The Genuine Dermaroller is the only micro-needling device with surgical standards. It is a safe, effective, all natural skin regeneration and scar repair treatment. The treatment activates stem cells to produce growth factors that create new, plump, healthy skin, through a process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). CIT stimulates two vital processes to create NEW healthy skin tissue:
Collagenesis: produces new collagen and elastin
Angiogenesis: produces new capillary growth for better blood supply to the skin
No other ablative or non-ablative treatment can do this!!
What will the Genuine Dermaroller do for me?
- Tighten sagging skin
- Fade deep wrinkles and erase fine lines
- Even skin pigmentation
- Reduce scars (acne, burns and stretch marks)
- Create firmer, plumper, youthful skin with a healthy glow
What should I expect?
The area will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area. The treatment area will be thoroughly needled with surgical grade micro needles. A serum will be then be applied to further break up cellulite and firm the skin. Including the time it takes to numb the area, the treatment takes 60-90 minutes. It is ideal for all skin types and has very little downtime. Your skin will have a slightly sunburned appearance for 24-48 hours. Ideally, a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart will be sufficient to achieve optimal results. Visible improvements will appear 6-8 weeks after the first treatment and the process will continue to evolve over several months, providing gradual improvement.
Are there any side effects or contraindications?
Side effects are minimal. Redness, dryness, itching, and minor flaking can occur. You will be given products to use post-procedure to reduce these symptoms and facilitate healing. Mild scab formation can occur in rare circumstances. Infections are extremely rare. If you have a history of herpes simplex in the area to be treated, it can trigger a flare up.
