The principle of skin needling takes advantage of the body’s natural response to damage or injury, which is to repair itself by regenerating the collagen and elastin fibres. The Dermaroller triggers the self-repair mechanism through hundreds of tiny pin pricks to boost collagen growth.
Following your treatment, your skin may appear red or flushed, which will fade within a few hours. The Dermaroller may leave a few small marks at the most and may leave none, as the needles are extremely fine.
It is possible to have one Dermaroller treatment with noticeable results, however results can vary from person to person. For optimum results, we recommend a course of 3 sessions, 6 weeks apart.
Skin needling requires no injections. It is minimally invasive, side effects are unlikely, and the instrument used is 100% sterile.
We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with treatment, so we offer a private consultation free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic practitioner to discuss the treatment options available and whether Dermarollers treatment is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the treatment, from the areas that can be treated to aftercare and the results you can expect. Your practitioner will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale and our treatment facilities
At your consultation, you can book your treatment if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic treatment is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you an information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require customers to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about THG’s cosmetic treatment expertise and inspiring stories from some of our customers. Our clinic teams are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.
On the day of your treatment, your clinic team will make your experience as comfortable as possible. Depending on the area to be treated and the needle size used, a topical anaesthetic cream may be used, if required. The Dermaroller is a very simple appliance, consisting of a cylindrical barrel with titanium ultra-fine microneedles. The needles are engineered from pure titanium, which reduces the irritation while penetrating the skin. When rollered over the skin, the tiny needles penetrate the top layers of skin creating microscopic punctures. This facilitates high absorption of specialist serums and creams, so that they are effective deep within the dermis, and stimulates the skin’s self-repair and regeneration, inducing collagen production.
All THG clinics are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and customer comfort and we’ll be here to help you recuperate quickly. For Dermarollers treatment, you’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as the procedure is completed.
At THG, we’re here to support you after your procedure. Healing and recovery is generally fast after Dermarollers treatment, as the healthy epidermis is left intact. The result is a brighter, fresher more even complexion, as collagen production is stimulated from deep within the dermis.
