Dermaroller treatment in UK

Recommended Posts

Today i spoke to lady in Oxford who does skin needling i had e-mailed her to discuss the possibility of having this done. In her e-mail she was very frank see copy of email below.

Thank you for your enquiry about CIT for acne scarring.

I have performed this needling technique on a handful of patients, with a generally good outcome after 4 - 6 treatments, about 6 weeks apart.

I should point out though that these patients had only a few acne "pock marks" and not large areas of hypotrophic scarring on their faces. This type of needling would not be suitable for such larger areas, which are better suited to treatment with a medical roller - something only doctors may perform because it involves considerable bleeding.

However, if your acne scarring is not very pitted but flat and red instead, I can treat it very effectively with a course of IPL skin rejuvenation treatments and topical vitamin A skin products.

If you would like to discuss your case please call me on the number below.

I called her and she explained to me all about the deramaroller most of which i knew before from this site , she said she had been to a conference/demonstration on the dermaroller last week and was really impressed with it. I asked her if she could recommend a reputable clinic that i could go to for dermaroller treatment she said she didn't know of one but what she will do is get in touch with the person who did the conference/demonstration and find out which clinic he worked for.

She said she could advise me if i wanted to on the aftercare if i went ahead with this. She really was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Cursed1 I heard from the lady in Oxford today. This is a copy of her e-mail.

The specialist in Dermaroller needling that I saw giving a demonstration at the FACE conference is called Dr Sach Mohan. He has established an aesthetic practice across a number of Middlesex clinics and he is a clinical trainer for Dermaroller.

I'm afraid that I don't know the name of any of these clinics, but I'm sure if you Google his name you will find his details on the internet.

Good luck, and I hope that I have been of some help. Please remember to come and see me about general skincare issues - there's a lot that can be done to improve your skin even without needling!

Whilst looking up Dr Sach Mohan i stumbled on this site http://dermaroller.wordpress.com

it was very interesting Dr Mohan is featured on it. There is also a YouTube clip of last years Face conference 2008.

I have read alot of post about the dermaroller, but never tried one. I could be wrong, but my guts

tels me tells me the improving some have noticed are short lived, and comes from the skin irretation

I am not saying it is so, but it must be a part of it. definitely try it on a small "ayera" :confused:

cant spell that word,, for a period, and go very easy.

Oh my gosh I'm having Genuine Dermaroller for my acne scars on my face with Dr Sach Mohan!!! So far I have found it to be really good, it's the first thing that has ever worked for me at all. In answer to you guys wondering how long it lasts for, it's permanent. I have had two sessions now, and have booked in for my third. You will carry on seeing improvements for about six months as well, it's so exciting! It doesn't hurt, they use an anaesthetic on your face. And afterwards I just look a bit sunburnt! You can have it on other body parts too, but my scars are on my face :( You guys are all welcome to ask me questions about it, I've been telling everyone!

I am told you have to be super careful though, because there are some non-genuine ones out there that shouldn't be used and give you icky infections!! Apparently Genuine Dermaroller is the only one that's actually good enough to be classified a medical device. I booked with Dr Sach Mohan on this number 0800 0195 322 which was on the Genuine Dermaroller website. On www.genuinedermaroller.co.uk there's a list of all the clinics and loads of info too.

It looks a bit scary, but it's not once you have it done. Promise!!x

WorthyP - Wow you're seeing Dr Sach Mohan!! I'm going to see him next week Friday. Did you have the dermaroller straight away or did they advise you to prepare your skin for a couple of weeks before the treatment? I'm so excited and want this sooo much to work for me because i have dark skin and every other treatment outthere is not suitable for my skin type. How much did the treatment cost? How many weeks did you have to wait for the next session, How long did the treatment take? When did you begin to see any improvement? What aftercare advise did you get? Sorry about all these questions but i'm really quite excited about the whole thing.

Hi All

I've now had two sessions of the dermaroller, both of which were completed by Dr Sach Mohan.

Definite improvement in my scars and also the dark pigmentation has improved dramatically.

My acne break outs have virtually stopped as well which Dr Mohan did tell me could happen but I didn't believe him as I didn't want to be disappointed. My skin both looks and feels better. Definitely have more of a glow and as the breakouts have stopped hopefully there won't be anymore scars.

I also use the Vitamin C serum daily as directed by Sach and think this has also helped improved the texture of my skin.

The treatment is almost pain free but the area of my mouth does tend to be more sensitive than the rest of my face. Saying that the pain even on this area is bearable and two minutes of pain is well worth the long term benefits in my opinion.

I do go bright red afterwards and people just presume I'm an extremely irresponsible sunbather! The redness has completely gone after 72 hours on me. I understand for some people the redness fades after about 24 hours so even less down time.

I know it's not cheap but when I think of all the money I've spent on lotions and potions that have had no impact whatsoever i'm glad I spent the money on getting this done.
