5 Derma Roller Myths: Misconceptions Debunked

In News

Derma rolling has been around for a while, but it seems like there are still plenty of misconceptions out there about this skincare tool. From fears about pain and injury to myths about what it can (or can't) do for your skin, there are all sorts of ideas floating around that simply aren't true.

In this blog post, we're going to set the record straight by debunking five of the most common derma roller myths. So if you're curious about this popular skincare technique but feeling a little skeptical, read on – we'll separate fact from fiction and help you understand what derma rolling is really all about.


Myth No. 1: Derma rolling or micro needling should be left to professionals


We believe that often the opposite is true for several reasons. First, Skin Needling is a quick and relatively simple treatment which can be carried out at home, safely. Second, Beauty salons and clinics usually offer a set of 2-3 micro needling treatments using longer needles which is, a) very expensive, b) painful, c) not as effective long-term as treatment is not often repeated or maintained, d) ongoing treatments require planning, salon visits and are time consuming.

In our experience, skin needling rollers should be used often and in small doses – around once a week for roughly 2-3 months before real improvements can be seen. Ongoing top up treatments are recommended once a month for optimal, long-term results, making at home derma rolling a no brainer. Roll anytime, whether you’re at home, away for work or on holiday, a derma roller is a tool that you can take anywhere with you.

Myth No. 2: Derma Rolling is Painful


It simply is not. Pain levels are subjective, since naturally some people are more physically sensitive than others, but the truth is that over time many people find the sensation to be addictive and enjoyable, especially with the 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 1.0mm needles.


Myth No. 3: Derma Rolling won't work if you don't use topical products 


Derma Rolling on its own works wonders in triggering collagen production, tightening the skin and repairing lines and wrinkles. Topical products are not required, however it sure does help to supercharge your results. It is optional but recommended. Post rolling moisturizing is advised – feel free to follow up with your usual skincare products, Vitamin C, Vitamin E or Hyaluronic acid. Please note,  Vitamin A (retinol) should not be used for at least 72 hours post derma rolling.

Myth No. 4: All derma rollers are the same.


Huge NO NO! Derma Roller quality depends on the type of materials used in the production process. Generic derma rollers are often made in unsterile environment using the cheapest possible materials, low grade steel or cheap titanium and toxic, non-recyclable or flimsy plastic. They are produced in batches of 50000+, not properly sterilized, often not inspected for quality or functionality. These rollers pose huge risk to your skin and we strongly advise buying derma rollers from only reputable, certified brands and avoiding cheap, mass produced rollers you find on eBay or Amazon. Cost is generally an indication of the quality and you can’t expect a $10 product to be safe, durable and properly made.


Myth No. 5: Derma Rolling is a gimmick and it doesn’t work


It most certainly does work and will deliver fantastic results! It is ironically one of the very few real skincare gems that deliver significant improvements naturally. Dermarolling for collagen production and skin rejuvenation is a simple biological process. It relies on your body’s own repair and rejuvenation processes. Just think about it – when you graze your knee, your body heals the injury and you end up with brand new skin in the area. When you dermaroll, you create thousands of microscopic and painless microinjuries which in return repair and rejuvenate your skin in the treated area. There are 100’s of medical research articles relating to the effectiveness of it and it is widely used by skin professional worldwide.
