
Will Dermaroller/ Electronic DermaStamp work for my skin type?
Anyone concerned with acne scarring or ageing is suitable, providing you aren’t pregnant, on photosensitive medication or have uncontrolled diabetes. If you have acute acne, we wouldn’t advise this treatment and would instead recommend an alternative to reduce your breakouts first, progressing you on to dermaroller or dermastamp to treat the remaining scarring/discolourations when your skin is ready.
Q: How will I feel after treatments?
A: Your skin will look flushed after this treatment and may feel tighter than normal. This will start to subside after one to two hours, with slight redness over the following couple of days. It’s important that you wear a broad-spectrum SPF 50+ product. We recommend SkinCeuticals Mineral Radiance Defence SPF 50. This will protect your skin during post-treatment. To speed up recovery time, we also recommend using the SkinCeuticals Redness Neutraliser in conjunction with a moisture-quenching hydrating serum.
Q: Is dermaroller treatment safe?
A: We only use the genuine, German-engineered dermaroller medical devices. They each carry the CE mark.
Q: Does dermaroller treatment hurt?
A: Our dermaroller treatment doesn’t hurt – we use numbing cream with all our skin-needling treatments to make the procedure more comfortable. The new eDermastamp is particularly gentle.
