If you are looking to step up your skincare regimen and enhance the results of the skincare products you use at home, micro-needling is an easy way to achieve amazing results. Simply using a "derma-roller" for a few extra minutes 2-4 times per week will enhance the effectiveness and absorption of facial serums into your skin.
What is a derma-roller?
These little hand-held devices look a lot like miniature paint rollers covered in small metal needles. The purpose of micro-needling is to help stimulate collagen production and to increase the absorption of skin-care products. They are especially effective with the use of face serums from the French cult skincare favorite Biologique Recherche and Environ Skincare C-Quence collection. These targeted serums will address many skin issues from fine lines and wrinkles to hydration to hyper-pigmentation. Used properly, they will not hurt or damage skin and greatly enhance the performance of your skincare products. They will also offer a gentle exfoliation similar to a microdermabrasion treatment. Most derma-rollers needles are 0.2 mm in length.
The gold standard of rollers is the Environ Gold Roll-CIT. It is a handheld 14 ct gold plated roller that has 260 ultra-fine needles of the highest grade surgical 316 stainless steel. The needles are 0.2 mm in length. The gold plated roller's gold coating also offers the added benefit of naturally suppressing bacterial growth.
How to use your derma-roller?
Needling instruments are specially crafted for use on areas of your face that demand extra special care such as the delicate skin around your eyes, nose, and mouth. The micro-needling technique is easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Simply roll vertically, horizontally, and diagonally over your entire face for two minutes before cleansing. Follow with your normal skincare regimen. Ideal to do two to four times a week. You can use any serum or oil with your derma-roller and tailor your treatment to your own skin type. Using the right corrective serums, micro-needling is an effective, powerful way to prevent the aging process and create a youthful glow.
Do derma-rollers really work?
Many estheticians use derma-rollers and micro-needling techniques when performing professional facial services. Their tools often offer a deeper micro-needling technique and are commonly used with microdermabrasion. They offer spa-like treatment results but should only be used by licensed professionals. However, the at-home version is an excellent way to maintain the results you see from a professional facial in between visits. The consensus among professionals and at-home users is that derma-rollers work and are an effective way to take your skincare regimen to the next level.
