Dermaroller

A sterile, single use device which significantly improves the appearance of stretch marks, skin tone and texture, areas of sun damage and fine lines. The treatment works by stimulating the skin through micro needle marks (an anaesthetic agent is used beforehand) to encourage the skin to repair itself and thus produce new collagen; it is through this healing process that an overall rejuvenation of the skin is apparent. The dermaroller effectively treats the face, neck and décolletage as well as areas of the body. A fantastic combination treatment which works well alongside any injectable treatment to enhance the final result.
