Dermaroller is a treatment that creates tiny punctures in the skin, to stimulate skin repair, and cell regeneration.
At this stage our Skin Technician, will want to examine your concerns and discuss how to get the best possible results for you.
At this stage, it's the perfect opportunity for you to communicate with our Skin Technician to discuss how to get the best possible results for you.
Treatment will follow your consultation, so please allow 60 minutes for your appointment time.
The procedure involves a handheld device that rotates with hundreds of sharp needles on the end. The device punctures 1000’s of micro needles into the skin, helping to stimulate the skin's collagen, and elastin production. The skin is numbed beforehand to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. This treatment is great for helping with skin concerns such as anti-ageing, pigmentation, acne scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles.
The collagen and elastin cells are traumatised, to help improve the elasticity, and tone of the skin, which is much improved over time. Acne scars are rapidly reduced, due to the rapid cell turnover, and the new skin cells holding new collagen, and elastin. This treatment is suitable for all skin types, and all skin concerns. The needle sizes vary from 1.5mm to 2.00mm, and results can be seen after one treatment, however, for maximum results, a course of 3 treatments is recommended, at a month apart.
Tinkable use a numbing cream that is applied for 20 minutes prior to the treatment. Witch hazel is then used with a gauze to remove the numbing cream, and then a sterile dermaroller device is used for 5-10 minutes until trauma point.
Finally, a calming mask is applied, followed by an Oil Free SPF from Glo Therapeutics.
