Rehanna is a certified Genuine Dermartoller clinician by Aestheticare
We will use a Genuine Dermaroller™ medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly, enabling the skin to recover quickly, often in the same day. Your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin, making the procedure comfortable. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy procedure.
After a Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
Your practitioner will normally recommend that your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ consists of a series of three Genuine Dermaroller™ procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them.
In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary for your practitioner to extend your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™, carrying out up to five procedures.
The Dermaroller™ medical devices are designed to be used by trained medical practitioners and their clinics in a procedure that will create approx 300 micro medical needle channels per cm² in to the dermis of the skin. Below the outer stratum corneum layer of the epidermis the needle is penetrating in to living tissue. In the dermis, the target area of Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™, there is a complex of epithelial cells, blood supply, nerve cells, extracellular matrix, collagen, elastin and cells such as fibroblasts that produce and repair this essential part of our bodies. By providing a controlled physical stimulation of the dermis, your practitioner is able to initiate a natural skin regeneration and repair process that can lead to smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin and that can help improve and smooth atrophic scaring caused by diseases such as acne and chicken pox, and injury. To achieve the desired results, it is often necessary to carry out 3 procedures approx 6 weeks apart. This will always be done under consultation and agreement with your medical aesthetic clinic.
But don’t get fooled into thinking that skin-needling is a procedure you should do yourself at home, no matter what some of the non-medical device needle roller re-sellers and websites say. For an effective treatment, your practitioner will be looking to achieve pin-point bleeding, uniform redness and slight swelling across the treatment area. The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ will however be comfortable, a topical anaesthetic will be applied (this should only be used under medical supervision), this "numbing" effect along with the quality of the device and the technique of the trained practitioner will make the procedure a pleasant experience. Once the Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure has finished and the skin has been cleansed and soothed, the treated area will look just like the sunburn we mentioned earlier and will feel warm and tight. Because Genuine Dermaroller™ practitioners have been through thorough training, effective treatment can be provided around the delicate mouth area, around the sensitive eye contour and even on the eye-lids, but this should only be done under the care of a trained medical professional within an approved Genuine Dermaroller™ medical aesthetic practice.
The tremendous benefits of Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy are not only the fantastic clinical results but the excellent safety profile and lack of down-time associated with the procedure. Because the Genuine Dermaroller™ medical device is of such high quality, with precision, surgical needles that are incredibly sharp and fine and a medically engineered design (including needle-length), minimal pressure is required to achieve the creation of the multiple skin-needle columns and virtually no unnecessary peripheral damage is caused to the skin. Therefore your practitioner can achieve optimum stimulation of the dermis, whilst keeping the outer layer of the skin the epidermis intact. This reduces the risk of exposure to UV and minimises the “social down time”. Normally after a procedure, the skin looks like moderate sunburn that will normally significantly reduce within 12-24 hours.
