It is known as micro-needling, a little roller with hundreds of needles attached is rolled over the skin to cause micro-wounding that stimulates the creation of collagen and healthy skin tissue. Dermarolling activates your self-healing mechanisms and rejuvenates aging or damaged skin. It has been used with tremendous success for acne scars, and is also used for wrinkles, stretch marks and even plumping lips.
You can also get a dermastamp which is not a roller, but a stamp with needles for more precise and targeted needling. Lastly, there is also something known as the dermapen which electronically pulses, kind of like a tattoo needle. Let’s leave this one to the professionals, mm’kay?
The size of your needles is important. Derma Rollers can have anywhere from 180 to 1000 microneedles on them. One of the most common sizes is the 540 needle roller. Fewer needles mean a smaller roller for a smaller area of the face and body and vice versa. If you get a shitty roller on Amazon, there is a good chance the needles will be too fat and dull – recipe for disaster. This has been the case with almost every dermaroller I have purchased on Amazon! Get an esthetician-quality roller, even if it costs more. Some resources below.
HOW TO USE:
If you need numbing cream, you’re probably doing it wrong. You don’t actually want to see any bleeding. Start light. Be careful not to drag the roller across your face, since that will create wounds that are too big, and will be counterproductive. Start with a needle that is .3 – .5mm, no bigger. Bigger does not mean better!
A good rule of thumb is to run the Derma Roller about 10 times over the area you’re looking to treat–this should take no more than a few minutes. The proper way to microneedle is to run the Derma Roller in every direction over the skin you’re treating. That means running the roller a few times from right to left, top to bottom and then diagonally over your lips or skin.
If you’re doing your whole face, divide it into areas, like the forehead, left cheek, right cheek, and chin.
