Posts Tagged ‘micro needling’

Needling your delicate skin sounds scary at first, but with a derma roller it’s not a problem at all. It’s actually the best way to stimulate collagen and elastin production as the micro needles stimulate or puncture the skin. The natural healing process which is been activated through the “wounding” does wonders for your skin, revealing smooth and rejuvinated skin with a reduction of lines and wrinkles as well as a tighter feeling.  To me this was the holy grail to get rid of my dull winter skin, so I could glow just in time for Christmas.


What size needle and what brand do I need? 

There are so many brands of derma roller out there with different lenghts of needle. I can assure you that it doesn’t matter which brand you use. I got my 1.0mm roller from amazon for under 10€ and I’m really happy with it.

Nevertheless, the length of needle is very importan. Skin dermatologists say that everything under 0,5mm can’t go deep enough into the epidermis. So if you want your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, you must get at least a 0,5mm roller for your skin.

If you want to get rid of stretch marks, scars and pigmantation issues, a 1,5mm roller is the best. Everything which is higher than 1,5mm is too harsh on your skin, according to dermatologists.

Very important is to always sanitze your derma roller before and after every use so you don’t get any infections. Do you have any experience with derma roller so far? I did it only twice and can see a difference already in my skin. It’s much softer and more radiant than before. Good luck and have a great holiday season!
