Dermaroller or skin needling is referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Micro-Needling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring such as that caused by acne or chicken pox. It has also been successfully applied for hair restoration in cases of hair loss.
How it works?
By rolling the micro-needling device across the affected area, its micro-fine needles reach the inner surface of your skin (the dermis). This repairs the damaged skin by stimulating the body’s natural production of elastin and collagen..
It can improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, cellulite and even the problem of deep scarring to help restore a youthful look.
Is micro-needling suitable for me?
Micro-needling therapy is a suitable skin renewal technique that is able to treat all skin types, but can not be used if acne is present on the skin. You can expect your treatment to be carried out by fully qualified practitioners in a regulated clinical environment.
What are the Benefits
As the skin heals, it produces excess collagen and the automatically looks plumped up in that area. This helps in erasing fine lines and filling up scars.
The action from the needle also improves the blood circulation in the skin. It gives the skin radient glow. The treatment also opens up the pores of the skin to make it more receptive to any product that you apply on it.
Duration and After Treatment
Each session will last a period of around 45 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.
The face or body will apear very red and may feel like sunburn after your treatment. It will settle down after a few hours, but could atke upto 24 hours. You may experience some slight bruising after the initial course. You can expect to return to normal daily activities in a couple of days.
Derma Roller Results
Your skin will naturally repair itself after treatment by producing new collagen and healthy new cells. It may take up to 6 weeks before you see signs of improvement, but the natural healing process will continue over the following months and should produce long-lasting results.
