Dermastamp is a treatment using 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 procedures are called Scar Reduction Therapy (SRT) & Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
Dermaroller has success in CIT (collagen induction therapy) and SRT (scar reduction therapy), safely stimulating skin with minimal downtime. Medical dermaroller treatments have had incredible results for scarring, pigmentation and ageing skin. A single Dermaroller treatment has been shown to increase collagen production by up to 1000%.
HOW THE DERMASTAMP WORKS
The Collagen-Induction-Therapy (CIT) with the needling device called Dermastamp™ (automated) or Dermaroller™ (hand-held) is a fairly new procedure for the stimulation of new collagen fibres and other skin cells. In contrary to all ablative techniques such as acid peels or laser it does not damage the skin nor is the epidermis removed. The mechanism of action of the CIT remains largely unknown. If a CIT is performed lege artis I hypothesize that the usual release of growth factors from thrombocytes only play a minor or no role at all.
