Before your treatment

You will have a formal consultation with a healthcare professional. During this time you will be able to explain your medical history, symptoms and raise any concerns that you might have.

We will also discuss with you whether any further diagnostic tests, such as scans or blood tests, are needed. Any additional costs will be discussed before further tests are carried out.

Preparing for your treatment

We've tried to make your experience with us as easy and relaxed as possible.

For more information on visiting hours, our food, what to pack if you're staying with us, parking and all those other important practicalities, please visit our patient information pages.

Our dedicated team will also give you tailored advice to follow in the run up to your visit.

The procedure

A small roller covered in thousands of tiny needles is passed over the skin, making tiny breaks in the dermis of the skin. This starts a natural regeneration process where the skin begins to heal itself by producing more collagen and elastin, increasing cell renewal.

You may experience redness and tightness of the skin, similar to moderate sunburn, but this should disappear within 48 hours. In the following weeks, as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced, the skin will normally look brighter and more vibrant.


We are committed to delivering excellent individual care and customer service across our network of hospitals, clinics and specialist care centres around the UK. Our dedicated and highly trained team aim to achieve consistently excellent results. For us it's more than just treating patients, it's about looking after people.

Important to note

The treatment described on this page may be adapted to meet your individual needs, so it's important to follow your healthcare professional's advice and raise any questions that you may have with them.
