Demaroller treatment for acne related scarring and pigmentationBedford Skin Clinic offers Dermaroller treatment that significantly improves the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Scars due to other skin conditions
  •  Aged and sun damaged skin
  •  Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
  •  Stretch marks

Dermaroller™ Therapy™ provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. It is quickly gaining popularity in UK, all over Europe and USA. It does not cause any damage to the skin.

How Skin Needling and Dermarollers Work?

The microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These are the key building blocks of skin. A typical dermaroller has 192 needles; the roller is rolled about 6 to 8 times (back and forth in three directions). This will lead to over a thousand needle entries, all of which will act to stimulate new collagen fibres. This will increase the thickness and improve the scarring, wrinkles and aged damaged skin due to aging.

The Microneedles of the dermaroller penetrate the epidermis and dermis layer of skin. The process is well tolerated but some clients may find it uncomfortable. We will numb your face with local anaesthetic for approximately 45 minutes before performing the procedure.

Other Microneedling Benefits

In addition to stimulating collagen growth, micro needling also create channels through which any substance applied to the skins surface (know as topical application) can be absorbed far more easily. Studies suggest that dermaroller treatment can increase the effectiveness of topical treatments by several hundred percent. Besides improving the effectiveness of various products on the skin, it has been used to improve the absorption and hence the efficiency of the product used for Hair Loss. It has also been used to improve cellulite.
