What is Dermal Therapy for?
Significantly improving the appearance of facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and ageing skin, acne scars and stretch marks has never been easier thanks to the innovative and award-winning non-surgical skin regeneration procedure Genuine Dermal roller Therapy.
It is particularly effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing, as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. Collagen Stimulation Therapy can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types and colours on men and women.
How Dermal Therapy works
Dermal roller Therapy provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Dermal roller is a treatment for both acne scarring and rejuvenation. It’s completely safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of the skin.
Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Collagen Stimulation Therapy is an innovative treatment which harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to achieve smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
A specifically designed device which contains numerous micro-needles is used to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. This ensures minimal bleeding and induces regeneration via the wound-healing process.
When the skin is rolled, it creates tiny channels deep in to the dermis of the skin. These deep channels cause keratinocytes and fibroblasts to produce numerous growth factors that induce collagen synthesis. The stimulation of growth factors is based on how the body naturally rebuilds skin density and integrity. This is what is called the wound healing process. When rollers are used in conjunction with specially formulated creams, specific cells can be targeted for maximum therapeutic effect such as anti-ageing or reduction of pigmentation.
Cosmetic needling achieves results through increased quantities and access of cell nutrients to the skin, thus optimising cell function. In addition, injury to the keratinocytes promotes the epidermal growth factor (EGF) and increases cell turnover.
The cosmetic roller uses very fine stainless steel needles with a depth of 0.2 0.3mm to make channels into the epidermis, allowing up to 80% more product absorption (compared to 7-10% with normal topical application).
Skin Needling is a non-ablative skin rejuvenation technique that offers a more physiologically compatible way of triggering collagen synthesis. This method promotes collagen and elastin production through micro-injury to the fibroblasts.
The medical roller uses very fine, surgical stainless steel/titanium needles ranging between 0.5 3.0mm in depth to make channels into the epidermis and dermis. This is to release growth factors that promote SCARLESS healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen rather than scar collagen.
At The London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic, we offer a variety of cosmetic and medical dermal rollers, which are only done by our trained practitioners.
It is important that the skin is cared for on an on-going daily basis. You will be advised which products are best to use post treatment, dependent on your skin type.
