Medical skin needling with dermarollers is a safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique to restore the healthy, youthful appearance of your skin and improve skin firmness. If you’re interested in a quick and non-surgical solution to some of the earlier signs of mild to moderate facial aging, the dermal roller procedure may be perfect for you.
How the Dermal Roller Works
The dermal roller technique is very similar to the microneedling procedure. Both use a series of extremely tiny needles to create a series of grooves in the outermost layer of your skin’s surface. These tiny little wounds are called “micro-channels” and they work by triggering your body’s natural healing response. This encourages your body to send rejuvenating compounds to the treatment area, kick-starting your natural production of collagen and elastin. This helps to create more supple skin that better retains moisture and hydration, for all-natural skin rejuvenation that truly lasts.
In most cases, the procedure only takes between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the specifics of your treatment area. We can help you stay comfortable with a topical numbing cream, and the majority of our patients are surprised at how tolerable this treatment actually is. Once you’re through, you’ll experience some mild redness and irritation in the treatment area, but this will fade within a day or two and will be the extent of any recovery period or downtime.
