Microneedling Pen / Roller Treatment
What is involved in the procedure and does it hurt? The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with a topical numbing cream, it should not hurt at all. Skin is thoroughly needled in such a way that each skin park is needled 15-20 times. An even flushing to the skin is the best indication for a perfect medical treatment.
How many treatments are needed? It is recommended to start with 3 medical treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart between treatments. Then depending on the skin, more treatments may be required. Results can be seen in 6 weeks and the process continues over the following months.The home care roller is used in conjunction with the medical treatments once-twice a week.
What to expect post treatment? The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades quickly within hours of the treatment from a redness to pink which may last 12-24 hours on average. The use of healing minerals, hyaluronic acid after procedures and a sunscreen will protect the skin. Do not use AHA’s, retinol or acidic active ingredients on the skin.The dermaquest post needling kit is best used after a treatment and together with the Home care roller.
Are there any side effects? Since Micro-needle Roller or Pen does not use any form of thermal heat (unlike IPL and lasers) it is safe to use on all skin types and colour. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. There are almost no side-effects, none which have been reported in over 200,000 procedures worldwide.
Risk of post-op infections? Since the tiny pricking channels close within minutes, post-op infections are very unlikely.
What is the difference between Medical Pen or Roller and Home Care Roller? The only difference is the needle size. Medical rollers have longer needles to induce collagen to deeper skin layers usually from 0.5mm – 2mm in length. The body starts to naturally regenerate skin working below the surface in the dermis. New skin cells are stimulated and blood supply is enhanced.The Home Care rollers are very short, usually only 0.2mm needle length. Home care rollers help to enhance active substances through the skin barrier (stratum corneum) and improve and support results after and an in-between medical CIT treatments by stimulating the epidermal cells for proliferation which aids in faster renewal cycles of the epidermis and thickens the epidermal cell layers. The epidermis will increase in thickness over time and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Home care rollers help to maintain beautiful skin, reduce pore sizes and oil flow, help acne breakouts and provide a stronger more protected skin barrier. It does not stimulate collagen like the medical rollers.The home care roller is painless to use and results are seen within 2 months.
