Treatment Explained

Microneedle therapy allows for the controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism, by creating micro injuries in the skin, which induce new collagen synthesis to a controlled degree.

The concept of skin needling is based on skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis resulting in spectacularly smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

The needles of the dermaroller penetrate the top layers of the skin causing micro-injuries in the deeper layers. This triggers the natural wound healing response. As a result new collagen is formed to reduce wrinkle depth, increase skin elasticity and improve the appearance of scars and other skin flaws.

In addition to stimulating collagen growth, micro needling also creates channels through which any substance applied to the skin’s surface (known as topical application) can be absorbed far more easily. Therefore any topical application used with a dermaroller actually reaches the areas it is intended for. Studies suggest that using a skin needling system can boost the effectiveness of topical treatment by several hundred percent. For topical treatments SFMedica highly recommends the use of Fusion cocktails whose active ingredients maximize the benefits of skin needling.

Dr S. Foutsizoglou also recommends the Medik8 Titanium Dermastamp for enhanced precision for specific, localised skin problems and hard to reach areas. Dermastamps are available in 5 needle lengths, depending on the skin concern.

Dermastamp vs Dermaroller
Titanium Dermastamp Titanium Dermaroller
• Small, target areas of the body e.g. peri-oral area • Large areas of the body, e.g. neck and décolleté
• Lines and wrinkles, e.g. under eye • Generalised lines and wrinkles e.g. forehead
• Specific, distinctive scars e.g. acne pits • Large scarred area e.g. major accident/significant burn scars
• Isolated pigmentation marks e.g. age spots • Hyper-pigmentation areas

Dr S. Foutsizoglou was the first UK doctor who started using the revolutionary Motion Roller, a unique dermaroller that combines an integrated delivery device with 200 sterile surgical steel micro-needles for better penetration of the active ingredients, reduced treatment time and less discomfort.

MesoRecharge is a range of active sterile cocktails that can be used in conjunction with the for a variety of skin conditions including

  • Deep lines and wrinkles
  • Skin flaccidity
  • Cellulite
  • Localised fat
