Dermaroller is a skin needling treatment that can help provide smoother, younger-looking skin. Maisam Fazel uses this proven therapy to reduce lines, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven pigmentation and acne scars on the skin. The Dermaroller contains microneedles that are applied to the areas of damaged skin. These microneedles provide stimulation to the skin, resulting in increased collagen production and improved circulation. This can help the skin to repair and regenerate from below the surface.
Dermaroller is a safe and efficient aesthetic treatment. It is non-surgical, all natural and introduces no harsh chemicals to the skin. The Dermaroller can be effectively used on all skin types and does not cause discoloration. There is little or no downtime required and the treated skin does not form lesions.
After a topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area, Dermaroller is moved across the site. The microneedles penetrate the skin and create an extremely tiny wound under the surface. These micro-wounds stimulate the body to develop more elastin and collagen to initiate repair, which cause a regeneration of skin cells. Usually, three to five treatments spaced six weeks apart are required to achieve the desired result.
Anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen should not be taken immediately following the procedure as they can disrupt the repair process. Sunscreen and makeup may be worn the day after a Dermaroller treatment, but any exfoliants or glycolic acid-based cleansers should be avoided. By the second day, the skin typically becomes dry and flaky as production of skin cells is increased. Approximately one week after the treatment, the skin appears visibly smoother and healthier.
