What is the Derma Roller
The Derma Roller is a single roller device which consists of a rotating wheel studded with tiny 1.5 mm long needles. These needles penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn cause the skin to mount an injury response. This procedure utilises the collagen and elastin to thicken the skin, repair scars and smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles. This stimulus also causes growth of new capillaries which improves blood supply to the skin. Dermaroller is a natural skin rejuvenation and scar repair therapy that can significantly improve the appearance of:

The Derma Roller treatment
The process involves rolling a small barrel covered in very fine and small needles (1.5mm) quickly over the area to be treated in six directions. The needles puncture the skin and part the pores of the top layer of skin without damaging it. The process however is read as damage by the body and growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin are triggered. The skin renews itself every 40 days and therefore with 3-6 weekly treatments you see noticeable changes which grow with every treatment. Dermaroller is particularly good for acne scarring which is otherwise difficult to treat and is used in NHS acne clinics for that very need. The skin will regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin Alongside this, atrophic (sunken) scars also respond very well. Dermaroller is safe for all skin types and colours.
The treatment usually takes around 20 minutes, depending on the area being treated and any specific problems that need concentrating on. As it produces some pain you will need to arrive 45 minutes before your treatment time to have a local anaesthetic cream applied.
Is the Derma Roller treatment painful?
No the treatment is not painful, but it can be mildly uncomfortable. The skin is numbed before treatment either with local anaesthetic cream or nerve block. After the treatment you may feel as if you have slight sunburn for the next 12-24 hours.
Is it safe?
Dermaroller utilises sterile single-use devices. It is a CE marked medical device. The therapy is only available from trained practitioners and authorised clinics. The Body Clinic is such an authorised clinic.
What results can I expect?
After a Dermaroller treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen and elastin is formed, new skin cells are regenerated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and this will continue over the following months, providing you with gradual and long lasting enhancement.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the treatment yours skin will look as though you have moderate sunburn and it 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. There are other minor possible side effects and these will be discussed at your consultation
How many treatments are recommended?
We normally recommend that your Dermaroller treatments consists of a series of three treatments with approximately 6 weeks between them. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary that the client has up to 5 treatments.

For some people a single treatment session is all that is needed to significantly improve the texture and appearance of their skin. Most people will require up to 4 treatment sessions, typically at six week intervals. For patients with severe acne scarring, up to five Derma Roller treatments will be needed. Improvement in skin texture and tone may appear one to three weeks after the initial treatment.
Straight after treatment
