Dermaroller: To roll or not to roll? Full Review and Thoughts

The What:

Dermaroller: (N) (also known as a skin roller or microneedle roller) A handheld device with microscopic needles on a roller used to stimulate the production of skins collagen and elastin.

The Why:

If you’re on social media at all chances are you’ve heard about or seen a Dermaroller. They look like a paint roller on steroids, which sounds bad but roll with me on this one. (See what I did there?) 

Dermaroller devices contain tiny needles that you gently roll across your skin, it sounds worse than it is. They’re popular among estheticians, beauty bloggers, and skin care enthusiasts alike. 

Dermarollers can be used to treat a myriad of different skin care conditions and concerns including but not limited to: fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, Rosacea, acne, large pores, thin skin, etc. 

When you roll those tiny little needles across your face you make microscopic holes or “injuries” in your skin prompting the skins natural healing process. By doing so your skin naturally begins to produce collagen and elastin to repair those tiny holes. By doing so it helps to repair the conditions above by reversing the breakdown in the top layers of your skin, thus rejuvenating your skin to look healthy and glowing sans the chemicals. 

Using a Dermaroller also helps your skin absorb any topical treatments you apply making them more effective. The best part? There aren’t any lengthy or costly procedures, no downtime to recover, you can use a Dermaroller in the comforts of your own home AND Dermaroller Systems stimulate collagen production without damaging the top layer of your skin. Are you sold? I am, I love my Dermaroller!

       This is a win for Team Skin Care! Although, I have a few words of wisdom: 

  • This system isn’t a miracle worker, it took time for your skin to develop wrinkles/fine lines/sun spits/etc. it will take time to repair it. 

  • Make sure you sanitize your Dermaroller after each use, pour 70%-90% isopropyl alcohol over the needles and allow it to air dry before storing. 

  • DONT share your Dermaroller, it’s too easy to share and spread bacteria and you definitely don’t want that getting under your skin.

The How To:

Using a Dermaroller System is ridiculously easy:

Hold your Dermaroller by the handle, on each section of your face and necklace make a pass going verticle, horizontal, and diagonal in both directions like an X. Once you’ve finished be sure to apply your favorite collagen serum, cream, sheet mask etc. That’s it! 

If you’re interested in trying one for yourself I recommend this brand: Dermaroller System

The whole micro-needling thing can be intimidating, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop them down below. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Stay Fabulous Beauties✌🏻
