Dermaroller – Microfine Needling for a Fresh Complexion

The Dermaroller®is one of the newest developments in the field of medical skin rejuvenation. With pricks of its microfine needles, the Dermaroller® mimics injury to the skin without actually damaging tissue. Rather, the nerves of the skin register the pricks and stimulate the cells around them to react: They produce collagen to close the supposed "wound."

The result: Self-regeneration of the skin from within, a more even skin structure and a fresh appearance.

The Dermaroller® is suitable for

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Improving skin structure of scars – such as after severe acne or stretch marks

Our dermatologists at the Rosenpark Klinik use medical Dermarollers®: They are made for what is known as medical needling, have a greater penetration depth and thus a more intensive effect than devices for home use, and may only be used by specialists. The also available home devices are perfect to prolong the effect of your treatment at the clinic.

What is the Dermaroller?

The Dermaroller® is a manageable roller with microfine needles. Depending on need and purpose, devices with various widths and different needle lengths can be used.

Since our skin is not even at all points on the face and since it is up to 1.5 mm thick, we use medical Dermarollers® with different needle lengths between 0.5 and 1.5 mm. The needles of the home devices are no longer than 0.5 mm.

How is it administered?

The dermatologist rolls a sterile disposable device for about 20 minutes over the facial skin which was thoroughly cleaned beforehand. As needed, individual areas are treated several times and more intensively with the Dermaroller®.

Is some sort of anesthesia required?

The treatment is performed under local anesthesiaanesthesia using an anesthesia creamFor more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Essentially immediately. The skin will be slightly reddened afterwards as an intended reaction to the collagen induction therapy, similarly to an excessive period of sunbathing. This redness generally disappears after three to four days.
