Dermaroller


What is dermarolling?

"A dermaroller is an instrument that creates micro pathways in the skin for product to better penetrate. A Dermapen, which contained nine acupuncture-sized needles, was used to inject her face with her own blood. It's a method known as microneedling—the idea is to stimulate collagen and elastin fibers to make skin smoother. While the procedure is still done today, less extreme and less painful DIY-friendly variations of the process have since emerged.

When the needle is larger, like 0.5mm, that's when you're getting into "wound healing stimulation," Angelica said, "A dermaroller creates tiny pricks around the skin and gives enough space in between so the wound healing response takes over. You grow new skin." That, in turn, leads to a smoother, more even, and plumper complexion.
