Dermaroller or Micro-needling or Collagen induction therapy is used for treating Acne scars, Wrinkles, Stretch marks, hair loss, pigmentation etc , it is a simple OP procedure with no side effects and gives added benefit of skin rejuvenation . A session takes only 15 minutes and usually full treatment require 3 sessions approximately 6 weeks apart.
After a session your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed,
new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
Professional skin needling done by a Dermatologist is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures. Unlike chemical peels, Dermabrasion and Laser treatments, skin needling causes minimal damage to the skin.

What is the procedure used for?
Medical practitioners discovered that controlled mild injury to the skin results in it appearing healthier and smoother when it regrows. The Dermaroller was developed to provide a controlled level of damage to the skin using tiny little needles, therefore encouraging it to grow back stronger and more aesthetically pleasing. It has been proven that Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ can significantly improve the appearance of:
• Medium acne scars
• Aged and sun damaged skin
• Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
• Stretch marks
Who is the treatment suitable for?
You will need to book in for a consultation with one of our friendly team to see if you are suitable for the Dermaroller treatment. We are experts in skincare and can choose from a range of procedures to find one that fits in with your expectations and your budget.
What happens during the procedure?
Your therapist will cleanse your skin ready for the dermaroller and apply a topical anaesthetic. She will then roll the Dermaroller tool over your skin in controlled motions which will puncture your skin in columns of around 1.5mm in depth. Each column will close quickly – often within 24 hours. In some cases you may be referred to Doctor Maini or our nurse, Pauline, who are trained to use a deeper depth of needle on the Dermaroller.
What are the side effects or risks?
Depending on the area being treated and the depth of the needle, your side effects may range from mild to more moderate. They include:
• Sore skin
• Warm/tight skin
• Sensitive skin
• Small risk of infection
What results can I typically expect?
After the procedure your skin starts to regenerate and repair itself below the surface. New collagen and skin cells are formed and blood to the area is increased, and within around six weeks you’ll be able to see the first stage of results. Over the months that follow your skin will constantly improve to give you a natural and long-lasting result.
Depending on what you are having the Dermaroller treatment for, you will need to have between 3 and 5 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
You may look and feel as though you have sunburn, so we recommend:
• A thorough hand-washing regime before touching the area
• Avoiding makeup and skincare products for at least 24 hours
• Avoiding the sun on the area while it heals
• Avoiding fake tan products before and after your procedure
