Always Expanding Applications Of Dermal Needling

Dermal needling appliances are becoming varied, from dermal rollers (these are particularly good for home use, in between clinic treatments) to the DermaPen or DermaStamp, and now the Vital Gun which actually deposits products directly into the skin rather than rubbing it across the top of the skin for penetration.

All the needling appliances are good but each improves in results as you go up a level.

Dermal needling improves penetration of serum into the skin, it also breaks down damaged collagen in scars, and yet thickens the skin when you have sensitive reactive skin.

Large pores are a breakdown of collagen, and dermal needling causes a microtrauma to the skin, tricking the brain into thinking it’s damaged, and so throwing out more collagen and elastin to repair. This is why it is a great treatment for large pores.

Applications Of Dermal Needling

Dermal needling is effectively used for

  • Skin tightening, lifting, and rejuvenation.
  • It also helps skin texture by improving wrinkles and fine lines and minimizing pore size.
  • Reducing scarring, whether it’s old acne scarring or a newer wound that has scarred.
  • Improve stretch marks, treat alopecia, and lift abnormal pigmentation.

For those interested in the science behind how causing a micro-injury to the skin stimulates collagen production:


Medical Dermal Rolling or Skin Needling is used for collagen channelling for natural collagen induction therapy.

The principle behind collagen channelling and the medical needling treatment is simple. When it is applied to the skin, under local or topical anaesthetic, it creates channels deep into the dermis of the skin. These deep channels cause keratinocytes and fibroblasts to produce numerous growth factors to induce collagen, without any damage to the epidermis at all.
