Build More Collagen with At-Home Micro Dermal Roller Treatments

MTS-Roller Products - Google Chrome_2015-03-18_14-14-23We recently mentioned Dr. Brandy’s love of Dermal Infusion with the Micro Dermal Roller on our Facebook page. Many of our Facebook fans wanted to know more about the device―so, we are happy to cover this collagen-building treatment (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) in more detail, as promised.

The Micro Dermal Roller is a hand-held device with over 200 very fine bristles or needles. This gadget is designed for home use. By gently rolling it over your face, the bristles creates microscopic channels in the skin, allowing for increased absorption of your favorite topical serums, lotions and prescription-grade Retin-A.

Two Treatments in One

With Dermal Infusion Therapy, you get two equally impressive treatments from one device. First, the Micro Dermal roller creates more than 1000 times the penetration of anti-aging ingredients deep into the dermis, where they are most effective. At the same time, the roller’s bristles stimulate the body’s natural collagen production—to plump, tighten and tone your skin through the healing process.


  • Increases the effectiveness of skincare products
  • Improves your skin’s texture, tone and pore size
  • Smooths acne scars
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Recommended Usage

We recommend that you begin use of the roller once a week for the first week, then twice the second week and three times per week on the third week of use. This gives your skin time to adapt to treatments.

  1. After cleansing, apply your topical serum, lotion or prescription-grade Retin-A.
  2. Gently roll Micro Dermal Roller over the skin a number of times to ensure effective absorption of your products.
  3. Apply additional topical product, if necessary.
  4. Use cosmeceutical-grade skincare for best results.
  5. Body treatments can be done at home as well.

Note: Your skin may appear slightly pinkish and tender to the touch following treatment. This is quite normal. This treatment should not cause bleeding.

Expected Results

As new collagen is formed you’ll start to notice more toned and tightened skin with a improved texture and pore size. With regular use (three times per week) you should start seeing results in about 4-6 weeks. For more dramatic skin resurfacing. Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is the MedSpa treatment that achieves quick results over a series of sessions.

Are You a Candidate?

The Micro Dermal Roller is suitable for all skin types―and ideal if you wish to slow the onset of the aging process or improve the appearance of existing skin laxity, scarring or fine lines and wrinkles.

Micro Dermal Rollers, Dr. Brandy’s own Retin-A compound (specially formulated for minimal flaking) and a wide range of cosmeceutical-grade skincare products are available at your nearest Skin Center location.
