Get dermaroller treatment at an award winning, professional, modern clinic on the Kings Road in London. Dermaroller/eDS is used to improve the appearance of facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and aging skin, acne scars and stretch marks. Advanced micro-needling stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. The regeneration process that has been initiated creates smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
How Dermaroller Works
Dermaroller is also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT). The technique involves creating microscopic channels through the skin which in turn activate the body’s natural healing cycle. This activation causes formation of collagen in the skin.
Skin contains 75% collagen. The collagen provides support for skin and is responsible for the smooth, plump, healthy looking skin that exists at a young age. As the skin ages the amount of collagen decreases and so the support for our skin diminishes resulting in thin, unsupported, wrinkled skin.
Dermaroller stimulates collagen production which in turn produces healthier younger looking skin. This type of procedure is also non-ablative meaning that the deeper parts of the skin are treated without damaging the top layer of the skin which happens with laser procedures.
In the case of acne cars, stretch marks or other scars the initiation of the body’s healing cycle helps the scar tissue to be broken down and the formation of new collagen to improve the skin.
The Difference Between Dermaroller & eDS
Dermaroller is a rolling device. This means the needles do not penetrate and exit the skin vertically and as a result a wedge shape is made in the skin surface. The needles on an Electric Dermastamp (eDS) move vertically and as a result ideal sized micro-channels are created. This allows for Collagen Induction without unnecessarily damaging the epidermis (the uppermost layer of the skin).
eDS is ideal for the face where precision of the micro-needling treatment is of the utmost importance to provide optimum results with minimal trauma. eDS also allows for the needle length to be altered easily for different parts of the face. This is important as the needles need to penetrate different depths on the different areas of the face for optimum results.
Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated and it is left on the skin for 30 min to work. Once the area is numb the eDS tip is gently passed over the skin while the microfine needles penetrate very smoothly and quickly to the correct depth of skin. A skin rejuvenation treatment solution is applied to the face to allow the eDS tip to glide smoothly over the skin as well as to add extra benefits to the skin.
The solutions used are Hyaluronic Acid solution to provide intensive hydration or alternatively CIT Mesotherapy solution which contains hyaluronic acid but also contains Vitamin A for skin regeneration, Vitamin C and E for antioxidant protection, Niacinamide for skin brightening, peptides and amino acids for skin cell stimulation and additional skin enhancing ingredients.
Once the entire area is treated, a calming lotion is applied to the skin to soothe the skin and a mask is then applied to intensively hydrate and soothe the skin. The mask contains Vitamin E, retinol palmatate, hyaluronic acid, ceramide amytriptil. A sun protection is then applied and given for you to continue using for 2 weeks after treatment.
During the 6 weeks following treatment, the skins natural regeneration takes place and new collagen and skin cells are formed and the skins blood supply is enhanced bringing more nutrients, hydration and oxygen to the skin.
The process allows a natural and long lasting enhancement and regeneration. 3 procedures are normally recommended with approximately 6 weeks between them.
