Do you want young and beautiful skin?
The derma roller (also called a skin roller or microneedle roller) is best known for eliminating cellulite, wrinkles, pigmentation and acne.
It might sound too good to be true. But it’s not. The micro-needling technique improves the look of your skin by creating small punctures in the skin which stimulate the collagen process.
You can use the derma roller at home and whenever you feel like.Achieve visible reduction of wrinkles, orange peel skin (also called cellulite), scars, pigmentation changes and pimples with a dermaroller. At Fashiongirl you will find skin rollers and dermarollers for use on the body and face. Your skin will appear more even and smooth after a few treatments.
What is a dermaroller?A dermaroller is popular beauty tool that has a roller with needles at one end. It may look scary, but in reality it's just scary good. It harnesses the body's own regenerative capacity to improve skin's appearance. When the dermaroller is rolled over the skin, it creates hundreds of micro-holes that cause the skin to start healing and produce new skin cells. This means the skin is rejuvenated every time you use a dermaroller. At the same time, you stimulate the body's natural production of elastin and collagen, so skin appears firmer and plumper.
How does a treatment work?
Before you start the treatment, you need to clean both your skin and your dermaroller. This is very important to avoid the transmission of bacteria and possible infections. Clean your skin roller with chlorhexidine, for example, both before and after use. Once the skin and roller are clean, you are ready to go.
Roll the dermaroller over the skin vertically, horizontally and diagonally. Remember to lift the roller after each stroke so you create more new holes in the skin rather than rolling in the same holes and making them bigger. Roll several times in the same place, but no more than 4 times. All our dermarollers are made of titanium and are incredibly sharp. You therefore don't need to press hard with the roller. Let the roller do the work by rolling gently.
After the treatment, the skin has up to 200 times better absorption capacity. It is therefore a good idea to apply a good cream, oil or serum to the skin. Products with ingredients such as peptides, retinol, hyaluron and egf are ideal to use after a treatment. Avoid products with a lot of perfume, parabens and dyes, because they penetrate deeper into the skin after using the dermaroller.
Does it hurt to use a dermaroller?
Of course, everyone has different pain thresholds and may perceive a treatment differently. But it is very important that a treatment does not hurt. When the derma roller is rolled over the skin, you will feel a painless tingling sensation. You will also feel some tingling of the skin after the treatment, and this is perfectly normal. This is because the immune system is already reacting to the many micro-potholes and is in the process of repairing them.
Does it work at all?
Yes! It works from the very first prick with the dermaroller because the body will always repair itself. However, how quickly and how effectively depends on a few different circumstances. For example, where on the body the derma roller is used and what it is used for (e.g. stretch marks, scars, discolourations). The length of the needles also plays a role, as well as whether you use cream, oil or serum after the treatment.
Can everyone use it?You should avoid using the skin roller on:
- Active acne
- Open wounds
- Skin infections
- Skin diseases such as psoriasis
- Lips and eyelids
Maintaining your dermaroller
It is very important that you clean your dermaroller both before and after use. This reduces the transmission of bacteria and the risk of possible infections. The dermaroller should be replaced every 3 months because the needles can become dull and therefore less effective.
Remember that the dermaroller is personal. You must not borrow anyone else's or lend your own. Even if it is cleaned, you cannot be sure that it is completely clean. By sharing, you or your friend may risk transmitting foreign bacteria that can cause infection.
Choose the right skin rollerThere are differences in which dermaroller to use, depending on which skin problem you want to improve.
The most commonly used for home use is 0.5mm because it can remedy most skin problems located in the top layers of the skin such as wrinkles, open pores, pigmentation defects and acne scars. Do not use needles longer than 1mm on the face because it can cause permanent damage to the skin if used incorrectly. However, if you want to reduce, for example, orange peel skin, stretch marks or scars on the body, we recommend a needle length of 1mm in the places where the skin is thickest, for example, on the thighs and buttocks.
When choosing your dermaroller, think about the area it will be used on and what you want to treat. If your skin is very thin where you want to treat, it is a good idea to use a shorter needle length, and vice versa if your skin is thick in the chosen area.
