What is the Dermarstamp?
The Dermarstamp is a cylindrical shaped drum studded with very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue & to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis).
The Dermastamp improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation. It reduces disfiguring scars & acne scars, stimulates new collagen fibres, improves blood supply and harmonises pigmentation.
Is it safe?
There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.
It is imperative that you ensure the people treating you are highly trained professionals, and that you are getting the genuine Dermarstamp treatment. Don’t be afraid to ask.
Dermarstamp is the first ‘Transdermal Needle Roller’ – TGA listed in Australia as a Class IIa device. Do not be fooled by other, substandard devices claiming to be similar. Be sure you are getting the genuine Dermarstamp.
We realise this is a lot of information to take in. The best thing to do if you’re interested is to call our capable staff at Beaute to arrange a skin consultation and a chat to see if Dermarstamp is right for you.
How does the Dermarstamp work?
In contrast to all ablative techniques like Lasers and Fractional Laser treatments, the Dermarstamp stimulates new tissue formation – it acts constructively and the skin remains intact. The skin does not get damaged (unlike other needling devices) and therefore will not go into a wound healing response. The Dermarstamp significantly improves atrophic scars & improves skin texture.
What happens during the procedure?
We clean the skin and numb it with a numbing cream so it should not hurt at all. The skin is then thoroughly needled in such a way that each skin part is needled about 15 to 20 times. An even flushing across the skin will indicate the procedure has been completed perfectly.
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 24hours on average, but can last longer depending on skin type and condition being treated. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals, peptides or hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sun screen. We also recommend the use of mineral makeup to help with the healing.
This treatment does not use heat, and so can be performed on any skin colour. There is no risk at all of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
