Many people suffer with acne; so much so that it is actually one the most common skin conditions worldwide. Acne can unfortunately often result in many sufferers complaining of scarring as a result of their condition, which can be distressing and strip a person’s self confidence. There have been various cosmetic treatments available over the years to help improve the look of acne scaring with varying levels of effectiveness. At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we’re proud to offer our patients one of the more effective (yet little known treatments) using dermal rollers as part of advanced medical micro-needling treatment.
Traditionally medical micro-needling was the go-to cosmetic treatment when tackling the signs of ageing but dermal rollers are the more up to date, modern version of this treatment. Dermal rollers create tiny punctures within the skin which promote the growth of collagen – as well as elastin – whilst also encouraging a faster healing process. Dermal rollers are specially formulated with damaged and fragile skin in mind so are suitable for most skin types. Dermal rollers can be a great cosmetic treatment that is performed by many cosmetic professionals like Specialty Doctors in Dermatology, such as Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.
Dermal roller treatment is a quick procedure, usually performed as a 30 minute procedure – handy for most patients as it can be fitted into their busy schedule without too much inconvenience. Patients may experience to side-effects as a result of dermal roller treatment, although rare, which can include skin redness, swelling and slight bleeding to the area of treatment. These are minor side-effects and should subside within a day or two following treatment, but should none the less be carefully considered in order to make informed decision whether dermal roller treatment is right for you.
Dermal roller treatments also offer many positives for patients. Aside from being effective in treating acne scarring amongst other skin complaints, the convenience of the treatment cannot be underestimated. The dermal roller treatment can be fitted into your lunch break thanks to it usually taking less than an hour, making it a hugely convenient and accessible cosmetic treatment for most people. Dermal roller treatment also offers long term results that can change patients lives, building and improving their confidence. Dermal rollers are also wonderful for toning the skin and improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as the treatment promotes the production of elastin and collagen – both of which can help improve the tone of the skin and reverse the look of skin ageing.
Speak to the experts
Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock is a specialist doctor who works within dermatology exclusively and Medical Director at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic and had this to say about dermal rollers.
“Dermal rollers can be a great tool in the fight against acne scarring and can provide patients with dramatic and long term results that can have a huge impact on their confidence. I have personally seen the amazing the effects dermal roller treatment can have on patients, and as a Dermatologist I know I provide a treatment that can vastly improve the quality of my patients lives. Dermal roller treatment has become one of my favourite treatments to perform as a result, and is quickly growing in popularity within the clinic. I would strongly suggest undergoing the treatment with a skin expert, such as myself, because you are much more likely to gain a result of a higher standard as Dermatologists are trained specifically in this area.”
