How Dermaroller ® Compares

Are All Micro-Needling Rollers The Same?

By the naked eye of patients and medical professionals alike, micro-needling rollers may look deceptively simple and similar. However, once a learned and critical eye looks upon each individual micro-needling roller in the marketplace, a much different appraisal occurs.

Properly designed micro-needling rollers require expert medical engineering. From the type of plastic, to the alloy used in the production of the micro-needles, to the number of micro-needles imbedded into the roller, to how easy the roller rolls on the skin, etc.; these details are critical.

In order to easily puncture and penetrate the skin, and to communicate with skin stem cells, the proper needle design, pattern and number of needles for specific applications have to be taken into consideration. The list of details is lengthy.

What’s important to remember is Collagen Induction Therapy can only be achieved through medical micro-needling. Treating micro-needling as less than a medical surgical procedure puts you at risk because improper use can cause skin tissue and nerve damage.

To ensure your safety, desired results and a comfortable experience during treatment, you must use a micro-needling device that’s engineered, manufactured and packaged with the same quality standards as a medical/surgical instrument. Post-production of the medical instrument, they are required to the packaged, sterilized, placed in a container and sealed. When you look at the container you should clearly and easily be able to read and determine the following:

  1. Model/type of instrument or device in the package
  2. Lot-Number
  3. Date of production
  4. Date of expiration
  5. Method used to guarantee sterility
  6. Name of the manufacturer

If you aren't able to determine any of the above listed factors by looking at the container, you should be suspicious. Within each individually sterilely packaged medical instrument or device in a container you also should find instructions for use. Dermaroller ® meets and exceeds all of the above listed requirements.
