Here at Skinstation we stock a selection of items known as “Dermarollers”. These devices are a unique, recent innovation in the skin care industry that can be used to stimulate rejuvenation of the skin.
These hand-held tools are a form of “skin-needling” therapy. Skin needling, in simple terms, involves gently breaking the skin of a patient with fine needles in order to encourage the skin in re-growth.
This treatment is one of the most acclaimed non-surgical and non-ablative treatments, to have been offered by Skinstation in recent years. The treatment can be used to combat a number of skin ailments, including aging (made apparent by wrinkling or sagging of the skin) and scarring (as a result of acne, surgery or stretch marks. Application of the treatment is not limited to the facial area of a patient. It is entirely possible for Dermaroller therapy to be applied to almost all areas of the body. The treatment can even be applied, safely, from the comfort of your own home.
Another bi-product of Dermaroller treatment is thickening and strengthening of the skin. This can do much for the resilience of your skin.
WHAT ARE THE FACTS?
Generally speaking, Dermarollers are constructed of a handle, and a cylindrical roller. The roller is usually covered in around 200 very fine needles. These needles gently puncture the skin and stimulate elastin and collagen production. The Dermaroller will also help skin products to penetrate the surface of the skin more speedily. The roller acts by creating “micro-channels”, which when used in conjunction with topical skin care serums such as Obagi Pro-C serum will allow the active ingredients to absorb much deeper into the skin. Deeper skin product penetration will significantly improve your results.
Why pay big money for high-end cosmetics, when most of the product will never get the opportunity to penetrate your skin?
– Dermarollers can give much of the benefit of the actions of lasers and acid peels, with less risk of damage, and without the need for professional application.
– Dermarollers are safe. Don’t let the word “needle” frighten you. These needle work at a safe level, and are designed not to penetrate to deeply. Unlike many cosmetic treatments, Dermarollers will leave you with no pain, no need for downtime and no risk of complications.
