Derma rollers are special devices designed for mesotherapy, a cosmetic procedure that improves the condition of the skin. The tools differ in the number and length of needles, the material from which they are made, and their width. The use of the accessory helps improve the skin's structure, making it more elastic and supple. Its use helps increase blood circulation, positively affecting metabolic processes, effectively removing wrinkles and evening out the complexion, getting rid of pigment spots.
How to choose derma rollers
Here are some basic tips on how to choose a qualitative tool:
Availability of a certificate. Make sure that the accessory has the appropriate certificate and warranty.
Size. Wide derma rollers are designed for use on all the body. Medium width is suitable for facial procedures, and the smallest one can remove bags under the eyes.
Needle length. For home use, it is recommended to choose a device with a needle length of 0.2-0.5 mm. Tools with longer ones are intended for use in medical and cosmetic institutions.
Material. You can buy accessories with steel needles at a low price. More expensive ones are coated with gold or silver. The advantage of the latter derma rollers is durability.
Additional features. For example, you may want to purchase an accessory with a removable barrel that can be changed when needed.
Study all these features beforehand to choose a product you need.
How to use this tool
Here is a guide on using derma rollers.
Disinfect the needles before the procedure. To do this, use any antiseptic. You can place the device completely in liquid or spray it from a pulverizer. Allow the liquid to dry completely.
The facial skin also needs to be cleansed. Remove makeup and wipe your face with a tonic.
Apply a serum or cream on the skin. The composition must be selected individually depending on the problem you intend to solve.
Movements. First, the whole face is worked horizontally, left to right and back. Then move on to vertical movements, from top to bottom and back. It is better to do alternately – horizontal, vertical, diagonal at the end. The whole face is massaged for 5-10 minutes.
Problem areas such as nasolabial folds can be worked on with derma rollers for an additional 5 minutes.
After the procedure, a gel or serum is not washed off. Apply a soothing cream directly on it.
When you are done, the tool should be disinfected again with antiseptic, allowed to dry and removed until the next procedure.
The number of procedures in home conditions is usually 5-7. The interval between procedures is a week. Do not use the device more often since it is necessary to give skin a rest, and wounds need time to be tightened.
