Acne is the world’s most common skin condition and affects millions of people worldwide, however this fact is little consolation to those who suffer with acne. If you feel like it’s time to make a positive step on the road to clearer skin then dermaroller treatment might be the solution for you.
What is it?
Dermaroller treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that harnesses the effective principles of medical micro-needling treatment to combat skin issues such as acne, acne scarring, and lines and wrinkles. Dermaroller treatment involves moving the dermaroller over the surface of the patient’s skin in order to puncture the surface in a controlled, safe way. This is an effective defense against acne and the scarring that can come with acne as dermaroller treatment stimulates faster skin repairing time and increased collagen production. Dermaroller treatment is a hugely popular cosmetic treatment and comes with a wealth of benefits that sway many patients to undergo the treatment each year. One of these benefits is that dermaroller treatment is quick and convenient; the treatment can usually be performed in just 30 minutes and requires no recovery time. This is a big benefit for many patients as it can allow them to tackle their acne in a time frame that fits their busy lifestyle. Another benefit of dermaroller treatment is that the treatment can vastly improve the condition of the skin to combat against a number of different skin issues including acne and acne scarring. Thanks to dermaroller’s collagen growth properties, patients can also vastly improve the look of loose or wrinkled skin, restoring a youthful firmness to the skin.
The results from dermaroller treatment may not be instantly noticeable following treatment as it takes time for the new collagen to develop, but patients usually begin to see the results of their treatment within 2-3 months following treatment. These results will carry on improving over the next 6 months. Dermaroller treatment is usually performed in a course of 3 to 5 sittings with intervals of 6-8 weeks between each setting. Patients should not experience any pain during treatment but may feel mild discomfort; numbing cream will be applied to the skin prior to treatment in order to reduce this.
Although dermaroller treatment can do wonderful things for those struggling with acne and the scarring that can come with the skin condition, it also carries risks and possible side-effects that patients need to be aware of. The main risk that patients face when undergoing dermaroller treatment is the risk of infection. This shouldn’t be something patients experience when undergoing treatment with qualified and experienced cosmetic professionals, as always advised. Immediately following treatment patients may experience some a ‘flushed’ or red appearance to the skin and a tightening sensation to the treated area; this usually subsides within 48 hours following treatment.
“Dermaroller treatment is an amazing cosmetic treatment that can provide patients with long-term improvements to the condition of their skin. Many of our patients that opt for this treatment are struggling with the look of their acne prone skin and the scarring they have been left with. Dermaroller treatment gives them a solution to their skin issues and allows them to be confident in their appearance once more. If you are considering dermaroller treatment then I would strongly suggest talking to a cosmetic professional with a background in dermatology. Here at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic all of our cosmetic doctors, cosmetic dermatologists and beauty therapists have a background in skincare or dermatology and are dedicated to providing the best possible results for all of our patients.”
