A facial treatment which uses a micro-needling device to stimulate the deepest layers of the skin, Dermaroller resurfaces and smooths the skin. It’s very effective in the repair of damaged skin through regenerating the body’s own production of elastin and collagen.
Skin issued which can be treated by Dermaroller include sun damage, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, cellulite, scar tissue, hyper-pigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks. Depending on the particular skin concern, different depths of microneedles are used to ensure the best results from treatment.
Dermaroller treatment brings benefits such as a fresher, smoother texture to the skin and in turn a healthy, younger-looking appearance. This is because the skin naturally repairs itself after the procedure, which stimulates new skin cell production.
Skin conditions such as such as acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores and sun damage can be repaired and improved by Dermaroller. It increases the skin’s elasticity and suppleness, resulting in a softer, smoother texture and appearance afterwards.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include slight bleeding during the treatment as the skin is being penetrated, redness, and increased sensitivity.
Dermaroller treatment is suitable for most skin types and ages. It will help to completely resurface your skin and is ideal for a skin-tightening boost, or for deeper skin issues which aren’t able to be enhanced by skincare products on their own.
However, should you have active acne, you should be aware that this treatment cannot be carried out as it may spread bacteria from your blemishes to other parts of your face. Dermaroller is also unsuitable for people with eczema or psoriasis.
During your consultation your aesthetic medical practitioner will be able to let you know whether they recommend a single treatment or a course of treatment, depending on the concerns you have regarding your skin.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
