This is a technique that uses hundreds of tiny acupuncture needles fixed on a roller (like a tiny paint roller). As the needles penetrate the layers of the skin, it stimulates at a deeper level to repair and regenerate itself, resulting in smoother, healthier, more radiant and youthful skin.
- It significantly improves the appearance of
- Lines and wrinkles in the face and décolletage
- Sun damaged and ageing skin
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
It is a painless procedure as local anaesthetic cream is used to numb the skin. The microscopic holes close immediately. This will stimulate natural collagen and elastin generation, the formation of new skin cells and an enhanced blood supply. Derma-stamp is highly effective for treating deep scars and pock marks, based on the same principle there are 10 micro needles close together at the end of a stamping device.
It can take up to 6 weeks for results to be visible but the skin continues the regeneration process for continuing months, resulting in long term radiance.
The procedure will typically take between 20 and 30 minutes. Slight redness and warm glow may be experienced following the procedure but this usually subsides within a few hours and complete recovery is within 48 hours
Optimum results are achieved by a series of treatments six weeks apart. In cases such as acne scarring up to 5 treatments would produce the most dramatic results. This can be complemented with home dermaroller starter pack which can be prescribed at the same time.
