Simply put, microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment, where a medical device is used for the insertion of very fine needles into the skin, for the purposes of skin rejuvenation through the induction of newly formed collagen.
Microneedling uses your body’s own natural healing process to promote skin repair through the formation of new collagen which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, loss of skin volume, crepey skin and Acne scarring. This result is a thicker, more supple, cellular matrix and visibly younger looking skin.
Microneedling Collagen Induction therapy is clinically proven and is perhaps the most successful treatment available for the common signs and symptoms of aging.
PROOF: The image shows a biopsy of the epidermis before and after micro-needling therapy. Significant new collagen (dyed purple) has been generated, 6 weeks after a single treatment.
The Micro Needles on the Dermaroller® hand piece cause minimally invasive precision micro-injuries of the epidermis and dermis, without causing open wounds or ablative damage. The puncturing channels close after a short time and these micro-injuries trigger the body’s wound healing cascade, which induces an increased collagen production in the treated skin.The construction of new tissue and healthy cell regeneration, reduces wrinkles, tightens and thickens the skin, and – perhaps most impressively – fills and smooths scars.
The eDermaStamp® by Dermaroller®’s surgical-grade micro-needles reach beyond the epidermis into the dermis, causing pin-point bleeding and triggering the body’s spontaneous healing response.
2. Healing Cascade
Within minutes, the perforation channels close and the healing cascade starts, invading the area with collagen-producing fibroblasts and growth-promoting properties.
3. Younger Looking Skin
New organized collagen & elastin forms, bolstering from within, while the epidermis becomes thicker and more supple, each time a treatment is performed.
The eDermaStamp® by Dermaroller® is a medical device licensed by Health Canada. There are countless imitation products on the market that are not licensed by Health Canada so we recommend you do your research, to protect your health and safety.
Results may be noticed within as little as 1 week post-treatment, however it can take as long as 12 weeks to see the full effects.
Dermaroller® offers unmatched versatility for microneedling treatments, making it a safe and effective treatment option for the face, neck , and décolletage, to name a few.
While some may see results after just one treatment, for optimal results, Collagen induction usually requires 3 treatments, while scar reduction requires between 3 and 6 treatments. 4 to 6 weeks should pass between one treatment and the next.
The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with an appropriate numbing cream so it should not hurt at all. Some people report a light prickling sensation.
Your treatment begins with cleaning of the skin, followed by an application of numbing cream to decrease sensation during the treatment.
Most people will notice redness and a tight skin feeling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours. We suggest you avoid any make up for the remainder of the day following the treatment, however any redness can easily be covered the next day with a mineral makeup. Using the provided hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation.
