Micro Needling Therapy – Dermaroller

For outstanding skin rejuvenation, Medical Micro Needling, more commonly known as Dermaroller is a must, as part of your anti-ageing, beauty regime. It will revitalise your skin and leave it younger-looking.

Unlike chemical peels, micro-dermabrasion and laser resurfacing, medical Micro Needling is not detrimental to the epidermis, (the top layer of skin). The epidermis remains intact. Additionally there is no risk of permanent skin discolouration or skin sensitivity to UV light. Furthermore, it is suitable for all skin types and the results have been clinically proven.

What is Medical Micro Needling?

Medical Micro Needling uses a precision hand held device such as a medical grade Dermaroller, which penetrates the skin, creating thousands of minuscule pin-prick wounds.

These microscopic perforations to the skin trigger the release of growth factors, which promote new collagen and elastin to be produced.

The healing time is rapid and the procedure almost painless, in comparison to harsher resurfacing techniques.

How does Medical Micro-Needling Work?

By the age of 35 we have already lost half of the collagen in our skin and elastin (which makes our skin elastic). The reason Micro Needling is so powerful, is due to its collagen and elastin production. It stimulates the skin’s ability to repair itself.

A pin prick injury from a medical Micro Needle/Dermaroller undergoes the same 3 stages of healing as a larger wound:

1) Inflammation

This begins after the treatment. The skin becomes red.

2) Proliferation

(Tissue Formation) – Healthy tissue growth is stimulated by tissue proliferation and growth factors

White blood cells work on the injured tissue eliminating it of bacteria and waste. The process of healing starts. A few days after the wound forms, cells called keratinocytes begin proliferating, which results in the epidermis becoming thicker.

Cells called fibroblasts migrate to the injured tissue area and stimulate collagen and elastin production, as well as proteoglycans, and other matrix components.

3) Tissue Remodelling Formation
 2 days after the Procedure

Collagen type III, the main form of collagen produced in early wound healing is laid down, just below the basal layer of the epidermis.

5 days after the Procedure

The matrix is re-established and over the next few months, collagen type III is gradually replaced by collagen type I, which increases tissue strength. This tissue remodelling continues for a year or more.

Benefits of Medical Micro-Needling/Dermaroller

The use of a medical grade Dermaroller will be beneficial if you have:

  • Fine, medium or heavy wrinkling
  • Minor or severe loss of skin firmness and elasticity
  • Medium and heavy wrinkling
  • Diluted pores and comedones
  • Indented acne scars
  • Chicken pox scars
  • Old surgical scars
  • Hyperpigmentation

 Does it Hurt?

Micro Needling at Detox on Demand is painless. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied before the treatment.

Increased absorption of Topical Creams/Serums

After micro-needling therapy, any topical serums/creams applied to your skin is absorbed much more readily. Their absorption rate is accelerated by as much as 300%, due to the microscopic channels created deep in the dermis of the skin. Thus, this is an ideal way to optimize anti-ageing serums on your skin.

A potent, professional serum rich in nutrients will be applied to your skin following treatment. This willdeeply nourish, hydrate and leave your skin revitalized.

What will my skin look like after treatment?

Following the treatment your skin will look moderately reddened. This will diminish within the first hour and will have totally gone within 2 days.

Your skin will start to rejuvenate immediately, but it may take 6 weeks for visible effects. The healing of the skin continues over the following months and your complexion and skin’s appearance will improve with stunning results.dermaroller

Highlights

  • Minimal down time
  • Short healing time
  • Measurable and remarkable results
  • Softens fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces appearance of acne scars and other depressed scars on the body
  • Leaves epidermis intact
  • Increased absorption of creams and serums following treatment

 How many Treatments are Required?

3 treatments, 6 weeks apart, in any one year, will give you the youthful appearance you are seeking.

For maximum benefits combine micro needling with cosmetic acupuncture. Micro-needling therapy/Dermaroller is excellent for surface lines and wrinkles and boosts collagen production, whilst cosmetic acupuncture is remarkable for lifting, toning and sculpting the face.

At Detox on Demand only single use, medical grade Dermarollers are used. As the epidermis is not damaged it reduces the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation.

LED Light Emission Therapy

Following your Dermaroller treatment your skin’s healing will be accelerated with the use of a LED Light Emitting Diode.

Cellular tissue has within it the capacity to repair itself at a specific rate. However, there are molecules within the cells called photo-acceptors that, when activated, speed up the cell repair process.

At Detox on Demand we use a safe, effective, light emitting diode to activate these photo-acceptors, to increase the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair. Additionally the LED boosts your immune system, improves blood supply, reduces redness and helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue.
