What is Derma Rolling?

Before we explain what derma rolling is, we need to explain what a derma roller actually is. A derma roller is a handheld roller-device covered in microneedles – needles ranging in length from 0.25 mm to 1.5m – which is rolled over the skin. This is done in order to create tiny skin punctures on the skin which triggers skin repair, leading to the creation of new collagen. A bodily protein made up of amino-acids, collagen is the part of the connective tissue that helps in firmness, strength, suppleness, and elasticity in skin.

Dermaroller in Use Therefore, the short-term wounding of the skin is intended to trigger the production of a protein that will actually in turn strengthen the skin to a healthier level than before. Think of derma rolling as you would think of weight training and working out – you create small tears in your muscles so that the muscle is repaired and made stronger than before. Not a perfect parable or comparison, but you get the idea.

Now, derma rolling benefits aren't just gained in the needling and resulting repair of the skin. Derma rolling is capable of exposing deeper layers of your skin to the benefits of various topical ointments, natural oils, treatments, and products, leading to greater effectiveness and therapeutic effect. In other words, after derma rolling, your skin will be more susceptible to the effects of anything that comes into contact with it, based on the increased exposure to the vital most layers of the skin. Therefore, any and all skin treatments or supplements (such as avocado oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, or jojoba oil) could be enhanced in effectiveness if applied after derma rolling.

However, this is a bit of a two-way street; after derma rolling, skin is generally at least mildly irritated, and just as vulnerable in terms of exposure to skin-harming elements and products. Therefore, it's important to never (ever!) try a new skin product after derma rolling. The reality is, we never know exactly how our skin might react to a new product or ingredient, and if the reaction is a negative one, this will only be exacerbated by the skin being freshly needled and exposed.

Dermaroller It's also important to note that, in this same vein, you should remember not to panic to initial skin irritation and redness following derma rolling! Sadly, this sort of a skin-reaction is to be expected in many cases – the skin, having been freshly 'wounded', needs to get worse before it gets better. The shorter the needle length, the lesser the irritation is likely to be, and results will generally vary depending on the person. Your skin is also likely to have increasingly diminished reactions to derma rolling, so keep at it and your redness and irritation is sure to wear down faster. Lastly, patience is a virtue across the board when derma rolling: you should only start to see improved skin after five or more 'sessions'. Don't give up if your skin isn't looking as healthy as can be after just one 'session'! It takes time for collagen to work its magic, and your patience will certainly be rewarded!

What Are the Benefits of Using a Dermaroller?

Clear, Healthy Skin Although we have detailed the benefits of derma rolling to some extent above, the truth is that their benefits are plentiful and couldn't be contained within a how-to paragraph. Whether you are someone who suffers from acne, dry skin, weak skin, scarring, aged-looking skin, and more – it's hard to imagine a skin ailment that cannot be remedied or at the least improved via derma rolling.

With that being said, derma rolling should never be performed on any kind of open wound or skin blemish. It would be counterproductive to say the least to puncture or further inflame existing wounds – allow irritated areas of the skin before using your dermaroller.
Our top-5 benefits of derma rolling outside of the inherently obvious are as follows:

  • Premature Aging
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Pore Size

Dermaroller for Acne Scars

One of the worst and most lingering effects of acne is not the skin blemishes and pimples themselves, but the lasting scarring that they leave. When acne hits, the skin has an inflammation response to the damage, after which the body will try to repair the damage, producing more collagen which, combined with the inflammatory response, can create scarring.

Picking the blemishes increases the inflammatory response of the skin, so it is important to remember never to needlessly inflame the skin on your own. Once the scarring has already set in, however, derma rolling can help to undo it. The prickling of the skin by the derma roller will cause the skin to repair and replace itself which, if done over a long enough period of time, can eventually wear down and eliminate scars.

Dermaroller Before and After Review

I personally tried derma rolling for a period of three months, and let me tell you, I won't be phasing it out of my beauty regimen any time soon. I've suffered from a myriad of skin ailments in my time – stretch marks, discoloration, acne, acne scarring, and more – and my skin has not looked this good since before my teenage years brought on the dreaded acne damage.

I've tried every miracle skin cure in the book in order to heal my skin-related woes, and none did as much for me over the course of years as derma rolling has done for me in this relatively short period of time. Although I must day, skin mists did work great! Recommended to me by my doctor, I was initially interested in derma rolling when I learned what it could do for my acne scarring, but that was before I realized that it could remedy a number of other skin problems I was suffering from as well.

While derma rolling did not fully eliminate my acne scarring over the course of the three months (I performed bi-weekly treatments with a 0.75 mm needle roller), it did wear the scarring down tangibly, and there is promise for greater results to be achieved with a continued steady schedule of treatments. The stretch marks on my thighs are the most faded they have been since before my pregnancy, my mild skin discoloration is less noticeable than ever, and my skin has a more youthful complexion and look. I can't wait to see what another three months of derma rolling will do for me – find out what it can do for you by trying derma rolling today!


It's important, as always, to note that one skin treatment should not make up all of your skin treatment. Derma rolling can work wonders for your ailing skin but you should not become overly reliant on it or any one skin treatment in particular. Using a proper facial cleanser or incorporating a series of essential oils into your routine, for example, can go a long way towards boosting the health and appearance of skin and are always highly recommended.

Another important point to make is that derma rolling is not an noninvasive practice.
Opening your skin in any capacity can present certain risks – it is absolutely vital that you consult a skin care specialist or physician before derma rolling. Be sure not to use your derma roller over an area of your skin that is particularly sensitive or irritated as this may serve to exacerbate the irritation. Apply soothing ointments and oils to the skin in order to heal the area before derma rolling. This is a good rule of thumb to follow in general: listen to your skin. Don't take unnecessary risks for the sake of beginning your derma rolling routine. Better safe than sorry!
