What happens during a Dermaroller treatment?
Thirty minutes prior to the start of your treatment, your botonics Dermaroller practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb your skin.
Your botonics practitioner will use a Genuine Dermaroller medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.
It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy treatment.
Genuine Dermaroller Therapy uses the Dermaroller, a high quality sterile single use medical device, the only such device approved within the EU and only available in the UK and Ireland from trained medical practitioners and authorised clinics such as botonics.
The device penetrates the skin with thousands of microscopic needle-columns, which encourages the skin’s natural repair process. As the skin regenerates, new collagen and skin cells are formed and blood supply is enhanced.
Your botonics practitioner will normally recommend that your Genuine Dermaroller Therapy consists of a series of 2 – 3 Dermaroller treatment with approximately 6 weeks between them.
In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary for your practitioner to extend your Genuine Dermaroller Therapy.
