Collagen Production


Dermaroller treatment is revolutionary and works by increasing collagen production to create a smoother, brighter, younger-looking complexion.

The beauty of Dermaroller is that it is suitable for all skin types, including African, Asian, Caucasian and Hispanic and can be used on the face, neck, décolleté and other parts of the body requiring treatment with minimal downtime. Treatment significantly improves the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun-damaged skin, facial lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks – but at a fraction of the cost of alternative treatments, such as laser skin therapy.

Major Advantages

  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Does not cause skin damage (no ablation/removal of the epidermis)
  • Does not induce skin sensitivity to UV light
  • No risk of permanent skin discolouration
  • Can be used on thin skin formerly treated with chemical peels and laser
  • Can be used on the face, neck, décolleté and any other parts of the body requiring treatment
  • Cost-effective treatment alternative
  • Short or no downtime

Other Advantages

1. This treatment is revolutionary. It does the same job as lasers and other ablative methods by increasing collagen production with minimal damage to the protective layer of the skin, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

2. This treatment is effective but at a fraction of the cost.

3. It is safe. You will experience little or no pain and downtime. A topical anaesthetic will be applied, and this “numbing” effect and the device’s quality will make the procedure a pleasant experience.

4. Enhances penetration of skincare products up to 40 times more compared to regular application of the cream on the surface of your skin.


Frequently Asked Questions

Firstly, you should schedule an appointment for a face-to-face consultation with our cosmetic doctor to discuss your concerns and desired outcomes from this procedure. Dr Bong will listen to your concerns, examine your muscles carefully, and establish if you are suitable for this treatment. Our terms and conditions can be found here.

The Genuine Dermaroller Therapy produces thousands of micro-medical needle columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate the dermis of the skin. The columns will close rapidly, enabling the skin to recover quickly – often on the same day. First, an anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable; it will typically take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy procedure. Once the Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure has finished, and the skin has been cleansed and soothed, the treated area will look just like the sunburn we mentioned earlier and feel warm and tight.

Significantly improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Aged and sun-damaged skin
  • Large pores
  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks

It takes up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the Genuine Dermaroller Therapy procedure.

No, the topical anaesthetic helps make the procedure a pleasant experience. Immediately after treatment, you will look like you have moderate sunburn, and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will usually recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

After a Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated, and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen. The process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long-lasting enhancement.

Dr Bong may recommend that your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ consists of three Genuine Dermaroller™ procedures with approximately six weeks between them.

In treating acne scars and other types of scarring, your practitioner may need to extend your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™, carrying out up to five procedures.

Genuine Dermaroller Therapy can be performed repeatedly. Depending on your skin condition, we recommend an initial treatment cycle of 2 to 3 treatments to achieve the maximum possible results. As the new collagen formation needs time to mature, we propose six weeks before the next treatment is commenced. As your skin continues to age, an annual refresher treatment should be considered.

Costs depending on how many treatments are required. Prices are usually around £280 per session.  

We accept cash or the following major credit and debit cards. We do not accept personal cheques.

If you are a new patient, a booking fee will be taken at the point of making your appointment.  Please read our full terms and conditions here.

We respect that your time is valuable, and we appreciate that you understand ours is too. Unfortunately, if appointments are cancelled or rescheduled at short notice, or if you do not attend an appointment, we cannot allocate your appointment slot to someone else; however, we still have overheads and staff salaries to pay. Please read our full terms and conditions here.

Please note for all patients, a £50 fee will be charged if you cancel or reschedule ANY appointment (including appointments which do not require an upfront deposit, such as a ‘check-up’ or review appointment) less than 48 hours before the appointment time. Patients who have pre-purchased a course of treatment will forfeit one of the treatments instead of paying this fee.

Late arrival to your appointment may result in reduced treatment time or the forfeiting of the appointment. We will endeavour to ensure that your appointment runs on time. However, for reasons beyond our control, we may need to cancel or postpone your appointment at short notice. In this unlikely event, we will try to contact you in advance. We do not offer compensation if we cancel or postpone your appointment.

Please read our full terms and conditions here.

To help our patients minimise the chance of losing their deposit or pre-paid treatments, we issue text reminders a minimum of 48 hours ahead of appointments. Patients should be aware that there may be reasons beyond our control, meaning that the text message does not reach them. Patients should diarise themselves when making follow-up appointments and not rely solely on the text message from the clinic as a reminder.

I am delighted with the results – the texture of my skin is great and fine lines, particularly around my mouth, are much less noticeable.

I am really pleased with the results. I can see a definite reduction in lines and wrinkles, and my old acne scars are much improved.
