Dermaroller Treatments and Courses

Dermaroller Skin Needling Treatments on Courses

Product: Skin Rolla Micro needling device also know as dermaoller.

Price per treatment=£40 (patients will also receive a skin care cream)

Treatment duration=30-50 minutes

Pre treatment: Localised numbing cream applied at least 25 minutes before the treatment.

Micro skin needling with the dermaroller course requires patients who would like facial rejuvenation or scar reduction treatments.

We use the Medik8 Derma roller since the needles are constructed with titanium. Titanium needles become less blunt during the procedure resulting in a minimally invasive treatment.

What can the dermaroller treat?

Acne Skin
Hyperpigmented Skin
Flaccid Skin
Mature Skin
Dehydrated Skin

Plus scar revision including acne scars and stretch marks. Multiple treatments will be required to achieve any results for any skin problems.

Dermaroller Skin Needling Treatment Information

Immediately after the Dermaroller  procedure the skin will be red, resembling moderate sunburn, as the skin naturally heals the redness will resolve.  The skin may remain red for three or four days after the Dermaroller treatment, although it is usual for it to subside within two days and many people are able to return to their normal activities the same or next day.  It is recommended that the use of soaps on the treated skin area is restricted until the redness subsides and where possible warm/tepid water and/or gentle skin cleansers are used for cleansing.

There is a small risk of infection of the treated skin area after the Dermaroller procedure although this is not expected to occur due to the sterility of the Dermaroller medical device and the fact that the epidermis of the skin is not removed as a result of the procedure.

The Dermaroller procedure can cause areas of bruising although this would not normally be expected to occur, the eye contour being most at risk.  Any bruising will be temporary.

There is a small risk that hyper-pigmentation of the skin can occur after the procedure, although this is not normally expected as the epidermis of the skin is not removed as a result of the procedure.  Failure to follow the sun expose and sun protection advice detailed below can increase this risk.

Will you refrain from intensive sun light exposure and/or from artificial UV exposure for a period of at least 2 weeks?

Will you use a topical sun protection product with an SPF 50 or higher and with stated UVA protection on a daily basis with regular applications for the same period?

These questions will include the following:
