Collagen is the component in the skin that gives it bounce and elasticity but as we age production of this protein slows down so the skin can start to sag and wrinkle. Whilst many topical lotions available in stores contain collagen for an anti-aging effect, at the London Cosmetic Skin Clinic can help your skin to create its own collagen and heal itself using the latest electronic Derma roller pen or Micro- needling treatment. The electronic Derma roller pen delivered more precise and effective treatment than the manual derma roller.
The Micro-needling treatment has been around since the 1990s and involves using a handheld barrel of super fine needles (Derma roller) to pierce the skin and encourage it to start its natural healing process. The skin may be red and slightly sore straight after treatment so we advise that you just use tepid water on it and will give full aftercare advice. As it encourages your skin to heal itself, the results aren’t instant and you may need to have several sessions, each spread apart to allow the skin to recover.
As well as helping to reverse the appearance of aging, our derma roller treatments can help to erase acne scars and stretch marks and can be used practically anywhere on the body. There are some copycat derma roller appliances available on the internet but these are inferior so can scratch and damage the skin and can even lead to infections. We have delivered great results to thousands of patients and all without the use of harsh chemicals or invasive procedures.
