3D-Skinmed Dermaroller with Radio Frequency

This treatment allows the practitioner to use Radio Frequency with a Derma roller to cause heat trauma to the Dermis as well as the trauma caused by thousands of micro punctures to the Epidermis in the same treatment. The 3D-dermaroller has 480 micro-needles on the small head and 960 on the large head, compared to around 192 on a Genuine Derma roller. The trauma to the Epidermis & Dermis created will stimulate Type 3 collagen, encouraging cell regeneration and renewal.

The treatment may be followed with 3D-skinmed Impact. This is an Acoustic wave using Ultrasound energy to create movement and changes within the skin. This acoustic wave increases the Trans epidermal delivery of cosmeceutical products and because of the thousands of micro needle punctures to the surface it is an ideal time to further use the Impact technology. The products are more deeply absorbed and the benefits of the ingredients are greater within the skin.

FAQs about 3D-Skinmed Dermaroller with Radio Frequency

▾   Is the 3D-dermaroller treatment painful?

A topical cream is applied to numb the area around 30 minutes before the treatment is carried out, there may be slight discomfort during the procedure.

▾   What can you treat with the 3D-dermaroller?

The treatment works well on acne scarring, pitted skin, ageing skin, pigmented skin or stretch marks. Results depend on the severity of the condition. The face, neck, décolleté are popular areas to treat, but the 3D-dermaroller could also be used to treat ageing skin on the backs of the hands or stretch marks on other parts of the body. If you are unsure then this can be addressed in the consultation for the treatment.

▾   How many treatments will I need?

Generally a course of 3-6 treatments are needed to get the best results. For treatments such as those on deeper acne scarring, pitted skin or stretch marks treatment are normally carried out at 6 weekly intervals as more holes are created so there is a longer recovery period, and these issues generally take longer to see overall results. For general skin rejuvenation the treatments are at 3-5 weekly intervals.

▾   Will I be able to go back to work after treatment?

The skin will appear very red after treatment and may feel sensitive, if an area such as the décolleté was being treated then this could be covered and you may return to work. You are not able to apply make up to the face for 12 hours after the procedure so you may not wish to return to work until the skin had returned to normal. This normally happens within 12-24 hours.

▾   What is the aftercare advice?

Always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area, the holes remain open for several hours post treatment and may give rise to infection from non sterile contact.

Use a soothing cleanser on facial area for following 48 hours, with tepid water and dry gently. The skin may feel drier than normal post treatment. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin balance. No make up to be applied for 12 hours post treatment. Make sure the area is covered with an SPF 30 to protect the skin.

No active skincare such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Retinol (Vitamin A) or Vitamin C should be used for at least 2 days post treatment.

▾   Will there be much blood?

The shape of the 3D-dermaroller micro needles mean that there is very little blood during or post treatment.
