Dermapin vs Dermaroller


Erase your skins past...Try Microneedling! 
Farewell Dermaroller  Welcome to the new and improved version.


It's time we moved forward from traditional ‘Derma roller’ devices with the invention of the ‘Derma pin', which is a much more advanced and effective method for skin rejuvenation.

Why? It's more precise- Dermapin can treat those hard to reach areas like the eyes, nose and upper lip whereas with Derma roller its a lot more difficult.

Needle depth can be changed with Dermapin whereas with a Dermaroller you can only reach a single depth. The benefit of this, is it allows us to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for best results e.g acne scars or delicate areas like the eye.

Less damage and less down time! The needles in the Dermapin penetrate the skin vertically where with Dermarollers the needles penetrate the skin at an angle causing more chance of ‘tears/scatches’ in the skin leading to more side effects and longer recovery time.

It's a lot more comfortable for the client! As Dermapin has a built in motorised system, it's more precise/accurate on its and can penetrate the skin from up to 100 times per second with an adjustable speed whereas Dermrollers speed cannot be adjusted, as this is dependent on the handlers technique. Being able to adjust the speed minimises skin damage, pain and recovery time.
