The quest to restore youthfulness and vitality to our appearance is almost as old as time itself, with centuries of different treatments and breakthroughs all promising the fabled ‘fountain of youth’ or the secret to eternal beauty. But the real key to achieving a refreshed and revitalised look for your skin is its ability to generate fresh collagen and elastin. Collagen gives the skin its strength, while elastin provides the skin with its youthfulness and ability to bounce back into shape. Our bodies generally stop production of these two proteins as we reach our thirties, resulting in the skin’s appearance lacking volume and vitality. Thankfully with non-surgical treatment options like micro needling skin rejuvenation and dermaroller therapy, you can rest assured that Mole Check Clinic on St Kilda Rd in Melbourne has the services to accommodate your needs.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling and micro needling skin rejuvenation, dermaroller treatment uses a stainless titanium derma roller (most commonly the Dermapen 4 device) to make thousands of microscopic punctures in the areas of the skin that are being targeted for treatment. The action of the needles creating the punctures as it’s rolled over the skin promotes the generation of new collagen, which aides significantly in the repair or filling in of wrinkles, mild acne scars and stretch marks. Each person responds differently to dermaroller skin needling; some may experience a significant reduction in the physical signs of scarring, while others may see their scars or wrinkles disappear completely.
With so many skin needling devices on the market, here at Mole Check clinic we’re proud to stand behind the Dermapen 4 dermaroller pen. The device comes with a multitude of features that ultimately reward you with the benefits. Among those features are:
The Dermapen 4 offers a wealth of additional features to make micro needling a breeze, including Bluetooth connectivity, automatic updates and more.
Here are some of the more common questions we receive regarding micro needling with the Dermapen 4 and skin needling in general.
At Mole Check Clinic, we provide dermaroller therapy for a variety of conditions. Come to us when you need dermaroller treatment for acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and more.
The answer to this largely depends on what kind of treatment you’re seeking.
Typically, you will begin to see results after the first dermaroller treatment, however the most significant results will become most obvious after 3 to 6 treatments ? as long as sessions remain spaced 2 to 8 weeks apart.
While you may experience some redness in the treated area of your skin for 12 to 48 hours, generally there is no further downtime needed following micro skin needling.
