Dermaroller Treatment - Nottingham, GB

I'm currently booked in for a consultation for Dermaroller treatment next week.
I've got moderate acne scarring that basically makes my face look like an old leather purse.
This is purely from messing about with my spots when I was younger.
I still get the odd outbreak but nothing major and I thought I was time to do something about it.
I'll keep people updated on the process and I'd like it if people could reassure me of this procedure as I always think the worse when I'm apprehensive about something.

Cost

Does anybody use or have used human growth factor serums? If so, which ones were used that worked?

Consultation

Had my consultation today with a senior practitioner with 20 years experience in aesthetic surgery.
She said that they are fazing out Dermaroller and my best option would be to have dermapen treatment x3.
3 treatments will cost around £900.
It may sound a lot, but personally I'd rather pay more and have a professional do it, than go to some back street bodge artist.
She was very confident that the treatment will work with my condition.
She also explained about how cleansing and hydrating my skin was important too.
I purchased some sensitive skin wash and some hydrating matte moisturiser.
I've got to use these for two weeks so any spots that I've got should hopefully clear up before my second consultation next Friday.

Consultation before procedure

I went to my last consultation before my dermapen treatment today.
The nurse explained everything thoroughly and put my mind at ease about the procedure.
She sounded really positive about the the realities of what can be achieved with 3 treatments as apparently my skin isn't as bad as what I think it is!
I'm still a bit apprehensive about it, which I presume is normal, but I am booked in for the 21st of October for my first course.
There was an offer on as well which reduced the total price from £910 to £780 which I think is pretty good.
Roll on the 21st I say..

1st Dermapen Treatment complete!

Ok, so had my first treatment today, I was really looking forward to it as it's been a long time coming.
The procedure was straightforward, numbing cream for half an hour then the Dermapen part.
The nurse was really informative and explained everything as she was doing it.
She used the Dermastamp system and went to 1.5 mm on my cheeks and less on my forehead and nose as you can adjust the depth as you go along for different parts of the face.
It was pretty red and hot afterwards, but 3 hours after it is starting to subside quite a bit.
It'll be interesting to see what it's like tomorrow morning.
Next session is booked for December 2nd, I'll upload some more pics as we get closer to that point to see what if any improvement has happened.

Pre procedure, so far the service has been excellent.
