Dermaroller

What is dermarolling?

Dermarolling is a process which uses a tool called a dermaroller. This is a hand roller which is covered in tiny needles that you manually roll over facial skin to create micropunctures. It is commonly used to help the skin care products you use enter deeper into your layers of skin without causing any damage.

What dermaroller should I buy?

There are many derma rollers available on the market, varying in shape, functionality and price. However, as well as purchasing a dermaroller you can pay for this procedure to be carried out at a cosmetic clinic.

We advise that you do carry this procedure out at a cosmetic clinic due to the fact there are different length needles which are used for different types of skin and cases.

Needle lengths

0.25mm: This length is usually used to increase penetration of your skincare products and therefore improve the texture of your skin as well as the colour.

0.5mm: We recommend this length of needle for those with wrinkles or scarring and to thin hair.

1.0 and 1.5mm: The maximum needle length recommended for the face is 1.5mm. These lengths are useful for deep strength marks, cellulite and deep scarring.

2.0, 2.5 and 3.0mm: These needle lengths are for more severe cases which include deep wrinkles, deep scars and the rejuvenation of badly damaged skin.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure generally takes up to 30 minutes per session. However, if there is an anaesthetic applied to numb the skin, that will take an additional 30 minutes to be applied and take effect.

The dermaroller is rolled over the area of skin you wish to treat to produce micro-needle columns. These columns will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and close rapidly to ensure the skin recovers quickly but efficiently.
