Do dermarollers work? Is dermarolling the same as microderm abrasion? Does micro-needling treat wrinkles? The short answer? Yes, no and absolutlely! The long answer - derma rollers are the leading at home cosmetic tool for collagen induction therapy. Collagen induction therapy works by creating microwounds on the surface of the skin, stimulating the skin into producing collagen and elastin. The resulting increase in collagen will add fullness, reduce wrinkles, and tighten your skin.
Like many women, you want to know exactly what a derma roller does and what microneedling can do for your skin. Our clients report 6 common benefits...
Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles
With proper derma roller use (if you don't know how, you must read our FAQ's - How to Use a Dermaroller) our Facebook fans have told us that they've seen significant reduction in wrinkles, have treated their crow's feet, and have reduced their smile lines. In fact, we've published several before and after photos on our Instagram.
Calling all women over 40 - would you like to discover the fountain of youth? Microneedling can help regain fullness in your face and cheeks and smooth lines in your neck. The strong anti-aging effects are ideal to begin at a young age to fight the onset of fine lines.
Eliminate Stretch Marks
After 2 children, I understand - and hate - stretch marks. Don't waste your money on expensive treatments that promise (and don't deliver) to prevent stretchmarks. If you know how to use a 1.0 mm dermaroller properly, you can treat - and even remove stretch marks.
Increase Absorption Rate of Your Favorite Products
Nothing is worse then spending a couple hundred of your hard earned dollars on a bottle of La Mer... and learning that just 4 - 8% of it is being absorbed by your skin. And it's not their fault - the skin is designed to prevent pollutants and free radicals from entering your body. The thing is - what if you want something to enter? Dermarolling is the best treatment for this. By microneedling properly, you can increase absorption rates up to 97%... allowing you to more effective at home anti-aging treatments and to save money on skincare!
Dermarolling - Does it Hurt?
Nope! Dermarollers are safe, easy to use and effective at home treatments for aging. And if you have sensitive skin, you can apply a numbing cream to help. Most users will feel a slight pricking sensation.
Just 10 Minutes A Month
How long do I dermaroll? Is dermarolling effective if I use microneedling once a month? The answer is yes. There are several schools of thought, but many suggest that you use derma rolling (and for that matter, microderm abrasion) once a month.
We highly recommend dermarolling to all of our clients. Many salons and private spas will charge upwards of $100 per treatment. You can use our at home Dermarollers for as low as $20 a month. Or check out our best selling 1.0 needles and 0.5 needles derma roller bundle.
