DERMAROLLER THERAPY | SKIN REJUVENATION Cheshire
Whilst it may look like an instrument of mediaeval torture the Dermaroller is in fact very much a modern development of an age old concept. We have known for a very long time that minor degrees of damage to the skin stimulate a repair process that often goes on to make the underlying skin better too.
Thus chemical peels are designed to produce a slight burn of the skin to stimulate repair and rejuvenation. The only problem with most peels is their lack of consistency of result. This is due in part to a difficulty in controlling the exact depth of penetration of the peel into the skin. The dermaroller on the other hand uses hundreds of microfine sterilised needles of exactly the right length to penetrate into the skin and again stimulate the repair.
You do look a little red for a few days, a little like sun burn, but this quickly settles and within 3-5 days you looking completely normal. Several treatments are required and we normally leave roughly 8 to 10 weeks between treatments.
This was originally introduced as a cheaper alternative to Fraxel laser resurfacing. It does certainly provide a reasonable compromise giving slightly more than half the benefit for half the cost.
More recently evidence has suggested that this can be fruitfully combined with Fraxel to produce even better results. At Eternal Youth Clinic we have performed a great many of these combined treatments and we (and our patients) are very impressed with the results that are possible.
Eternal Youth is proud to offer Dermaroller treatments to the people of Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Hale, Stockport, Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire, the North West and the whole of the UK.
