About the treatment

The Genuine Dermaroller utilises sterile single-use medical devices. The Dermaroller medical device produces 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.

After the procedure 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.

What is the DermaPen?

The DermaPen is a hand held device about the size of a pen. It has a piece that is inserted into the top of the device, and this piece contains needles, which penetrate the skin at different levels depending on initial skin concerns or the depth of scarring. This micro injury prompts the skin to heal and repair itself, and causes new collagen and elastin to form while helping the breakdown of old collagen. This leads to smoother, more refined skin and a visible reduction of fine lines and acne scars due to the skin tightening and remodeling effects of the Dermapen treatment.

Benefits of the DermaRoller and DermaPen

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Effective anti-ageing treatment
  • Proven treatment for acne scars
  • Minimal downtime
  • Alternative to laser treatment
  • Suitable for delicate areas like under the eyes

The number of treatments required depends of the problem being treated:

Rejuvenation –  3 treatment course
Acne Scarring – 5 treatment course
Stretch Marks – 5 treatment course

There will be approximately 6 weeks between treatments.

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.

The results from a treatment are permanent. As it is a repair of the skin it does not revert after a given time period. Treatment for fine lines and wrinkles will improve the skin; however it will not stop skin ageing and new lines forming.

We advise that make up is not applied for 24 hours after the procedure and a strong UVA/UVB sunscreen is recommended following the treatment.
