Thermage, acid peels and laser treatments are well-known skin changers and cost a fortune. Micro-needling is another option but again when done in a clinic the fees add up. Micro-needling is a natural way to rebuild the collagen our skin needs and now you can do it at home and for well under $100 total!
I have the Derma Roller System in a size 1.0. I have scars from a bad chicken pox outbreak as a child and acne scars to boot. I still suffer mildly form acne in my forties and am starting to see those fine lines especially around my eyes. Creams help a little, but I need a treatment and without ‘treatment’ prices. Now I have it and it is simply amazing!
To start, micro-needling is not new! It’s just perfected for in-home use. You first need to find the right roller size because too much can be damaging so make sure you use the smallest fit. For me that was a 1.0mm and as new derma roller user 1.0mm is about maximum to start with.
The most important tip before rolling is disinfecting and rolling the RIGHT way! Once you have this down you can safely get naturally healthy skin again.
First wash and disinfect
Wash and dry your face. While doing that, have your Derma Roller System soaking in 70 percent isopropyl alcohol. Now you are safe to micro-needle.
Roll the RIGHT way!
Here is how to roll according to the Derma Roller System Blog article
1. Roll the derma roller in the same direction 6 to 8 times, lifting the roller after each pass.
2. Turn it slightly, then repeat the process. Keep doing this until you have covered the area being treated.
3. After you have finished this, go back to where you initially started rolling, and roll the roller in the opposite direction. Repeat this 6-8 times, just like before, lifting the roller after each pass.
4. By the end of this process, you should have rolled the roller between 12-16 times total on each area, 6-8 times horizontally, and 6 to 8 times vertically. It is important that you do not roll the derma roller sideways or diagonally. This puts an uneven amount of pressure on the center of the face. If you wish to apply it diagonally, then proceed with caution.
Now wash your face WITH WATER ONLY! Once clean, you may now add a moisturizer or skin cream for day or night. Again, we stress disinfect so water only at first is your safest way to end derma rolling!
