Acne scars can be an eyesore — they not only spoil the beauty of the skin but can also cause discomfort for the individual
There are lots of treatments for acne scars — some effective, a lot of them not so. However, there is one answer to all woes related to acne scars — the Dermaroller. If you are one being needled by acne scars, there is no reason to despair. It is time to needle the scars away!
What are Dermarollers?
The Dermaroller is a simple concept that provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair naturally and safely, to turn smoother, brighter, healthier and youthful.
Dermarollers are also a simple, quick and effective way that reduces acne scars permanently and does not require any downtime. The therapy involves tiny needles which penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of up to 1.5mm.
The process stimulates collagen formation which helps reduce acne scars. The Dermaroller needles create micro channels in the skin for tropical gels and creams to be absorbed more efficiently through the top layer (epidermis) of the skin.
The Dermaroller process is painless, as the service is carried out with topical anaesthesia. There are absolutely no side-effects, it is perfectly safe and more importantly is FDA-approved. There could be temporary redness and a bit of swelling in the area where the treatment is administered, but this is usually gone in a couple of days.
For optimum results, it is usually recommend undergoing four sessions of Dermaroller treatments at eight to ten-week intervals between two sessions as it takes time for collagen to remodel. Regular Dermaroller sessions help to encourage an on-going collagen production and eventually a reduction in acne scars.
