Q - Are dermarollers painful to use?

A - This depends on the needle size, quality of the needles and the technique used. 0.5mm and even 0.75mm needles can be used on the face quite painlessly when using the correct techniques and high quality needles. The needles have to be well produced and extremely sharp as blunt needles can tear the skin.

All home use rollers come with complete instructions for use.
