Derma Roller is a Micro Needling device an instrument consisting of a heavy duty roller head covered in 540 high quality titanium acupuncture needles. It is a Revolutionary beauty device proven safe and effective that is known worldwide and being used by Top A-list Hollywood actress and Celebrities and World Renowned Derma clinics.
How It Works
The Dermaroller causes multiple tiny needle wounds to the dermis, which in turn, tells the skin to make new collagen and elastin to heal itself. Therefore over a period of time (12-16 weeks) there will be significant improvement (up to 70-80%) on the apperance and texture of acne scars, stretchmarks etc as the turn over process continues!
The Micro Needling roller has the following actions. The needles are designed to penetrate the stratum corneum, the hard outer surface of the epidermal layer of the skin, body or scalp. Hundreds of tiny channels are created through the stratum corneum, which facilitate the passage and absorption of your skin care product into the dermis, to maximize its absorption. It gently exfoliates excess skin cells improves appearance of scars or premature aging, wrinkles, stretch marks, cellulite and scars. The roller stimulates blood flow to the surface, gives a skin massage, cleans out the pores and stimulates collagen re-growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dermarolling has been increasing in popularity as a DIY method for tackling a myriad of common skin problems. Many testify its effectiveness in significantly improving the condition of their skin, clearing up marks and bringing back elasticity once thought lost. That has made dermarollers fairly popular, but there are certain questions that must be answered before you proceed with buying one for yourself.
- How can a dermaroller improve one’s skin? Each dermaroller has sterilized surgical needles that make tiny prick marks on the skin when rolled, which then encourage healing afterwards. You’re basically telling the body to pay more attention to those parts of the skin, promoting healing of both the new damage caused by the dermaroller along with old damage by increased production of collagen and elastin.
- Is a dermaroller effective for stretch marks and cellulite? While the dermaroller was originally designed for skin problems on the face, beauty clinics and frequent users then started to use it on other parts of the body and have reported significant effectiveness on stretch marks and wrinkles. Since it encourages increased production in collagen and elastin, that’s pretty much what helps make wrinkles, stretch marks, and unsightly cellulite disappear.
- Is it painful? It’s generally not painful, although you do experience mild pricking sensations. It’s more intense with longer needle lengths, but it’s nothing that’s too unmanageable. If you have a particular fear of needles, you may need some help with using a dermaroller, but it shouldn’t be too serious (it may even cure your fear eventually with repeated use).
- Does it make the skin bleed? There should be a slight bleeding since you’re piercing your skin with needles, after all. As long as you don’t apply too much pressure with the dermaroller, it shouldn’t be too bad. If you’re particularly afraid at the sight of blood, then you’ll need to find someone to help you. Bleeding is common with dermaroller use, so you should apply light to moderate pressure. It’s deliberate controlled damaging of the skin, so there will obviously be a bit of blood involved.
- Is it safe for home use? As long as you follow instructions carefully, use it on clean skin, and clean the dermaroller properly after each use, then you should be able to make use of it in the comfort of your own home without complications. As long as you know what you’re doing and use it moderately, you should be fine.
- How often should the dermaroller be used? You’ll need to wait for several days to let your skin heal completely between treatments using the 0.25 to 0.3 mm needles. If you’re using the 0.5 mm needles, use it once a week or once a month, depending on how quick your skin heals. If it’s 0.75 mm or more, you’ll need at least a full 30 days and up to 6 weeks for your skin to fully heal.
- What needle size should be used? If you’re using a dermaroller merely to enhance the absorption of your skin care products, then 0.25 to 0.3 mm should be fine. For treating shallow imperfections and stimulate collagen production regularly, using 0.5 mm needles is ideal. For treating moderate to deep scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and other significant imperfections on the face, you may want to use 0.75 to 1 mm needles. Please avoid needles that are 1.5 mm or more on the face as they’re designed for only the body. Improper use of needles that are 1.5 to 3 mm long can lead to serious damage; they should only be administered by trained professionals.
- How much can a dermaroller be used before disposing? You should be able to get more than 15 treatments out of a dermaroller when handled properly. But if you drop it and needles are bent, you might as well replace it with a new one. If you’re using it regularly on your body, which should heal more quickly, then you may have to replace it every 2 to 3 months since the rest of your body has thicker skin compared to the face. Also, don’t share a dermaroller with others. Remember to never ever share needles; that rule of thumb is not just limited to hypodermic needles.
- Are all dermarollers the same? Most dermarollers have similar basic parts, which are the handle, the roller, and the needles. Different dermarollers may have different configurations, like with the angle of the handles and the width of the rollers. The number of needles and the gap between each of them may vary as well. Of course, there are also the different needle sizes to choose from. You may ask your dermatologist for more information on choosing the right dermaroller for you.
- Are there other uses for dermarollers? Other than things like scar removal and anti-aging, some believe that it can help with hair loss treatment. Some claim that it can reduce hair loss by 80% over a 3-month period. Most likely, it can at least mitigate hair loss like how it can encourage healing in damaged and blemished skin. But do note that results may vary with every individual; some may experience regrowth of hair while others may only be able to slow the hair loss. Please consult your dermatologist first if you have concerns with using dermarollers to treat your hair loss.
Dermarolling can indeed be an effective treatment for various skin problems, as long as they’re used properly and moderately. But do know that it does have its limitations, so you should still consult a dermatologist if you have more serious skin problems. Happy rolling!
