The Dermaroller medical device is a novel treatment that has been proven effective for the following problems: The Dermaroller is a single-use medical device available only from trained practitioners.

This treatment employs advanced medical micro-needling, a procedure which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, healthier, clear younger-looking skin.

After an initial consultation with your practitioner, if it is agreed that you will benefit from this treatment, local anesthetic is applied to the affected area so as to numb it and is allowed to work over the course of 30 minutes. The actual dermaroller procedure takes 20-30 minutes and is virtually painless. Following the treatment, a soothing cream is applied and should be continued to be applied at home for the next couple of days. For the fist 24 hours post-procedure, the affected area will looks red and may be slightly swollen (very similar to the appearance of mild sunburn). This is the normal expected result and is not painful.

Although significant results are often seen following the first treatment, your practitioner with generally recommend between 3 and 5 treatments for optimum and long-lasting effects. This treatment is contra-indicated in the presence of active acne and if there is a tendency to form hypertrophic or keloid scars.
