Our skin relies on collagen to give it bounce and elasticity but, as we age, production can slow down leaving skin saggy and wrinkled. At the Knightsbridge Laser Clinic we conduct Derma Roller micro-needling to encourage the skin to produce collagen, rejuvenating it and reducing the appearance of scars such as acne scars and stretch marks.
The Derma Roller has a barrel covered in needles; as these are rolled across your skin they leave tiny punctures which encourages the skin to produce growth factors and then in turn elastin and collagen. This helps the skin to repair scars, UV damage and lines and wrinkles. The treatment gives results similar to laser treatment and chemical peels but without the need for chemicals or removing the outer layers of skin. It is also non-invasive and requires no ‘down time’ afterwards, although your skin may feel slightly tender. We will discuss aftercare with you as you will need to be careful with your skin post-treatment to avoid irritation.
One of the other bonuses of the Derma Roller is that it can be used on all the skin of all ethnicities and even on the more delicate skin around the eyes and mouth. It is also one of the few treatments that is effective on stretch marks and is one of the most cost-effective rejuvenation treatments.
