What is Collagen Stimulation / Dermaroller™ Therapy?
The epidermis, or outer layer of skin is our only protection from the environment. To rejuvenate our skin we need a perfect epidermis, Dermaroller™ Therapy helps to stimulate the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.
How Does Dermaroller™ Work
The Dermaroller works on the principle of utilising ‘micro-needles’. The primary function of this treatment is to cause microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface of the skin (epidermis). As a response, platelets are released, these in turn produce a series of growth factors that promote the body’s own production of natural collagen and elastin. The treatment is performed using a topical anaesthesia, which is applied prior to the procedure taking place.
For maximum benefits a course of Dermaroller™ treatments is recommended, along with the use of active ingredients of Vitamin A and Vitamin C from the Environ skin care range.
