Dermapen & Dermaroller
(Medical Micro Needling) is a medical device that helps combat the appearance of scars, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Medical Micro Needling is the latest Collagen Induction Therapy. It induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin restoring the healthy youthful appearance of the skin.
Dermal Roller/Dermapen is a fully registered and licensed treatment. The devise is of single use and disposable. Dermaroller/Dermapen is used by trained skin care professionals only.Treatments are done every 4-6 weeks. Depending on the skin condition a course of 6 skin needling sessions is usually sufficient. Collagen formation can continue for up to 12 months after one treatment
The treatment is recommended for improving the appearance of:
- Acne scarring and surgical scars
- Fine facial lines and wrinkles
- Aged and sun damaged skin
- Open pores reduction
- Improves skin pigmentation
The revolutionary Dermapen/Dermaroller can help you if you want to get rid of unsightly scars. Using very fine microneedles, this advanced treatment is designed to lessen the appearance of scar tissue. It works by using tiny needles that penetrate the skin to promote the production of cutaneous collagen, healing scarred tissue even in areas of the body that may be sensitive or difficult to reach, such as around the eyes or lips. It’s a safe alternative to traditional laser surgery and chemical peels, with minimum discomfort and recovery time.
At the Angel Laser Clinic, we use the versatile Dermapen/dermaroller to help reduce the appearance of several common types of scarring, including scars resulting from acne, surgery and burns. You’ll start by having a full consultation with one of our experienced skin consultants here in our Central London clinic, during which you’ll let us know your requirements and an appropriate course of treatment will be decided.
Effective treatment for acne scarring
Acne isn’t just hard to deal with when an outbreak is being treated. It often leaves unsightly scarring in its wake, providing a lasting reminder of this common yet much-maligned skin complaint. However, there is a solution. Dermapen treatments for acne scarring work by encouraging new tissue growth and breaking up the uneven, fibrous scar tissue left behind where skin follicles have been clogged up by dirt and oil. Patients typically need five to six short sessions to see the fantastic results of Dermapen treatment for acne scars, and healing time is fast because the Dermapen doesn’t damage the epidermis (unlike other treatments for acne scarring).
The Highlights of Skin needling are:
- Minimal downtime
- Suitable for treating all skin types
- Much less invasive than Dermabrasion, Lasers and Deep Chemical Peels and has similar results
- Does not require the removal of the epidermis therefore the healing time is shorter and there is no post-treatment skin sensitivity to UV light
Reduce the appearance of surgical scars
As well as being used to heal the deep scars caused by surgical incisions, Dermapen/Dermaroller is able to help reduce the appearance of scarring from a range of electrical, heat, chemical, radiation and friction burns. All these types of scars are prone to becoming thicker over time, and burn scars have the added problem of causing skin to tighten, which can be uncomfortable or even painful. The Dermapen penetrates the scar tissue to promote healing, resulting in a better appearance and more supple skin. The number of treatments required will depend on the type and severity of your scarring, and an appropriate course of treatment will be decided on during your initial consultation.
