Supercharge your skincare routine and boost results with a derma roller!
Why derma roll?
This is because as we age and enter our 30s, collagen production begins to decline. The small needles in the derma roller can stimulate the production and reorganisation of collagen fibers in your skin, effectively plumping up fine lines and wrinkles and reducing the appearance of signs of aging.
What are the benefits of derma rolling?
- Increased hydration
- Smoother and softer skin
- Reduced redness and inflammation
- Improved collagen production and tighter looking skin
- Improved product absorption from ingredients in skincare products
- Reduced appearance of scars
- Reduced appearance of fine lines
- Minimising appearance of pore size
- Improving overall skin tone and lightening of hyperpigmentation
Whether you are looking to improve the effectiveness of your regular skincare routine or simply want to give your skin a boost, using a derma roller on a regular basis can be an effective way to achieve these goals.
It only takes a maximum of two minutes just once a week and can be done in the comfort of your home!
What type of dermaroller can I choose?
There are many different types of rollers available, so you can find one that is best suited for your needs. At home derma rollers generally average between 0.25mm to 1.00mm length in micro needles for deeper scars and wrinkles.
And if you're wondering if dermarolling hurts, then you'll be pleased to hear that a short micro-needle dermaroller like 0.3mm in length will be painless.
Although this shorter length won't provide as effective results as the deeper micro needles, you can start from this length and work your way up.
Our recommendation is to go for the medium level micro-needle derma roller: a 0.5mm microneedle derma roller to target mild to moderate acne scarring, hyperpigmentation to glow up your skin!
With a 0.5mm micro needle derma roller, your skin will feel tiny pricks but it will still be painless and if comparable to any feeling, I would say it feels more like using a course body scrub on your skin.
How often to derma roll?
Our favourite thing about dermarolling is that it only takes a maximum of two minutes just once a week and can be done in the comfort of your home!
Using a derma roller to enhance product absorption
Always make sure to follow your derma roller session with skincare products that help with the regeneration of your skin. Look for ingredients that hydrate, heal and deliver active benefits to your skin such as Niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, bakuchiol and Vitamin C (in Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate form to avoid irritation).
It is important to properly clean, disinfect and sanitise your dermaroller with a sanitising spray made up of at least 70% isopropyl alcohol.
We also recommend replacing your dermaroller every 4-5 months if used regularly to keep the micro-needles effective and avoid damage on skin school as scratches, bruising, inflammation and infections.
As always, please consult with a dermatologist before starting any new skincare routine. Dermarolling is not recommended for anyone who is has history of eczema, open wounds, active acne and blood clots.
