Also known as collagen induction therapy
Having trained in Micro needling using both the Dermafix pen and the Dermaroller method,I personally prefer the pen. I’m going to explain why…..

Microneedling Pen vs. Micro needling Roller what’s the difference?
You may have heard of the term ‘micro needling’, A lot of clinics and salons still provide microneedling for skin rejuvenation using traditional ‘derma roller’devices. Technology has moved forward with the invention of the medical ‘ micro needling pen’, which is a much more advanced and effective method for skin rejuvenation. Micro-needling is essentially Dermarolling.


Both Micro needling Pen and Micro-needling Rollers are forms of micro needling used to stimulate the production of new collagen by causing micro punctures in the skin which sends the body into healing mode. It induces the production of collagen and elastin, therefore ‘repairing’ the treated area. , which in effect rejuvenates the skin making your skin look plumper,younger and fresher and effectively treats an array of common skin concerns such as
  • Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation

  • Healing acne scars and wounds

  • Improving wrinkles and fine lines

  • Open pore minimisation

  • Improving stretch marks

  • Uneven skin tone, age spots, hyper pigmentation

  • Aiding penetration of treatment solution

Benefits of Dermafix pen over a Dermaroller?

1. More precise:
The 16 needle Dermafix pen can easily treat those hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, nose and upper lip whereas it is more difficult to reach these areas with traditional rollers.
2. Customised treatment:
Needle depth can be adjusted with the Dermafix Pen whereas the Microneedling Rollers can only reach a single depth. The benefit of adjusting needle depth allows us to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for best results.
This is extremely important when treating specific skin concerns such as acne scarring, where a deeper penetration of the needles is required or delicate areas of the face such as the eye area.
3.Less epidermal damage resulting in minimal down time
The hexagon shaped needles in Dermafix Pens penetrate the skin vertically whereas with Microneedling rollers the needles penetrate the skin at an angle causing more chance of ‘tears’ through the skin leading to more side effects and therefore longer recovery time.
4.Fast treatment with minimal discomfort
As Dermafix pen has a built in motorised system it is more precise and accurate on its depth of penetration and can penetrate the skin from up to 100 times per second with an adjustable speed whereas speed cannot be adjusted with Dermarollers as this is dependent on the handlers technique. Being able to adjust the speed minimises skin damage, pain and recovery time.


In addition using the dermafix pen, I use products in the form of a concentrated solution, selected for Your skin type/ requirements. This solution is applied to the skin before, during and after micro needling. The needling allows for better penetration of products, thanks to tiny pinpricks created that work almost like canals, to reach deeper into the Dermis layer of the skin. This in turn, maximises your results. To complete the treatment,an Intensive repair collagen mask is applied.
