Looking Younger and Improving Acne Scars Using the Derma Micro Needle Roller
Discovering the Derma Roller
I was looking for skin care products on Amazon when I stumbled upon the Derma Roller. I had never seen one before and was very curious about how it worked. Soon I was reading all of the customer reviews, checking out the different manufacturers, and comparing the rollers to one another.
It wasn't long before I decided I would have to try it out. I am beginning to get those lines around my mouth and in between my brows. While I will probably never want to pay large sums of money to have these improved upon, I am all for DIY, inexpensive and safe methods of keeping my face looking younger. Who wouldn't be?
1.0mm Micro Needle Roller Skin Care Therapy Dermatology System
After looking at all of the choices, I chose the 1.0mm Micro Needle Roller Skin Care Therapy Dermatology System. The reasons I chose this product are listed below, however, depending upon your age, tolerance, and your specific needs, a different roller may be more suitable. I have included several other roller options at the end of this article.
Reasons I chose this roller:
- I liked that the size of the needle was 1mm. My skin is very tolerant to most skincare products, so I felt the larger needle would give me the results I was looking for.
- The price of this roller was under $15 with FREE shipping. I always like that!
- The reviews were very good and there were over 400 of them, which gave me a good idea of the product's effectiveness by the people who had used it.
- Customer reviews included lots of tips and instructions, so I knew all about the product and how to use it correctly and safely before I even ordered it.

Aggressive Derma Rolling
The video below shows a doctor using a derma roller on a patient. The patient begins with an anesthetic facial cream that numbs the skin. The doctor then rolls the derma roller aggressively back and forth all over the patient's face, leaving raw-looking skin. He then cleans the patients face and applies a cream to soothe the skin. I do not use the roller as aggressively as this doctor does, but I use the roller once a week for about a month to see very noticeable results.
