It is popular for fixing skin problems such as stretch marks and scars. It is suitable for use on all types of skin and is considered a very effective roller. The idea behind this is that the tiny micro needles penetrate (but do not damage) the outer layer of your skin. They open up these pores which the skin then interprets as a form of ‘damage’ and responds by initiating the production of collagen and elastic.
CAPACITY: 1 roller per box
A particular feature of this roller is the fact that it can be used on large areas of the body which is due to the titanium alloy needles fixed in the barrel.
The barrel holds 192 micro needles which are made from titanium alloy which gives them both strength and durability.
This means that they are better at treating large areas of the body, e.g. thighs rather than those which require precision needles.
Precision needles are more effective on those hard to access areas such as the near the nose, eyes and lips and certain parts of the body.
This roller comes with a variety of needle sizes which range from a tiny 0.3 mm to the largest 1.5 mm.
The 0.3 mm needle is used purely to open up the pores of the skin for the application of a skin care product.
The 0.5 mm needle is used to treat signs of ageing: the 1.0 mm needle for stretch marks and cellulite removal.
The 1.5 mm needle works well on thick scars and pitted skin.
This roller is not designed to be used on the face, in particular the lips and eyelids which are fragile and prone to damage.
- The roller is moved across the area of skin to be treated in a series of sequential movements.
- Press firmly but do not overdo this to avoid any unnecessary discomfort.
- To imitate the points of a compass and roll it front, left, right and then backwards. This ensures even coverage without overdoing it.
- There is no pain associated with dermaroller but what you will experience is a tickling sensation as you move the roller over your skin.
