Dermal Rolling/Skin Needling

A cosmetic procedure where a precise instrument with fine needles that creates tiny micro punctures is rolled over the skin, to open the pores on the surface with pin-point accuracy on the face and neck. The treatment helps to reduce visible sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigmentation. It is also referred to as Collagen Channelling or Collagen Induction Therapy.

How does it work?

The Dermal Roller is a special instrument with fine medical needles that create tiny micro-punctures on the skin’s surface layer. Channels are created that run deep into the dermis of the skin, which cause keratinocytes (predominant cell types in the epidermis) and fibroblasts (a cell that synthesizes the extracellular matrix and collagen) to produce numerous growth factors to induce collagen without any damage to the epidermis at all.

Treatment info

A dermal roller treatment is mildly uncomfortable, however a numbing cream will be used. The procedure takes around 60 minutes. A series of up to three treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal results. Take-home dermal rollers are also available.
