Dr Roller design and function

This roller contains 192 fine micro-needles which are fitted in a cross-lined formation thus enabling the skin to be drawn tightly whilst being used. This tightness forces the pores of the skin open which also ensures that the process is more comfortable for you.

These micro-needles are made of very fine surgical steel and are designed to be long lasting. They are available in a variety of different lengths which range from 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm for home use and 2 mm to 2.5 mm for professional use.

The most popular size of needle is 1.0 mm.

The roller handle is well designed and ensures that this device can be used by anyone.

There is a variation on this roller called a ‘three line roller’which is designed for hard to reach areas of the body such as those spaces around the nose.

The concept behind Dr Roller

The idea behind this roller is that it gently opens up the pores of your skin which then acts as a trigger to start producing collagen and elastin. These two proteins are the building blocks of the skin and are produced as part of your body’s healing process.

This opening of the pores also means easy access for skin care products which contain nutrients that help to boost collagen production.

A skin care cream is provided with the roller: this product is usually enriched with vitamins C and E plus evening primrose oil and aloe vera. These are designed to speed up the healing process as well as keeping your skin soft and lubricated.
