Derma Roller

Collagen Induction Therapy

Derma roller is a simple, non-invasive treatment that really works, either as a beauty treatment or for skin tightening and acne scar reduction.  The roller creates thousands of tiny punctures which your body repairs by creating new collagen

If you have scars or stretch marks, Dry Tattooing (MCA Micro Needling) should be your first option.  Dry Tattooing is more intense and  precise than a hand held roller

Derma roller is perfect however for skin tightening and I use it as a combined treatment (with dry tattooing) on skin with poor elasticity i.e tummy and breasts and the effects of pregnancy, age and gravity.  I dry tattoo each stretch mark, and Derma Roller the whole area.  This is so collagen is induced at levels each area needs

Derma Roller best for Skin tightening

Micro needles up to 1.5mm are used for skin tightening.  Derma Roller treatments improve the thickness of the skin and the new collagen growth causes a skin tightening effect, this is especially good on the neck area, bingo wings, tummies and thighs

Derma Roller

Some medical professionals will use deep derma rollers, 2mm and 3mm, for areas such as tummy stretch marks and scarring, however due to the size of a derma roller, and the slowness of hand rolling it, Dry Tattooing (MCA Micro Needling) is far more precise, quick and will give damaged skin more controlled stimulation, so it can re-heal

I use Derma Roller for skin tightening, tummy, bingo wings and neck, also as a combined treatment with Dry Tattooing (MCA)for tummy stretch marks and acne scarring

Caution when using Derma Roller at home

It’s very easy to purchase clinical and medical depth derma rollers online.  I am insured to offer a needle depth of 1.5mm, anything over this is considered medical.  Where a medical derma roller would be used, I instead use the far more precise and effective Dry Tattooing

If you are intent on using a home use roller, please only use depths of 0.2mm or 0.3mm, these depths are perfect for a beauty treatment and to help smooth fine lines.  Anything deeper than this is going into blood levels and not only is there a whole other level of pain, there is also they hygiene risk of you not cleaning the products properly and causing infections, let alone the damage of inappropriately using needles too deep for the area needed.  As an example, I would only use a 1.5mm dermal roller on the face if there was deep acne scarring


I use my hand size to calculate prices (my hand’s not small!), and using this simple method you can work out your own price

Area size of 2 hands – £200
Each extra hand size – £100

Frequently asked questions

Does it hurt ?

Numbing cream will be applied before to your treatment making the procedure quite comfortable

What areas can be treated ?

The derma roller is used to treat the face and neck, décolletage and most body areas that are troubled by loose skin, bingo wings, tummy, thighs

I’ve got wrinkles, will derma rolling help ?

You’ll find Dry Tattooing, Meso Vytal and Peel & Heal will help to relax and smooth most wrinkles, and then when the skin is smoother use the derma roller to maintain

Is my skin suitable for treatment ?

Derma roller is suitable for all skin types, regardless of colour or sensitivity.  It’s proven to be effective on all areas of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage.  Unlike laser treatments and peels, the top surface of the skin is not removed, so there is less time recovering

How long before I see any results ?

It can take 3 to 6 weeks before the signs of collagen growth can be seen, and this process will continue over the following months.  Full results are seen after 3 treatments and about 3 months of healing and skin developing.  Skin needling gives a natural and long lasting smoothing effect, and with maintenance the appearance of new wrinkles and saggy skin can be reduced

How many derma roller treatments do I need to have ?

A course of three treatments is recommended for best results

What will the area look like after the treatment?

Immediately after treatment the area may feel tight and warm, a bit like sunburn, this is very individual and varies with areas treated.  You will be supplied with an aftercare kit and advice on healing
