A Derma Roller is a skin care device used to help rejuvenate the skin, treat acne scarring, and reduce signs of aging.
How it Works
When the Dermaroller is rolled over the skin, the small, fine needles on the roller puncture the skin.
When the skin is punctured, this creates a controlled skin injury. It does not cause actual damage to the outer layer of skin. The needles help to break down any scar tissue.
The controlled injuries to the skin lead to superficial bleeding. This triggers the body’s wound healing response, and the following occurs:
Over the next 5 days, the collagen produced by the body is deposited in the area of treated skin. This helps the skin to become firmer and may reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.

After using the Derma Roller, a person can apply serums or moisturisers to their skin. The treatment is often used as a delivery system to maximize the effects of these lotions.
You should avoid a Derma Roller if you have a history of blood-clotting problems, or are using accutane or other medical treatments.
Derma Rollers should not be used on areas of skin that have eczema, sunburn, or cold sores. Anywhere there are moles, skin inflammation, or rosacea should also be avoided.
