How does skin needling improve facial scars?
The process of skin needling induces collagen production which creates progressive repair and support under depressed scars including acne & chicken pox scars.
A series of scar improvement treatments is required. Results are generally seen after about 6 weeks, though the new collagen production continues for 12 months after the last treatment.
Please note scar improvement treatments are not suitable where acne is still active – we can advise on alternative treatments such as skin peels and skincare until the acne has resolved
- All patients will show some improvement, however, how much varies on individual response
- Most clients will achieve a 75-90% improvement in the appearance of scars 12 months post treatment
- Skin Needling is safe on Asian and skins of colour.
Skin Needling scars: how many treatments are required?
Scar improvement treatment may involve up to 6 treatments spaced at 4 – 6 week intervals (depending upon severity). However after the first treatment you will notice an improvement in the quality of the skin.
How does dermaroller or dermastamp skin needling work?
Skin needling improves scars by stimulating your skin to produce new, more elastic collagen. The dermaroller or EDS dermastamp / dermapen creates multiple (upto 150/second) pin point wounds of a selected depth (0.1mm to 2mm) into the skin (which quickly seal & heal), stimulating release of growth factors and new collagen.
Skin needling increases the thickness and health of skin. Other treatments for facial scars such as laser can result in thinner or blanched skin, making it unsuitable for repeat treatments.
Scar Needling treatment From £90 using EDS dermastamp – Small or individual scars to £350 per treatment on extensive body scars using EDS Dermastamp or Genuine Dermaroller – costs vary according to the extent of area to be treated and depth of needle used 0.1mm – 2mm
