DermaRoller device has thousands of needles which is applied and moved in the skin. It creates thousands of punctures into the skin dermis. The body perceive these punctures as damage that helps in stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The human body possess natural tendency of responding to an injury by starting a healing process. But this process heals up to the level to keep the skin healthy. The dermaroller treatment persistently triggers the process of healing by encouraging the body to continue the healing process until the desired results are achieved. By creating miniature opening sin the skin, the penetration of the topical skin products increase dramatically. This not only helps in increasing their effectiveness but also promotes the healing mechanism of skin that stimulates the production of natural skin factors important for healthy skin.
Before initiating the dermaroller treatment a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area. When the areas become considerably numb, the dermaroller device is moved quickly over the skin. The roller direction is quickly changed during the dermaroller treatment procedure in order to cover the maximum area. Specific concerns like scarring or wrinkles can be focused during the treatment. Instantly after the treatment, the skin will be red, slightly swollen and inflamed along with some bleeding in the puncture marks but this condition is normal. After the dermaroller treatment, a soothing cream combined with SPF is applied on the skin to sooth and calm the skin.
