How long does the procedure take?
The procedure normally takes 30 minutes.
How long do the results last?
This is dependent on the reason for the dermaroller. For scars and acne marks, the effects of dermaroller are permanent. When the procedure is used for skin rejuvenation, the effects last up to 2 years.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic gel is normally used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
This is dependent on the condition of your skin and the area to be treated. Most clients find that 2-4 treatments are sufficient.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). There will be some reddening in the area for a few days, so you may want to consider this if you are planning trips away or special days.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Other procedures may be of benefit depending on the effect you are trying to achieve. Your non-surgical practitioner and coordinator will guide you as to the best treatments for you.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
