There are all kinds of home beauty treatments now available that promise youthful skin. The latest one is microneedling. This is a technique where a small device filled with tiny microneedles is rolled over the skin. Similar to a paint roller, the way it works is that every time the needles puncture the skin, this creates a wound. The skin then reacts to heal the wound with collagen and elastin which promotes new growth and youthful-looking skin.
This treatment used to be carried out in clinics only, but now you can buy derma-rollers so that you can microneedle at home. So which ones do we recommend?
Here are five of the best derma-rollers for microneedling at home:

Skin Medix offer 4 sizes of microneedle derma-rollers from 0.2mm to 1.5mm, all designed for different reasons. The smallest, 0.2mm is to help beauty products penetrate the skin and 1.5mm is for deep stretch marks. We’ve chosen this mid-range size which is for wrinkles and anti-ageing.
