Reducing the appearance of scars with a home based skin needling treatment can be a more challenging athe some of other dermaroller treatments. It is important that you understand the process so that you are able to understand whether the home based treatment is suitable for you. We also have specific information for acne scars available



Scar Types

There are several types of scars, not all of which are suitable for skin needling treatments. Because the dermaroller process increases the formation of collagen, raised Keloid and Hypertrophic scars should not undergo dermarolling treatments.The more common Atrophic Scar is far more common type and is suitable for dermaroller treatments.

Cause Of Scarring

The reason a scar remains is largely due to an imbalance of collagen and skin tissue in the area where the scar appears. Skin needling aims to improve the look and texture of the scar at the same time as helping it to better blend into the skin around it.


Getting Rid Of Scars

Very deep or severe scarring is unlikely to benefit from home based skin needling. We suggest considering salon based treatements in these cases. For light scarring, the dermaroller offers a genine procedure to permenently improve the skins appearance. The process can take several weeks or even months, and whilst still challenging, most users should see significant improvements in the scars appearance.

Which Needle Length To Choose

Depending on the location of the scar, you will need to choose a needle length accordingly. Generally, the fleshier the skin, the longer the needle can be. For areas such as the backside and thighs, you can choose a longer needle such as a 1.5mm. For scars on the eybrows and other sensitive areas, a 0.5mm is fine. If you are unsure, please ask see our guide to needle lengths or get in touch and we will be glad to help.
