At Skin Made Perfect we use Medik8 dermaroller therapy. This is a completely safe skin rejuvenating treatment using a new skin renewal technique. It uses advanced micro skin-needling to stimulate the deeper layer of the skin to produce collagen which helps to restore firmness and improve the quality and texture of the skin.
It significantly improves the appearance of
- Lines and wrinkles in the face and decolletage
- Large pores
- Scars caused by acne, chicken pox, burn or accident/injury
- Stretch marks
At Skin Made Perfect we generally recommend a course of 3 treatments at 6 week intervals.
At Skin Made Perfect we understand that some individuals would prefer to have treatments done in the comfort and privacy of their own home and if possible we will try to accommodate this. Please be aware that an additional £25 will be charged for home visits.
The dermaroller is made up of multiple ultra-fine micro needles in columns on a roller device, which cause tiny punctures to the skin prompting the production of elastin, collagen and new skin cells. By doing this, the skin can restore its firmness and overall skin quality and texture.
The procedure itself takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. However prior to carrying the treatment a local anesthetic is applied to numb the skin for 20 minutes.
It is quite common to be red and slight puffy following the treatment. Your skin will also feel sensitive to touch as well a feeling tight and may have a scratched skin appearance. At Skin Made Perfect we generally advise that on the evening of the procedure not to plan any important social events due to the post treatment effects. Generally full recovery takes up to 48 hours.
