Dermaroller™ is an advanced sterile medical device, which contains thousands of micro-needles, designed to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin. The needles are rolled over the skin rapidly, several times, in different directions, essentially causing ‘damage’ through controlled serial puncture. The body’s reaction to this is the healing process, which in turn stimulates regeneration of cells and production of elastin and collagen, helping to improve the overall texture of skin and diminish fine lines or scaring. The production of collagen and elastin takes approximately 6 weeks post treatment, a course of 6 treatments is recommended, spaced 6 weeks apart.

A full assessment, including medical history taking, will be carried out before any treatment. If you are on any medications it is strongly advised to bring these with you to your consultation. Prior to treatment your skin will be numbed with a local aesthetic cream to help ease the discomfort of the needling. Scabs do not form; however, you may notice tracking marks on the skin for a few days post treatment. You will be very red post procedure and may have some puffiness the following day. If you are looking to have micro needling with Dermaroller™ in Harrogate, try NH Aesthetics, we recommend an LED light therapy session post treatment to help ease redness and reduce puffiness, this is an optional add on.
