Derma Roller - Highgate Private Hospital

Derma Roller

Derma rolling is a treatment that involves the use of a derma roller (handheld roller-device covered in microneedles), being rolled over the surface of the skin. The tiny needles are designed to superficially break the surface of the skin in order to trigger skin repair, which in turn leads to your body producing more collagen. This is good as collagen provides our skin with what it needs to fight the signs of ageing

Conditions Suitable for Derma Rolling Treatments

Acne Scars

The scarring that acne leaves can often be cause for a sense of embarrassment or lack of confidence for those that have suffered from acne in their past. The prickling of the skin by the derma roller will cause the skin to repair and replace itself which, if done over a number of sessions, can eventually cause scarring to fade.


Unwanted signs of ageing skin

Derma rolling has the ability to slow down the signs of ageing skin by triggering the production of collagen. The treatment works by thickening, strengthening and increasing the elasticity of skin leading to a more youthful appearance.


Uneven skin tone caused by Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. Making spots or patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas. This is a common skin condition that affects people of all skin types. Derma rolling can help by encouraging the skin to shed its top layer resulting in an evener skin tone.


Large Pores

Large pores can lead to a number of problems, such as acne, blackheads or oily skin. Derm rolling by encouraging the production of collagen will thicken the skin to reduce the effects of large pores.


Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are often caused by a number of reasons either involving a sudden gaining or loss of weight. Depending on the skin type they can appear in different colours: pink, red, brown, black, silver or purple. Derma rolling by stimulating the skin to repair itself is used to reduce the unwanted appearance of stretch marks.
