Different Types of Microneedling Devices
- 25mm roller is simply for boosting skin care product absorption aka “transdermal absorption”. It cannot stimulate collagen growth, but it can thicken your top skin layer called “epidermis.”
- 5mm will treat the epidermis more comfortably
- 5mm will reach the dermis and is the maximum length of needle allowed to be used in the UK of the face, anything longer will not be covered by insurance as there will be an increased risk to the client with little evidence of improved rejuvenation.
- 0mm will treat the body areas such as stretch marks.
Technique needs to follow 4 directions of movement: vertical, horizontal and two diagonals. It is important to prefect the roller technique and maintain a tract in treatment areas; any deviation could cause abrasions in the client’s skin.
