Medical Needling is a minimal invasive treatment concept which provides an improvement of the skin texture. It is an excellent way to treat scars, acne scars and stretch marks. The Dermaroller is a medical roller with a roller head sized ranging from 10mm to 20mm. The roller head is generally equipped with sterilized needles whose sizes ranges from 0,2mm to 2,5mm. The medical treatment should be solely administered by trained doctors and their clinical staff. The rollers are designed for a single use. It’s important to mention that these medical devices can only be supplied to doctors and medical practices.
Because facial skin has an average thickness of 1,5mm, needles length not greater than 1,5mm are not recommended (except when burn scars are treated). Medical needling with needles length of 0,2mm or more is painful, that is why the skin area to be treated must be locally anesthetized before to reduce discomfort. Local anesthesia is usually achieved by applying anesthetic creams into the skin.
The thickness of skin changes according to the origins, we recommend needles length of 0,2mm to 1,5mm for a facial use.
