Dermarollers (medical micro-needling) are made of many tiny needles which roll over and penetrate the skin’s upper surface painlessly. The microholes made in the skin stimulate collagen growth which improves the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars. They may also allow the transdermal application of cosmeceuticals (link to dictionary term above), allowing these products to be absorbed more deeply and effectively. Dermaroller is also known as medical micro-needling, skin rolling or natural collagen induction therapy (CIT).

Medical microneedling will typically cause the following results in your skin:

  • soften fine lines
  • help tighten the skin and restore elasticity
