I am often asked about what treatments I offer and so I thought I would share some more information with you as Blogs.  The first one is going to be about Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™.

The Genuine 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. Dermaroller is a natural skin regeneration and Scar Repair.

Dermaroller can significantly improve the appearance of:

  • Facial and décolletage lines and wrinkles
  • Aged and sun damaged skin
  • Acne scars
  • Rejuvenation of hands


After your consultation, where all your questions are answered and you are assessed for your suitability to proceed, you will be booked in for your treatment at a time most convenient to you.

A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied prior to your treatment to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will normally take up to 1 hour for the topical anaesthetic to work.


The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ utilises sterile single-use medical devices. I use a Dermaroller medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.



After the procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens pores which become larger as we age.

  • The treatment requires no down time
  • It naturally stimulates the skin to repair itself creating a thicker and healthier appearance
  • It improves the appearance of acne scarring and chicken pox scars
  • The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ can be used on all skin tones and types


There are many reasons why people choose to have Dermaroller:

  • To reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and décolletage
  • Rejuvenate hands and minimise signs of ageing
  • Revitalise aged and sun damaged skin
  • Reduces acne scarring


The final decision will be made between you and I and the procedure is most suitable for those patients who are seeking to rejuvenate damaged skin or treat acne scars on the face or chest.
