Microneedling with dermaroller is a new treatment modality for the treatment of scars, especially acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and for facial rejuvenation. It is a simple and relatively cheap modality that also can be used for transdermal drug delivery.
Benefits of Microneeding
- Reduces fine & deep wrinkles
- Repairs visible scars
- Reverse sun damage & pigmentation
- Helps aging skin / increase collagen
- Shrinks and refines pores
- Hair regeneration
During treatment, fine needles puncture the outer layer of the skin and create microconduits (holes) without damaging the epidermis. Microneedling leads to the release of growth factors which stimulate the formation of new collagen (natural collagen) and elastin in the uppermost layer of the skin. In addition, new capillaries are formed-this neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars.
