Dermaroller – what can I expect?
The Genuine Dermaroller is a unique non-surgical treatment that works with your skin, stimulating it to produce more collagen, the biological “building block” that helps to keep skin supple and youthful.
It works by rolling very fine precision needles across the surface of the skin. These needles penetrate the skin to a depth of roughly 1.5mm, which kickstarts the body’s natural defences and encourages it to repair the skin by producing more collagen.
The results are seen gradually, with improvements becoming more noticeable over the 6 weeks following treatment. It is recommended that you have 3 individual treatments to get the most benefit.
What can the Dermaroller be used to treat?
The Dermaroller can be used to improve:
- Sun damaged skin – both on the face and décolletage
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Ageing skin – facial lines and wrinkles
Does Dermaroller treatment hurt?
We must admit that a needle-mounted roller is never going to be as relaxing as a facial! The roller needs to get right into the skin to work, so you will feel a bit of discomfort.
However, the treatment is by no means unbearable, and your face will be numbed with anaesthetic cream beforehand to make you as comfortable as possible.
Many of the ladies and gents who work at Aurora Skin Clinics have actually had the treatment themselves, so it can’t be too bad!
And besides, those 20 or so minutes of discomfort will be nothing but a distant memory when you see how great your skin looks for months afterwards.
