My experience with the Dermaroller treatment in 3 words.. Love, love, love!
The Dermaroller treatment is an effective method to reduce and minimalize, a number of ailments on the skin that include of; Sun Damage, Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Stretch Marks. For me, I was interested in having the Dermaroller to help with the dark pigmentation I had on my cheeks because of a previous bout of acne. Yes, I was bad and picked my pimples. Something my adult self-wishes I learned in my teenage years, rather than suffering the consequences now.
A number of my friends suggested to have a Dermaroller treatment to help me with my problem skin. I have a trip planned to Los Angles for the Festive period and I was hoping that I could spend the mornings in the sunshine rather than worrying about applying a base of foundation and hoping the sun would not clog my pours underneath the thick layer of makeup. But, what can I do now until then to help me? Step in Dermaroller Therapy.
Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy is a safe form of advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. Exactly what I want! By providing a controlled physical stimulation of the skin with the Dermaroller it initiate’s the natural skin regeneration and repair process that can help improve and smooth scarring.
However, even though the treatment sounds a god send, I held back from booking the treatment. The thought of hundreds of needles going through my skin, was enough to bring me to tears and I had not even picked up the phone to book the appointment. What am I going to be like when I do go? My threshold for pain is not the best, and watching countless YouTube videos of other men and women who had it done, was bringing tears to my eyes. However, the results of their treatments were often miraculous. The before and after of their skin was completely surprising, as it goes against what my thought of ‘treating problem skin was about.’ Needling the skin, I thought would just aggravate my skin? I was wrong.
After finally plucking up the courage to go ahead with Dermaroller Therapy, I was recommended to go to HB Health of Knightsbridge to have my treatment. An innovative clinic that had trained professional’s that will make me feel at ease. What more can I ask for.
After an initial consultation with my therapist Sam at HB Knightsbridge, about the background of my skin and what I wanted to achieve from the treatment. I laid back, and prayed for the best.
The pain was actually not as bad as I thought. It was more of a scratching feel. After 15 minutes, it was over, and I sat back whilst my skin was cleaned and soothed. I sat up and looked in the mirror, it was a slight redness to my skin, nothing to major. I was told to not apply any makeup to my skin for at least 24 hours until my skin settled.
The results were great! My scarring did improve and I am booked in to have 2 more treatments which was recommended to me by the therapist to help me achieve optimal results. However, so far so good and I have already packed a nice tinted moisturiser for my trip to La La Land. Thank you, HB Health of Knightsbridge
