TheSmartSkinClinic is exstatic to launch Micro-needle DermaRoller treatments in
Malta. The Dermaroller is a convenient multipurpose device used for the treatment
of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation,
cellulite and stretch marks.
It is a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium microneedles which
penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage and with minimal bleeding.
This accurate and minimally intrusive penetration allows much higher absorption
of topical formulations, such as serums and creams. It also stimulates the skin’s
self-repair and regeneration processes as it can initiate the skin’s healing response.
In contrast to many other skin renewal treatments, such as chemo- and dermabrasion
or laser resurfacing, treatment with the Dermaroller does not destroy the upper
layers of the skin to induce collagen growth. Instead, it induces collagen synthesis
by creating micro-punctures in the epidermis without compromising its integrity,
without a prolonged down time and without a high risk of complications. Finally,
the Dermaroller is also the most cost-effective way of effective skin regeneration
when compared to other therapies. The Dermaroller is a breakthrough tool, simple
in design and yet yielding superb results. It has been hailed as “The magic wand
of skin care”.
How does it work?
The procedure involved in treatment with the Dermaroller is commonly known as called
Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen
synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin.
As it is rolled over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate
through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. By opening
the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical
product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that
stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important
factors for a healthy skin.
The concept of Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s
natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as
cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin,
our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged
skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction
of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which
trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring
as in contrast with natural healing processes, the procedure is carried out on healthy
skin in a sterile environment.
The Dermaroller in conjunction with cosmeceuticals which are available at TheSmartSkinClinic
in Malta, stimulates new collagen production, thereby leading to a visible reduction
of wrinkles and scars, as well as increase in skin firmness. Thickening of the skin
caused by regular use of the Dermaroller significantly reduces the visibility of
broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation.
What happens post treatment?
Deeper penetration is achieved by the dermaroller treatments which our Doctor at
TheSmartSkinClinic performs. Deeper scarring after acne and even certain stretch-marks
and surgical or traumatic scars can be effectively improved in appearance.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm and 0.3mm available for home use have sharp,
durable titanium needles that do not cause appreciable pain or bleeding and can
be used after the procedure to perpetuate the effects which will be visible after
the very 1st treatment done at TheSmartSkinClinic.
Is skin needling safe?
It does not involve injection of drugs under the skin and therefore allergic reactions
and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal or no
downtime, rapid healing and requires simple aftercare.
