Specialist, relaxing treatments carried out by our professional therapists

Treatment Procedure

What is the Treatment Procedure?

We cleanse and tone the skin, then apply a numbing cream. We then cover with plastic film and leave the skin for 60 minutes for the skin to be numb. We then cleanse the skin to remove numbing cream just before performing the Derma-Rolling treatment. Your skin will stay numb for about 30 minutes. The treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes.

Recovery time

The skin will be pink or red in appearance, much like a sunburn, very occasionally there may be some mild bruising, mainly on older clients. The skin may also feel warm straight after the treatment.

We cool the skin with cold gel packs straight after treatment, the skin may feel tight and itchy for a short while. Generally, the inflammatory reaction of the skin is overall usually short and fades significantly after a couple of hours, depending on the individual. Normally your skin will recover the same day and may have only slight redness the following day if you have sensitive skin.

Immediately after your treatment you will look as though you have moderate sun burn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

Post treatment advice

Using tepid water to cleanse the face for the first 48 hours following treatment and drying the area gently by jut tapping the skin dry without rubbing. Ensuring that your hands are always clean when touching the area treated to avoid any infections. Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day. After each Derma-Roller treatment which greatly increases absorption of topical lotions from 4% to 87% Avoid applying make-up products for the first 12 hours following treatment. No heat treatments for 48 hours Do not touch, scratch the area treated.

Do I need to be more careful in the sun after rolling?

Yes - Do not sun bath for at least 7 day and use a high SPF 50 - After 7 days sun-sensitivity is not induced because of needling. We should all use sun factor even in the winter.

How often do I have the treatment?

Treatments spaced every 6 apart is recommended to achieve optimal results.

How long will it take before I see the results of this treatment?

It can take between 6- 8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue to evolve over the ensuing months providing a gradual improvement. Although a single treatment can provide a noticeable result, after 2 treatments you will an even greater improvement of the skin, however a series of 3 to 6 treatments or more, depending on the age of the client you will see optimum results Combining the Derma-rolling with professional skincare products gives maxim results. Due to the micro trauma the skin is signalled to repair itself challenging the skin to form new collagen, plus strengthening the area and plumping out the skin from the underneath layers.

Due to the micro-trauma the skin is signalled to repair itself to form new collagen, plus strengthening the area and plumping out the skin from the underneath layers. In turn this refines and smoothes out wrinkles and scarring.

Provides tissue formation and tissue remodelling and has the ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to promote healthier skin cells. All these functions work together to help your skin to look smoother, younger and healthier.

This is a natural healing process triggered by the Derma-roller treatment. The process itself can continue for several months’ post treatment, the result increasing during this time and over subsequent treatments. After 12 months, there will be a thick layer of collagen and elastin, leaving a healthier, smoother stronger skin. You can have a top-up treatment once or twice per year depending on age and lifestyle.
