Derma Roller Skin Needling

A manual derma roller microneedling session is the first version of microneedling, which helps your skin reproduce lost collagen and helps to strengthen your skin’s elastin.

Microneedling works by damaging the skin slightly with titanium microneedles. Your body’s response to these microneedles is to heal the micro-wounds, sending collagen to the sites, which then begins the healing process. This is an instantaneous response.

After a month, you will be able to see the result, as the body’s skin cells refresh every 28 days. The recovery period for this procedure is only 1-2 days, depending on skin sensitivity.

If you would like to book a consultation, we are open from 10.00am – 8.00pm Monday to Friday.

The Procedure

Prior To Treatment

Manual derma rollers can leave the skin red after treatment. Before your treatment, you will be advised not to use retinol for two weeks and allow two days for recovery. A more up-to-date version using skin pen microneedling is also available. We recommend no sun exposure after the treatment.


A manual derma roller is a gentle rejuvenation treatment that uses a manual microneedling device, often added to a facial for extra effect. A local anaesthetic numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes and then your treatment begins. The treatment will leave you red for 2-3 days, depending on your skin sensitivity.

After Treatment

We will advise you on an appropriate skin care treatment and ask you to book your next appointments so that you can continue your skincare journey with us. You may find that your skin may be red for 48 hours.

What To Expect

During a manual derma roller treatment, the skin is cleaned, and a numbing cream is applied to the face for 20-30 minutes. We then remove the numbing cream and the microneedling begins. Some patients may experience some slight discomfort. The treatment lasts approximately 75 minutes.


The Results

• Collagen re-production
• Scars will lessen
• Fine lines will soften

Cannot rate this clinic highly enough. From initial booking and greeting from Carly who is always so lovely and accommodating, through to the treatment with Flavio. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my face. He takes time and pride in his procedures. He makes you feel so special as a patient, he shares advice, he makes you feel safe and talks through everything with you. You leave feeling so confident in your appearance. Flavio’s work is unmatched, truly an artist and a magician.

Lovely welcoming clinic,Carly and Marina are fabulous, and I always feel like I am given the best service. I will be back for more treatments soon
I had a fabulous deep cleanse facial by Marina and it was spectacular. Amazing results and just what I needed at the end of a holiday! I’ve been to the clinic on a few occasions for this facial and each time it has been the best! It is the only clinic I will go to for a deep cleanse facial as it has demonstrated better results than any other clinic I’ve been to. Marina did my first ever facial at CF so I was thrilled to have another appointment with her! I really appreciated the time and care she put into my facial. I love how the extraction process doesn’t cause much redness, so when you are leaving the clinic your face isn’t blotchy or painful.

I’ve been coming to clinica Flore for a few years now and I honestly couldn’t recommended them enough. Always a warm welcome from the team Carly and Marina. The treatment is thoroughly professional and sorts out my chronic rosacea everytime, it’s a 10 out of 10 from me.

Before going in for my HIFU treatment I did some reading about the procedure, particularly about the side effects. One that had me a bit worried was being blotchy and red as I do have sensitive skin. However, Flavio was so gentle that I didn’t experience any redness after the treatment or pain during the procedure. Their staff is so friendly from the minute you call them to book an appointment to them performing the procedure. They update you with every step of the process so that you are aware of what they are doing to your face. I highly recommend their services they have indeed impressed me and I can’t wait for my next appointment with them. #HappyClient

I have been to other clinics and it is the first time the staff has been amazing, they showed they are actually passionate for what they do and they do care for the patients. I am over the moon with the treatments I received, I can say I’ve got incredible results. Definitely going back to Fiore for future treatments, and highly recommend it. Thank you so much Flavio, truly appreciate your commitment!
Great combination of the new and improved HIFU and new skin pen with ultrasound! Both treatments combined have massively improved the skin texture and lifting of facial contours, not even 24 downtime and virtually painless in my case, loved it! Would definitely recommend this combo or even as separate treatments as I did see big improvements on each session! Also the clinic is always at such high standards and always immaculately presented! Thank you, will be back!


Is the manual Derma Roller procedure safe?

Manual derma roller is a safe procedure, as we ensure that an experienced and qualified practitioner administers it. Each derma roller is strictly for single use and is removed from its secure packaging before each treatment.

Your skin will look red and feel warm, similar to a sunburn sensation. The redness usually lasts between 24 hours and 48hours. Make-up can only be applied after 48hrs.

We have many options for scarring of various types. A consultation is required before we can decide which is the best treatment for your skin type and level of scarring.

You can find Manual Derma Rolling treatments at our clinic based in Covent Garden, London. Give us a call today to make your booking!
