We perform microneedling with a microneedling roller. This is a small roller with 200 very fine needles of surgical quality.
It is one of the most innovative and effective procedures in the field of skin improvement and skin care. The fine needles in the roller stimulate the skin to produce collagen and elastin. The rolling creates microchannels. These pinch together and contribute to an increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a scientifically recognised and safe technique for skin improvement and rejuvenation. In our clinic in Amsterdam, we apply this technique with a microneedling roller. This is a small device with 200 very fine needles of surgical quality. Microneedling is one of the most innovative and effective partial treatments for stretch marks and wrinkles. The roller can also be deployed as a stand-alone for skin improvement. The fine needles in the roller stimulate the skin to produce collagen and elastin. The rolling creates microchannels. These pinch together and contribute to an increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin. Microneedling is virtually painless, takes only a few minutes, and your upper skin remains intact. The treatment can be repeated indefinitely.
At Kliniek Dokter Frodo, microneedling is used for or against:
- As part of our combination therapy for stretch marks
- Facial skin improvement for wrinkles
The effect of microneedling
Microneedling is not an instalook treatment, and requires a bit more patience than, for example, an Angel lift or Liquid Facelift. However, after rolling a few times, you can already notice your skin getting stronger and tighter, and its blood flow improving. After two or three months, the effects of microneedling truly become visible:
- Fading wrinkles
- Tighter skin
- Scar improvement
- Reduction and/or removal of pigmentation or age spots
- Reduction of Rosacea
- Stretch mark improvement
Types & use of microneedling
There are various brands and types of microneedling rollers. In Kliniek Dokter Frodo, we use rollers with longer needles than the so-called home rollers. The microneedling treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia. The roller we use at Kliniek Dokter Frodo is specially designed for us. If you wish, we also have a ‘home roller’ available that was specially designed for us, with which you can:
- Can roll at home twice a week for one year for a younger skin
- Absorb creams up to 85% rather than 0.5%
- Achieve good results in the long term
