Dermal Rollering is the most advance treatment to improve acne scaring, fne lines, overall skin health, open pores, skin tightening and vitality. When rollering the skin we are stimulating Type 1 collagen, the same soft dewy collagen that we are born with. Only Dermal Rollering can make this Type 1 collagen. The treatment breaks down old collagen fbres and makes way for new collagen and elastin fbres to born. The results can take 3-6 months. At Tessa Stevens we have been offering Dermal Rolling for 8 years and understand that every clients journey is different. A consultation will ensure we are able to put together the most bespoke program for your needs.
Cosmetic and Medical
There are various needle sizes and the size of the needle used will be determined by where and how it is to be used. A cosmetic roller that you are able to use yourself at home, or use in a facial, will be either a 0.2mm, 0.3mm or 0.5mm. The depth of the needle affects which cells are treated and the outcome of the treatment, therefore, a trained skin care specialist can advise you on which roller to start with and how to prepare your skin correctly at home for four weeks before treatment begins. Optimum results can only be achieved using any roller where there is good cell health. A good result will be achieved through the use of good topical nutrients and taking the correct multivitamins
A full and in-depth consultation must be carried out prior to having this treatment. The topical anaesthetic cream which is to be used in the treatment must be patch tested on your skin during this consultation to ensure your skin is suitable for treatment. If you have a darker skin (skin types 4-6) we would also advise having a small patch test using the roller.
Consultation and patch test
Face and body
Dermal roller is a treatment where the therapist rollers over the skin creating tiny micro channels in the skin, which in tune allow the penetration of ingredients to the dermal level and also stimulating the fibroblast cell which makes collagen and elastin fibres. This treatment stimulates type 1 collagen, which is the young, dewy, soft and flexible collagen that we are born with.
As long as your skin is not breaking out and you have had a patch test and a full consultation to ensure you are able to have this treatment, then most people can go ahead with this treatment.
Anyone who wants to promote more elasticity in the skin, scaring on the face and body, fine and deep lines, improve overall skin tone on the face and body, stretch marks and loose skin.
A consultation and treatment plan of your course and aftercare will all be explained to you.
On the day of treatment, we will prepare your skin and a topical anesthetic will be applied. This will be left on for 45 mins. Once your skin is fully numb, we will then begin the dermal rollering. If you are having your face treated then after the rollering we will do a ‘mini’ facial using a peptide serum, followed by a cooling mask and LED light treatment.
It should feel very numb after the topical anaesthetic; some clients feel a little scratching and soreness after. As the treatment finishes with a cooling mask and LED, it helps to settle down any soreness you may feel.
Yes, you will be okay, if the skin has any redness you can cover it immediately with clean mineral make up or 24hours after with other make-up.
