A Derma Roller is a roller of needles which work by producing thousands of microscopic needle holes in the skin. The tiny needles on the Derma Roller are designed to pierce holes in the skin to stimulate repair.
The skin produces new collagen and elastin, generating new cells as part of the healing process. A Derma Roller is essentially a roller of needles and is often used as an alternative to Botox. This treatment can be used on the face and body.
Initially the skin may appear redder and will become drier around the treated area. It can take up to six weeks before full visible signs of regeneration and skin repair are seen. This process will continue and as the skin repairs and regenerates your skin becomes smoother, softer, brighter, shinier, healthier and younger looking.
Areas that can be treated include; the face (Derma roller facial) , and areas of the body that clients may have stretch marks and cellulite, including but not limited to the stomach, hips, thighs and legs.
This treatment is also great for improving the appearance of scarring and acne scarring, burns, wrinkles, fine lines, open pores, line reduction, softening wrinkles, reducing spots and overall refreshes the skin.
This treatment can also be performed using PRP (platelet rich plasma). Read more about that treatment here.
