Have you ever wondered about #microneedling or getting a #dermaroller ? There are a few things you must know before you get started.
There is an epidemic of very low quality rollers coming from China and Korea on Amazon which aren’t even filled with needles, but rather blades, and you can be sure they contain a “random” mix of metals instead of surgical steel. What does this mean? If you have ever bought a roller off amazon, or some random website claiming to be “FDA or CE” approved, this is probably what you bought, even if it looks exactly like the one in this photo!
My advice? Let the pro’s find the medical rollers for you and guide you on how to use them properly. 9/10 people I meet with are either using a counterfeit roller or not using the right products with it. There is no use of “dry rolling”, or using products not designed to basically be injected into the skin. Use research backed skin care items to make sure you’re getting the most out of your derma rolling efforts.
Derma rolling can be helpful for acne, brown spots, fine lines wrinkles and thickening the skin. It’s a great at home treatment to maintain your results between laser treatments, but on it’s own you might be a little disappointed. The good news is that microneedling does create a denser form of collagen than laser treatments do, but lasers will generally clear up things like brown spots, wrinkles and acne much faster. They work great together!
