How to choose your derma roller
always maintain your natural beauty by adopting suitable beauty instruments for your face and body treatments. Among these is the derma roller, a roller that allows you to increase your blood flow and refine your skin. However, its effectiveness in improving your skin, the number of needles it has and its handling are criteria to check before choosing.
Since you need a tool that could meet your expectations, you need to know the performance of the different derma roller models on the market. The level of capacity of the derma roller is very important to control through the diversity of the brands that produce it. In order not to be disappointed after your choice, take the time to test these different models.
Check all their functionality, the operation of the device's wheel and the shape of the needles. It should be noted that the needles should be placed in optimal shape. Because improper needle placement can make the treatment painful and even cause your skin to bleed during use. When this happens, you must stop treatment immediately.
It is also essential to check the size and weight of the derma roller. These measures are not calculable. To determine them, you only have to take into account the number of needles in the device and their different sizes. Opt for a faster and more efficient derma roller, by choosing a model that contains at least 540 needles.
You should still know that the length of the needles is very important to have an effective instrument. In the event that your goals are set only for facials, choose a length of a millimeter at most for needles. On the other hand, when it comes to skincare, such as legs or stomach, opt for a derma roller whose needles exceed one millimeter.
Getting started with derma roller
Here is one of the most compelling criteria for any user of devices of all kinds: its handling. It is good to choose a less bulky derma roller, especially if you are a person who travels too much. You need to check if the chosen model could fit in your drawer or sponge bag.
When the model is easy to store, it is easier to keep it in hand, without having to search your belongings each time to find it. It can also happen that inadvertently, the chosen model slips between your hands, so prevent this error by choosing a very handy instrument. Some derma roller models also have multiple rollers and needles that you can replace. You can also reduce or increase the length of the needles on an easy-to-use model.
The last important point that you must check in order to make a better choice of derma roller is based on the materials of manufacture. You must choose an instrument made of solid and resistant materials such as hard plastic or steel. Your choice must also relate to an ergonomic and very hygienic model.
Buying guide and advice
It can be quite difficult to choose a derma roller model. There are many brands available and it can be quite difficult to choose. To help you, we have decided to offer you this buying guide. When you want to buy a derma roller, it is necessary to focus on the main criteria to determine the ideal product for you:
- Effectiveness on improving your skin
- The number and size of needles
- Utilization facility
- The solidity of the device
Effectiveness of the treatment
If you buy such a product, it is above all because you want it to improve the condition of your skin. You must, therefore, ensure that the derma roller you choose has all the qualities to firm up your skin and make it smoother. For this, you must, in particular, make sure that the roulette turns smoothly and that the shape of the hands is optimal. If it is painful to use or you notice bleeding, stop using it right away. You are indeed dealing with a poor quality product. To know the performance of different products, do not hesitate to consult the different reviews on Amazon.
The number and size of needles
We do not calculate the dimensions of a derma roller with its size and weight, but rather thanks to the number and size of the needles it contains. For quick and efficient use, we advise you to choose a model containing at least 540 needles. However, you also need to consider the length of its needles. This dimension is undoubtedly the most important when you choose such a product. For the face, it should not exceed 1 millimeter and we even advise you to opt for needles with a maximum length of 0.5 millimeters. On the other hand, for the areas where the skin is thicker, in particular, the belly or the thighs, you will have to opt for needles of a length of more than 1 millimeter.
How to maintain a dermaroller
Since it is a tool that will treat your skin, it absolutely must be very hygienic. For this, you need to maintain it perfectly. Before using it, you should disinfect it by soaking it for a few minutes in an alcohol-based solution. Once you have used it, you should clean it using tap water before disinfecting it again. Finally, you should let it air dry before putting it away.
How long should the needles be?
The length of the needles depends above all on the part of the body on which you will use it. For the face, we advise you for example to choose a length of less than 0.5 millimeter and it should especially not exceed 1 millimeter. For areas where the skin is thicker, for example the belly or the thighs, the opposite is the case. Needles less than 1 millimeter in length will not work. Please note that some models, you can change the roller and therefore the length of the needles.
