DERMA-ROLLING / MICRO-NEEDLING EXPLAINED
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF SKIN REJUVENATION AND WHY CHOOSE DERMAROLLING/ MICRONEEDLING?
The Goal of any Skin Rejuvenating Treatment is to optimize skin cell function, break down scar tissue, strengthen the skin barrier and induce regenerative healing while preserving the integrity of the epidermis. This is done through initiating the wound healing cascade causing the release of epidermal growth factors and increasing natural collagen of the right type (woven natural collagen as opposed to scar producing collagen). Dermal needling is the only Skin Rejuvenating Treatment that does all this and respects all 3 main target cell types (keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts). As opposed to other treatments such as laser resurfacing, dermabrasion and chemical peels, “dermal needling eliminates the risk of melanocyte heat injury and actually optimizes cell function, making it the ideal treatment for all skin types.” This means that Microneedling does not carry the risk of causing hyperpigmentation post procedure like other Skin Rejuvenating Treatments can.
DERMAROLLING, Microneedling or CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is the only Skin Rejuvenation Treatment that maximizes penetration of essential cell nutrients and maximizes release of growth factors associated with the positive aspects of wound healing simultaneously.
Microneedling with the use of a Dermaroller or Automatic Microneedling Pen is clinically proven to be effective in healing damaged skin and can dramatically improve skins appearance making it appear more youthful–with multiple treatments and proper use of Dermaroller or Microneedling Pen and following protocol regarding skincare products and supplements to maximize collagen production and healing.
