  • Skin Needle Roller,We’ve all heard how most of the skincare products that we apply on the skin never actually penetrate through to the deep layers of the skin, which results in very little delivery of the product’s active ingredients to dermis. Now, there is a hot new at-home device that solves this problem called the skin roller. The skin roller uses extremely fine needles which penetrate the skin just enough to stimulate elastin and collagen repair. Most skin products are applied only to the surface of the skin and 99% of these products are removed by the environment or wiped off during the day and night. Research has shown that using a skin roller such as the one from MTS Microneedle Skin Roller, Leaf & Rusher Tx Roller, or Dermaroller can increase absorption of serums by as much as 1,000 times and improve the effectiveness of active ingredients like vitamin A and C.

    The skin roller treatment creates thousands of tiny punctures in the skin that open micro-channels that close within just a few hours after the application. This provides just enough time for new collagen structures to form within the skin’s lower layers, but short enough to ensure that you can resume your normal schedule. The result is the build-up of collagen over a period of four to eight weeks, which improves the skin’s appearance.

    A typical skin roller can come with different needle depths, ranging from 0.2 and 0.5 millimeters to more professional-level depths such as 1.0-2.0 mm. When using a needle up to 1.0mm, there is no pain and no need for a numbing cream, although deeper needle rollers may require a numbing cream. The needle treatment may cause redness and swelling for a day, but most people have not reported any real discomfort.

    A good deal of people on Make Me Heal have been raving about the skin rollers and have reported positive results. Check out the reviews on the rollers on the Make Me Heal Forums.

      Do the needles inject the collagen, or do you just apply it after using this device?

      the needles stimulate collagen production, but you should apply your product after the use of the microneedle to enable your product (skinare cream) the ability to absorb better. You can also put nothing afterwards and it should still help your skin, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne.

      I experienced scar tissue formation and facial fat loss after one roller treatment with 3mm on my face. It was performed by a well known plastic surgeon who told me it was the safest procedure out there for acne scars. My skin remained in an inflamed state for months and then the side effects began. Uncomfortable tightness and fat loss. I have been told that I have to now just wait and see if the face will heal itself and return to the way it was. Be very careful and do not use the longer needles. The facial skin is only 1.5mm.
