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 a painless procedure due to the local anesthetic being applied prior to the treatment.
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.
It can take up to 6 weeks for the results of dermaroller to be noticeable however clinical trials have shown that the skin will continue to regenerate even at 6 months after your first treatment. To gain the best results, Skin Made Perfect recommends a course of treatments six weeks apart to produce long-term radiance and improvement of skin quality and texture.
