Skin repair with the Derma-needling


Skin repair with skin needling

using the Dermaroller® and DermapenTM

Genuine Dermaroller and Dermapen therapy to stimulate natural skin regeneration and scar repair.

What is skin needling therapy?

Both the Dermaroller and Dermapen are devices that contain clusters of micro-surgical precision needles used to stimulate damaged skin. The tiny needles come in various sizes, on the Dermaroller rotating on a roller that is pushed across the skin, and on the Dermapen moving vertically in response to a button. They can penetrate the skin to various controlled depths, upto a maximum of 2.5mm.

This micro-needling stimulates skin regeneration and rejuvenation, and scar repair, causing the skin to produce more collagen, the skin’s basic building block. Stimulation of collagen production in this way results in a younger, fresher, healthier, firmer, more vibrant skin appearance. With the treatment of scars (such as those resulting from acne or psoriasis) scar healing and reduction are promoted.

The reasons to start skin needling treatment include having lines, wrinkles or pigmentation caused by sun damage, acne scars or stretch marks (such as caused by pregnancy or other sudden changes in weight).

A treatment course consists of 3-5 sessions, with six weeks between each session. The Dermaroller is used for the treatment of general skin ageing and damage, and can be continued at home. The Dermapen, however, is more effective in treating pitted, scarred skin, and can be applied only by Dr Berlinde.

Excess sun exposure following the treatment should be avoided. A total sunblock is applied when the treatment is finished.

What happens after treatment?

Changes in the skin are gradual, building up as new collagen production is stimulated over a period of a few weeks. Changes include the following:

  1. Improved skin appearance
  2. Tightened skin
  3. Remodelled skin
  4. Enhanced skin architecture
  5. Repaired scars

Possible side-effects

Since the skin needling stimulates a natural healing process within the body, side-effects are quite rare, especially when the treatment is given in sterile conditions. Redness of the treated area is normal, but will settle down within 24 hours.
