Derma pen and Derma roller are both tools for microneedling which is a form of collagen induction therapy. They work by creating “micro” wounds in the skin. This is done by small needles puncturing the skin as the roller or device passes over the skin. The Derma pen is an updated electronic version of the Derma roller which is rolled manually.

Dermarpen uses modern technology to replace the manual Dermarolling technique. When it comes to Dermapen versus Dermaroller microneedling many people are confused about their differences.

Let’s look at the micro needling roller firs.

A micro needling roller is a device with a rotating wheel filled with tiny micro needles(The outstanding item is dr pen ultima M8). The size of the needles determines the depth of penetration. They vary from 0.25 mm to 1.00 mm. It has a medium sized handle so it’s convenient to hold onto. Because the roller only has 1 size of micro needles, they only pierce at that particular depth into the skin. Consequently, the roller is quite effective to target hyperpigmentation as these skin irregularities are close to the surface of the skin.
