Micronurse MNS dermaroller

The MNS (Micronurse) roller is another popular dermaroller which combines high quality features with a low cost approach to home based rollers.

This roller is considered a worthy competitor to other well known brands of dermaroller.

The Micronurse roller has been pre-sterilised so this is one less thing for you to do as part of your pre-treatment routine. Some rollers have to be sterilised by the customer before use but others such as the Micronurse MNS roller have undergone this procedure beforehand.

Micronurse MNS roller design and function

This roller features a blue coloured barrel with 200 micro needles which is attached to a transparent handle. These micro needles are made from premium surgical steel and create openings in the pores of the skin which stimulates the skin into healing itself.

There are different sizes of micro needles which depend upon the type of treatment. Some skin conditions require the use of a roller with the smallest size of needle, e.g. 0.15 mm for fine lines and wrinkles: and then there are the larger 2.0 mm and 2.5 mm sized needles for deep seated acne scars and heavy looking stretch marks.

The size of needle also depends upon which part of the body (of face) is being treated. Areas which require precision rolling will use a small needle whereas areas of the body where there is extensive damage, e.g. surgical scars will require a large needle.

The Micronurse MNS roller can be used on most areas of the face and body but with two exceptions. It must not be used on the lips or the eyelids.

The concept behind Micronurse MNS roller

The concept behind this roller is the same as that which applies to all types of dermaroller.

Dermaroller is a skin repair and rejuvenation system in which the roller is used to penetrate the pores of the skin via a rolling action. This has the effect of opening those pores which also triggers a healing process. These openings are tiny micro channels which do not cause any bleeding or discomfort and are extremely receptive to moisturisers and other skin care products.

This does not cause any damage to the skin.

This healing process involves the production of collagen and elastin: two important proteins within the skin which are responsible for its strength and elasticity.

This process reduces or in some cases, removes the offending skin condition, for example the signs of ageing or damage caused by excess sun exposure.

The best results arise from a combination of the roller and the application of a vitamin enriched skin care product. Apply a moisturising cream as well.

How to use Micronurse MNS roller

All of the dermarollers featured in this guide are easy to use. They are a handy size and light enough to fit into your hand. You use the roller by moving it across your skin in a series of movements which mimic the four compass points.

In other words, you move it four times –north, south, east and west across the area of skin to be treated. Take extra care near your eyes, lips and other delicate parts of your face and/or body.

Roll this over your skin as directed and only do this once a day. You can use this roller up to 3 times a week but follow any guidelines provided with this carefully.

Overuse will result in painful, sore skin so avoid doing this.

In order to help you with this we have put together a section on how to use a dermaroller at home. Find out more in our home based dermaroller section.

This section discusses what to do before treatment, during the treatment and after.
