The procedure aims to remove the fine lines wrinkles and deep acne scarring as well as to make the skin's surface to look smooth. This is achieved by using an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It is also used to remove the ‘peach fuzz’ the short soft hair on your face.

A dermaroller is a skin care device used to help rejuvenate the skin, treat acne scarring and reduce signs of aching. When the dermaroller is rolled over the skin, the small fine needles on the roller puncture the skin. The holes that the needles create are tiny and superficial. The controlled injuries to the skin lead to superficial bleeding. This triggers the body's wound healing response and the following occurs
New blood vessels form in the skin
The skin starts to make more collagen
The skin releases substances that stimulate growth
This helps the skin to become firmer and may reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
Who would benefit from this treatment
It is great for any skin types, and for clients with larger pores, acne and for clients that just want a skin tightening boast.

You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days of the procedure, you also may notice peeling after the first few days which is normal. You can go back to work after the procedure if you feel comfortable. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
I recommend a course of three treatments every 3-4 weeks for best results.
