What is Dermaroller?
During this treatment a device covered in multiple micro-needles is rolled over the skin to create tiny punctures. This causes it to produce collagen; the elastic fibre that gives skin the firmness and glow associated with youth.
Massively boost collagen up to 400%
The skin naturally contains collagen. However, we experience wrinkles and fine lines due to it degenerating as we age. This is why dermaroller can help; as skin produces large quantities of collagen after a treatment and essentially heals itself, it helps skin to return to a smoother, firmer state. Stretch marks may also benefit from this treatment, as will acne scarring.
Dermaroller treatments in Richmond
A typical dermaroller treatment takes around ten minutes from the time the anaesthetic begins to work, and the procedure is undertaken by a registered nurse or doctor. For best results it is advised that patients undergo 4-6 treatments with 8-12 week intervals between them. However, the effects of dermaroller are not temporary, and you can expect to continue receiving the benefit of it for years to come.
