When choosing your DermaRoller, what needle size is best for you?
The Scientia Derma Roller is available in a choice of different needle sizes, so you should choose the needle size which best suits the condition or body part you are trying to treat.
Derma Roller Needle sizes for home use include 0.5mm, 1mm (1.0mm), 1.5mm and for professional use, we have 2mm (2.0mm) and 2.5mm rollers. We also have 3 line rollers (made narrow to reach harder to treat areas like around the nose) in 1.0mm and 1.5mm sizes.
So what needle size is best for me?
Which needle size for stretch marks?
The correct needle size for acne scars or other facial scars?
We recommend 0.5mm for light acne scarring, mild chicken pox scars or ice pick scars, or simply regular anti ageing treatments. A 1.0mm roller is more suitable for deep acne scarring, surgery scars, ice pick or chicken pox scars, and 1.5mm Derma Rollers are for very deep scarring. A Derma Roller 1.5mm is the maximum we would recommend for use on the face (unless as part of a professional treatment), but your body is less sensitive to treatment, so you should decide which would best suit your needs.
You may also wish to choose the 3 line roller as it is better suited to use on certain parts of your face (such as around the nose), but it is not always necessary as our regular roller may suit you.
What size of DermaRoller for hair loss?
What about for Cellulite?
The best needle size for cellulite is 1mm or 1.5mm depending on how severe the case is.
Is the right Derma Roller needle length the only factor?
No. We also recommend the use of our vitamin rich treatment cream and Scientia Nutrition MultiVitamins as they have all the ingredients needed to support the use of the Scientia Derma Roller, and we find it can speed up results by giving your skin the building blocks it needs to generate new collagen and elastin - the materials which give your skin its elasticity and smooth texture.
What about sterilizing your Derma Roller?
To sterilize your Derma Roller, we recommend the same product used to sterilize baby’s bottles (sterilisation liquid or sterilising fluid) available from your local pharmacy or supermarket.
