Read our key facts about DermaRoller™

Scars are part of the body's natural healing system. They are left behind after injury or assault on the skin, say from acne or a chicken pox infection. However, scar tissue is slightly inferior to the original tissue of the unbroken skin. The most common type of acne scar is called an 'icepick' scar because it causes an indentation in the skin's surface. Acne scarring is very common. In fact it is thought to affect about a third of people with moderate or severe acne. It can have a big impact on your self-esteem and even affect your quality of life.

Although no treatment can completely erase acne scarring there are a number of treatments that can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars. The DermaRollerTM is one of our most popular treatments.

The DermaRollerTM is also used for natural facial rejuvenation. It can help you achieve smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. The treatment is an excellent alternative to laser resurfacing.

At Freedomhealthskin a qualified medical practitioner will assess your suitability for treatment and also advise you about any risks. We do not use beauticians or aestheticians or any other non-medically qualified personnel. We aim to make your skin look its best without over-treatment.
