Skin Rejuvenation with Dermaroller
Natural Skin Regeneration & Scar Repair
SAYING goodbye to lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks is easier than ever thanks to an exciting non-surgical skin regeneration procedure that has landed in the UK. Genuine Dermaroller Therapy uses tiny micro-medical needles on the skin encouraging regeneration and repair, leaving you with smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Genuine Dermaroller Therapy offers amazing results without the inconvenient down time that comes with more aggressive Laser treatments and medium and deep Chemical Peels. And because it stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself without adding foreign substances to the body or taking anything away, Genuine Dermaroller Therapy is a natural process which has an excellent safety profile when used by trained medical aesthetic practitioners. Due to its notable safety profile, Genuine Dermaroller Therapy is suitable for use on darker skins and for use during the summer months when other treatments are more risky due to the increased UV sensitivity they can induce. The treatment is fantastic for the repair of acne scars, for the regeneration of the face, neck, dcollet and the back of the hands and for the treatment of stretch marks on thighs and tummies.
