What is microneedling?
Many people wonder what it is microneedling and what it is derma rolling. Derma rolling and micro needling are the same thing, but the names come from different words. Microneedling (also micro-needling) or Dermarolling (also derma-rolling) is a beauty treatment where very thin needles puncture the skin, causing micro wounds and provoking the skin-healing process. The micro-needling term comes from microneedles attached to the device used for that beauty treatment. The derma-rolling term comes from the device name, which is a derma roller.
