Dermaroller FAQ’s

We were surprised by the number of questions we received from our last post about the Dermaroller! There were so many in fact that we decided to answer the most popular questions this week.

Dermaroller-FAQ-faq(2)

1. How quickly can I see results?
You will see results within 2-3 days after treatment. Because micro-needling stimulates natural collagen production at the cellular level, your skin continues looking smoother and firmer up to 8 weeks after treatment.

2. How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the individual skin condition, skin sufficiently resurfaces after 1-3 Medical Dermaroller procedures. To allow skin cell regeneration, you should wait at least 6-8 weeks between procedures.

3.What is the procedure like?
The micro-needling device used looks like a shaving razor with a drum. The drum can differ in widths, and is embedded with up to hundreds of fine micro-needles for penetrating the skin. The entire procedure is all natural and fast:

  • We’ll apply a numbing cream on the treatment area.
  • Then we’ll roll the micro-needling device across the treatment area, puncturing the skin in a specific pattern.
  • As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound.
  • This creates a controlled “injury” on and below the skin’s surface that triggers the body to “fill” these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, and by stimulating skin cell regeneration.
  • You can resume regular activities almost immediately.

4. How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the individual skin condition, skin sufficiently resurfaces after 1-3 Dermaroller procedures. To allow skin cell regeneration, you should wait at least 6-8 weeks between procedures. As aging continues, we recommend one refresher treatment every year.

5. If I use my micro-needling device more frequently will I achieve better results?
No. After every micro-needling procedure, time is required for the body to naturally allow collagen to mature. Performing a procedure any more frequently than every 6-8 weeks is counterproductive and only invites additional trauma and unnecessary costs.

6. Can I achieve the same results if I use a micro-needling device at home?
No. A Dermaroller procedure should be performed by a trained medical professional in order to obtain maximum results. Don’t be deceived into believing that you can get the same results as a trained medical professional by doing it yourself.

7. Can any one perform medical micro-needling?
No. Micro-needling is regarded as a medical procedure because it reaches deep into the dermis. It can cause damage when performed incorrectly. There is more to it than simply needling the skin.

If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve spent the last few months worshiping the sun every chance you get. Whether it’s at the beach, by the pool or at a backyard BBQ, we just can’t get enough of summer and all that it has to offer.

But also like a lot of people, you could be noticing the damage that all that sun exposure has done to your skin, making you could look older than your years.

Saying goodbye to lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks is now easier than ever, thanks to an exciting non-surgical skin regeneration procedure called Dermaroller (Skin-Needling) Therapy.

dermaroller-jennifer_anistonThe treatment uses tiny micro-medical needles on the skin encouraging regeneration and repair, leaving you with smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

If it’s Good Enough for Jennifer Aniston
it Just Might Be Good Enough for You!

Many Hollywood stars are having Dermaroller treatment to achieve a younger looking, glowing skin. Jennifer Aniston reportedly uses Dermaroller Therapy to give her skin a fresh faced, natural look.

Why do they love it? Dermaroller Therapy offers amazing results without the inconvenient downtime that comes with more aggressive laser treatments and medium and deep chemical peels. And because it stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself without adding foreign substances to the body or taking anything away, Dermaroller Therapy is a natural process that has an excellent safety profile.

The Dermaroller can be used to treat all of the following:
– Wrinkles on the face and body – Cellulite
– Stretch marks; – Hair loss (in conjunction with topical applications)
– Acne (and other) scars

Advantages to Using a Dermaroller

  • Dermaroller treatments do not take a lot of time;
  • Skin needling does not visibly damage the skin;
  • Any part of the body can be treated with the Dermaroller;
  • All skin types can undergo micro needling without fear of hyper pigmentation;
  • Buying a Dermaroller is far cheaper than alternative treatment techniques;
  • Skin becomes naturally thicker and tighter with the increase of collagen;
  • Micro-needling dramatically increases the effectiveness of skin care products.

dermaroller-before_afterDue to its notable safety profile, Dermaroller Therapy is suitable for use on darker skins and for use during the summer months when other treatments are more risky due to the increased UV sensitivity they can induce. The treatment is fantastic for the repair of acne scars, for the regeneration of the face, neck, decollete and the back of the hands and for the treatment of stretch marks on thighs and tummies.

No two people are the same.
What works for one may have no effect on another; however, Dermarollers work very well in the vast majority of cases. Collagen formation will differ on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as age, needle length, diet and general wellbeing may all affect results.

If you want to restore that fresh-faced natural look to your face, and take advantage of our Special Dermaroller Offer just respond to this post or call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if Dermaroller Therapy is right for you!

Are You Committing any of these 7 Deadly Sins against Your Skin?

cracked_skinYour skin is the largest organ in your body, so it gets a lot of abuse. You especially put your skin at risk when you leave it unprotected outdoors or in settings that are environmentally risky. This is often a problem during the summer months when people tend to overindulge in just about everything.

If you’ve been committing any of these 7 deadly sins against your skin during the summer months, read on to learn more about an exciting solution!

1. Over-exposure:
Sun worshipping will only put us on the path to premature aging and skin cancer. If your skin looks wrinkly and is covered in brown spots, it’s probably from years of sun damage.

2. Tanning Beds:
Think a tanning bed is safer than being outside in the sun? Think again. Tanning beds give you a concentrated burst of ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B light. These rays cause skin aging and could triple your risk for melanoma skin cancer.

3. Smoking:
You know about the health risks of smoking, but did you know that smoking can also lead to wrinkles? It does what the sun does; it just does it inside by making the skin weak, tired, and listless looking.

4. Scrubbing Your Skin:
While harsh, aggressive scrubbing is not recommended since it irritates and potentially damages skin, often generating redness, hyper pigmentation, and excess capillaries, I strongly believe that a gentle scrub with a soft cloth and a quality cleanser, used once every 2-3 days (every day for oily skin) has great benefit for your skin. It gently removes dead cells and impurities, thus stimulating new cell growth and collagen formation. It will also improve the penetration of selected cosmetics through the skin.
5. Stress:
It’s not your imagination. Stress really does show in your skin.  It may also lower the skin’s ability to keep out harmful irritants and infections.

6. Over-eating:
When you gain a lot of weight, your skin stretches. If you lose the weight you’ll be left with saggy skin. If your skin isn’t elastic enough to bounce back, it can be incredibly difficult to tighten it up.

7. Not getting enough Sleep:
Many Americans aren’t getting the amount of sleep they need nightly.  Your skin rejuvenates while you’re sleeping and a lack of sleep makes your face look dull and listless.

Try Osmosis Skincare products! Osmosis Skincare offers a collection of facial products that are safe to use on even the most sensitive skin because they are infused with nutrients that are highly efficacious and yet non-inflammatory.
