The process of your microneedling treatment will vary depending on which type of treatment is being carried out.
Microneedling General Procedure
The practitioner will apply an anaesthetic cream to your skin for 45-60 minutes before your treatment to numb the area. A medical roller known as Dermaroller will be rolled over the area being treated to produce thousands of micro-medical needle punctures in the skin. This controlled damage to the skin surface is not deep enough to elicit a scarring response however it will cause the body to have a healing response. The nearby tissue is broken down and new elastin and collagen are formed. This way scarring, lines, wrinkles and pigmentation are all gently removed, being replaced over time with new skin. The practitioners can control the depth of needling to achieve the best result – they can go as deep as 1.5mm on the face, which has proven successful in removing scars, and as deep as 3mm on the body. The practitioner will assess how deep they need to go.
Dermaroller can be used on any part of the body. The most common area to be treated is the face for acne scars or to treat fine lines and wrinkles. The Dermaroller is also used to treat lines and wrinkles on the neck, décolletage and the backs of hands.
The cost of Microneedling treatment starts at £265 per session and £675.00 course of 3 treatments, course of 6 is £1,250. The cost of dermaroller or dermapen treatment will vary depending on:
- The type of treatment recommended.
- The areas treated.
- The number of treatments required.
The best way to find out the cost of dermaroller or dermapen treatment is to book a consultation with one of our expert skin practitioners where they will come up with a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve the results you desire. Consultations with our expert skin practitioners are £25 however this cost is redeemable against the price of any skin treatment that you wish to book following your consultation.
It can take up to six 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. In the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring it may be necessary for your practitioner to extend your Dermaroller procedure, carrying out up to five procedures.
The treatment is relatively pain free and the anaesthetic cream is applied beforehand to reduce any discomfort that may be caused.
