Skin Needling Overview
Medik8 Titanium Skin Needling devices are the latest skin rejuvenation techniques to help restore a healthy, flawless and youthful appearance to the skin.
SAFE, SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
- Unsightly scars appear less obvious
- Helps to smooth away wrinkles, line, folds and skin ageing related concerns
- Dramatically increased absorption of active ingredients
- Efficacy of active skincare products maximised
Skin needling works through two modes of action:
- The needles penetrate through the skin to provide micro-channels to maximise the absorption of the topically applied skincare product
- The micro-channels induce independent stimulation of new collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting from the skin’s natural healing response. Ultimately, skin strength, structure and resilience
Similar results to Laser resurfacing, Fraxel and chemical peels with a broad range of advantages and benefits:
- Suitable for all skin types

- Can be used on thin skin formerly treated with chemical peels and laser
- Does not pose a risk of permanent skin discolouration
- Enhances Iontophoresis and Sonophoresis treatments
- Cost effective treatment alternative
- Short or no healing time
- Easy and safe to use
The only skin needling device comprised of precision engineered titanium needles that deliver the most pain-free treatment experience from the very first use to the very last.
Both the Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp can be re-used for up to six months making it an extremely cost effective alternative to many cosmetic treatments.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is a multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks.
It has a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium microneedles which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermastamp is an alternative, targeted form of skin needling, boasting the benefits of the Titanium Dermaroller but with enhanced precision for specific, localised skin problems and hard to reach areas. The Titanium Dermastamp has a circular head comprising 38 titanium microneedles with an enhanced grip for greater control and accuracy and suitable for use on the delicate under-eye and peri-oral areas.
This innovative device can be used in combination with the Dermaroller or as a separate treatment for independent skin concerns.
The procedure involved in treatment with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp is commonly known as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin. As you roll or stamp the device over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin.
The concept of Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp dramatically enhance the penetration of active ingredients from your topical creams and serums, leading to a massive increase in their efficacy.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp in conjunction with Medik8 cosmeceuticals stimulates new collagen production, thereby leading to a visible reduction of wrinkles and scars, as well as increase in skin firmness. Thickening of the skin caused by regular use of the Medik8 Titanium Skin Needling device significantly reduces the visibility of broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation.
Expect to see a visible improvement in skin appearance after just one month of regular use of the device.
When used as directed, the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller or Titanium Dermastamp will cause no or only small marks, and the marks will fade in just a few hours. Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller or Titanium Dermastamp treatments may cause a flush to your skin that will fade in a few hours, but will leave no long-lasting redness. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp available in 0.2mm and 0.3mm for home use, have sharp, durable titanium needles that do not cause appreciable pain or bleeding.
Skin needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal or no downtime, rapid healing and requires simple aftercare.

Most dermatological skin needling devices designed for use on facial skin are made from stainless steel, which can blunt easily with daily use. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp needles are engineered in Sweden from titanium alloy giving a finer and much more durable edge, eliminating excess irritation caused by ordinary steel needles.
Furthermore, each individual Medik8 Titanium microneedle is gold plated to maintain sterility. This technology produces extremely accurate and pinpoint punctures in the skin, with the aim of improving the treatment results, while ensuring user health and safety. No other skin needling device is made with titanium needles, so only the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp can be reused intensively for 3-6 months.
Studies indicate the Medik8 Titanium Skin Needling device needles need to penetrate the upper layer of skin for best results. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller and Titanium Dermastamp have a variety of needle lengths for optimum results without appreciable pain or injury.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is available in 2 versions for personal use. A 0.2mm version is recommended for people with very thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin, as well as for skin needling beginners.
