Microneedles and Dermarollers

Skin Rejuvenation Willowbrook, ILNot impressed after buying a new product? We hear you. That new mask may help clear up your acne or brighten your complexion, but it takes constant use of products to leave lasting results. That’s why we recommend looking at professional treatments. They are expertly applied and utilized by people who know skin. Also, often professionals are able to access better ingredients and tools to help improve the look of skin. Keep reading for the differences between microneedle treatments and the at-home microneedle device called a dermaroller.


First and foremost comes safety. We want to make sure your skin is taken care of so it looks better than you imagined. To make that happen, we clean and sterilize our tools, and make sure everything is in good working condition. Microneedles must be taken care of to give you the best results.

Dermarollers might end up getting tossed into a drawer with brushes and makeup, which is a good way to cause damage to your skin. Those little needles can bend, and then tear your skin when you roll the dermaroller over your skin. Keeping your dermaroller sterilized is important, too, since you can transfer bacteria and cause breakouts and other issues if you use an unclean dermaroller.


Professional microneedle devices can go deeper into the skin, penetrating the dermis layer and stimulating collagen production. This is one of the best reasons to receive a microneedle treatment, because more collagen makes you look young and refreshed.

Dermarollers bought online do not reach down into the dermis layer of the skin, so they only cause small surface-level holes in the skin. They allow better penetration of products, which is how we recommend using them.


We love the results of microneedle treatments, because they combine the best of the best. Microneedle treatments can reduce fine lines, lighten scarring, and improve collagen production so you look younger.

Dermarollers can improve the effectiveness of your favorite products, but don’t reach deep enough to improve collagen production.

If you’re looking for a more youthful appearance, call us today at (630) 568-3862 to schedule a microneedle consultation!
