Dermarolling therapy is a hand-held device with a barrel covered with ultra-fine micro needles. It has spikes which are designed to create holes or micro channels in the skin. So, why do you have to consider this therapy?
Aficionados of dermarolling treatment and even literature of micro needling therapy confirms that it helps stimulate the skin to activate its repair mechanisms.

The catch is, even if you have the worst skin condition, or you have an aging skin, it can still provide beneficial effects.
How is this possible? Derma rollers work by creating thousands of tiny holes in the dermis which induce the skin to produce new elastin and collagen. This will eventually generate new skin cells which will result to a firmer, younger and better-looking skin.
The treatment per se is generally painless. You may use a topical anesthetic cream to make your skin numb. Then roll the device quickly across the face, on a back and forth direction. Most aficionados would agree that they can hardly even feel the rollers in their skin, that’s how tiny and painless the micro needles are!

Some may use moisturizer for the traumatized skin while, other use topical antibiotic creams to prevent any infection which rarely happens.
