Before and Afters
Are you concerned about Acne scarring?
Dermal needling therapy (aka Dermaroller) is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that utilises a needling device to create thousands of tiny channels (micro-wounds) in the skin. The tiny wounds trigger a cascade of wound healing activity that results in the generation of healthy new collagen and new capillaries resulting in improved skin texture and reduction of scars. Essentially the old skin is replaced with new healthy skin which is plump, firm and hydrated.
* Dermal needling is used to help stimulate collagen induction and skin rejuvenation.
