Miss Chantrey has worked in plastic surgery skin regeneration research for many years. She has published international articles (including The Lancet) and continues to speak at renowned international conferences. She has led European and International Clinical Trials in scar regeneration and wound healing. Her expertise in the subject of skin regeneration has attracted patients from around the world. She is frequently asked by the media (TV, radio and press) to give expert opinion on skin health and new techniques. All treatments performed by Miss Chantrey are to enhance and preserve the physical and mental wellbeing of her patients, and she aims to ensure optimum results to improve long-term self-esteem.
Miss Chantrey has been recognised as the key expert in Dermaroller™ techniques. She has been invited to demonstrate the technique many times including: Channel 4’s ‘Embarrassing Bodies’, ITV ‘Morning Surgery’ and for the media at The Members Club of The Ivy. Dermaroller™ is a safe, highly effective technique used to treat patients with a variety of skin conditions. It is excellent for scar repair, particularly those caused by acne, trauma, surgery or burns. It can also help with stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaroller™ is an excellent way to restore the skin’s natural scaffolding, boosting skin elasticity and lift.
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied one hour before to the areas that are to be treated. Miss Chantrey uses a variety of roller devices with micro-needles which create tiny punctures in the skin. This action activates the skin’s fibroblasts cells, which, in turn, stimulates collagen production. The aim is to encourage repair and rejuvenation of the skin for a fresher and smoother complexion, whilst dramatically reducing the appearance of scars and imperfections.
Patients undergoing this procedure can expect redness of the treated areas for up to 24 hours afterwards. To get the optimum results, a course of 3 to 4 sessions, 6 weeks apart, is recommended. The time left between sessions allows the skin cells to grow, boosts blood supply to the treated areas and maximises collagen production for a natural and more youthful look.
