Dermal Needling (or rolling) is quickly becoming the skin rejuvenation modality of choice for many aware aesthetic skin care practitioners around the world.  In the face of so many high profile modalities, such as lasers and other micro-injury techniques that can deliver less than optimal results, dermal needling is providing, in many cases, equal or better results with less cost and effort.

The key to needling is the healing response that the process stimulates.  
Until recently, the keratinocyte, which was considered less important than the fibroblast in creating healthy skin, was abused shamelessly with a variety of ablative treatments.  
New research, however, suggests the humble keratinocyte is responsible for releasing several key growth factors that conduct the orchestra of cells beneath it to facilitate ideal skin rejuvenation.

Find out why Dermal Needling is the only rejuvenation treatment that maximizes 
penetration of essential cell nutrients and maximizes release of growth factors associated with the positive aspects of wound healing simultaneously.  
Discover why
Dermal Needling eliminates the risk of melanocyte heat injury and actually optimizes cell function, making it the ideal treatment for all skin types.

This book provides a concise guide to this exceptional modality, explaining everything a practitioner needs to know about the how’s, why’s, and when’s 
of dermal needling.

Author Dr Lance Setterfield, Medical Director of Acacia Dermacare in Victoria, Canada, was one of the early adopters of this treatment modality and consequently has many years of experience to share. He has vast experience with all forms of skin rejuvenation modalities and conducted many years of research and clinical trials to evaluate the effectiveness of  these modalities in specific situations.
Dr Setterfield believes optimizing skin health through regulating cell function is an attainable goal.  He specializes in "ideal" skin rejuvenation treatment programs that protect the epidermis, preserve the dermal papillae, optimize cell function, break down scar tissue and rebuild the extracellular matrix with normal collagen, as opposed to scar tissue. 

"Anyone serious about understanding skin rejuvenation will find the 
content of this book a comprehensive source of valuable information.  
It is perhaps the “bible” of dermal needling and cosmetic rolling.
