It’s never too late… to tackle acne

Acne is a condition that many associate with teenagers and expect to go away as we reach adulthood. However, that is not always the case, it can cause misery for patients well into their 20′s and 30′s. Even if, with the help of medication or natural hormone changes, the acne does clear up; it can leave the skin looking ravaged with unsightly acne scars, redness and blemishes.

Help is at hand. The “multi-talented” Dermaroller is a non-surgical skin needling treatment that can help on a wide variety of issues, including acne. By stimulating the skin to regenerate itself naturally, brighter, softer skin starts to show through. Symptoms of acne can be dramatically reduced, whereas for those patients who have recovered from acne yet suffer it’s scars, an improvement in complexion and skin texture can be expected.

Dermaroller treatments are available all over the world, with many beauty clinics in the UK offering it as a skin treatment.

The wonder of the Dermaroller treatment is that it’s great for many different but common problems, such as cellulite, pores, acne, and wrinkles. It’s also great as an anti-ageing treatment as well.

How does it work?

By rolling the Dermaroller over the skin, tiny needles penetrate it, puncturing the skin’s surface with miniscule pins. As a result of this, creams and treatments are absorbed deep into the skin, while the skin’s self repair mechanism triggers.

The treatment is fairly pain-free too, as an anaesthetic cream is used to numb the area.

Over time, skin consequently looks fresher and is rejuvenated, often helper a person to look younger, too.

With a very short recovery time of just one day in most cases, it’s an effective non-surgical treatment that doesn’t break the bank.

For patients in the Chelsea, Knightsbridge or London area, Dr Barbara Kubicka offers Dermaroller as a speciality in her new Belgravia clinic, based on West Halkin Street.

Treatment costs from £350 per session. Three sessions are generally needed, with a break of six weeks between each one.

This can of course vary, depending on why it is that you’ve opted for the Dermaroller treatment. For example, if used to eradicate scars, or as a type of acne treatment, then up to five sessions can be needed before results start to show.

Taking just 20-30 minutes, the procedure is over in no time, and the results definitely seem to be worth the lengthy process.
