If you got a new micro needle roller or a dermaroller for Christmas or New Year’s, you may be wondering how to use it. If you got a new micro needle roller, congratulations! You’re on your way to better, firmer, healthier skin in the New Year! Here are some tips for using your new micro needle roller.
What Is A Micro Needle Roller?
When you first get a micro needle roller, you may be confused about what it is used for. Micro needle rollers are a form of acupuncture. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help reduce pain, swelling and inflammation. People noticed during acupuncture sessions that their skin felt firmer and tighter. In the last 20 years, a genius inventor decided to put tiny acupuncture needles on a roller ball for your face and body. Depending on where you use the micro needle roller, the needles may be thicker or thinner. The micro needle roller for your face has tiny, thin needles.
These needles punch tiny holes in your skin when you roll it over your face. Your body thinks your face is damaged, so it rushes collagen and elastin to your face. Collagen and elastin make your face plump up, which erases fine lines, minimizes scarring and makes your face firmer. What a great product.
Tips for Using a Micro Roller
First, before you use a micro needle roller, you will need to thoroughly cleanse your face. You may want to use your exfoliation product as well, so that you are using your dermaroller on fresh, new skin. If you are concerned that you will be sensitive to the needles on the micro roller, you can use numbing gel, or you can use ice on your face before you use the micro roller. Gently roll your micro needle roller over your entire face. You need to cover all of your face twice with the micro needle roller.
Once you have used the micro needle roller on your face, you can follow it up with a serum, depending on your skin care needs. You can use the best hyaluronic acid on your face if you have dry skin, or the best vit c serum if you want to reduce the appearance of dark spots or discolorations. After you apply the serum, you could also use moisturizer once your skin serum is absorbed for even more punch in your skincare routine.
For the best results from your micro needle roller, you shouldn’t use it more than once or twice a week. Your skin needs time to recover. Some people also use a mask the day after you use a micro roller to speed up the healing process for your skin. You also should know that it will take a few weeks before you start to notice the changes in your skin. Once you get used to using it, we know that you will love your new micro needle roller, and you’ll want to include it as part of your skincare routine.
