Dermal rolling, or skin needling, is a useful and successful tool for treating a number of skin ailments. Used in combination with tried and tested BiON skin care products, it can have a significant effect on the health and overall appearance of the skin with minimal downtime and discomfort. Dermal rolling stimulates the wound healing process to produce new collagen and elastin and therefore, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and reverses the signs of aging and photo damaged skin.
Dermal rolling is also beneficial in diminishing scars, including acne scars and stretch marks. By allowing active ingredients to be introduced deeper into the epidermis skin tissue, we achieve an 80% higher absorption rate for faster and greater results. Rolling alone will deliver limited results if it is not combined with the proper topical nutrients for the cell to utilize.
Clinical studies have shown that dermal rolling is more effective than ablative laser resurfacing and just as effective as non-ablative treatments like CO2 lasers in stimulating collagen and elastin production.
NOTE: Lasers generate a fibrosis response that promote scar collagen (thick, parallel orientated bundles), while dermal rolling results in increased TGF-B3, FGF-7and EGF which promotes natural collagen with scarless wound healing.
