Dermarolling is performed under topical anaesthesia. The microneedles are rolled across the skin surface, causing microscopic breaks which cause an inflammatory reaction. This reaction helps produce new collagen and elastin, which gives skin its youthful appearance. Our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Keith Marcus, recommends using Environ skincare after treatment for unparalleled results because the line is highly efficacious and clinically researched with Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
A series of 3-6 treatments can typically result in making the skin look younger by removing stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and other skin related blemishes.
Some patients have asked if this procedure can be done at home. While a cosmetic version of the dermaroller is sold for at-home use, the medical grade dermaroller is much more effective. The at-home version is more beneficial as a part of a normal skin care regimen as opposed to a medical grade treatment.
