Why Micro Needle Derma Rolling Should Be a Can’t-Miss Part of Your Skincare Routine


Ladies - we are living in the golden age of skincare, with amazingly effective actives, tons of cutting-edge tech, and lots of opportunities to take our skincare routines to the next level.

Maybe you’re a novice (and the idea of adding anything electronic or metal to your routine scares you) or maybe you’re a total pro. In either case, there are just some innovations that you shouldn’t miss out on. One of those is a microneedle derma roller.

Here’s why.

What is a Micro Needle Derma Roller?

As the name suggests, a microneedle derma roller is a small, handheld device - not unlike a rolling pin used for cooking - that has teeny tiny needles all over it (though they’re significantly larger when you get the treatment done by a dermatologist - usually 2 millimeters, while an at-home tool is around 0.2 millimeters).

The idea is that you roll it all over your face, creating tiny holes on the surface of your skin. These holes trigger a repair response in the skin during which cells come in to essentially repair the injuries you’ve just inflicted.

The Benefits of At-Home Microneedling

Ultimately, this repair response has been shown to help:

  • Minimize pore appearance
  • Boost collagen
  • Increase product absorption
  • Strengthen the skin’s natural barrier
  • Tackle fine lines and wrinkles
  • Leave skin plumper and softer
  • Fade hyperpigmentation
  • Increase skin elasticity

But there are a few things to keep in mind here. Remember, you are dealing with needles that are going into your skin - even if it’s superficial - so you’ll want to do your due diligence and make sure that the derma roller you choose is well-made with stainless steel or titanium.

So how do you get it right? Here are the basic steps to follow:

  1. Start by cleansing your derma roller with a disinfectant like alcohol
  2. Cleanse skin
  3. Using mild pressure, roll derma roller around your 5-10 times. You will want to move the roller horizontally andvertically to maximize results.
  4. Apply your serum of choice. We recommend something with ultra-effective active ingredients:
    • Pep Rally:With hyaluronic acid, green tea, vitamin E and vitamin C, Pep Rallyserum will brighten skin, hydrate, and protect against free radical damage.
    • Seeking C:If you’re looking for more potent vitamin C environmental protection and brightening, we recommend this concentrated vitamin C serum(you can even purchase Seeking C withyour derma roller here).
  5. Repeat three times a week for optimal results
