Do you remember when I reviewed The Derma Roller last year? I received the 1.0mm Derma Roller and after a couple of uses, I thought it was too painful to continuously use. I do use it, but not as often as I thought I would. I was recently asked if I wanted to review the Derma Roller again in a different pin size, and I agreed because I wanted to see if the smaller pin size would hurt less. This review is for the Derma Roller in the 0.5mm size.
The Derma Roller is a handheld device that has tiny medical-grade needles sticking out of it, which when rolled across your skin, has the ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin. It creates microchannels in your skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthier tissue. By renewing skin cells regularly, this helps common problems we experience as we age such as wrinkles, skin hyperpigmentation, scars (including acne scars), uneven skin, stretch marks (usually developed after pregnancy), hair loss or it can simply be used to create smoother skin.
Here is a list of all the different pin sizes and what they’re best used for:
I picked the 0.5mm size to see if it would hurt less than the 1.0mm size, and also to use it for different results. It definitely hurt less, and was easier to use around my nose because the size of it was much smaller. I would definitely use this more frequently than I would with the 1.0mm size. I’m sure I will eventually get used to it and then use the 1.0mm more often, but it’ll take time for sure.
After going over my face with the Derma Roller, I used their Derma Cell Collagen Cream. It’s a moisturizer that will leave your skin softer and smoother. It definitely did that for my skin, but it was very greasy looking and I had to wash my face in the morning to get rid of that oily look.
