As the treatment is painful, an anaesthetising cream is applied before the treatment.
Each dermaroller is sterile and for single use only, and is passed over the face in several directions.
The tiny needles penetrate down to the papillary dermis ( the upper part of the dermis ), while home dermaroller kits do not reach this deep. This leads to light bleeding, but the tiny holes created in the skin will close the same day.
A nourishing, revitalising mask is applied immediately afterwards. This has been specifically designed for this treatment, and penetrates down to the required depth of the skin. Ice is then applied to the skin to reduce the resulting sensations of tightness and heat.
The needling should be repeated after a few months, and has a cumulative effect as part of a global skin rejuvenation programme, alongside hyaluronic acid and laser treatments.
For best results, 3-4 sessions, at a rhythm of one session every six weeks, are necessary. After the first set of 3 sessions, the treatment is stopped for 3 months, and then the treatment pattern can begin again.
