How to Use a Hydra Needle
Not all Hydra Needles are created equal. When purchasing your Hydra Needle (also known as a Hydra Stamp), take note that these come in different brands, so consider the quality, reviews, and product description when browsing. Alternatively, you might come across a product called the “Hydra Roller”. Hydra Needles are similar to microneedling pens, while Hydra Rollers are similar to derma rollers, so choose which one you’re more comfortable working with.
If you find Hydra Needles with different needle lengths, avoid getting those equipped with 2-millimeter needles or longer. This is not recommended for at-home use and can cause extensive scarring. Many Hydra Needles are sold individually, but given that Hydra Needles are disposable and only last a few uses before the needles go dull, it might be more practical to buy in larger quantities.
Preparing Your Skin
Before you can start microneedling, it’s important that you check whether or not you’re suitable for microneedling use. Anyone can do microneedling, but if any of these apply to you, we highly recommend you don’t until these issues clear up.
People with active bacterial infections on their skin. This includes acne cysts, staph infections, psoriasis, eczema, and others. This also includes people who are seeking treatment for these infections but are not fully healed. If you proceed with microneedling, there’s a risk that bacteria can enter the microchannels and cause a deeper infection.
People with a history of poor wound healing. Microneedling relies on your skin’s self-healing mechanisms, so a history of poor wound healing could affect the results.
Women on their periods. Your skin is more sensitive right before and during your period, so wait until after your period ends to perform microneedling to avoid making your treatment more painful.
Otherwise, it’s time to start preparing your skin!
Wash your face thoroughly with warm water and a gentle cleanser, then pat dry with a clean towel.
This step is optional, but those with sensitive skin types might have difficulty tolerating the puncturing, apply a topical numbing cream or any over-the-counter topical product to your face. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes, or as directed on the product description.
Using a clean cotton pad or cotton ball, gently wipe your face with 70% isopropyl alcohol solution. This is to cleanse your skin and prevent bacterial infection. Wait for the alcohol to dry before you begin microneedling.
Preparing Your Hydra Needle
Next, let’s prepare your microneedling device. Keep in mind that the Hydra Needle and the Hydra Roller are different (the Hydra Needle is closer to a microneedling pen, while the Hydra Roller is more like a derma roller), and cleaning the Hydra Roller head can be different.
Whether you’re using your Hydra Needle for the first time or you’re reusing it, it’s a good practice to disinfect Hydra Needle. Fill a container with enough rubbing alcohol solution to submerge your Hydra Needle’s parts. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then take it out and let it dry completely.
Add your serum of choice into the applicator vial. You can use any serum, but keep in mind that serums with thicker consistencies can be difficult to dispense during the procedure. Some serums you can consider include hyaluronic acid (for skin hydration), vitamin C (for dull skin), and any serum that promotes anti-aging treatments, but you can opt to use your favorite product as long as its consistency can provide optimal delivery.
Attach the microneedling head to the applicator vial. Remove the cap before application.
Using the Hydra Needle
Make sure you are in a clean environment before beginning the procedure.
When using the Hydra Needle, make sure you are laying down or at least tilting your head back. The device should be vertical so that the serum dispenses evenly on all the needles and has optimal delivery.
Start at the top of your face and make your way down to ensure an even treatment throughout your face.
When stamping the Hydra Needle, make sure the needles are perpendicular to your skin surface. If you do this, the microchannels will be thin and minimal. If you puncture your skin at an angle, the microchannels are wider and more prone to bleeding and scarring.
Use even pressure every time you stamp the Hydra Needle. Continue downwards in an organized fashion to ensure every portion of your face is punctured uniformly and evenly.
After you’ve finished puncturing, if you still have serum on your face after the treatment, rub it gently into your skin for better absorption.
Rinse your face with clean water (don’t use soap or any cleanser) and pat dry.
No downtime is needed for at-home microneedling, but keep in mind that your skin may feel sensitive to the touch for a few days after treatment. At-home microneedling shows huge improvements on your skin with weekly or bi-weekly use.
Cleaning Your Hydra Needle
Disassemble your Hydra Needle and wash all the parts with dishwashing soap. This can remove residual blood and remaining skin tissue on your Hydra Needle.
Soak the cap, needle attachment, and vial with alcohol for 10 minutes.
Let your Hydra Needle components completely dry before storing it.
If your Hydra Needle is a single-use device, replace the cap of the Hydra Needle and dispose of the microneedling tool properly. For Hydra Needles that can be used multiple times, check if the needles are dull; if it is, dispose of your Hydra Needle. Otherwise, you can start cleaning your Hydra Needle.
Hydra Needles are fairly easy to use. Although similar to automatic microneedling pens, Hydra Needles are more affordable and have the advantage of dispensing serums into your skin while the microchannels are still fresh. This gives you the maximum benefit of both your skin’s natural response of increased collagen production as well as the benefits from the serum of your choice.

Amniotic Fluid Allograft (AmDropTM)
The Vaney Hydra Needle is a revolutionary single-use microneedling/microchanneling device used to inject a variety of serums into the skin. The sterile vial holds a signature “cocktail” prepared especially for each patient based on that individual’s skin concerns. This “cocktail” is then infused through 20 gold tip needles to produce optimal delivery of serums into the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Many patients notice a skin plumping and brightening effect immediately but results are usually seen 3-7 days after treatment and typically last approximately 3-4 months (depending on the condition being treated, your lifestyle, and overall skin quality).
HOW OFTEN CAN I GET IT DONE?
This procedure can be done as often as every 1-3 months, as doing several treatments throughout the year will continue to improve long term skin quality. We find that Hydraneedle treatments work best in a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost of the treatment is determined by the cocktail, which may include ingredients like: hyaluronic acid, your own PRP (platelet rich plasma), and neuromodulators (i.e. Botox, Xeomin, etc).

The Vaney Hydra Needle used by dermatologists increases how much serum you absorb by 80%, while stimulating collagen to generate new skin – effectively treating your wrinkles, discolouration and acne scars from just 3 sessions.
This will change how you do skincare
Did you know that only 4-8% of your serums and creams actually penetrate according to research. Here’s the problem you really face. You have a thick outer layer of skin that acts as a barrier to dirt and bacteria, and unfortunately, all of your skincare products. This means, no matter how much money you spend, you’ll be stuck dealing with wrinkles, lax skin, discolouration and old acne scars, unless you stop slathering skincare products over this dead skin layer.
The Hydra Needle is a device that treats your skin conditions in an entirely different way. The high quality bottle dispenses your serums, while tinie 24 karat gold-plated microneedles create channels in your skin that get ingredients where they’re needed to really be effective. Doing this even tricks your body into starting it’s healing process to create new glowing skin. At clinics, this treatment costs 1000s, that’s why this device has been custom made for your easy personal use.
How it works
The device has 20 small micro-needles that only go up to 0.6mm and are thinner than a human hair. When dotted on the skin they create pathways that lead your products directly past your outer skin layer. In other words, they don’t penetrate far enough to be a risky procedure or cause pain, but far enough to get important ingredients into your skin and make your serums actually work. In fact, it increases absorption by up to 80%.
Needles 0.5mm and above can also delve into the second layer of skin triggering your body’s wound healing response, at which point the following occurs: (1) The skin releases substances that stimulate growth, leading to new healthy skin being created, (2) the skin starts to produce more collagen leading to fewer wrinkles and much firmer skin.
Benefits for your skin
Tackles all signs of ageing
Microneedling can lead to a 400% rise in collagen, something we know greatly reduces wrinkles and works wonders for loose or thinning skin. It’s actually the secret of many celebrities. You may have heard of 40 year old Kim Kardashian’s vampire facials, this is a type of microneedling procedure. You’ll be able to use your Hydra Needle anywhere to reap these benefits, including crows feet, ‘laughter lines’, the chest, neck and back of your hands.
Improve the overall look of your skin
Thanks to its ability to speed up the production of collagen, elastin and growth factors, microneedling can repair and rejuvenate the overall look of your skin. In fact, a study in the International Journal of Dermatology labelled microneedling as the new way to achieve “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodelling” adding that it offers a “simple and effective treatment for photo-aged skin”.
Fades acne scarring
Microneedling has been found to fade acne scars for all skin types. These scars are often quite rooted in the skin’s layers that the micro-needles are able to reach. When the skin is pricked, the needles help to break down any scar tissue. In another study on the effects of microneedling nearly 100% of acne-scarred participants reported a significant improvement in their scars.
Remove skin discolouration
Microneedles treat hyperpigmentation by normalising pigment cells, peeling the skin and increasing the effects of lightening ingredients like vitamin C. It even has a positive impact in the treatment of melasma, a skin condition that appears as blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation.
Reduce pore size
Another benefit of microneedling is that it helps pores appear smaller. As it stimulates collagen in and around your pores, it causes them to appear plump and reduced.
The top benefits of this wonder treatment
The Hydra Needle is the only home microneedling device that allows you to benefit from microneedling, and insert your serums at the same time to ensure faster and immediate absorption of active ingredients.
The Hydra Needle is an easy treatment that comes with no downtime, just some short-term redness. The micro-holes created also close within 24 hours, meaning you continue resume applying make-up and other products by the next day.
The thin short nature of the 0.25mm needles means you feel no pain at all. With the 0.5 and 0.6mm needles, some experience enough discomfort that they want numbing cream – but don’t worry; you can get this from any drug store or on Amazon. Using our short needle lengths means pain-free treatments, and that means you are far more likely to stick to a regiment, get more effective sessions in, and see real results.
Full control over your treatment
This device allows for real personalised treatment. You get to choose the serum based on your skincare needs, how many micro-channels you want to create (tens or hundreds), whether to target only your problem areas or the whole face and the right pressure to use based on your tolerance level.
Why it’s become the go to device
Simple to use
The Hydra Needle is incredibly simple to use, and only requires dotting the device on the skin. It also automatically controls the penetration depth, which is why you don’t need to be a professional to use it. This means you can skip the learning curve and avoid unnecessary side effects.
Better with small areas
The device was made to be small enough to get to hard to reach areas such as: above the lip, the nose area, around the eyes and the forehead. Essentially, this means you can use it on all the areas you worry about.
Treats the entire body
Microneedling can be done on the entire body, including the arms, back, legs and face.
Safe and high quality materials used
The needles on this device are made of strong titanium, and plated with 24K gold, a metal with natural anti-inflammation properties.
Why the Hydra Needle is better than the alternatives
Less trauma to the skin than derma rollers
Studies have found that derma rollers cause unnecessary damage to skin. Due to its cylinder shape, the needles are exiting and entering at an angle, which creates tearing around the holes. With the upgraded Hydra Needle, the needles are entering straight down, so the holes are only as wide as the very fine needles. This means a significantly faster healing time.
Results without the risky injections
This device is a great option for those who want clinic-like results but are phobic of long needles, don’t want risky surgical procedures or who want that natural ‘not had work done’ look. Even dermatologists are using this to deliver botox, vitamin c and other top ingredients. For you, this means getting the main benefits of a popular clinic treatment affordably and at home.
Safer than lasers (for all skin types)
Microneedling works in much the same way laser treatments do, but instead, you’re injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light. This means there’s less risk of hyperpigmentation for all skin types. In fact, research in the journal Dermatologic Surgery found both laser treatments and microneedling to be comparably effective but gave credit to microneedling for being better tolerated, with fewer side effects and less downtime.
Far more evidenced than jade rollers
Jade rollers may help with puffiness (due to being cold) and improve circulation (due to massaging motions), but there is no scientific research backing them, and thus, they are not recommended or used by professionals. Microneedling devices, on the other hand, have extensive research proving their effectiveness, and are common treatments at clinics.
Be sure to sterilise your device before and after EACH use.
If you’re using a length of 0.5mm and over, you’ll also need to wipe down your face with 70% isopropyl alcohol before the microneedling process. You can do this after applying numbing cream if you require it.
Never use excessive pressure while microneedling. Be gentle (similar to pressing the button on an elevator). Some pressure is good, but more is not necessary better.
If you’d like to stamp further in, hold the skin taut.
Serums have different viscosity and this influences how well they exit your device. Try to choose a serum that does not have a thick texture.
Also note, the faster you stamp the Hydra Needle, the more serum will be dispensed. If you find that your serum is not being released adequately, lightly shake the Hydra Needle, or angle slightly.
Avoid needling around the eye area with any needle length longer than 0.25mm, and go over this area incredibly lightly.
Also tread lightly around the forehead where the skin is thinner and around the jawline where it’s easier to scar.
Never drag the Hydra Needle across your skin as this can lead to scratches.
Do not use irritating products, such as chemical exfoliates e.g. salicylic acid and lactic acid, active ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, retinol or tretinoin ect during or after treatment. Experts advise stopping such treatments 4 days before microneedling.
Avoid wearing makeup, sunscreen and tanning lotion immediately following treatment, as these were not designed for deep penetration.

If you look in the mirror and see something you’d like to improve about your skin — whether it’s minimizing scars, reducing wrinkles, evening out skin tone, or simply achieving a more radiant glow — microneedling could be the answer.
At first, it may seem strange to roll hundreds of tiny needles over your skin. But that’s exactly what microneedling devices — a.k.a. derma rollers — do, and these handheld tools have made a name for themselves in the beauty world as a DIY solution to a variety of cosmetic skin woes.
While not tons of research has been done on their effectiveness just yet, dermatologists do seem to agree that derma rollers can stimulate collagen production and, in turn, improve the appearance of skin. The practice of microneedling started in dermatologists’ offices, but now, derma rollers are widely available for at-home use, too. Based on customer feedback and guidelines from dermatologists, we recommend some derma rollers you can safely use at home to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots, and more. And since these options have thousands of positive reviews between them from real users, you can trust that they’ll be effective for a variety of skin concerns.
What Should Derma Rollers Be Used For?
Derma rollers can help minimize and prevent fine lines from becoming visible or deeper on the face, neck, and chest. Along with promoting the production of collagen and elastin for smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin, they can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars or stretch marks and even to stimulate hair growth. If your concern is aging, dark spots, or acne scars, a derma roller could be helpful.
Compared to in-office treatments, at-home derma rollers generally use smaller needles (usually around .25 millimeters in depth) to minimize the chance of any potential complications, says Dr. Avaliani. She adds that microneedling procedures performed by doctors are typically much more aggressive, so if you’re looking for faster or more noticeable results, you may be better off booking an appointment with a dermatologist, esthetician, or plastic surgeon.
Possible Side Effects of Derma Rollers
While these versatile beauty tools may seem like a great simple addition to your skincare regimen, it’s important to note that they’re not for everyone. You shouldn’t use derma rollers at home if you have sensitive skin, eczema, cold sores, actively infected acne, sunburn, or rosacea.
You should also avoid them if you have a compromised immune system or you’re taking medications that suppress your immune system, including medications for autoimmune diseases like lupus or psoriasis.
And most importantly, if you’re not using your derma roller properly or keeping it clean, you could put yourself at risk for bleeding, bruising, and peeling, or even infection.
How to Use Derma Rollers at Home
It’s best to start slowly, even once a month can be very effective. If your skin tolerates the derma roller well, you can work up to using it weekly.
The needles — and your skin — must be washed and disinfected appropriately before and after each treatment. We recommends spraying the device with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) solution and washing it with warm water to sterilize before each use. Proper maintenance is also extremely important: Examine the needles carefully to make sure they’re not bent, broken, or rusty, and don’t hesitate to replace your derma roller or its heads whenever necessary.
Once you’ve ticked all the safety boxes, it’s time to get started. Using mild pressure, roll the device back and forth horizontally, vertically, and diagonally over the areas of skin you’d like to treat. After use, you’ll want to be gentle with your skin and avoid topical products that could cause any potential irritation. Final tips? Always buy a high-quality derma roller from a retailer you trust and choose options that come in sterile packaging.
Now that you know how derma rollers work and the correct way to use them, keep scrolling to explore the ones that come recommended by the pros and have earned rave reviews from customers.
If you think you’d rather run a marathon, untrained, in the heat of summer, without bike shorts or an anti-chafe stick than use a tool with needles on your face, we hear you. But before you lace up those sneaks, listen up: the tool with tiny needles is painless (no, really!) and can give you some major skin benefits.
The treatment is called microneedling or derma rolling, and it involves a tool with super tiny needles that is rolled over the face or body, which causes microscopic holes in the top layer of your skin. This “precise injury,” as the pros call it, stimulates elastin and collagen, both of which keep your skin firm—but the naturally-occurring stuff is lost as we age.
You can get microneedling treatments done in-office with a dermatologist or esthetician, or there are at-home tools. While in-office treatments are more potent, the process is similar. “With microneedling, tiny needles are gently pressed with even pressure against the skin and undetectable micro-wounds are created, which triggers skin to go into repair mode and produce more collagen.
At-home devices don’t penetrate as deeply as professional treatments since the needles are generally only 0.25 millimeters in depth. In comparison, needles used for in-office procedures tend to be 0.5 millimeters to 1 millimeter. And, you don’t have to worry about at-home derma rollers being painful—since the needles are smaller, it will just feel a bit prickly, and it can be uncomfortable if you apply too much pressure.
How do you use a derma roller?
When using a derma roller, first split your face into four quadrants, addressing one section at a time. Using mild pressure, roll the device back and forth horizontally, vertically, and diagonally over the areas of the skin you’re treating. Usually, I suggest two to four passes in each direction. In terms of adding products into the mix, she says you can apply a serum either before or directly after using your derma roller. Be sure to always roll on a clean, dry face, and finish off with a hydrating or nourishing skincare product.
How do you clean a derma roller?
Vaney recommends washing your roller with warm water and then spraying it with a rubbing alcohol spray before its first use. We also suggests washing and disinfecting your roller after each treatment, and again before you reuse it.
How often should you use a derma roller?
Start by using it once a month, and then work your way up to weekly depending on your skin type or if you have an associated skin problem. Also important: A derma roller shouldn’t be used on active acne, rosacea, eczema, cold sores, or sunburned or infected skin.
Let’s talk dermarollers, shall we? You’ve got a few different types of microneedling tools out there, like dermastamps or dermapens, but arguably the most popular tools for at-home dermarolling? Dermarollers (surprise). These tools might look like your average face roller, but look closer, and you’ll notice that the roller head is actually covered in short, teeny-tiny little needles that, when rolled across your skin, create tiny holes that help improve the way your skin looks and feels.
Now, I don’t know about you, but there’s something about rolling hundreds of needles across my face that gives me the heebie-jeebies—and that’s coming from someone who has tried (and loved) microneedling with PRP. But the idea of doing it by myself? Hard to get behind. The results of microneedling are convincing enough for me to work up the courage, but would I even be able to get the same results with at-home dermarollers? That, my friends, is the question we’re here to answer.
So to help us demystify dermarollers, we turned to the experts. Ahead, all the answers to your questions about the spikey lil skincare tools, plus the best dermarollers worth giving a try.
It’s the multi-tasking beauty treatment that can target everything from Vaney and dull skin to acne scarring, stretch marks and even hair loss—all without going under the knife. Enter: derma-rolling.
On the scene since the mid-’90s, derma-rolling or microneedling has gained serious traction over the last few years (albeit in part thanks to some pretty intense YouTube videos) but also due to major advancements in the technology which means you can now do it yourself at home.
What Is Derma-rolling?
Derma-rolling involves the use of micro-needles which makes microscopic incisions in the skin as “trauma” which then causes the skin to go into “repair mode” by stimulating collagen production. Sounds pretty intense, but it’s actually not as scary as you think.
Following the treatment, the skin’s absorption is amplified which means your products will work even harder for you.
What is a Derma-roller?
A Derma-roller is, you guessed it, the tool used to perform Derma-rolling or microneedling. Once only performed by professionals in a salon, these days there are numerous tools on the market which means you can DIY at home.
Who Should Be Using A Derma-roller?
Derma-rolling is recommended for most skin types however those with highly-sensitive skin or breakouts should avoid the treatment.
We do not recommend using the roller on highly sensitive skin or broken out skin. This could potentially cause more irritation on an already irritated area.
Are There Different Types Of Derma-rollers Or Does One Work For All Skin Types?
Derma-rollers are suitable for all skin types (except, as mentioned above, those sensitive or broken out skin should not use them).
What Results Can You Expect From Derma-rolling?
This tool helps to remove dull, dead skin cells through exfoliation, leaving the surface of the skin smoother and more refined. It maximizes the effectiveness of the products used with it for visibly refined tone, texture and firmness.
Are all derma-rollers created equal? What should you be looking out for when buying one?
Not all derma-rollers are created equal.
If you are looking for an exfoliating derma-roller, what is most important is the quality of the tips and the smoothness of the roll over the skin. Our AMP MD has been designed with laser cut tips to ensure quality and precision and has been ergonomically designed to ensure a smooth roll over the skin.
Where And How Should You Use A Derma-roller?
For best results, Stoddard recommends using a Derma-roller three times a week at night after applying your toner and then once you’ve tested the product a few times and your skin’s reaction to it, you can increase the frequency to nightly.
Roll with moderate, comfortable pressure over the entire face and neck with 4-10 passes. For best results, divide the face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, and neck) and treat each section before continuing to the next.
We recommend following with our Intensive Renewing Serum – take one of the capsules and smooth the serum slowly onto skin. It feels like magic!
Is Derma-rolling Safe For Pregnant And/Or Breastfeeding Women?
While Derma-rolling is generally considered to be safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, however hormonal changes in the body during these times can cause skin to be extra sensitive to caution is recommended.
Stoddard says Derma-rolling with the AMP-MD roller is safe for all users however she recommended speaking with your doctor before undergoing any new treatment or using any new products as each pregnancy is unique.
Is There Anything To Know Before Trying Derma-rolling At Home?
Proper storage of your derma-roller is critical to ensure hygiene and prevent bacteria from forming. Most rollers will come with a cap, so ensure this is sealed after each use.
This is to protect the micro-exfoliating tips from the wear and tear of everyday use.
Does home microneedling really work?
We’ve got studies upon studies to back up microneedling as an effective in-office treatment for everything from atrophic acne scars to melasma, but what about at-home dermarolling, you ask? While highly effective, microneedling for home and office can vary. Devices for home usage are usually less invasive with more shallow needles for a more surface-level penetration. Basically, less intense and less dramatic.
Search around, and you’ll hear and see plenty of testimonials of how an at-home dermaroller can help improve acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, skin tone, and pore size (see: best-case scenarios). But technically, the benefits of at-home microneedling—sometimes called dermarolling or cosmetic needling—are limited to exfoliation and the improvement of the skin’s look and feel. Essentially, you can expect smoother, more exfoliated skin, but hopefully be a best-case scenario.
For what it’s worth, only professional, medical-grade microneedling devices have been FDA-cleared as safe and effective for acne scars and wrinkles, while at-home microneedling tools and dermarollers are not considered medical devices and are not regulated by the FDA. Again, that doesn’t mean they’re automatically bad or dangerous, but it does mean that you should proceed with some caution.
Can microneedling ruin your skin?
As you can imagine, contamination, infection, or skin barrier damage are always risks when rolling needles across your face, which is why the experts stress the importance of disinfecting your dermaroller with isopropyl alcohol, storing it properly, regularly replacing the roller or roller head, and using it correctly with the proper pressure. I recommend home usage of dermarollers, but with great caution and care, while also stressing the importance of keeping your roller clean and sanitized.
When dermarolling is done incorrectly, you can destroy your skin, but when it’s done correctly, the results can be outrageously good.
How to choose the best dermaroller:
When shopping for a dermaroller, there’s one main feature you want to focus on: the needles. They can be made from titanium or stainless steel, and are available in a range of different lengths. Although you can find facial dermarollers online with needle lengths between 0.5mm to 1mm (or even longer lengths typically only used by a professional), even a roller with needs as short as 0.2mm would be enough.
Not only is a shorter needle length safer for at-home use, but it’s also more comfortable. Your face is typically numbed up for an in-office treatment, and Benjamin explains that longer lengths are just flat-out too painful to do yourself. You’re not going to end up using it, so you’re not going to get the benefit out of it.
You might also want to consider a tool that has the option to replace the head, so you don’t have to toss the whole thing when it comes time to change it out (something Benjamin suggests doing every month to avoid using dull needles). And the last piece of expert advice is to use a high-quality tool. I would recommend making sure you’re buying from a reputable company and making sure the needle size is appropriate.
Do Derma Rollers Really Work?
Nowadays, plenty of procedures that were once reserved for the dermatologist’s office can be carried out at home.
Microneedling is one of them. The DIY option of this scary-sounding facial technique goes by a different name: derma rolling.
These handheld devices, featuring a roller with row upon row of tiny needles, are way cheaper and more convenient than visiting a pro.
But do they provide the same benefits as traditional microneedling?
What are they used for?
Derma rollers have a number of uses, but the main ones are for improving pigmentation issues and improving the surface of the skin.
Fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation are all said to be diminished with regular derma rolling.
In reality, the above tend to need the help of professional microneedling, which uses longer needles than the at-home version.
However, derma rollers can allow skin care products to penetrate deeper, producing more powerful effects.
Does it hurt?
Rolling hundreds of needles over your face probably won’t be the most relaxing experience, but it shouldn’t hurt.
Of course, the level of discomfort depends on your pain tolerance.
However, it’s the longer needles found in microneedling devices that are likely to cause some pain.
That’s why any decent aesthetician will numb your face beforehand.
Are there any side effects or risks to consider?
Derma rolling is a minimally invasive procedure so as long as you use the right technique in conjunction with the right serum, you’re unlikely to experience side effects.
Some people should avoid derma rolling completely. This includes those with eczema, psoriasis, or a history of blood clots.
People with skin conditions that could easily spread to other parts of the face, such as active acne or warts, should also consult with a healthcare provider before DIYing.
If you’re using retinol, taking Accutane, or have sunburn, you should also be wary.
Experts advise stopping retinol 5 days before derma rolling to avoid an adverse reaction.
When it comes to things like sunburn or inflammation, you can still use a derma roller as long as you avoid affected areas.
How do you pick the right one?
Although you can buy longer needles for at-home use, it’s best to stick to a derma roller with a needle length of less than 0.5 millimeters.
Any needle above this length runs a higher risk of damaging skin and is best left to a pro.
Don’t forget to do your research. Only buy from trusted sites and stores, and check that the product has been properly sterilized before it reaches you.
How do you pick the right serum?
If you do decide to use a serum with your derma roller, choose one that will benefit your face when it penetrates your skin.
Some serum ingredients can cause an adverse reaction if sent further into the skin.
Steer clear of potentially irritating retinol and vitamin C.
These will seal in moisture and assist with the regenerative process that can improve skin tone and texture.
How do you do it?
Thankfully, derma rolling isn’t too complicated to master. Stick to these simple steps for a sterile, effective experience.
To reduce the chance of bacteria transfer, thoroughly cleanse both your skin and the roller. Use gloves if possible.
It’s best to derma roll at night when your skin isn’t susceptible to sun damage.
If you’re sticking to this evening regime, you may want to consider double cleansing to get rid of oil and dirt that’s built up on your skin during the day.
To clean the derma roller, soak it in an alcohol-based solution. Then dry and place on a clean paper towel.
If using a serum with your derma roller, apply the product to your face before getting down to business.
The rolling method involves three parts: vertical, horizontal, and diagonal movements.
Start by rolling the derma roller up and down your forehead, cheeks, and chin, making sure not to apply too much pressure.
Then, switch to horizontal movements followed by diagonal ones. Spend no more than 2 minutes doing this.
Stay away from the eye area and be extra careful on sensitive places such as the nose and upper lip.
After the rolling is complete, apply the same serum again or choose another hydrating or anti-aging product.
Just make sure the ingredients list doesn’t include retinols or vitamin C.
As your skin may be more sensitive after derma rolling, it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen.
You should also avoid wearing makeup, taking hot showers, or exercising for 24 hours afterward.
Always clean your derma roller after each use.
Disinfect it by spritzing with a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol spray, says Dr. Kim Peirano, a specialist in acupuncture and Chinese medicine at Lion’s Heart.
She adds that you can also soak the roller in a once-weekly solution of hot water and a denture cleansing tablet.
Don’t let anyone else use your roller and replace it at least once every 3 months to prevent irritation from dull needles.
How often should you repeat the process?
Start once a week to see how your skin reacts to the needles.
If everything’s looking good, you can increase the frequency to two or three times a week.
Just make sure you aren’t going over the 2-minute limit each time.
When will you see results?
The longer you carry on rolling, the more likely you are to see a difference.
Take stock after 6 to 12 weeks of regular derma rolling.
If you’re trying to improve signs of aging or scarring, it may take months before you see prominent changes.
Results will also depend on age and the amount of elasticity in your skin.
When should you consider in-office microneedling?
Some experts advise always visiting a pro.
If you’re looking to improve fine lines, wrinkles, or scars, it’s definitely worth a trip to the dermatologist’s office.
Their needles can penetrate the skin up to 3 mm, making visible results more likely.
This is compared to derma rollers, which can be more traumatizing to the skin [by creating] larger and fewer holes as the needle enters at an angle and leaves at an angle.
The bottom line
Although Vaney have reported numerous benefits to microneedling, much of the research comes from small studies.
There is even less concrete evidence when it comes to at-home derma rolling — although users generally note positive results.
While the technique deserves further exploration, it’s worth a DIY try if you’re looking to boost your skin care regimen.
If you’re in any way worried about the impact on your skin or looking to combat more complex issues, head to a dermatologist for advice.
Derma roller, a device rolled onto the skin to form micropores, is extensively used for cosmetic purposes. The pores thus created are utilized to either result in the induction of collagen production, leading to glowing and wrinkle-free skin or for permeating the applied formulations to the site of action within the skin. Recent studies have shown the benefits of using derma rollers for transdermal delivery of drugs. In the nascent stage, this approach paves a way to successfully breach the stratum corneum and aid in the movement of medications directed towards the dermis and the hair follicles. The review essentially summarizes the evidence of the use of derma rollers in cosmetic setup, their designing, and the preclinical and clinical reports of efficacy, safety, and concerns when translated for pharmaceutical purposes and transdermal drug delivery.

Derma roller is the new trend to solve hair loss and the regrowth of hair, and there are results to prove it.
Derma rollers are medical devices that need to be used with care and handled hygienically.
Derma rollers really work for your hair growth. Find out how in this article.
What is Derma Roller for Hair?
Derma Roller for hair is highly effective in tackling hair loss, hair growth, and regrowth. It’s a form of micro-needling having tiny needles varying from 0.25mm to 1.5 mm. When you roll the derma roller on your scalp, its needles puncture holes so that the remedial qualities of oils can easily reach the hair follicles.
What is Derma Roller for Men?
Derma roller for men is incredibly helpful in tackling hair loss, hair growth, and beard growth. This has also proved to be extremely effective for hair regrowth. It is a micro-needling form since the roller has tiny needles attached to it.
When you use the derma roller on your scalp, the derma roller’s needles are known to puncture holes.
Wondering why? The roller causes controlled injuries to your scalp’s skin. When your scalp responds to this, the healing process stimulates various hair growth responses.
A derma roller really works for hair growth.

Derma Roller Uses for Hair
If you use your derma roller as a hair treatment, it contributes to preventing your male pattern baldness.
The two primary purposes of a derma roller control hair fall and increase hair growth.
We will tell you how:
Derma Roller for Hair Loss
Derma roller prevents your hair from falling. A derma roller causes tiny punctures only on our scalp’s skin which activates and regenerates hair cells.
Science says that a derma roller, a form of micro-needling, is an effective treatment for hair loss. It boosts collagen production in your scalp, which results in stronger, thicker hair.
To understand the need for stronger, thicker hair for your hair’s health and as a solution to prevent hair loss, let us explain to you the hair stages.
Anagen phase of hair growth: It is part of your hair cycle where hair cells divide rapidly and result in new hair growth.
Telogen Phase of hair growth: The telogen phase is part of the hair cycle where your hair begins to fall. Hair fall is caused by hair follicles prematurely entering a resting phase. The derma roller doesn’t allow your hair to become nutrient deficient and weak.
You can oil your hair after derma rolling for the best derma roller results.
This prevents hair loss as your scalp absorbs higher nutrients and prevents your hair from shedding in the telogen phase. This way, through a derma roller, you can control your hair loss to the extent that it is within the 50-100 strands of everyday hair loss.
Derma Roller for Hair Growth
Derma rollers for hair growth and hair regrowth can be a blessing.
Derma rollers can massage your scalp and increase the blood flow to your scalp.
Research shows that increased blood flow to the scalp results increases hair growth and thickness. Thus helping with hair regrowth.
This means that not only does your hair grow once you start the derma roller hair treatment, but your hair also grows thicker and stronger.
Increased blood flow to the scalp means that the derma roller is benefitting your hair growth by essentially providing your hair follicles with rich oxygen and nutrient supply so that these strands grow more robust and thicker.
The second way that a derma roller helps with hair growth stimulates collagen production.
Collagen prevents hair thinning and supports new hair growth in the anagen phase of hair growth. Collagen thickens around the hair follicles and ensures that your new hair grows strong.
This helps it resist hair shedding in the hair cycle’s catagen phase. Derma rollers are more effective when used with minoxidil. Derma rollers can increase the absorption of topical solutions such as minoxidil.
Which is the Best Derma Roller for Hair?
Online derma roller reviews will tell you about a lot of brands. These derma rollers for men reviews are often confusing and can overwhelm an individual to the extent that they do not act upon their hair loss.
Here are some tips for choosing the best derma roller for hair for yourself:
Keep in mind the needle size of the derma roller.
Needles between 0.25-0.5mm have the best effect on your hair. These microneedles activate your hair growth by puncturing your scalp as much as needed to prevent hair loss and activate hair growth.
Look out for a derma roller with a curved handle to fit your hand.
This helps you get a better grip and helps you put the exact amount of pressure to ensure that the derma roller works.
Look at what the needles are made of.
Derma rollers are an effective hair treatment for hair loss when the needles are designed to solve it. Using titanium alloy microneedles is the most efficient. These needles are designed to pierce your scalp just deep enough to make punctures that prevent hair fall.
Clean your Derma Roller Properly
While this is something, we often overlook, keep in mind that the best derma roller for hair growth will only work when it is clean.
How Long Does it Take to See Derma Roller Results for Hair?
In most cases of using a derma roller for hair growth, men have reported seeing a difference in their hairline within 8-10 weeks. However, it is crucial to understand that derma rolling for hair needs to be integrated and used continuously to get maximum benefits. Patience and regular usage are essential to fighting hair loss using a derma roller for men.
Pro Tip: You can use a derma roller 0.5 mm for hair loss.
How to use Derma Roller for Hair?
Now that you seem to be convinced about the benefits of using a derma roller and have decided to add one to your hair care regimen- the next most obvious question that arises is ” How to use a Derma Roller”?
Which Derma Roller Size is Best for Hair?
Doctors recommend derma roller for hair growth, having needles between 0.5-1.5 millimeters. To tackle hair loss, you can use a derma roller 0.5 mm. Derma roller 1.5 mm helps with stimulating hair growth as it can cause punctures that allow topical and hair oil to penetrate through the scalp better. Tip: Use castor oil after derma rolling your hair.
Does Derma Roller Regrow Hairline?
Yes, the derma roller for hair regrowth helps regain hairline and other kinds of hair loss except for telogen effluvium. The tiny punctures due to derma rolling your scalp activates hair cells and help in regeneration. It further induces collagen production in the scalp, helping in stronger hair growth. This is doctor recommended.
How Often Should you use Derma Roller for Hair Regrowth?
Doctors recommend using derma rollers for hair regrowth every 3-4 weeks because you need to give time for the cells to activate and regenerate. It’s suggested to use a 1.5mm derma roller for hair growth as they have longer needles and penetrate deeper for the cells to activate and help with collagen production in the scalp.
Can I use 0.5 mm Derma Roller Everyday?
No, use 0.5 mm derma roller for hair once every three weeks for best results. You use a derma roller of 0.5 mm for hair loss, and it’s best to give the cells time to activate and regenerate. However, you can use a 0.2-0.25mm derma roller for hair everyday or every alternate day.
Derma Rolling (sometimes known as Micro Needling) is an at home skincare treatment designed to help with everything from hyperpigmentation and dull skin to fine lines and acne scars. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we get about Derma Rolling & Micro Needling.
Get professional derma rolling results at home and enjoy your most radiant skin! Our handheld device contains 540 stainless steel needles that painlessly create hundreds of tiny punctures, increasing blood flow, elastin and collagen production through the healing process. Additionally, skincare product absorption can increase up to 200x faster into the skin. The combination of micro injuries from the fine needles and active ingredients, like hyaluronic acid or vitamin c serum, works to improve uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin appearing more voluminous and plump.
What is Derma Rolling?
Derma Rolling is a process that involves using veeeeeeeery fine needles to puncture thousands of tiny holes into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation (sounds painful, it’s really not) The most popular type of device is known as a Derma Roller and is made up of hundreds (540 to be exact) micro fine needles that are around 2.5mm. These tiny pin pricks gently penetrate the skin surface to kick start collagen production, more on that in a moment…
How Does Derma Rolling Work?
Derma Rolling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. By using the derma roller and it army of tiny needles, you are causing a slight injury to the skin. The skin responds by repairing itself and making new collagen-rich tissue that is more even in tone and texture. What skin conditions does Derma Rolling work on?Derma Rolling treats everything from wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dull skin to fine lines and acne scars.
Does Derma Rolling hurt?
You will feel a slight tingle when using the roller (remember you are gently rolling the needles over your skin) After you are done, your face might feel hot, just like sunburn. If you have sensitive skin, you may feel slightly sore after. Because Micro Needling is non invasive, there is no downtime. We suggest you Derma Roll in the evening and apply your nightly skin care routine (don’t apply make up immediately after Derma Rolling)
Are there any side effects from Derma Rolling?
The most common side effect is minor skin irritation (it will feel like sunburn for most people) You might also seem some redness for a few days. If you are are pregnant or have certain skin conditions (like eczema of psoriasis) or have open wounds/scars you should consult your doctor before Derma Rolling.
How Often Should I be Derma Rolling?
This will largely depend on your skin, how sensitive it is to treatments and if you are already treating your skin with other procedures. After using the derma roller for the first time you will get an understanding to how your skin reacts to this treatment. We recommend starting with using your derma roller once a week and if your skin is up for it, increasing to twice a week after building up your routine. We do not recommend using your Derma Roller daily.
Post Derma Rolling Skin Care
The tiny punctures holes from the needles create “micro channels” that allow your skincare products to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of skin to deliver more powerful results. Studies have shown that Serums can be up to 40% more effective after Micro Needling.Post Derma Rolling skin care should be about hydration (not drying) so make sure you use something like a Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Vitamin C or a luxe facial oil ( like ourPost Derma Roller Serum)
Avoid Retinoids and physical exfoliators. And the sun (of course)

The Micro Glow Derma Roller is made from high quality medical grade Titanium and is perfectly safe to use if you follow our instructions and don’t have any skin conditions like eczema, active acne or psoriasis. Micro Glow is listed with the TGA which means our product meets Australian standards.
Which Size Derma Roller Is Best For At Home Use?
If you are Derma Rolling at home we recommend you use the 0.3mm Derma Roller, anything bigger and you should be seeing a professional.
Derma Rolling: Micro-wounding, Healing & Skin Regeneration
When tissues in our bodies become injured, there is a natural inflammatory response that helps the body repair the injury. If an injury is severe, it can result in chronic inflammation, which causes the wound to heal imperfectly, resulting in scar tissue. A Derma Roller, like a massage, creates a very minor injury to the skin, which generates acute inflammation that can achieve perfect healing.
The science behind Derma Rolling’s anti-aging abilities have much to do with this process. Through Derma Rolling, we can intentionally stimulate the healing process, which arouses skin cell regeneration and regrowth. It works on everything from acne, to severe skin scars that are already riddled with calcification and fibrosis.
There are likely two mechanisms responsible for this:
Calcification Regulation – One of the major benefits of Derma Rolling, and why I got into it, is its profound ability to healing scars. By intentionally inflicting micro-wounds to the skin, the process of calcification (scar tissue) is downregulated. Derma Rolling turns down what are known as “calcification inducers”, while increasing Growth Factor Beta 1 & 2, and also up-regulating calcification inhibitors. Together, this inhibits the further production of scar tissue, reverses it and promotes future healing. This is fantastic news for anyone with scarring issues, be it acne scarring or worse.
Angiogenesis – Also known as the formation of new blood vessels and capillary networks that provide oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells; Derma Rolling aids in this process. This is hugely beneficial to the skin, considering that most aging issues of the skin (wrinkles, pigmentation, sagging) are caused by decreased oxygen and blood flow to the skin cells. But Derma Rolling reverses this process, helping the body produce new blood vessels, and providing starving skin cells with more blood, oxygen and nutrients.
With these primary actions, Derma Rollers are scientifically proven to:
Increase absorption of nutrients from your favorite skincare products – as you Derma Roll, blood circulation to the capillaries in your skin dramatically increases. Therefore, The Alitura Moisturizer, Gold Serum or Clay Mask you use will work even better as the nutrients in them are driven to your skin cells.
Make your skin younger – your skin will not only look younger; it will actually be younger on a cellular level. Microneedling leads to the release of growth factors which stimulate the formation of new collagen (collagen synthesis), and elastin in the papillary dermis. In other words, it renews your skin cells, creating younger, healthier, flawless skin.
Regenerate new skin cells and blood vessels, it’s like a cellular makeover for your skin.
Eliminate scar tissue, stretch marks, cellulite, and minimize pores – along with any other inflammatory issues of the skin, acne and other blemishes.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a safe, quick, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses derma roller technology to improve scarred, sun damaged or aging skin, as well as other skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation.
HOW DOES A DERMA ROLLER WORK?
The Derma Roller tool features tiny, sterile needles that create microscopic puncture wounds in the skin, prompting the natural production of collagen and elastin to heal the micro-injuries.
This form of skin treatment is non-ablative; it does not remove skin layers like chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion do. It can be just as effective and less expensive as these ablative treatments, and the MTS Roller can be purchased at our office for use from the comfort of home!
Our experienced providers offer customized treatment plans and recommend therapeutic serums that can be used in conjunction with the derma roller. Following treatment, serums will be absorbed quickly into the skin to provide maximum, dramatic results.

What to Use After Derma Rolling?
Derma rolling can boost absorption and efficacy with any of Cosmedica’s facial products. Applying a serum or cream can enhance results. If you any apply tropical products, only use products you have previously used alone to ensure they don’t irritate your skin.
Never apply makeup or sunscreen after treatment, they contain ingredients that are not suitable for deep skin absorption.
Irritated skin, infected skin, fungal skin, active acne, rosacea, etc. are not fit for use. Consult a dermatologist before using if you are concerned with and skin condition. If there is any skin sensitivity stop using immediately and consult a doctor or skin specialist. Store the micro-needling system carefully and keep out of the reach of children.
Vaney Derma roller treatment provides advanced medical micro skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating a smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. Derma micro needling significantly improves the appearance of facial, neck and decollete lines and wrinkles, sun damaged and aging skin, acne scars and stretch marks. In fact, when combined with Plasmalite treatments, it provides a ‘double-collagen’ producing effect, both on the superficial epidermal, as well as deeper layers of the dermis. It has never been easier, thanks to the innovative and award-winning non-surgical, skin regenerating Derma Roller treatment.
We use precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing elastin and collagen to repair these micro perforations. The self- repairing property of the skin is 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. Additionally, we add specially selected serums to your skin’s enhanced absorption capabilities for a complete skin renewal treatment that shows immediately!

Stricly used for boosting topical skin care product absorption.
What if we told you that letting hundreds of tiny needles penetrate the surface of your skin could change the way it looks forever!? Surely you’re either scoffing or wincing in pain, two of the most natural reactions we’ve noticed when telling friends, family and colleagues about the powers of a derma roller. But, it’s not as quack as it may sound, and in fact, could be the answer to a huge range of skincare concerns you may have been grappling with for a while.
Will Your Skin Benefit From Using a Derma Roller?
Of course, we’re not asking you to hop straight online and purchase a derma roller without knowing all of the facts, first. Before you get to micro-needling your skin yourself, there are a few things you’ll need to know, including how to maximise efficacy and how to buy the ideal derma roller. Whether you’re a convert or a cynic, keep on reading to find out how you could make a derma roller work for your skin.
What is a derma roller?
A derma roller, AKA a skin needling device, features a cylindrical body attached to a long handle. The cylinder is covered in tons of little needles that individually prick the surface of the skin, creating what are known as ‘micro-injuries’. Simply pick up the handle and roll the body of the device over the skin…well, that’s technically how it works. But, there are a lot of other things to take into consideration before getting rollin’.
We’re not asking you to inflict injury on your complexion for no reason — there are so many benefits to this practice. After micro-injuries are created, skin has to work extra hard to repair the ‘broken’ cells, which in turn accelerates the production of collagen and elastin. These key proteins are produced less effectively as we age, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
Many people are curious about what using a derma roller feels like, and despite the fact that many needles are involved, it’s a lot less painful than you’d think. The thin, short nature of the needles means you’ll barely feel it at all. You may experience slight discomfort or redness after using your derma roller, but at worst, it’ll feel like a mild sunburn.
How will a derma roller benefit me?
As a derma roller encourages collagen and elastin production, it can have benefits that include the softening and blurring of physical ageing signs. It also works wonders for loose or thinning skin, both of which are also directly related to these important natural proteins.
Derma rolling is also beneficial for a range of other skin types, including scarred, dehydrated and hyperpigmented. Regular derma rolling has been found to fade acne scars in particular, as these are often quite rooted in the skin’s layers, which the micro-needles are able to reach. Even if you have acne, you can use a derma roller — just ensure you’re not rolling over active pimples, and are sterilising the needles after every use.
Derma rolling also means that the top layer of your skin is shed in the process, encouraging effective skin cell turnover. This works wonders for those experiencing hyperpigmentation in the form of darkened or lightened spots, as shedding away surface layers ensures the new skin isn’t affected by discolouration.
You can even use your derma roller on your under eye area to plump and smooth away bags, and on the lips to encourage an enviable pout.
What do I look for in a derma roller?
If we’ve sold you on all the benefits of a derma roller, you’re probably excited to get your hands on one. But, it’s not that simple — not all derma rollers were created equal! It can actually be quite dangerous for the skin to use the wrong one, so here are a few things to look out for.
First, ensure your product is entirely reputable. No paying a few bucks off a cheapie site, because at the end of the day, your skin health is seriously important! Generally, you’ll be looking at an investment between $30 and $100 for a quality derma roller, depending on the brand. Don’t splash too much cash, but beware that anything that seems too good to be true probably is.
Another aspect you’ll want to look out for is the needle’s size and thickness. Anything above 0.3mm shouldn’t be used at home, as it can cause damage quite easily when not wielded correctly (AKA, by one of the pros). Opt for an 0.2 or 0.25mm sized needle. You’ll also want to ensure it’s made of a quality material, such as surgical-grade steel or titanium.
What does a skincare routine using a derma roller look like?
To prep skin for using a derma roller, first ensure it’s thoroughly clean by using a cleanser. We recommend double cleansing to truly lift away any dirt and imperfections, especially those from a little deeper in the pores. Next up is an exfoliant or chemical peel, which will help smooth away any excess dead skin and give your skin the perfect canvas for derma rolling.
Then, it’s time to slick on your favourite serum (although, it’s important to know your stuff — more on that later). Apply as you usually would, and then begin rolling across the face, working in all directions. Make sure you’re a little lighter around the under eye area and on the lips, or in any areas where your skin is typically delicate.
Apply a second layer of your serum once you’re done rolling, and that’s it! You’ve successfully derma rolled for the first time. You can repeat this practice a few times a week at the most, but it’s also totally fine to leave it as a once a month or fortnight kinda deal — just do what your skin seems to prefer.
Are there serums I can’t use with a derma roller?
Using a serum is an important part of derma rolling, as the small injuries you’ve made to the skin allow for deeper and more effective absorption of your product of choice. Thus, it’s an excellent way to ensure key vitamins, minerals and antioxidants reach the innermost layers of your skin.
However, there are definitely serums that you shouldn’t use with a derma roller. Anything too potent isn’t designed to reach that deeply into the skin, and so, should be left for those days when you aren’t pricking your face with teeny needles. We’re talking retinol, Vitamin C and anything else that can leave skin feeling raw or peeling a bit. Combining anything of that kind of potency is sure to turn your derma rolling dream into a nightmare, so leave the hard stuff to the pros.
Introducing Derampen, collagen induction skin therapy. Dermapen treats a wide range of skin conditions including acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and fine lines, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.
With just a few treatments you’ll see a noticeable difference in skin tightening, texture appearance, elasticity, and firmness. In fact, 2 to 3 treatments provide a noticeable difference in your skin while 5 to 6 treatments show dramatic results. Treatments are done about 4 weeks apart for best results.
At-home skin rejuvenation treatments have skyrocketed in popularity as an affordable and convenient way to experience clinical skin treatments. And while their efficacy does vary from patient to patient, products like dermapens and derma rollers show that it’s possible to enjoy the benefits of a procedure like microneedling with the user’s convenience.
But what is the difference between dermapens from derma rollers? Both are microneedling devices that help rejuvenate the skin, but the dermapen is a more advanced tool that offers several benefits compared to the dermaroller. Aside from that, derma rollers are more accessible to the public, while dermapens are almost always found in medical and professional settings.
Dermapen is an advanced skin micro-needling system. The electronically powered multiple needles easily penetrate the skin or scar tissue to enhance and stimulate rejuvenation of the skin, while maintaining epidermal integrity and reducing downtime for the patient. The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the speed of the procedure and effectiveness, and provides absorption of medical grade products, with minimal discomfort. This treatment results in an increased production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which in turn improves your skin’s appearance, texture and firmness.
Based on our research there’s a little confusion in the market, so our marketing team suggested we write a piece on this question, even though it is inaccurately said. Dermapen is one of the most expensive microneedling pens on the market. Our Vaney Needle Pen is the most affordable on the market. Both pens do microneedling.
Microneedling of course, is growing ever more popular, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a great treatment option that is compatible with all skin types, whether it’s oily, normal, or combination and safe on any color. It provides the same results and benefits as more invasive procedures like laser or chemical exfoliation without the risks.
If you’re a professional looking for a cost-effective option to the Dermapen that can give you the same benefits to your patients, we recommend Vaney Needle Pen.
If you’re a consumer reading this article and considering the pros and cons of at-home microneedling VS booking an office appointment, and why you might choose one over the other, then keep reading.
A Quick Review on What Is Microneedling
Microneedling is the treatment involving needles to create superficial wounds on the skin. These micro injuries are only-surface level and are not meant to leave any scars or any evidence of the needle pricking your skin.
As intimidating as the procedure might sound, the treatment is specifically designed to boost collagen production and improve cell turnover. Patients report immediate results ranging from a brighter, more youthful-glowing skin to improved skin texture with just one microneedling treatment.
Microneedling has multiple benefits, including:
The acceleration or normalization of collagen production
Smoothing of acne scars and other skin texture problems
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Improvement in the appearance of hyperpigmentation spots
Enhanced complexion and more youthful appearance
Decrease stretch marks and increase hair follicle production
Microneedling cannot be done at home to the degree a professional can in a medical spa or clinic. Professional microneedling treatments are continuously adjusted to penetrate different depths for specific conditions that a special anesthetic must be used by a licensed professional. While there are plenty of products on the market billed as at-home DIY microneedling, consumers can’t legally buy a professional-grade microneedling device for use as part of their skincare regimen at home.
How Microneedling Improves Skin And Treats Wrinkles
Microneedling is a process where tiny puncture wounds are made on the upper dermis of the skin. As the skin heals, the area experiences greater amounts of blood flow. This brings much-needed nutrients to the area, increasing the production of elastin and collagen. For that reason, microneedling is often called collagen induction therapy.
Derma pens and derma rollers are two types of handheld devices used for microneedling the skin. They have a wide array of applications, ranging from treating acne marks, reducing scarring, and managing hair loss. While they work in the same way – primarily by needles making tiny puncture wounds in the skin – their mechanisms are very different.
Pure mechanical action, rolled against the skin
Short needles and consistent puncture depth
Can only roll horizontally against the skin
Readily accessible both inside and outside clinical treatment
Machine-powered pulses oscillating the needle point head
Longer needles with programmable puncture depth
Vertical angle of entry, more maneuverable overall
Somewhat difficult to access outside of professional and medical use
What Are Derma Rollers?
Derma rollers use a rolling head of hundreds of stainless steel needles to prick the skin. They’re typically used on wide areas like the face, neck, and abdominal area to treat wrinkles, acne scars, dark circles under the eyes, and other fine lines. Usually, they’re combined with other skincare products like hyaluronic acid.
Using a derma roller is fairly intuitive and doesn’t require a lot of training. However, it’s important to keep it properly sanitized and sterile, since the puncture wounds can develop into infections fairly easily. However, the maintenance of a derma roller doesn’t really require much outside of disinfecting and cleaning the needles, and perhaps finding a proper storage to prevent them from getting dull.
Derma rollers are an excellent choice if the patient only needs light treatment. They’re best suited for stretch marks and other light wrinkles that don’t need a lot of product or treatment. Combined with the right skincare product, using derma rollers can give the skin overall improvements.
What Are Dermapens?
Derma pens are handheld devices that are similar to derma rollers, but they work via oscillating pulses that quickly move the needle up and down the treatment site. Unlike rollers that move horizontally across the skin, dermapens move vertically. They’re more maneuverable than dermarollers since they’re easier to grip.
Using a dermapen requires little more time and investment since their needles and the pulses of the device can be modified to the patient’s liking. This allows for a more versatile treatment option, but it also means that there will be more trial and error before the user finds their ideal setting.
Dermapens are an excellent choice for many professional procedures since it improves the results while reducing the common drawbacks of using a derma roller. For this reason, they’re often limited to clinical and cosmetic practices, though there are a few commercial models that patients can buy and use at home.
Why Dermapens Are Better For Patients And Dermatologists
Despite their similarities in their method of action, dermapens are ultimately better for both patients and dermatologists. Aside from being a marked improvement in handling and functionality, dermapens offers some distinct advantages over derma roller use:
1. Precision treatment of wrinkles
Since derma rollers use a natural rolling action to puncture wounds on the skin, this means that the entire surface area of the roller will always hit the dermis. Derma rollers will always have a wide surface area of application, which may not be suitable for difficult areas like around the nose, eyes, lips and other dips and ridges on the body.
A dermapen has pinpoint precision with the exact area the needles touch. In addition, the settings can be configured easily to allow for more customization with how the dermapen works. This allows patients and dermatologists to consider factors like pain tolerance, expected results from the procedure, and other dynamic factors that can affect the treatment.
2. Less recovery and downtime needed after each procedure
One drawback with the horizontal action of derma rollers is that the lateral punctures leave the skin at an odd angle, which increases the likelihood of scarring and bruising. Because of the wide surface area of the derma roller, each pass increases the tearing and the trauma that the skin goes through.
This can lead to tenderness, bruising, swelling, bleeding, and other skin blemishes that can affect the quality of life of the patient. However, since dermapens can be applied with precision to prevent any unwanted areas from being punctured. The smooth action of the mechanisms also mean that there’s less chance of scarring.
3. More comfortable procedure
Using a dermapen is more natural than a derma roller, especially when it comes to handling the device. Derma rollers are limited by their overall surface area and mechanism of action, which makes it rough and unwieldy on curved surfaces. This makes treating areas like the scalp difficult because there’s no way to gauge or control how much pressure is required.
Dermapens can be adjusted right down to the needle depth, so all the user needs to do is to adjust the settings to account for differences in treatment area and overall pressure. The procedure is more comfortable since it doesn’t last as long, and there’s no need to maneuver around to treat tricker areas.
4. Controlled method of penetration
Using a derma roller can be unwieldy because of the wide surface area and the amount of needles in the roller. This doesn’t afford a lot of control for the user, since they’re limited by the roller’s overall size and the rolling action required to use the tool effectively.
But the tool design of the dermapen is different. Since it’s held vertically, the user can adjust the angle and the area affected to exactly how large or how small they want to cover. This allows for shallow treatments of wide areas and intense treatments of targeted areas for better results.
5. Versatile tool in professional hands
Derma rollers have a basic method of action, and consequently standard results. Aside from gross mishandling of the tool itself, patients can more or less expect some results after consistent and standard use, but nothing too visible or out of the ordinary.
However, dermapen use is more targeted and has better options for treatment compared to using a derma roller. This allows for visible results and flexible treatment plans if the user is skilled enough with operating it. For dermatologists and cosmetic practices, skilled use of a dermapen can help them give their clients results that are closer to their expectations.
6. Targeted application of serums and cosmetic solutions
Compounds like peptides and topical hyaluronic acid often work well with derma rollers, but they’re a better fit for dermapens and their targeted needles. Because these serums often work on specific areas of the face and body, the puncture depth and overall maneuverability of the dermapen make it a better choice.
This is especially handy with products like PEP growth factor, which may improve the appearance of hair and reduce the signs of acne scars on the treatment site. With consistent use, it has the potential to boost the results obtained by microneedling alone.
One thing that’s crucial to remember with using a dermapen is that it does require more time, investment, and cost. Derma rollers have the advantage as far as accessibility and pricing is concerned, but dermapens offer better results at premium prices. Ultimately, the choice between which tool to use is best left after taking those factors into account.
Why Consider Microneedling For Your Clients?
Microneedling is often compared to other treatments like dermaplaning. Microneedling and dermaplaning might both be skin rejuvenation treatments but they don’t exactly produce the same results. Dermaplaning is a “surface only” procedure where the top layer of dead skin cells are exfoliated off. Patients will see an immediate glow to their skin surface. Without facial (or velous) hair covering most of your face, make up glides on more smoothly and skincare products absorb a lot more quickly. Although these improvements might be significant for some patients, others might want a more drastic change to their appearance and skin health.
That’s where microneedling comes in. The handheld device creates small punctures to the skin, triggering its natural healing properties. This increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production — both of which are critical in maintaining or restoring a healthy skin appearance.
The main difference between microneedling and dermaplaning is just how extensive their results are. For patients who are looking for a quick and non-invasive exfoliation treatment, dermaplaning offers exactly that. The exfoliation isn’t similar to chemical peels where active ingredients penetrate the skin and work to break the dead cell barriers; dermaplaning is a physical exfoliating treatment designed to clear out the uppermost layer of your skin. It won’t address problems like hyperpigmentation and fine lines.
But for patients who have more extensive skin needs and want to treat problems like hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkles, poor texture, and a lack-luster complexion, microneedling is the better treatment option for these problems.
Microneedling VS Dermapen
Again, the question is wrong, but your patients are asking. Dermapen is an automatic microneedling device consisting of a cartridge with 12 microneedles. This is a professional-grade device typically found in spa and dermatology clinics. The tips can be adjusted from 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm which allows treatment into the dermis to create real dramatic skin improvements. If used incorrectly, microneedling can actually cause more harm than good.
Compared to at-home “microneedling” tools, professional tools like the Vaney Needle Pen provide more control and precision, which is important when you’re trying to treat different skin conditions on different parts of the face and hard-to-reach areas like the corner of the nose or around the eyes. Your practitioner has knowledge of the skins working aspects and how to use this treatment for the safest and best outcome.
On average, a microneedling session costs between $150 and $700 each, depending on the local market. Patients can expect to shell out as much as $400 to get the best results from a microneedling treatment, regardless of who manufactured the pen – us, Dermapen or whoever.
Meanwhile, home microneedling pens cost anywhere from $29 upwards, depending on the quality. These disposable microneedling pens are affordable tools you can use at home but at what risk. Problems with increased pigmentation, infection and even reversing collagen production can be caused by improper use. Having a regimented home skin care routine along with professional microneedling treatments will give the best outcome.
Dermapen: Is It Worth It?
Not only is the Dermapen 3 times the cost of the Vaney Needle Pen, the needles are almost 3 times the cost. We are confident the Dermapen is not worth it and our hundreds of happy customers would agree. What patients care about is that their microneedling treatment is performed by a skilled professional, and of course, results.
What About At-Home Tools or Dermarollers and At-Home Microneedling?
If your client brings it up, here are some key points to help them consider. The truth is that at-home treatments are no comparison to in-clinic sessions. While at-home and professional microneedling tools look the same, there is a critical difference: the length of the needles. On average, the length of the needles on an in-office microneedling tool is .25mm to 2.5mm, sometimes reaching 3mm to address scarring. In contrast, the needles on an at-home dermaroller is usually only between .25mm and .5mm.
Here are things you might want to consider when deciding between an at-home roller or booking a dermapen appointment:
Cost: You can get some results with a dermaroller without the hefty price tag of a Dermapen appointment. But that comes with some limitations and risks. Yes, a 0.5mm MT dermaroller, which is one of the needle settings on the Dermapen, costs $29 compared to the $300 cost of a single session but specific areas cannot be treated with a dermaroller due to its size.
Limitations: Although derma rollers can be used at home they do not have the ability to adjust depth for different areas of the face for different skin conditions. The Dermapen, operated by a licensed professional has the ability to treat into the dermis where collagen is produced. There are lots of articles and videos that can teach you how to use a dermaroller but there will always be limitations. Do your research before you incorporate dermarollers into your routine.
Cross-contamination: Although microneedling can lend that dewy glow immediately, in home dermaroller treatments come with the risk of spreading germs and causing infection. With not having the ability to properly clean the derma roller, shin cells, blood and other debris can be pushed into the open wounds during the procedure. Patients typically need to routinely have microneedling once every four to six weeks to get the best results and it is best to do 3 aggressive treatments that are safe then risk infection. For scars and stretch marks, experts typically recommend 3 to 6 treatments until the appearance of stretch marks and scars begin to improve. Keeping up with your routine with Dermapen can be expensive, but advanced protocols are the only way to actually make visible change.
Skin injury: Using a derma roller causes undue injury to the skin because of its round configuration. In addition the needles become dull after each treatment causing more trauma. If your skin is particularly sensitive, inform your doctor and they will start with a less aggressive dermapen treatment. Dermarolling. Buying a dermaroller and performing microneedling at home looks appealing but at what cost.
Here are situations and reasons why booking a professional microneedling session is better than your patient trying to DIY their own microneedling at home:
You need dermatology-grade skin care products: You might need more advanced skin care products to treat your issues. Using professional-grade products at your dermatologist’s clinic is always the better option for safety as well as results
You’re doing microneedling with RF therapy: Some patients combine microneedling with radiofrequency therapy treatments to get the results they want. Since you can’t do RF at home, again they want to go see a professional.
If you want to use microneedling as an occasional treatment, you might be better off scheduling infrequent visits with your dermatologist or favorite local med spa.
Tips For Successful Microneedling
Our marketing team said we needed to find a way to keep this heading at the top for SEO, so we decided to remind you to reinforce to your patients that the only way they should try microneedling at home is if you are offering in-home visits. Even then, not ideal because of the need for a clean and sterile environment.
Set realistic expectations. Results from microneedling vary depending on skin problems. For patients who are looking to improve the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation, final results will be visible 3 months after a series of microneedling treatments..
Set a microneedling schedule that works for your patient. Make sure they understand the frequency needed to achieve their desired results.
Purchase, use and maintain a quality microneedling pen. Do research on multiple microneedling pens. Expensive pens don’t always mean it’s good or better quality. It’s best to buy your pen and cartridges from a reliable and proven source. (when you compare Vaney Needle Pen to your other options, we’re easily the best value)
Treatments should not be done more frequently than every four weeks, as it will actually reverse collagen production. Microneedling stimulates the regrowth of cells, and this process organically takes a few weeks to occur. Microneedling speeds up the process, but it doesn’t accelerate it any further with continuous use. It is possible to do too much microneedling or dermarolling and harm your skin.
Always use a new cartridge for each treatment and never share a cartridge with anyone. For patient safety they are single use only and should not be sterilized.
Continually adjust needle depth for area being treated and the skin condition that is being targeted.
Increase the effectiveness of your clients’ microneedling sessions by applying topical skincare products. Microneedling promotes better absorption providing maximum benefits in the process. Be careful not to over exfoliate the face; using AHAs and BHAs might not be ideal if you see signs of discomfort.
DERMAPEN Auto Microneedle System is a revolutionary micro-puncture device that aims to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Using a Dermapen is safe and effective when penetrating the skin and gives more consistent results.
Micro and Nano Needling treat many of the same skin conditions. Having a positive effect in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pigmentation, improving skin tone and texture when it comes to resurfacing acne scars and shrinking pore size. Nano Needling creates nano channels allowing better product absorption, and also helps treat the more sensitive areas with thinner skin such as above the lips and eye area.
What are the benefits?
Besides having a superior effect on the rejuvenation of collagen and elastin and a multi-speed and adjustable needle depth, it also has an improved drilling safety and efficiency than traditional rollers. Other benefits are:
Eﬀective treatment of hard-to-reach places;
Promotion of healing and reproduction of natural collagen;
Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation;
Healing acne scars and wounds;
Improving wrinkles and fine lines;
Open pore minimisation;
Improving stretch marks;
Aiding penetration of treatment solutions;
Eﬀective treatment of hard-to-reach places;
Promotion of healing and reproduction of natural collagen.
It’s an automated-micro needling therapy that vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage.
The results obtained allow a continuous rejuvenation for healthy skin. It treats problem areas such as fine lines around the lips, eyes and forehead. The appearance of scars or skin damage is reduced as acne scars or stretch marks on the face or body as well as minimizes the appearance of very open pores, blackheads and milium. Still concerning scars, it treats chickenpox scars.
When using the Dermapen, deep lines and wrinkles are filled, improving skin texture. Moreover, it is used to treat and decrease hyperpigmentation, age marks and damaged skin by the sun.
However, it should also be highlighted that it improves collagen fibers by up to 100% and improves the absorption of products on the skin or hair by up to 100% so that they can be more eﬀective. In all the treatments there is no downtime.
DermaPen is an innovative microneedling device used to stimulate collagen production. This collagen fills in fine lines and acne scars, tightens loose skin, and minimizes enlarged pores. Collagen induction therapy via microneedling has been performed since ancient times. What brings micro-needling into the 21st century is that with this device, the depth of penetration of the needles is adjustable. With a twist of the knob, you can lightly prick the top of the skin to help with topical product penetration or go deeper with the needles to stimulate collagen for more resistant wrinkles and scars.
Fraxel lasers produce a similar type of micro-penetration. However, lasers use high heat to penetrate the skin, which produces collateral damage to healthy tissue, thereby causing pain and more downtime. With the DermaPen only a mild topical anesthetic is used and which minimizes discomfort.
Plus, due to it’s small size – just the size of a marker or highlighter pen – it’s able to get into smaller contoured areas more easily than using a laser. The DermaPen is ideal for upper lip wrinkles and crow’s feet. Add PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and results are even better!

How Microneedling or Dermapen works?
In essence, the treatment is a cosmetic aesthetic-medical procedure that involves puncturing the dermis (skin) with very tiny, micro-fine sterile needles in a pen (micro-needling the skin). That stimulates the collagen production. That process is called “micro-damage” or “controlled trauma” to the skin, which then encourages new cellular turnover of healthier, stronger and firmer looking skin.
It might sound a little scary, but in the right hands of a fully-qualified and experienced Skin Clinician or Aesthetic Physician (such as our aestheticians in North East Laser Vein Institute), it is one of the most effective ways to get the skin renewal cycle to generate stronger collagen and healthier, firmer looking skin.
In a typical micro-needling treatment the needle depths are anywhere from 0.5mm down to 3.5mm (typically changed in increments of 0.1mm to 0.25mm or 0.5mm depending on the device and how it operates.
