Dermaroller Treatment Procedure

Dermaroller treatment mainly uses the mechanism of microneedling treatment for skin rejuvenation. Topical anesthesia or numbing cream is applied over the treated area. This helps to manage the discomfort associated with this procedure. Dermarolling is performed over the target skin area in vertical, horizontal, and oblique directions. Through tiny and fine needles of the dermaroller penetrates in the targeted skin area. A controlled injury causes superficial bleeding in the skin that leads to wound healing response in the body. It triggers growth hormones release, promotes skin rejuvenation (new skin cell production),  and stimulates new collagen formation in the skin. This treatment helps to break down the scar tissue through the needles, and then the wound healing mechanism and body’s immune system remove the dark patches and promote skin rejuvenation at the targeted area. The complete procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Saline pads are then used to wet the treated area.
