EDS stands for Electro Derma Stamp and is a form of skin-needling treatment which is used to revitalise the skin.
The treatment works by intentionally creating a series of tiny little ‘wounds’ in the skin’s surface. This stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally by producing new collagen and skin cells.
The procedure is a safe and injection-free method to create smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.
How does EDS Work?
Electronic Professional Skin Needling
The eDermastamp™ is a German engineered and Class IIa medical device from the makers of the Genuine Dermaroller™.
Electronic professional skin needling produces thousands of micro-needle columns in the skin, which in turn stimulates the skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself.
So what does that mean for your skin?
These tiny micro-columns close up quickly while your skin’s natural processes are kick-started under the surface. As part of this stimulation new collagen can be formed, new skin cells generated and the structure of the skin, enhanced.
This natural process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results – although some improvements can be seen much sooner. The process will continue over the following months and several treatments are usually required.
There are two EDS treatments available at Quinn Clinics:
- EDS Revitalise, which uses shorter needle lengths to target the top layer of skin leaving it plumper with fewer fine lines, brighter with a glowing complexion and smoother with an improved texture.
- EDS Regenerate, a more intensive treatment using longer needle lengths to leave skin tighter and firmer with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, brighter with improved luminosity and reduced pigmentation and even an improvement in the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
Your practitioner will advise which treatment best suits your skin and your needs.

EDS vs Dermaroller – What’s the Difference?
The difference between EDS and Dermaroller therapy is that EDS is a very much more focused application which can be used to precisely target deep creases or specific areas of concern; whereas Dermaroller can be used over a larger area. EDS uses a precise tool whereas Dermaroller uses a roller device.
