SkinFitBodyLab is proud to offer this amazing technology from Europe.  The Genuine Dermaroller TM (micro-needling) is a German engineered product for safe, effective, all natural skin regeneration and scar repair treatment. Dermaroller TM activates stem cells to produce growth factors that create new, plump, healthy skin with a natural glow through a process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).  Medical Dermaroller increases NEW collagen and elastin fibers by up to 1000%  Dermaroller TM does what no other ablative or non-ablative treatment can do…it creates NEW healthy skin tissue through two processes:

  • Collagenesis: produces new collagen and elastin
  • Angiogenesis: produces new capillary growth for better blood supply to the skin

At SkinFitBodyLab we often like to combine micro-needling in our Skin Fitness program with Radio Frequency and Endermolift treatments.  This approach works from two angles…1) it repairs your existing collagen and elastin network 2) it creates new, healthy skin with a rejuvenated blood supply.  Get ready for your most gorgeous skin ever!!

What will the Genuine Dermaroller do for me?

  • tighten sagging skin
  • fade deep wrinkles
  • erase fine lines
  • even out skin pigmentation
  • diminish pores
  • reduce scars (acne, burn scars, stretchmarks)
  • smooth texture
  • balances skin oils to reduce acne outbreaks

What should I expect?

The Medical Dermaroller is made up of fine surgical grade steel needles precisely engineered to roll over the treatment area.  It is minimally invasive with no post-op pain, very little social downtime and none to minimal side effects.  It can be performed on any skin type, at any time of year, and will not increase sun sensitivity.  Prior to starting the treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned and a topical Lidocaine numbing cream will be applied.  This makes the treatment more comfortable, although you will still experience some sensations.  The treatment area will be thoroughly needled and products will be applied to enhance your results.  The needles enter your skin and are cleanly pulled out, causing micro trauma to the skin.  This triggers your body’s natural repair process and leads to rejuvenated tissue.  Post treatment, a collagen mask will be applied to increase hydration and assist with healing.  All of the tiny “holes” will be completely closed within 20 minutes after needling, so there is no risk of infection.

Although one treatment can produce visible results, we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart for best results.  Maintenance is one session per year.  Most people see improvement in their skin right away, but your skin will continue to improve over several months.

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.  Your skin will have a slightly sunburned appearance for 24-48 hours post treatment.  Make-up can be applied 12 hours after the procedure.

  • Roaccutane use within the last 3 months
  • Open wounds, cuts, or abrasions in the area to be treated
  • Radiation treatment to the skin within the last year
