Skin Micro-Needling (DermaRoller)

Micro-needling is the latest trend in the quest to stay youthful, it’s a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

Micro-needling can significantly improve the appearance of:

•Acne scars and scars

•Aged and sun damaged skin

•Facial and décolletage lines and wrinkles

•Hyperpigmentation

•Stretch marks

How does Micro-needling work?

Micro-needling is a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture tiny holes into the surface of the skin to create a controlled skin injury. This triggers the skins natural repair process producing elastin and collagen which in turn rejuvenates the skin. It’s also known as skin needling, derma roller, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).

What does the treatment involve?

Skin is cleansed and prepped and a topical anaesthetic is applied to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and a further 20 – 30 minutes for the Micro-needling treatment. The Micro-needling device is rolled over the area to produce thousands of micro-needle columns in the skin. the skin is then cleansed and a serum and spf is applied.

Are there any secondary effects?

The skin can be quite red straight after treatment but this will start to subside as the columns will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.

How many treatments do I need?

It is recommended a course of 3 – 6 treatments for maximum results spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart.

How much does it cost?

Prices start from £120 per treatment and discounts are available for any courses booked.
