Dermaroller treatment is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the texture of skin naturally. The procedure stimulates the collagen building cells within the skin to produce younger looking radiant skin. The cosmetologist may recommend Dermaroller treatment for facial and decolletage lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, scars (including acne) and rejuvenation of hands. The dermaroller is a small motorized instrument with a number of microneedles. The number and size of needles can vary with the type of instrument e. As the instrument is rolled onto the skin, the microneedles create punctures all over the surface. These micro wounds activate the healing mechanism within the skin cells. Regeneration and repair of the skin are brought about by increased production of collagen within the skin. The collagen fills up lines and wrinkles and also reduces the appearance of scars and acne marks. Dermaroller boosts blood supply to the epidermal cells inducing growth. The microspores created by the needles enhance the absorption of minerals and oils into the skin. The procedure may be carried under a local anesthesia to eliminate any discomfort that may be experienced by the patient. The entire treatment can take up to two hours depending on the nature of treatment sought. Redness and swelling will subside within a few hours and the patient may return to routine life on the same day. Unlike other similar procedures, derma roller treatment produces visible changes in the skin texture within a week. The treatment has long-lasting effect.
