Dermarolling is painful. See how numbing cream can reduce pain and discomfort associated with dermarolling.
Dermarolling is a simple and affordable way to get rid of acne, wrinkles, saggy skin and age related problems. It works by creating tiny punctures on the skin which further triggers skin repair and cell generation process.
However, it can’t be denied that dermarolling hurt due to the use of the needles.

0.2 mm is the basic length of the needles and causes very little pain like tingling sensation.
With 0.5 mm needle size, you experience a mild pain or cat scratch.
0.75 mm needle can lead to extreme pain and even bleeding.
Pain with 1.00 mm needles is slightly tolerable.
1.5 MM to 3.0 MM:
