Skin Needling/Dermal Rolling (CIT)

Using no chemicals, Skin Needling or Derma Rolling, (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is highly effective as the underlying action of this treatment is simply stimulating a natural reaction in your skin to produce more of its own collagen and elastin.

Skin Needling is our first choice when treating scarring, including acne scaring.

Skin Needling has been proven to:

  • Smooth wrinkles and soften lines
  • Improve skin texture
  • Treat scars
  • Improve depressed acne scarring
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks
  • Fill old surgical scars
  • Improve chicken pox scars

at an affordable cost, with minimal pain, risk and down time.

Skin needling or dermal rolling works on the same principle as procedures such as deep chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser re-surfacing and fractional radio-frequency resurfacing, by creating a controlled inflammation in the skin which stimulates  new collagen growth. However skin rolling is naturally a much more economical procedure often than these procedures and the healing period is often shorter.

It can be used on all areas of the face, neck and body.

Is it painful?

A prescription strength numbing cream is applied hour prior to your procedure which makes the medical grade skin rolling much more comfortable.

We pride ourselves at Embellish You on making your experience as pain free and comfortable as possible.

What downtime is there with skin needling?

Performed in a medical clinical setting to deliver optimal results, there is often significant redness on the day of the treatment. The next day, there is often some residual redness of the skin however this can usually be well camouflaged with make-up. The skin will feel somewhat warm for a day or two and will also feel slightly rough. Bruising is unusual. Usually people resume their normal activities the day after their procedure.

How many treatments should I have?

To revitalize and rejuvenate your skin and also treat scarring, we recommend for best results a Dermapen series of 4-6 treatments, spaced out at 4 week intervals.

What results will I get with the treatments?

You will notice in the short-term a softening of the skin and a subtle fresh look to the skin. However the real results with respect to collagen stimulation take at least three months to begin because neo-collagenesis or the laying down of new collagen in the skin only begins at three months and continues for approximately a year thereafter.  The results take time but they are worth waiting for.

Will it help with scarring?

Skin Needling also perforates and softens fibrous scar tissue, enabling the deposition of new collagen. The new collagen fills depressed scars from the bottom up, lifting the scars so that they are more level with the surrounding skin.

Can I do it at home?

Absolutely. The more your collagen is stimulated, the better the results in revitalising your skin, improving fine lines and wrinkles or improving scars or stretch marks.

Home rollering can also help penetration of cosmeceutical skin care agents deeper into your skin to improve their impact on your skin health.

The principle behind the dermal needling home roller is that it helps to increase penetration of vitamins and other active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid in to the skin. When applied to the surface of the skin in conjunction with skin rollering, it creates microchannels into the outer layer of the skin and the skincare products can reach into the depths of the skin far more effectively than by simply applying the products to the surface of the skin.
