Must-Know Facts About Dermaroller

When I first heard of a skin treatment called Derma Roller I thought it was a joke. I mean, seriously? People pay to have a roller full of tiny needles go over their face/body? Um… I don’t think so. However, after doing research I find that I’m not afraid and I’m ready to give it a try! Check out Must-Know Facts About Dermaroller.  (Would you give it a try?)


Dermaroller treatments are specific ways to treat skin problems like wrinkles. They involve the use of needles to stimulate skin repairs from within the body. If you think that you want to try Dermaroller then the first thing you should know is that you can do the treatments on yourself at home or choose to go to a clinic for more intense treatments. Here are some other must-know facts about Dermarollers.

Dermaroller Types and Needle Sizes Matter

The first thing you should know is that not all Dermarollers are exactly alike. Some of them have longer needles than others. Those that you might find in a skincare clinic typically have the longest needles, and that’s a good thing. Deep tissue stimulation should only be performed by trained skincare clinicians in a sterile environment. At home, Dermaroller needles should be smaller and used more to stimulate healing in the top layers of skin and treat minor skin problems before they become worse.

Dermarollers Can Work When Lasers Won’t

Lasers and some other machines for skincare and skin treatment techniques are wonderful under some circumstances. But they can actually damage the skin more in other circumstances. For example, treatments involving lasers or other heat sources can burn skin that is excessively oily. That makes those treatments bad choices for that group of patients. Those with oily skin and other skin problems don’t have to worry about staying away from Dermarollers because the treatment involves no major heat source.

She looks happy, right?

Dermaroller Treatment is an Inexpensive Way to Improve Skin Health

Even if you decide to have clinical Dermaroller treatment, another advantage is that it will be a comparatively inexpensive treatment. It doesn’t cost as much as most laser procedures or a lot of other skincare options. So, if you’re looking for a great skincare treatment while on a tight budget, Dermaroller could be your perfect solution.

How to Do Dermaroller Treatments Yourself at Home

When opting for home Dermaroller treatment, the first big question is which Dermaroller to buy. You can get a good idea of which ones work the best by reading reviews online. You may also find it easier to find the exact Dermaroller you want online and have it shipped to your house.

Every home Dermaroller kit should come with specific instructions on how to clean and prepare your skin before you treat it. Some kits also include pre-Dermarolling chemical peel instructions. In general, the process is to clean your skin as directed, do the peel if you want to, and then gently roll the Dermaroller over the section of your skin that needs treatment. You may have to be a little extra cautious if you are using the Dermaroller on areas where your skin is thin or extra sensitive, but just apply a level of pressure that you feel comfortable with.

After you’re done with the Dermaroller itself it’s important to treat your skin with a medicated serum or cream. Most Dermaroller kits include the necessary serum or explain what kind of serum you need. But, if you still have questions, you can consult a skincare technician or dermatologist for advice.

Once you know how to perform the treatment on yourself you can do so up to three times in a week, but you shouldn’t do it more than that. Your skin needs time to make its necessary repairs. If you allow it that time to heal between sessions then you should see the best results.

So there you are, lovely readers. If you try a dermaroller please let me know about your experience!
