What is Dermaroller?
Do you have sun-damaged or acne-scarred skin? Would you like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or stretch marks? Then try a Dermaroller treatment for smoother, brighter, and more youthful skin.
Dermaroller (also known as micro-needling) can be used to treat face and body and provides an effective way to reduce the visibility of lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and sun damage*. It is a well-known, hugely popular treatment that gives outstanding results within four to six weeks. Better still, your skin will continue to improve over the months that follow!

Summary Of Your Treatment
Results may vary*
How many treatments will I need?
We generally recommend a course of three treatments (roughly one treatment every six weeks).
What is it used for?
The Dermaroller procedure can help improve the appearance of stretch marks (anywhere on the body), wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and acne scars.
What does the Dermaroller treatment involve?
To begin with, your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic cream to numb your skin before treatment commences. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the Dermaroller will be rolled over your skin, puncturing it with thousands of tiny micro-needles. By causing mild damage to your skin in this way, we trigger a healing process that rejuvenates the skin, encourages collagen production, and reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and imperfections.
Does it hurt?
Not very much – the anaesthetic helps to minimise any discomfort caused by the micro-needles.
How long will it take?
One Dermaroller session lasts for around 40 minutes, although this may vary depending on which part of your body we treat. For example, a hand or neckline treatment will take less time than a facial treatment.
Who is this procedure suitable for?
Dermaroller is suitable for all skin types. However, it can cause sensitive skin to become irritated, so it may not be appropriate for people who suffer from allergies. Before any treatment, you will be given the opportunity to consult with a member of the team; you can discuss any concerns you may have during this session.
All possible side effects and contraindications will be discussed at your face to face consultation.
