Q&A: What is Dermaroller Skin Rejuvenation all About?

Everyone would like to have perfect skin; unfortunately this is not always possible. The natural wear and tear of life can take its toll on your skin and cause significant damage. Wrinkles can be caused by stress, acne can cause scarring and sun damage can cause visible damage to your skin. In past years there was no way of repairing this damage once it had been done, however new technology has meant that this is no longer the case. Sceptical? Me too, which is why as part of my commitment to better understand the MedSpa world and I took some time to interview MYA Cosmetic Surgery on this new treatment, Dermaroller.

PRETTY CONNECTED (PC): What is Dermaroller?

MYA COSMETIC SURGERY (MS): Dermaroller is a revolutionary technology we offer which neutrally rejuvenates your skin. It works through a micro-medical skin-needling procedure, which encourages skin rejuvenation and promotes collagen production. The tiny roller is moved across your damaged areas and stimulates the skin’s natural ability to heal itself, meaning that whether the damage is new or old, it can be repaired without the use of chemicals.

(PC): How does it work?

(MS): The procedure works by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself after a trauma or damage. After a physical injury to your skin, it will react naturally to reuse the damaged collagen and elastin fibres to produce new ones, allowing your skin to heal like the damage was never there. The same principal applies to the Dermaroller therapy as it causes micro-injuries to your skin and triggers new collagen and elastin production, to heal your damaged skin. The micro-injuries are so small that you can expect to have no scarring and to feel no pain whatsoever.

(PC): How long does it take?

(MS): The procedure itself will take a short 20-30 minutes, with an additional 20 minutes to apply a local anaesthetic to the skin to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure; therefore it is ideal as a quick fix to your skin damage.

(PC): Is it safe?

(MS): Before having the procedure we recommend that you have a consultation with one of our skincare experts to determine which treatment will be best for your specific problem.  This ensures that the correct treatment will be chosen to treat your condition, and to achieve the best results possible. Therefore throughout the process you are in extremely safe and skilled hands from your initial consultation, right up until your procedure.

In the past skin damage has been irreparable however new technologies and non-surgical treatments available today, mean that this is no longer the case. In fact skin damage is now entirely treatable and fixable, therefore damaged skin is well and truly a thing of the past.
