Importance of finding a reputable dermaroller clinic

We cannot reiterate this enough: make sure that you use a reputable clinic which is licensed to use dermaroller and by a fully trained, experienced practitioner.

As with any thing in life, most clinics are professional and focussed upon giving their clients the best service possible. But, unfortunately, there are a few which are more concerned with profit than patients.

So you need to do your homework and research clinics and practitioners to ensure that you find the right one for you and your needs.

Here are few research methods:

  • Speak to anyone you know who has undergone dermaroller. Ask them for the name of their clinic and/or practitioner.
  • Search online: look at skin and laser clinics as well as cosmetic clinics.
  • Read through any literature about dermaroller. This includes hard copies/magazines/brochures as well as online material.

It is a good idea to make a shortlist of potential clinics and contact each of these in turn. Devise a series of questions and take these with you when you visit these clinics.

Suggested questions to ask:

  • Am I suitable for dermaroller treatment?
  • What are the benefits and risks of dermaroller?
  • What can I expect from this treatment?
  • How soon will I see any improvements in my skin?
  • Do I need to prepare for dermaroller?
  • What skincare products should I use after the treatment?
  • How long have you been offering this treatment?
  • Is this clinic licensed/authorised to provide dermaroller?
  • What is included in the price (e.g. aftercare skin products etc)

Make a note of the answers: if you are unsure about anything or are not satisfied with any of the answers then continue to ask until you are satisfied with the response.

If the clinic seems evasive or unwilling to answer all of your questions or shows a lack of interest in your wellbeing then look elsewhere.

Dermaroller costs

Prices vary between clinics. These prices are determined by a range of factors which include the location of the clinic, the reputation (and experience) of the dermaroller practitioner and staff and the type of treatment.

The cost of treatment is important but this is not the most important factor when choosing a clinic. Make sure you choose a reputable clinic which is licensed to provide dermaroller and has a good reputation.

Your health and wellbeing are more important than the cost or trying to get a good deal so be prepared to pay more if it means a first rate service.

As a rough guide you can expect to pay £250 or more for a single dermaroller session. The costs soon add up if you require several sessions but you may find a clinic which offers a block booking of sessions at a discounted price.
