What is Dermal Rolling?
Dermal Rolling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). Dermal Rolling induces micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate self-repair through new collagen synthesis. Collagen synthesis results in younger, smoother, and firmer looking skin.
What does Dermal Rolling treat?
At Your Wellness Center, the providers use dermal rolling to decrease the appearance of cellulite on thighs.
How does the Dermal Rolling treatment work?
Dermal Rolling is most commonly used on the outer thighs and the back of the thighs to treat cellulite. The first step of Dermal Rolling is to apply a layer of a topical numbing gel to the skin to decrease discomfort from the procedure. The Dermal Rolling system is a handheld device with small needles on the head that roll over the skin. The device is rolled back and forth across the treatment area multiple times to ensure the entire treatment area has been covered. Some treatment areas require more passes than other areas, therefore requiring more treatment time. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes.
What does the treatment feel like?
By using topical numbing gel, the procedure is very tolerable. Some describe the procedure as “tiny pricks” on the skin while others describe the procedure as painless.
What results can I expect?
After the procedure, the skin will appear red and flushed. There may pinpoint bleeding in areas. The redness will decrease significantly in a few hours after the treatment and will almost be completely done in 24 hours. Skin tightness and mild sensitivity to the touch may also occur. After 72 hours, the skin will return to normal or near normal appearance. Over the next 6 months, collagen production continues improving the appearance of the skin.
Will I need more than one treatment?
It is recommended for the majority of patients to have 2-3 treatments done over 1-2 months. A small group of patients may need additional treatments depending on the extent of cellulite. Your provider will inform you of your individualized treatment plan.
