Everything you need to know before we get rollling
It is essentially a DIY anti-aging and skin regeneration tool meant to gently puncture the skin and induce your body's own natural collagen and elastin production. These 2 hormones are directly responsible for your skin's health, elasticity and youthfulness. The natural surge of these hormones caused by dermarolling is what allows your skin to start repair itself from within.
This prompts the skins healing process, leading to skin regeneration and to the production of anti-ageing substances like collagen and elastin.
Over the next 5 days, the collagen produced by the body is deposited in the area on treated skin. This helps the skin to become firmer and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, stretch marks, wrinkles and scars.
⁃ Removes dead skin cells ⁃ Improves the effectiveness of your serum and skin care products
- Opens blocked pores of the sebaceous glands
⁃ Can reduce the size of pores
- Stimulates the skins own production fo collagen
⁃ Promotes blood circulation
⁃ Reduced acne scarring and skin discolouration
⁃ Improved signs of ageing
⁃ Increased skin thickness
⁃ Facial rejuvenation
⁃ Skin tightening
⁃ Hair regrowth
Please note, different size needles are recommended for different areas. For example, lips - 0.3mm; for stretch marks on your hips - 1mm. Take a look at this helpfull guide.
While it goes without saying, take extra care when using the derma roller near your eyes, your mouth and other sensitive areas.
0.5mm - For fine lines, mild wrinkles, scarring and sun damage. Improves mild to moderate scars, hyperpigmentation, hair loss, wrinkles and acne scars.
1mm - For moderate to deep acne scars, stretch marks, scarring, skin tightening after giving birth or weight loss, hyperpigmentation, hair loss and deeper wrinkles.
NOTE: If you are unsure, 0.5mm is the most versatile length providing you do not have overly sensitive skin.
How To Use
Because dermarollers are made with hundreds of tiny medical grade titanium needles, you may in rare cases experience slight discomfort, however even at the most extreme cases it is definitely less painful than having your eyebrows waxed.
95% of users reported only a mild moderate prickly feeling.
Whether dermarolling is painful or not really depends on what needle length dermaroller is being used.
*Just Rolll With It* dermaroller needles are relatively short - 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 1mm so it actually doesn’t pierce the skin deep enough to hurt - only enough to get collagen and elastin boosting results.
Permanent reduction in wrinkles and scars occurs when new collagen and elastin are stimulated, and new skin is generated.
You will usually see significant results within 4 to 8 treatments.
In fact, you can save quite a bit of time by spot treating the problematic areas.
For example, acne scars don’t often cover the entire face but are usually found on the cheeks.
Or if, for example, you wish to treat wrinkles on your forehead, you can simply focus your rolling efforts there and you’re done! There’s no need to roll the entire face unless you want to.
However, the longer the needle, the more chance you have to experience very slight bleeding in areas where the skin is closer to the bone.
If there is no blood, do not worry, the treatment is working - its the damage to the dermis that counts - and this can't be judged by wether or not you bleed.
For example, a 1mm roller used once a month, would last 15 months whereas a 0.5mm roller used once a week will last around 15 weeks.
Think of it in the same terms as a precision razor, with continuous use the needles will eventually start to wear and require replacement.
