Micro skin needling is an effective method of erasing imperfections from the surface of the skin. It encourages Collagen and Elastin production within the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and making the skin smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking. Micro needling involves using a Dermal Roller, which is a precision engineered handheld medical device studded with microneedles that stimulates skin renewal by creating small punctures in the skin. The body responds by initiating the healing process by releasing growth factors and triggering the production of Collagen and Elastin in the skin.

The needles come in a variety of sizes (typically from around 0.25mm for domestic use, all the way up to 3mm for professional use) and have astonishing effects on everything from wrinkles to acne scarring.  

Dermal Roller can be used on all skin types and even sensitive areas such as around the eyes, neck and hands. 

You will be normally recommended a series of three procedures with approximately 6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scaring it may be necessary to have up to five procedures. Dermaroller is not recommended for active acne, as it will unfortunately spread bacteria and aggravate the affected area.

Dermaroller should take no more than 30-60 minutes (depending on the size of the area), although please allow some extra time for application and development of a numbing agent prior to treatment. This will likely add an additional 30 minutes or so to your treatment duration.


Immediately after the treatment you will look as you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day. The slight skin swelling will also usually subside in a day or two.

Any punctures made by the Dermaroller will heal over within 24 hours, although within this period, it is advised to refrain from applying makeup or generally touching the treated skin as could pass bacteria into the open wounds.
