What is Dermaroller and how is it applied?
Dermaroller is a cylindrical apparatus covered with very fine needles.
The procedure is based on the principle that this cylinder is rolled over the skin to open thousands of micro-holes. It is also called mesoroller or micro needling. Micro traumas created by the holes in the skin make the organism initiate its own regeneration mechanisms.
The repair process and increase in growth factors cause significant collagen tissue growth. It takes several months to see the maximum effect. Dermaroller is applied in various directions for the needles to go through the different targeted regions. To increase the effectiveness of the procedure various therapeutic products can be used. The effect of therapeutic products on the skin surface increases 200 % due to the absorption during the Dermaroller procedure. It is not painful even though it is based on the needling principle. In any case, local anesthetic creams can be applied before the procedure to prevent any possible pain.
