The reason why dermaroller is used to treat this wide range of skin problems is due to one common factor: collagen.

Importance of collagen in dermaroller treatment

Collagen is one of the building blocks of the skin along with elastin. It is a type of protein which in conjunction with elastin helps to support the skin, tissues, muscles and tendons within the body. Collagen provides strength, flexibility and firmness. This is what gives skin its smooth, supple appearance which is a particular feature of young looking skin.

Young skin is free from any scars, wrinkles, lines and blemishes which is why many people go to great lengths to achieve this. This means undergoing any number of cosmetic treatments, some of which are more expensive (and time consuming!) than others. But what dermaroller does is to increase the production of collagen which revitalises the skin, resulting in a fresh, youthful appearance. It is also an effective form of treatment for repairing surgical scars and other similar blemishes. Collagen is the reason why dermaroller has proven to be a successful form of treatment.
