The Cosmetic Skin Clinic's 2019 Roundup
Genuine Dermaroller™ therapy stimulates collagen induction to improve poor quality skin and scarred skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely with long lasting results.
Genuine Dermaroller therapy, also known as ‘micro-needling’ or ‘collagen induction therapy’, is a first-class technology that can result in smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin for both men and women.
*DISCLAIMER Patient experience and results may vary. These are dependent on a number of factors such as lifestyle, age and medical history.
Collagen is naturally produced by our body, helping our skin to look firm and younger. The older we get, the less collagen the body produces – the result is loss of elasticity and evidence of wrinkles and lines.
The Genuine Dermaroller is a multi gold award-winning, sterile single-use medical device that produces thousands of micro needle columns in your skin. These microscopic scratches encourage new collagen to grow and for skin to heal naturally.
EDS® needling (also known as EDS Regenerate) is a new innovation from the creators of Genuine Dermaroller. EDS micro-needling works in exactly the same way – and for the same conditions – except that it is electronically powered and specifically designed for a speedier, more comfortable treatment with a superb outcome. A course of this treatment is normally recommended for optimum results.
This advanced micro-needling procedure can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. As you age, open pores can make skin look coarser: the Genuine Dermaroller is an effective non-surgical way to treat these.
For optimum results, we may recommend combining micro-needling with a course of Restylane Vital™. Its natural hydrating properties are ideal for skin with a rough dehydrated appearance such as open pores.
It can take up to six weeks to see visible results.
The repair and rejuvenation process will continue for several months, with visible results that continue to improve as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
Your practitioner will first use an anaesthetic cream to numb your skin so that the procedure is comfortable. This is applied 45 minutes prior to the treatment. The micro-needling treatment then takes 30-45 minutes approx. depending on the size of area being treated.
We always recommend that Genuine Dermaroller therapy is undertaken by a medical practitioner trained in the treatment. Dr Tracy Mountford personally handpicks and trains all of our medical practitioners to the highest level.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
We use Aestheticare’s Genuine Dermaroller due to its superior reputation with needle quality designed for maximum safety and effectiveness.
There is little to no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
Some people may experience mild redness and swelling after treatment so it is advisable to stay out of the sun and avoid heavy make up for up to 24 hours.
