Dermal Rolling

Dermal Rolling GibraltarAlso known as Collagen Induction Therapy and Skin Needling, Dermal Rolling is a non surgical facial treatment which results in younger looking, firmer, and smoother skin. Dermal rolling produces similar results to Laser treatment at a fraction of the cost and in a less invasive manner.

It is a safe and virtually pain free treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, lack of skin firmness and elasticity, enlarged pores, sundamage/hyperpigmentation, scarring, acne and chicken pox scars.

It does not require the removal of the epidermis. Consequently the healing time is short and there is no post treatment sensitivity to UV light. Visible improvement can be seen 6-8 weeks after the procedure and continue to improve for up to a year.

How does it work and what happens during treatment?

You will be assessed and then provided with creams to improve skin quality and enhance the effect of the treatment.  A course of 3 treatments is usually recommended at 6-8 week intervals, however you will notice an improvement after just one session. It is suitable for all skin types and there are few contra-indications.

Skin quality is improved through increased vascularisation and collagen development due to the skin’s own natural ability to repair itself following physical damage. Dermal rolling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro injuries in the skin which trigger collagen synthesis without scarring. The result is younger looking, firmer, smoother skin.

Dermal RollerYou will be given an anaesthetic cream to numb your skin prior to the treatment. A Titanium Skin Roller will be gently rolled across your skin to make minuscule subcutaneous injuries. These tiny wounds will close within an hour.

Afterwards your skin will look red and flushed similar to the way sunburn looks. You will experience mild sensitivity to touch and some skin tightness. This will diminish over the next few hours and your skin will be healed within 48 hours. 5 days later there is barely any evidence to show that the procedure has taken place.

You will be given after care advice pre and post treatment.

To enhance your treatment you can continue with a Home Roller once your skin has healed. The topical application of Vit C and Retinol Creams will enhance the effects.
