What is Derma Rolling and how does it work? 

Derma Rolling, aka micro needling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure in which thousands of tiny little needles are inserted into the surface of skin via a rolling or stamping device. 

Derma rolling works by creating microscopic wounds which induce collagen and elastin production.  

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and is responsible for holding together connective tissue like skin, muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones. 

This protein is also what keeps us looking young. Unfortunately, it’s believed that collagen production slows down by about 1 percent per year after the age of 20, which results in ageing. 

Derma Rolling is considered a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime. However, the recovery process does depend largely on the length of the needles used. Obviously, the longer the needles, the deeper the wound — and that means the longer the recovery time.
