Facial Rejuvenation and treatment of acne scars with Derma Roller

Collagen is one of the proteins that form the dermis, ligament, tendon, bone and cartilage and plays an important role in maintaining skin elasticity. Three amino-acid chains twist together to form a helical structure.

    Derma Roller is also known as Micro Needle Therapy, Derma Rolling, Chinese Micro Needling, Skin Rolling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). It provides results similar to Laser Resurfacing, Fraxel and Chemical Peels but at a fraction of the cost and with no downtime.

    The first use of skin needling for cosmetic purposes was documented thousands of years ago as part of the system of Chinese medicine. The development of skin needling in the Western world is a recent trend and thoroughly investigated and researched. Derma Roller treatment stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally resulting in firmer, tighter and noticeably improved radiant skin. It is a skin rejuvenating process unique amongst other skincare treatments, as it is safe and offers a natural skin rejuvenation process, dramatically smoothing wrinkles, fine lines and reducing the appearance of crow’s feet.

    Derma Roller also significantly improves the penetration of creams, gels and oils. As the products are absorbed far more successfully, their performance is boosted and you will see enhanced results, leading to healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin.

    Eli will administer a local anesthetic cream before using the Derma Roller on your face. This allows the high-grade micro needles to penetrate the upper layer of the skin without causing you discomfort.

    The technique creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis, which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Unlike with other resurfacing techniques, Derma Roller does not remove the healthy epidermis, which means that the treatment is relatively painless and recovery is immediate.

    At the end of your treatment, a calming anti-inflammatory cream mixed with a serum rich in Hyaluronic acid is applied to calm, enhance elasticity and plump up the skin.

    Derma Roller is effective as a stand-alone treatment or as an excellent complement to Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.
