Dermaroller also is used in Collagen Induction Therapy, this procedure stimulates the formation of growth factors, collagen and elastin. The Dermaroller is safe and very gentle, non-ablative procedure for skin improvement of Large Pores, Wrinkles, Acne Scars and/or Stretch Marks. Dermaroller uses a fine micro-point needle that is rolled over the skin stimulating the formation of collagen.
The Collagen-Induction Therapy begins by cleansing the patient skin and applying a numbing cream. The skin is then treated with the Dermaroller medical tool. The device is rolled over the skin until the skin turns pink. Finally the skin is cleansed with a saline solution.
After the procedure, the skin is pink comparable to a light sunburn that lasts about 1-2 days. No side effects have ever been reported and make-up can be worn the next day. Patients can purchase a home care Dermaroller to enhance the penetration and increase absorption of skin care products to the deeper skin layers where cell repair actually occurs. It improves the skin texture by thickening the sensitive skin, adding more firming lines and less wrinkles, smoothing texture, reducing large pores and brightening the overall skin’s surface.
The Dermaroller treatment outcomes are comparable to many lasers used for skin resurfacing, but without the associated pain. Unlike laser skin resurfacing, the Dermaroller only has a maximum downtime of 24 hours. This technique is a medical procedure that can only be performed under a medical physician’s supervision. It has been featured on the Rachel Ray show and The Doctors show.
