Do you suffer from:
- > Aged or sun-damaged skin?
- > Acne scars?
- > Stretch marks?
- > Heavily lined or wrinkled skin?
Many people suffer from a variety of skin conditions, with some
people being very conscious of these skin 'defects'. If so, then
Dermaroller Therapy from Glasgow based clinic, Allure Aesthetics
could be the way forward for you.
But before you take the plunge, you need to know what
Dermaroller Therapy is all about.
What is Dermaroller Therapy?
Firstly, Dermaroller Therapy is only available from trained
practitioners, so you can be confident you are getting the best.
This therapy is a great advance in treatment for people with
scarring for a variety of reasons. For those people who have had
the treatment, the results are amazing and speak for themselves.
Depends on the skin condition and reasons for treatment some
patients may require a course of treatments.
The Dermaroller Therapy utilises a device called a 'roller'
which contains several finite, medical grade needles that are
clustered together. These clustered needles are mounted around the
rolling device and when applied to the skin area to be treated,
pierce the skin to a depth of around 1.5mm. It is important
to be aware however that home dermaroller kits can be purchased but
these have very small needles, only a medical professional can
treat you with medical devices which have needles longer than 1.5mm
which are required for treating stretch marks or body
How does Dermaroller therapy work?
It is important to note that it is not a painful procedure which
is usually the main concern of anyone who elects to have the
procedure, especially when they hear it involved the use of
needles. Anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area to be
treated around 30 minutes before the Dermaroller Therapy treatment
The idea behind the treatment is to stimulate the skin's 'trauma
and wound healing' process. This is created by the use of fine
needles on the roller that penetrate the layers of the skin. This
in turn, encourages new collagen to be formed, a process that can
be ongoing for 6 weeks or more.
Don't be disappointed if you don't see immediate improvements as
Dermaroller Therapy is meant to provide a long term solution to
badly scarred areas of the skin. The stimulation of the skins
repair mechanism means you'll be seeing improvements on a weekly
basis, over several months.
Dermaroller Therapy can be repeated after 6-8 weeks, depending
on the severity of the scarring and many clients do require several
treatments to see an improvement in the skin. Dermaroller Therapy
Glasgow specialist Allure Aesthetics will advise you as to the need
for further treatment. Generally, it very much depends on the level
of scarring to be treated as to whether Dermaroller Therapy needs
to continue or not.
What about side-effects?
Thankfully, side-effects are very rare with this safe skin
treatment. The needle procedure causes the skin to 'close up' and
in the immediate hours after the Dermaroller Therapy application,
you may experience redness and a sensation akin to sunburn. This
redness and mild discomfort will fade over 24 hours and, in our
experience, clients are left with very little redness after this
