Derma Rollers…Are they Effective? Safe?


Any device that states it can: “Help clear Acne, Acne scars, Grey or Thinning hair, and much much more is Full of hot Air!

Please watch this video on the correct use of Derma Rollers! Pretty complicated and sophisticated for a non-medical person. None of the patients who I have asked have been using these devices appropriately.


Post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (dark brown pigmentation), hypertrophic scarring (thickened scars), and spreading of Herpes and bacterial infections are possible outcomes of using these devices incorrectly.
