If a roller has more and longer needles, will I get better results?

Answer: No.

Consider that your skin at its deepest thickness is 2.5 mm. Most other roller manufacturing companies sell rollers with 3 mm needles in length for one obvious reason. They need to sell longer needles in order to achieve adequate skin penetration because their needles are blunt and poorly designed. Therefore, more force needs to be applied in order to penetrate the skin increasing trauma to the skin and the risk of injury. We are sure that many of you have observed videos in YouTube and elsewhere where micro-needling procedures using other manufacturers devices are shown. These videos may have given many of you cause for concern.  Their needles lack in engineering quality and design, and most importantly, sharpness. In contrast, if a Dermaroller® micro-needling device were to be used, you would obtain the same results with a roller that has 1.5 mm needles or less in length with minimal trauma.

In order to respond to the claim that more needles are better the "Fakir Effect" will be explained. Many have witnessed or seen pictures of a Muslin or Hindu religious man laying on a bed of nails. This man is called a Fakir. Then, as he lays on the bed of nails, either a heavy cement block is placed on his abdomen or someone stands on his belly. Miraculously, no nails penetrate the skin of the holy man. How is this possible? Why don't the needles penetrate and severely injury the man? The answer lies in the number of needles that were imbedded in the bed of nails. The greater the number of nails, the more force is required for the nails to be able to penetrate the skin. With a large number of nails his weight becomes evenly distributed amongst the nails, therefore it becomes difficult for any one nail to penetrate the skin because there is not enough force one any one nail to drive the nail through the skin. However, if the number of nails is reduced significantly, the weight becomes distributed amongst a lesser number of nails. There will be more force or weight on each nail, and they will penetrate the skin.

In short, more micro-needles in a roller only means that significantly greater force will have to applied onto the skin in order for the micro-needles to begin to penetrate the skin. More needles only serve to make a roller inefficient. The risk of injury increases. Medical Dermaroller® devices have the appropriate number of micro-needles to be effective. This is another good reason for choosing Dermaroller® engineered medical devices.
