The Dermaroller is a new medical procedure that improves skin texture. It stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, with this process continuing for many months after the procedure. *Dramatic results can often be seen in as little as one week after the procedure.
The Dermaroller can be used anywhere on the body and improves both acne scarring and surgical scars, reduces pore size, and can be used to treat sun damage including pigmentation spots and wrinkles.
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) with the Dermaroller uses a roller with minute needles to penetrate the skin, stimulating new collagen formation and improving skin texture. In contrast to other techniques such as deep peels and CO2 laser resurfacing or dermabrasion, this process does not damage or peel the epidermis. The Dermaroller can be safely used on all skin types and skin colours, and there is little chance of pigmentation changes as the pigment cells in the skin are left intact.
Using a Dermaroller also increases the effectiveness of your skin care products. *Only about 0.3% of cosmeceutical products such as Vitamin A (retinol) are absorbed through the surface of your skin – use of the Dermaroller increases the penetration by up to 200 times!
*Dr Cope recommends using the home Dermaroller,which significantly increases the effectiveness of your normal skin care regime, giving additional benefit from products such as Vitamin A, alpha-hydroxy acids, antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Copper and Manganese.
