The story of Derma Rolling

Not sure what Derma Rollers and Micro Needling are or what they can do for you despite hearing a lot of chatter about them? So settle in and continue reading to learn literally everything there is to know about derma rolling, including whether or not it is right for your skin type and how frequently you should use one.

What does a Derma Roller actually do?

Derma Rollers are handheld, non-invasive devices that roll across the skin’s surface while puncturing it with 540 microfine needles, or hundreds of tiny needles, each measuring just a few hundredths of an inch.

These microscopic wounds cause the body to deliver collagen and other skin-protecting molecules to the skin’s surface. This rush of skin-supporting building blocks boosts complexion, reduces the appearance of scars, and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (amongst countless other benefits we’ll get to).

If you use topical at home skincare treatments (such as serums, essences, and elixirs).. you need to be using a Derma Roller.

Derma rolling increases product delivery and absorption when applied to the skin’s surface. Although the skin can absorb some of the products we apply to its surface, at-home derma rollers with needles smaller than 0.15mm have recently been shown to assist in delivering ingredients like lipopeptides and other anti-aging compounds to the skin’s deeper layers. The deep-reaching potential of micro needling increases the effectiveness of topical products (but it also means we should use appropriate, high-quality serums on our skin after rolling).

According to studies, using a Derma Roller helps to:

  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Increase delivery of healing nutrients
  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decrease the appearance of stretch marks
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Improve the skin’s texture

Can Derma Rolling be compared to treatments like fillers or botox?

By enhancing the skin’s intrinsic intelligence, Derma Rolling promotes a healthy complexion and combats the signs of aging, eliminating the need for fillers and Botox. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced by increasing the skin’s natural collagen production, and the skin regains its youthful, vibrant glow. It really is that easy to use, and the derma roller has the ability to completely transform your skin (and safely).

We hear you. Many people wonder if a self-applied skin method can truly be that successful because it appears like a great promise. Modern technology has made it possible, so absolutely. It’s no secret that the world is changing faster than it ever has before due to a continuously expanding body of knowledge in the fields of science and technology. The applications of such research are vast, and skincare applications are no exception. With more people prioritising convenience, opting for natural solutions, and doing their own research, beauty brands are evolving quickly to meet demand. The result? New products that take a different approach. Enter the Derma Roller.

Derma Rolling is a more affordable approach to radiant skin than fillers.

Botox and fillers must be paid for individually, of course, but choosing an at-home derma roller is a longer-term investment. A derma roller can last six to eight months with proper care. Derma rolling provides a considerably more alluring and long-lasting return on investment at a price that is nowhere near that of expensive injections.

The Derma Roller reduces the appearance of scars and signs of ageing, revealing your natural radiance.

Sometimes, even when our skin already glows, it’s the obstinate scars and age indicators that prevent us from appreciating and embracing our genuine beauty. The derma roller minimizes the appearance of scars and persistent markings by inflicting tiny micro-wounds that trigger the body’s natural healing process. Our complexion gets better, and the appearance of fine lines and scars lessens as collagen rushes to the surface and new growth is induced. The derma roller is excellent for acne scars since it breaks down scar tissue and aids in the body’s natural healing process.


Derma Roller Myths

With some of the most frequently asked questions we receive concerning Derma Rollers and Micro Needling, we are about to debunk some myths in front of you.


  1. Does Derma Rolling Hurt?
    To a significant extent, this will depend on you, however for the majority of us, Derma Rolling is not uncomfortable.
    If it hurts, though, you might be pushing too firmly or your skin might be sensitive. You should expect to feel the micro needles on your skin if you are new to derma rolling when you gently massage the derma roller over your face. It’s usual to get a mild tingling sensation after rolling; this is similar to a sunburn. After derma rolling, be careful to use a nourishing serum.
  2. Is Derma Rolling a Daily thing?
    Not at all.. We advise using your derma roller once per week to begin with then, if your skin is up to it, twice per week once your routine is established. We do not advise daily use of your Derma Roller.
  3. Derma Rolling is considered not safe
    If you follow the recommendations and don’t have any skin disorders like active acne, psoriasis, or eczema, the derma Roller is completely safe to use. It is made from high grade medical titanium.
  4. The results are instant.
    Although you might notice a reddening of the skin right away (because to the micro-punctures), you won’t immediately glow after using a Derma Roller. It may take a few weeks for real results to become apparent.

    Applying weekly will get you there. Several users of the derma roller report seeing benefits right away. But one of the major advantages of utilizing a derma roller is that it penetrates deeper layers of the skin to encourage the development of new cells and disintegrate scar tissue. Because our skin regularly sheds its outer layer over time, it can take weeks for skin cells in deeper levels to rise to the surface.The depth of scars and wrinkles and the degree to which hyperpigmentation is an issue causes the time until real results appear to vary greatly. Weekly treatments keep you on the path towards more profound transformation. Patience is a virtue.
