What is a derma roller?

Derma rollers have been used by professionals for ages to maximise skin health and improve skin’s natural repair processes. A derma roller is a small handheld wheel with surgical-grade steel needles built into its surface. These needles are designed to gently penetrate the surface of the skin, kicking skin’s natural healing processes into high gear. This unique tool works to stimulate circulation, triggering signals within the skin to yield a reduction in the appearance of visible ageing, acne, blackheads, sun damage, and pigmentation. When the roller is used, the healing process also speeds up the production of collagen and elastin while accelerating cell turnover. The result? Skin that is brighter, tighter, more evenly toned, and texturally smoother. This product can also enhance the effectiveness of Skinstitut’s top-quality skincare products, promoting a fresh, youthful complexion with improved skin tone and texture.

How do I use the Skinstitut Derma Roller?

It’s important to use any skincare tool exactly as intended and directed, particularly one with needles attached. Ensure you’re following all the steps listed when using the Skinstitut Derma Roller to minimise potential damage that can occur during use.


Always prep your skin before using a derma roller.

  1. Cleanse skin thoroughly, ensuring no product residue is left behind.

  2. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

  3. If you’re a first-time roller or you have sensitive skin, apply a correcting serum first (Skinstitut Rejuvenate 15 is a great option).

  4. Follow the rolling technique outlined below.

To properly use the Skinstitut Derma Roller, follow these steps:

  1. Roll the tool horizontally in a back-and-forth motion over a small section of skin.

  2. Repeat this process in a vertical pattern. For skins without sensitivity issues and those looking for a more active delivery of skin treatments, follow derma rolling with an application of any serum suited to your skin’s primary issue.

  3. Follow with a moisturiser that suits your skin.

Who is the Skinstitut Derma Roller for?

Skinstitut’s Derma Roller is perfect for use on all skin types. Those with severe acne scarring, uneven texture and tone, hyperpigmentation, and loss of volume or elasticity will benefit most from the use of this product. Those with sensitive skin will want to ease gently into their use of this product, though skin will adjust after several uses. Ensure you’re wearing a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 during use, as the Skinstitut Derma Roller will leave skin in a temporarily sensitised state. Those using intensive skincare treatments will also want to be careful with their frequency of use of the Skinstitut Derma Roller. Inflammation and irritation can occur if rolling is done too frequently in conjunction with other treatments.

So, go forth in a fresh new complexion with the Skinstitut Derma Roller! No need for a trip to the spa—you’re all set in the comfort of your own bathroom with Skinstitut.


My beauty therapist who is all about natural skincare had previously recommended this and I was a bit reluctant to try it out. But I saw it on sale and thought I’d give it a go, and I am so glad I did! It makes me sneeze like crazy with the first few rolls, I went bright red the first use and thought “oh no, what have I done?” But I awoke the next morning to the most plump, bright skin ever! I actually have to stop myself using it every day because I’m so impressed with the results. If you are the type of person to invest in a high-end serum then you need this tool. It helps the serum soak in so much better and you honestly wake up glowing. ★★★★★ - Sophia
