What is Dermaroller Skin Needling?
Dermaroller Skin Needling is a unique aesthetic treatment that harnesses the body’s own healing response to induce a natural skin rejuvenation from deep within the dermis. As well as producing smoother, clearer skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and tightening up sagging skin, our Dermaroller Skin Needling treatments can also tackle acne scarring and even cellulite.
Tiny micro-needles gently puncture the surface of the skin, causing the body to kickstart the healing process. In the dermis, this means stimulating the production of collagen and elastin which provide the support and structure of the skin. At Timeless Skincare we offer the Dermaroller device and Secret RF Dermaroller Skin Needling.
The surface of the dermaroller is covered with many micro-needles and when it is gently rolled over the surface of the skin, it causes hundreds of microscopic punctures, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. At Timeless Skincare, we can combine this Dermaroller Skin Needling procedure with powerful anti-ageing skincare products for further rejuvenation.
What skin concerns can Dermaroller Skin Needling treat?
Collagen and elastin production, which slows down as you age, is stimulated, tightening facial tissues and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Circulation and lymphatic drainage are improved and the area is flooded with nutrients and fibroblasts.
Dermaroller Skin Needling can therefore target a whole range of skin concerns, whether they are caused by the ageing process or trauma to the skin. At Timeless Skincare we can either carry out an all-over skin rejuvenation or can tackle specific problem areas, such as scarring or areas of skin discolouration.
Skin concerns that Dermaroller Skin Needling can treat include:
- Sagging facial tissues
- Fine to moderate lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores and poor skin tone
Can Dermaroller Skin Needling be used on the body as well as the face?
Dermaroller Skin Needling with the Dermaroller device is safe enough to be used on the neck, décolletage and the hands to reduce the signs of ageing. Dermaroller Skin Needling can also be used to improve the appearance of stretch marks.
The Secret RF has also been used with great success to treat cellulite on any area of the body. It treats the ‘orange peel’ appearance of the skin by stimulating the production of collagen to induce a tightening effect.
Are there any risks with Dermaroller Skin Needling?
There may be a little discomfort felt during a Dermaroller Skin Needling procedure, but we can apply local anaesthetic cream to the surface of the skin to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Patients can expect minimal downtime after a Dermaroller Skin Needling procedure, although their skin may feel slightly red and sensitive immediately afterwards.
What results can I expect from Dermaroller Skin Needling?
Patients often feel that their skin looks plumper, smoother and more revitalised immediately after their procedure, but results will continue to improve as the body embarks on its natural healing process. Individual results do depend on the condition of the skin and your body’s personal healing response. Patients at Timeless Skincare love the results of Dermaroller Skin Needling as it achieves a beautifully natural aesthetic outcome, with the skin repairing and rejuvenating itself.
