Microneedling using dermaroller is one of the most popular non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. A quick, simple and effective treatment for skin tightening, acne scarring and anti-ageing, microneedling can be done either as a standalone treatment or in combination with other techniques such as PRP or Mesotherapy.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation which involves the use of a needling device to create controlled skin injury.
What are the Benefits of micro needling?
The control injury triggers the body to feel micro-wounds to produce new collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin (dermis). In addition, new capillaries are formed which then leads to reduction of scarring and skin rejuvenation & improves skin texture and firmness.
Is downtime required after the treatment?
You will have a slight redness and inflammation but this will calm down after 24 hours.
Can I Do Microneedling In Combination With Other Aesthetic Treatments?
Yes – we often perform microneedling treatments in London in combination with other techniques such as PRP, mesotherapy and injectables. Your practitioner will advise you during your consultation about which treatments are most suitable for your skin.

A topical numbing cream will be applied to the skin prior to any treatment. This means that the procedure is comfortable and pain is minimal.
As with any aesthetic treatment, sun exposure should be avoided for 3 weeks prior to any treatment. We also advise to stop any retinol based skincare for 3 days prior to the treatment.
You will have a slight redness and healing response inflammation but this will usually calm down after 12-24 hours. A mineral based makeup (oxygenetix) may be used immediately post procedure.
Following the micro needling treatment we generally advise to use only medical grade skincare and to avoid anything too harsh on the skin, such as strong retinoids and acids. SPF is essential for the days following the treatment.
Usually we advise to complete an initial course of 4-6 treatments, once per month, and then a maintenance session every 3-6 months thereafter. Certain conditions, such as acne scarring may require more sessions for optimal results.
Yes - microneedling has been shown to be effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars. This is a process so don’t expect dramatic results overnight though! Usually a course of treatments is needed to achieve the best possible result.
Yes - microneedling is known as a ‘collagen induction therapy’, i.e. it stimulates a response in your own body to increase levels of collagen and elastin in the dermis of the skin. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles can appear reduced after a course of treatments.
A study by the Brazilian Annals of Dermatology showed that in-clinic microneedling treatment with dermaroller was effective in reducing pigmentation in cases of melasma marks.
