Dermarolling: Your Guide to the Best At-home Devices and How to Use Them

Rejuvenated, healthy, and glowing skin is a desire shared by many, and the beauty industry is constantly evolving with innovative skincare solutions. One such advancement gaining popularity is the at-home derma roller device.

Derma rollers, also known as micro-needling devices, have revolutionised skincare routines, offering a convenient and effective way to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin from the comfort of your own home.

As a Skin Therapist myself, I personally think dermal rollers have been underrated and are an investment to your skincare regimen that can truly amplify your skin results.

What is a Dermal Roller?

A dermal roller is a handheld skincare tool equipped with tiny needles that create controlled micro-injuries when rolled over the skin's surface.

These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more radiant.

Dermal rollers are available in various needle lengths, with shorter needles used for superficial rejuvenation and longer needles for more intensive treatments.

Benefits of Dermal Rollers at home

  1. Anti-Ageing: By boosting collagen and elastin production, dermal rollers can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, resulting in a more youthful complexion.

  2. Acne Scar Reduction: Dermal rollers can aid in the improvement of acne scars, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

  3. Hyperpigmentation Treatment: Uneven skin tone and dark spots can be addressed with regular dermal roller usage, as it encourages the turnover of skin cells.

  4. Enhanced Skincare Product Absorption: The micro-injuries created by the dermal roller allow skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin, maximising their effectiveness.

How to use a dermal roller at home

  1. Preparation: Start with a cleansed, dry face. Wash your hands thoroughly and sterilise the dermal roller with alcohol before use.

  2. Rolling Technique: Divide your face into sections and roll the dermal roller gently in a vertical, horizontal, and diagonal pattern within each section. Avoid excessive pressure to prevent skin damage. Roll in one direction, lifting the roller at the end of each stroke to avoid back-and-forth movements.

  3. Post-Treatment Care: After rolling, apply your prescribed serums or a mask. Avoid makeup and direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours. Cleanse the dermal roller thoroughly after each use and store it in a clean, dry place.

Tips for safe, effective derma rolling

  1. Consistency is key: For optimal results, incorporate dermal rolling into your skincare routine consistently. Start with once a week and gradually increase to 2-3 times per week, based on your skin's tolerance.

  2. Don't share your device: Dermal rollers are for individual use only. Sharing may lead to cross-contamination and skin infections.

  3. Be gentle on sensitive areas: Avoid rolling over active acne, irritated skin, or areas with eczema or psoriasis.

  4. Replace your dermal roller regularly: The needles can become dull over time, affecting their efficacy. Replace your dermal roller after 10-15 uses depending on which brand you have chosen.

At-home dermal rollers offer an accessible and effective solution for achieving glowing, youthful skin, and rejuvenated skin to enhance your already professional skin treatments.

By following the proper techniques and incorporating dermal rolling into your skincare routine, you can unlock the full potential of this innovative device.

Remember to prioritise safety, consistency, and patience, as the results will undoubtedly be worth the effort!
