A Dermaroller™ is a device used for advanced skin needling.
This procedure stimulates your skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely to create brighter, healthier, smoother and younger-looking skin.
Microneedling is used to reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. This is a versatile treatment and can be used almost anywhere on the body.
What is Microneedling treatment designed 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
Benefits of Microneedling
- Encourages collagen production
- Non-invasive treatment
- Quick recovery time
- Versatile treatment
What happens during Microneedling treatment?
Your Clinician 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.
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

When can I go out after the Microneedling treatment?
Expect to be red for 12 -48 hours depending on the strength of the treatment.
Will Microneedling set off my Acne?
No, it is very unlikely to do this.
I have just had Roaccutane for acne, can I have this Microneedling treatment?
No. We advise that you wait for 3-6 months but our trained clinicians will be able to give you the advice you need. It is said that treating with ANY facial treatment very close to Roaccutane use can cause quite severe redness and swelling. This does not appear to be strictly true, but it is best avoided and indeed is contraindicated in the case of Dermaroller.
I have a pink thick scar after Surgery- will this Microneedling treatment help?
We are advised that Dermaroller™, is not to be used for the treatment of hypertrophic surgical scars or scarring due to injury/ burns. In such situations, we recommend the Fraxel laser, with which we get excellent results, even after 1-2 treatments.
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 Microneedling treatment for, you will need to have between 3 and 5 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
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

You will need to book in for a consultation with one of our friendly team to see if you are suitable for the Microneedling 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.
