DERMAROLLER THERAPY or MEDICAL SKIN NEEDLING is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. It is one of the most popular skin renewal technique that restores healthy youthful appearance of the  skin with minimal or zero downtime. The procedure is designed to trigger new collagen production and elastin in the skin, leading to brighter, healthier, smoother and younger looking skin.   It is also a natural Scar Repair Therapy Treatment.

Significantly improves the appearance of:

  • Facial, Decollete lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tightening and pore reduction
  • Acne scars
  • Aged and Sun Damaged skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Hands rejuvenation 

How does the Dermaroller treatment Work? 

Skin Needling with a Dermaroller produces hundreds of tiny dermal injuries, each one triggering normal healing response within the skin.  Successive treatments will build new collagen progressively, filling in deep lines and depressed scars.

What will happen during the treatment?

The area to be treated is cleansed and topical anaesthetic is applied to make the procedure comfortable.  Once the skin is numbed, the Dermaroller is rolled over the skin to puncture the outmost layer and cause hundreds of tiny dermal injuries.  These minute injuries produce normal healing response which starts the moment the tissue is injured.  The treated area turns pink/red immediately after the treatment which can last for a few hours.  Healing time is short and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light.

What results can I expect?

After a Dermaroller Therapy treatment, the body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin.  This takes time as new collagen and elastin is formed.  New skin cells are regenerated and blood supply is enhanced.  It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair can be seen.  Dermaroller Treatments with combined use of correct professional skincare products will encourage skin regeneration over the following months, providing you with gradual and long lasting result.

How many treatments are needed?

All clients will require multiple sessions usually three to six procedures depending on the area of concern with 6-8 weeks interval.

Are there any side effects?

Immediately after the treatment, the skin will look moderately sunburned.  The skin may feel warm and tighter than usual.  This will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.  Client may be able to apply light makeup the next day. 

Anyone with the following should avoid this treatment? 

  • Skin cancer
  • Severe Acne or Herpes
  • allergic to local anaesthetic
  • chronic skin disorders
  • chemotherapy, radiotherapy or high doses of corticosteroids
  • kelloid scarring

How much does it cost?

The cost per treatment for the face starts from £120.  The price for Dermaroller Therapy treatment for stretch marks on the body will depend on the size of the area to be treated.
