Dermaroller is a facial treatment that uses a micro-needling device to stimulate the deepest layers of the skin for resurfacing and smoothing. It’s a highly effective way of repairing damaged skin by regenerating the body’s reproduction of elastin and collagen.
Dermaroller is effective in treating sun damage, acne scarring, fine lines, cellulite, scar tissue, hyper-pigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks. Different depths of microneedles can be used for different skin concerns to get the best result from the treatment.
Dermaroller can give you a fresher, smoother texture and a healthy, younger looking appearance. The skin naturally repairs itself after the treatment, stimulating new skin cells.
Dermaroller can help repair and improve skin conditions such as acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores and sun damage. The treatment will increase the elasticity and suppleness of the skin resulting in a softer, smoother texture and appearance.
As with all medical aesthetic treatments, it’s important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through all the risks and complications of the treatment.
You may experience slight bleeding during the treatment as the skin is being penetrated, as well as redness and sensitivity afterwards. As the skin continues to heal, it’s normal to experience flaking and peeling.
Dermaroller is suitable for most skin types and ages, and will help to completely resurface your skin. It’s ideal if you’d like a skin-tightening boost, or if you have deeper skin issues that can’t be enhanced with skincare products alone.
It’s important to note that if you are suffering with active acne, the treatment cannot be performed as it could spread bacteria from blemishes to other parts of the face. It’s also unsuitable for those with eczema and psoriasis.
Your aesthetic medical practitioner will guide you on whether you need a course of treatment or a single treatment depending on your skin concerns.

Dermaroller FAQsMore FAQs
We're ready when you are
Your first appointment
The initial step will be meeting with your friendly and knowledgeable surgeon assistant. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering dermaroller, whether it’s right for you, the likely cost and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our medical aesthetic practitioners.
Your treatment consultation
At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through your options with dermaroller and create a personal plan to ensure that you get the results you want. Your treatment plan will depend on the skin issues you’d like to address, and we’ll tell you what we can achieve.
You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our medical aesthetic practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to proceed, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.
On the day of your treatment you’ll have time to ask any last-minute questions before the treatment begins. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will begin by applying a numbing cream onto the face and neck, which will take around 30 minutes to take full effect. Then by working the dermaroller in a sequence across your face, the tiny microneedles will penetrate into the deeper layers.
You may experience some mild bleeding once the treatment is complete. Your practitioner will then apply a barrier cream to spark the skin’s repair mechanism. The tiny shafts made in your skin will repair themselves very quickly – often in the same day.
You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your dermaroller treatment has been completed. You’ll experience redness, sensitivity and mild soreness, but this will subside in the next couple of days. We recommend using SPF 50 after the treatment to protect your skin from UV rays.
High quality aftercare is at the heart of what we do, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. During your consultation, our fully qualified practitioners will provide you with aftercare advice and recommendations for ongoing treatments or skincare products that will help to prolong the results.
We recommend avoiding heat treatments such as saunas, steam rooms and hot baths until the redness has subsided. We strongly advise wearing SPF 50 daily in between treatments and initially treating it like sunburn, as there will be mild sensitivity. Makeup must not be applied for 24 hours and you should avoid touching the face to prevent the spread of bacteria.
