Skin Needling: Pen vs. Roller, which is best?
Get in touch with us
What is skin needling?
Clinical Skin Needling is rising in popularity for those in pursuit of the perfect skin. This skin resurfacing treatment is effective on uneven skin, scarring & age lines alike. The needling part refers to the tiny surgical needles, which are used to lightly puncture the skin, breaking down bumps, scar tissue & age lines. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing processes including the natural production of new collagen. The result is a new, smoother skin surface.
But what holds the needles you ask?
There are two technologies:
The DERMAL ROLLER is a mechanical device with surgical Micro Needles protruding from a wheel. This is rolled up and down the affected area. The upside is the simplicity, the downside is that it can create ‘tearing’ wounds, as the roller moves forward, leading the needle to exit the skin at an angle, which can be quite painful.
The NEEDLING PEN contains surgical micro needles, on a motorised head. Rather rather than using a rolling action, the Dermapen moves the needles in and out at a rate of about 1000 times per second, delivering tiny vertical punctures, creating less trauma to the epidermis. The head can be adjusted to vary the depth to which the needles penetrate the skin.

We were all intrigued when KK posted this Instagram photo.
And even more so when she denounced it as painful over three years later. I mean, who would want a facial where you are stabbed with tiny needles full of your own blood?
The treatment known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has taken the world by storm a variation of the treatment that produces almost identical skin resurfacing results is known as Clinical Skin Needling.
So what is the fuss all about?
Why skin needling?
This affordable treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns; it tackles pitted scaring, surgical scars, un-even skin tones, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles. It also stimulates your natural collagen leaving you with a smoother, rejuvenated and younger look after each treatment at a fraction of the cost compared to other technologies on the market.
With consistent treatments, you will notice a significant reduction in pores, reduction or complete removal of pitted scaring and an overall more even skin tone. On average, scars can improve about 10-15% after your first treatment.

How does skin needling work?
Clinical Skin Needling works by lightly puncturing the skin with tiny medical needles through a motorised head. It is by far the most exciting treatment available on the market today, and Results Laser Clinic’s MediPro DermaPen is so advanced, that the depth of the needles can be adjusted in order to tailor a treatment specific to your needs.
It can even be used in those delicate and difficult areas such as around the lips, eyes and even on the nose. We love how instant the results are and we guarantee that you will love them too!
Can I have skin needling?
The best part about Clinical Skin Needling is that it works on almost all skin colours and types. Some treatments carry the risk of hyperpigmentation, especially in darker skins.
A FREE consultation with a clinical therapist will give you a better understanding of your suitability for the treatment. More often than not, if you have indented scaring, uneven skin surface or enlarged pores – you are the perfect candidate for the treatment.
Will it hurt like a vampire bite?
No. It is virtually painless! Our clinical therapists use a medical grade numbing cream on the skin’s surface about 30 minutes before treatment in order to make the experience as pleasant as possible. The sensation can be described as a fast, light vibration with slight flicks to the skin as the pen rolls over the area.
Will I bleed?
Not everyone will bleed, it just depends on how your skin responds to the needles and our therapists will only take the needle as far as your skin can handle. Bleeding does not mean better results.
How much recovery time will I need?
Usually redness and inflammation on the skin settles within hours of treatment and most clients will see their skin return to normal within 12-24 hours. To accelerate the healing process and also maximize the results of the skin needling treatment we recommend adding on an LED Advanced Light Therapy.
What are the normal side effects?
Skin may appear slight scratched and swollen within first 24hrs; pin prick bruising may also occur but will gradually subside over the 24-48hours.
It’s very normal for your skin to break out after the treatment as the skin is expelling toxins from beneath the surface.
It’s important to follow the aftercare given to you by our therapists.
Avoid touching your face, sleep on a fresh pillow case, clean your mobile screen and also if you are applying makeup avoid within 24 hours and ensure your brushes have been thoroughly cleaned.
