What is Dermaroller?
The Dermaroller is a safe, effective, minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a micro-needling device.
Micro Dermaroller Skin Micro- Needling
A new, minimally invasive technique of remodeling skin with little to no downtime is now available at Toronto Dermatology Centre (TDC). This Vital Collagen Induction treatment utilizes the FDA approved Medical Dermaroller to create micro-needle punctures into the dermis. By doing so, the skin’s natural defense allows it to create new collagen cells by stimulating growth and healing factors. This results in a quick healing time with generally excellent results.
Dermaroller is suitable to treat a wide variety of skin concerns such as acne scars, lines, skin laxity, texture and tone, photo damage, and other skin imperfections. The Dermaroller is a great rejuvenation treatment for the face, but is also very effective on the body. It can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and tighten “mummy tummy.” Since it is not a laser, it can be performed on all skin types safely and effectively, even during the summer time.
There is basically no downtime associated with the procedure and there is minimal discomfort. Treatments can be performed every two months until the desired results are reached, but visible improvement can be seen after even one treatment.
There are very few side effects associated with Dermaroller, but immediately after the treatment redness and occasional pinpoint bleeding may occur. This is usually gone within a day or two, and some dehydration may last few a few days while the old cells shed to reveal new healthy glowing cells. For proper assessment, pre and post protocol and a personal treatment regime, a complimentary consultation done by one of our trained medical estheticians is advisable.
In association with the Dermaroller treatment performed in clinic, there is an at home version that can also be purchased at TDC. The home roller will enhance your treatments, continue to improve your results on an ongoing basis, and it is such a fabulous exfoliation system, that it allows up to 200x better penetration of your home care products. Used regularly, it can thicken up the top layer of your skin by 30%, leaving healthy glowing, tighter skin. It is indicated to help control oil for those who have to deal with acne breakouts and is especially good for women who tend to get hormonal acne. It is cost efficient and easy to use. For about 10 minutes 2-3 times a week, it is one of the best home care additions anyone could consider for optimal enhancement of their skin.

2013 marked a new beginning in medical skin-needling with the introduction of eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation. Using the eDermastamp®, the latest evolution in electronic automation, is again leading the way in quality, efficacy and safety assurance.
eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation is only available from medical practitioners and authorised clinics using the eDermastamp™ CE marked medical device. eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation provides advanced, electronic medical aesthetic skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, younger, healthier looking skin. Applicable to treat most areas of the face and specific areas of the body, it is most advantageous for the following:
- Isolated scars and smaller scar formations.
- Distinct deeper mimic wrinkles.
- Isolated pigment conglomeration.
- Transdermal delivery of hydrophilic and lipophilic formulations.
Only the technology in the eDermastamp™ skin-needle medical device combines the most advanced German, medically-engineered, electrical mechanism with the most advanced Medizinisch-Nadel-Technik™ German medical skin-needle technology providing an even more intensive, even more controllable and even more comfortable medical skin-needling procedure!
The eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation treatment has an excellent comfort level and this will normally be made more so by the application of a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment. Alongside this and to further enhance the efficacy and comfort of the treatment, the practitioner will incorporate a medi-grade, skin hydrating and enhancing solution to the treatment area providing an advanced mesotherapy procedure.
Q: What benefits will I see in my skin, and when?
A: EDS is used to improve skin texture and tone, can reduce pore size and tighten the skin, and is one of our most effective treatments for blending surgical scarring and acne scars. Results can sometimes be seen as early as one week after treatment, and are visible at six weeks and often continues to improve for up to 6 months.
Q: How often should I have treatments?
A: While many people see results with just one treatment, we recommend 3-4 treatments, each about 6-8 weeks apart. After your initial course of treatments, you may choose to have a ‘refresh’ treatment once per year.
Q: What will I look like after?
A: Immediately after the treatment your skin will feel warm, like a sunburn. This settles quickly, usually within 24-48 hours.
Q: How can I best prepare my skin for EDS?
A: You will get the best results if you have great skin nutrition. We recommend using medical grade topical creams containing hyaluronic acid to keep the moisture in the skin. Use of Vitamins A and C are beneficial, although necessary to stop a few days before and after the treatment.
