Derma-Rolling: the Secret to Flawless Skin

After finally clearing my skin of acne (thanks to ditching skimmed milk), I realised I wanted to try to get the best complexion of my life. I wanted a treatment that would minimise fine lines and pores, plump the skin, fade pigmentation and soften fine lines. All signs pointed to the derma-roller, a form of collagen induction therapy. It’s a handheld device that resembles a mini concrete roller with needles sticking out of it. To say it wouldn’t look out of place in a torture scene played out on Game of Thrones is about right. But had I read past the skin-boosting promises? No, I hadn’t. I had no idea what I was in for when I visited David Jack, MD, on Harley Street to try it out for myself.
