Dermaroller Therapy provides advanced medical grade micro-needling of the skin, a procedure that stimulates the dermis to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

Dermaroller provides natural skin regeneration and scar repair therapy.

Dermaroller Therapy can significantly improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Aged and sun damaged skin
  • Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks

Dermaroller Therapy is only available from trained medical practitioners and authorised clinics. Do not accept substitutes; only have Dermaroller Therapy carried out by a trained medical practitioner at an authorised clinic, such as the Aesthetic Beauty Centre, using genuine Dermaroller medical devices.

Dermaroller Procedure

Your practitioner will use a Dermaroller medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly - often in the same day.

Your practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 - 30 minutes for the Dermaroller Therapy procedure.

After Dermaroller Therapy 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.

Your practitioner will normally recommend that your treatment regime consists of a series of three procedures with approximately 4-6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary to have up to five procedures.

Dermaroller Therapy Post-procedure skincare

Immediately after your treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.
Your practitioner may apply cream after the procedure to help soothe and calm the skin, continue to use until the redness has cleared.

Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and dry gently, always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area. It is recommended that make up is not applied for 12 hours after the procedure.

If you will be in daylight immediately after the procedure apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a SPF50.

Qualified doctors/nurses will discuss the procedure before any treatment, explaining any possible side effects.
