What is a Dermaroller?
A cosmetic handheld device which consists of a roller (containing 192 micro-needles) and a handle which is used to treat a range of skin conditions. It is applied to the skin where it stimulates the body into producing collagen and elastin as a repair mechanism.This extra collagen production helps to thicken and reverse aging, thinning skin and smooth and fill in depressed scars - even surgical scars.

Jennifer Aniston reportedly uses the dermaroller treatment to give herself a fresh faced,natural look. The dermaroller stimulates cells to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin. It can be used on the face, neck and hands and is extremely effective at reducing stretchmarks and acne scarring.Angelina Jolie is reported to have tried derma roller therapy after being introduced to it by husband Brad Pitt, who is himself thought to have undergone a series of treatments to combat acne scars.
