Collagen is an important protein responsible for the strength and elasticity of our skin. Unfortunately as time passes, the levels of collagen present in our skin decrease, causing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and propelling the visual ageing process. Dermarolling or skin needling is a popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is a minimal fuss option for those who would like to renew or rejuvenate the skin for a cleaner, smoother look.
If you would like to improve the complexion of your skin or treat it for any form of skin pocking or damage such as acne scarring, chicken pox scarring, or stretch marks then skin needling could be the answer to your problems.

By using a Dermaroller®, a number of micro needles are gently rolled across the skin in order to create tiny injuries. These micro injuries encourage the skin to heal itself, which includes an increased production of collagen. Don’t worry though – as the needle columns shallowly enter the dermis of the skin, there is no long lasting visual effect from the micro needling.
The pain associated with a dermaroller® treatment is directly related to the length of the micro needles. Starting at 0.2mm, you will experience a mild tingling sensation but nothing near pain or discomfort. As the length of the needle increases so does the related sensation however you can rest assured that you will never experience more than you are prepared for.
