What is Dermaroller treatment?

Microneedling with Dermaroller is a very popular treatment used to boost the skin’s own healing powers to tackle many common skin concerns. From wrinkles, scarring, and stretchmarks, through to sagging skin and enlarged pores.

Dermaroller uses a handheld device that houses a network of microscopic needles. As they are gently rolled over the surface of the skin, the production of new collagen is triggered. This, combined Dermaroller with our specialised growth factor serums from AQ Skin Solutions will further enhance the results of the Dermaroller treatment. 

The trauma caused by the needles forces the skin’s own healing mechanism to begin, triggering the production of new skin cells, collagen and elastin. Numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment to ensure you are feeling comfortable throughout the treatment.

Difference in the skin texture can be usually noticed after 1 treatment, but a course of 4-6 treatments is recommended to achieve maximum results. Each treatment may cause some redness and irritation to the skin, which usually subside within the next hours.

Tailored to your concern

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Which type of concerns can Dermaroller treatment address?

Dermaroller can be used on the face or body to treat a variety of skin concerns. It enables even the smallest or most delicate areas to be treated. Its skin rejuvenating powers can work great to target ageing skin, scarred skin, stretchmarks and enlarged pores.

Dermaroller for the face and body

Fine lines and wrinkles

Dermaroller is an effective, minimally invasive solution used to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Not only will it encourage the skin’s own natural healing mechanism, but the specialised nourishing serum used post treatment can help hydrate, plump and revitilise the skin. It can be used on very precise areas and safely carried out around the eyes and mouth.

Enlarged pores

Enlarged pores are a common skin concern for many men and women. Dermaroller treatment works to effectively tighten and smooth out the skin, with its intense growth factor serum penetrating the deeper layers for enhanced results. The trauma caused by microscopic needles forces the skin to heal itself, producing fresh skin cells, collagen and elastin – all of which can help to tighten and minimise the appearance of your pores.

Sagging skin

A full course of Dermaroller treatments can offer great results when it comes to tackling sagging skin on the face. Often, the skin around the jowl area droops and loosens as we age, altering our overall appearance. Dermaroller’s skin firming capabilities can help to tighten loose skin for a younger looking, better-defined jaw line.

Loose, Sagging skin

Whether you’re suffering from loose and sagging skin following pregnancy or due to weight loss, it can be hard to know which treatment to choose. Our Dermaroller treatment tricks the skin into thinking its wounded and therefore kick-starts the production of collagen to repair the damage. This results in tighter skin around the area treated.


Stretchmarks plague many men and women. Dermaroller treatment can tackle the appearance of stretchmarks, reducing redness and improving skin tone and texture. The treatment doesn’t only encourage new skin cell and collagen production but can also deeply hydrate the epidermis for a more toned, revitalised appearance.

Step by step Dermaroller in London

  1. No obligation consultation

    Your first step is a complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced Treatment Coordinators. During this initial consultation your full medical history will be taken and you will have the opportunity to discuss your beauty goals and expectations from the treatment.

  2. Meet your practitioner

    If you decide to proceed with Dermaroller London, your first appointment with the practitioner will be booked. They will explain the treatment in more detail and provide you with all the necessary information before and after the treatment.

  3. During treatment

    Your therapist will apply a topical anaesthetic cream prior to the treatment to make sure you are feeling comfortable. A sterile, single-use roller with microneedles will be used all over the areas you wish to treat, creating microtraumas that will jump start your body’s collagen production. A specific nourishing serum will also be applied to enhance the cell regeneration process. The treatment can last up to 90 minutes depending on your specific concerns and the areas you wish to treat.

  4. After treatment

    This treatment involves minimal downtime (up to 5 days) for your skin to fully recover. You should expect some redness and sensitivity on the treated areas that will soon subside leaving you with a more even, retextured complexion. Your practitioner will assess the exact amount of downtime needed according to the intensity of the treatment. Usually we recommend a course of 4 to 6 treatments for optimum results.
