We know – WHAT? But, it’s not as scary as it sounds. Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few years, chances are you know what derma rolling is. If not, no judgements. We’re here to help you get in the know of how exactly derma rolling can halt signs of scarring and fine lines.
Derma rolling has been used by dermatologists for years now. It’s essentially about one hundred or so teeny tiny (VERY tiny) needles that you use on a roller across your skin. These needles cause micro abrasions on the top layers of your skin that make your body think it’s been injured. Your body is amazing- it’s natural reaction is to send collagen up to the surface of your skin, helping scars and wrinkles vanish over the course of a few weeks.
Now, DON’T be confused and make your own derma roller! These needles are super small, and should only be used with caution. You should only purchase your derma roller from a reliable source that is meant for skin (Our personal favorite is from OnlyLABeauty.com). This only works if you take the proper precautions to clean and use SCARCELY. You should not use a derma roller everyday. Your skin would never have a chance to heal itself.
Before every use you must sterilize the roller with alcohol. No, not the extra Malibu Rum or Smirnoff hanging out in your pantry. Preferably 99% alcohol, which can be purchased in the medical section of any local pharmacy. Only use a derma roller once you’ve cleansed your face thoroughly- leaving excess dirt before rolling could be risk for infection.
Also note; if you are using derma rolling for acne, please be sure you have no current cysts or pimples. If you roll over those, they can irritate your skin. If you do have acne, just roll around problem areas until the pimples heal.
Over the course of a month, 96% of people have noticed a difference in scars and wrinkles. Not only are these results fascinating; it also saves you MONEY. You can do these same services at a dermatologist and nearly break your bank, or you can do it home almost for free.
