The Derma roller™ treatment uses skin needling to stimuate tissue regeneration. If you suffer from Scarring, Wrinkles, Hair Loss, Open Pores, Pigmentation, Stretch Marks... the solution is Dermaroller™.
What is the Dermaroller™?
The Dermaroller™ is a cylindrical shaped drum stud with very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis). This procedure is called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
What is the difference to other skin rejuvenation techniques?
In contrast to all ablative techniques like Lasers and Fractionate Laser treatments, the Dermaroller™ stimulates new tissue formation – it acts constructively and the skin remains intact. The Dermaroller™ significantly improves atrophic scars and improves skin texture in general.
What effects does the Dermaroller™ have on the skin?
It improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation. Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars, can be dramatically improved. New collagen fibres elevate the depressed scar tissue. An improved blood supply into the previous fibrotic scar tissue harmonises its pigmentation with the periphery skin.
How is the procedure performed & does it hurt?
The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with an appropriate numbing cream. Skin is thoroughly needled in such a way, that each skin part is needled about 15 to 20 times. An even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical performance.
How often can the Dermaroller™ procedure be repeated?
As often as required, for Collagen Induction Therapy we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 6 to 8 weeks between treatments. Improvement with acne scars (permanently by 70% and more) an average of 3 to 5 procedures is required. Unlike ablative procedures for facial skin only, the Dermaroller™ can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, decolletage, arms, legs, etc).
What are the side effects of a Dermaroller™ procedure?
There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.
Risks of post-op infections?
Since the tiny pricking channels close within minutes, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are very unlikely. To ensure the right healing environment, for 48 hrs DO NOT use Glycolic Acid, Retinol, acidic skincare or “ACTIVE” ingredients.
What is the down time after a Dermaroller™ treatment?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals of copper or manganese after the procedure, and to protect the skin with SUN SCREEN SPF30+. We also recommend the use of mineral make-up to help with the healing.
Does the Dermaroller™ have a similar effect as Fractional Laser Therapy?
YES! But the mechanism of action of a Fractional Laser is totally different. The laser beam sets a burn wound that results in necrosis. After an inflammatory process the necrosis transforms into fibrotic tissue in forms of micro scars. Nerve cells are “melted” by the hot laser beam, therefore the treatment is relatively painful. As the doctor cannot see the previous set scars under the epidermis in a follow-up treatment, it is extreme difficult for them to set an even scar pattern. This is the reason why more treatments are required as initially anticipated. But overall, as reported in clinical trials, both therapies have about the same results for facial treatments.
Is the Dermaroller™ TGA listed in Australia? Definitely
YES! To ensure its quality of skin needling, the device was registered with the TGA. The Dermaroller™ is the first medical device of its type included on the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) register.
