Derma Roller UK: What exactly does it do?

Many of you will have heard the term Derma Roller without knowing exactly what it is or what it does. Here is a brief synopsis for those who aren’t sure. Hailed as a revolutionary product in the beauty business the premise of a derma roller uk is to improve the appearance and texture of the skin where it is needed most. Stretch marks, acne scarring, tattoos and surgical scars can all be visibly improved through the use of a dermer roller.

They aren’t the only skin problems that can be helped either. How about cellulite, facial ageing, the pitting left over from chicken pox or hyper pigmentation. All of these can be improved through regular use of a derma roller uk and the best bit about it all is that you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home. This is the answer to your prayers if you are one of the millions who suffer from skin problems on the face and the body.

The roller itself is a small, hand held device that features a drum that contains a multitude of ultra fine, micro needs, and by rolling the drum across the problem areas the needles penetrate the skin and trick the underlying tissue into effectively healing itself by stimulating the multiplication of new cells. This doesn’t claim to be a miracle device, we are far too smart for that old chestnut, but in testing the results have been outstanding and within a few weeks you are promised fresher and more even skin.

There is a trace of initial bruising as the needles are coming into contact with the tissues beneath the skin without breaking the epidermis, and this is how the body is tricked into repairing itself as it thinks there has been a trauma. This kicks in the rejuvenation process that produces more collagen and elastin in the tissue, the two key ingredients in young looking skin that is fresh and supple.

Anyone who wants to improve the appearance and texture of their skin quickly, for a special occasion for example, should seriously think about investing in a dermer roller. Due to the slight bruising and the flushed appearance after use it is highly recommended that those who are looking to improve their appearance for something as important as a wedding should start using the derma roller uk several months in advance to ensure they have achieved their optimum improvement before the big day.

Most women have reported that using the roller brings with it a mild discomfort but this is hard to gauge as everyone has a different pain threshold. There are topical anaesthetic creams available and using this before the roller is said to greatly improve the feeling when in use. When you compare the derma roller uk to many other anti-ageing products there is really no comparison.

Costing less than a tub of high end face cream which will not last very long at all, the derma roller offers great value for money. When the needles start to go blunt you simply replace the roller. An ingenious product with proven results, does it get any better than this?

Now that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, it’s time to amp up your skincare from today to achieve that naturally radiant and glowing complexion for Valentine’s Day as well as London Fashion Week if you’re planning to attend.

Valentine’s Day Skin Care Tips

First off, get detoxing. This may seem like an obvious one but is often ignored by those who get tied up in an everyday hectic lifestyle. Topical application has it’s own influence on the skin but you cannot ignore your bodily functions, toxic waste and acid accumulation that can affect how your skin looks currently. Sipping luke warm water daily with lemon, tomato, capsicum and honey squeezed in will help flush out toxic wasted and excess acids, healing and calming your skin if it’s currently going through a rough patch. Dark green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes and ginger and garlic are also wonderful for getting skin in ace condition.

Spend more time cleansing and exfoliating than applying serums and creams. Of course moisturising and layering skincare is a great way to ensure moisture is sealed into the skin. But if you’re like one of those people who are lazy when it comes to two step deep cleansing and non abrasive liquid exfoliation, then those serums and face creams will simply not penetrate into the skin. It’s like patting all those lotions and potions on a surface of blocked pores and dead skin cells. You need to make sure pores are cleansed inside out, there is no congestion in the skin and the top most layer is of fresh, new skin for it to be able to absorb in creams and serums effectively.

Indulge in a face mask. These skincare gems are under rated. There is no reason not to indulge in a special treatment face mask once or twice a week, regardless of Valentine’s Day. These are potent skincare gems that are jam packed of super effective, concentrated ingredients that work faster than your regular skincare. Whip up a concoction at home, use a sheet mask or simply pick up one from a drugstore shelf, regardless of what formulation you opt for, it’s guaranteed to work. Unlike olden days however, have your options open as there’s more to face masks than just clay formulations. Detect and analyse your skin type and it’s current behaviour and give it nourishment, moisture, cleansing, exfoliation or soothing depending on what it wants.

Get rolling! How? Whatever type of device you use, give your face some facial exercise by indulging in a hand held rolling device. Whether it’s a traditional facial massager with nodular design aimed for lymphatic drainage and flushing out toxins or a more advanced Derma Roller that works at skin resurfacing and renewal – both will give your face that radiant, youthful glow that no skincare product alone will.

A Derma Roller will show visible results in just a few days if you incorporate it in your skincare regime for 10-15 minutes a day, 3 days a week . Opt for shorter needles, around 0.5mm if you have decent skin and are simply looking for skin cell renewal, fewer fine lines and overall improved complexion. It’s a virtually pain free way with not side effects, that in fact accelerates skincare absorption.

Derma Roller: Cleaning & Hygiene

Derma Roller treatment was initially only carried out at salons and by Dermatologists. However overtime, needles with a shorter length were created for people to be able to use the device at home and see visible benefits without spending a tonne on commuting to the salon. Just how at-home laser hair removal systems are condensed version of the ones found at professional salons, similarly at-home derma roller come with needles of 0.5mm and under so you can still experience thorough exfoliation but without the risk of causing skin any damage.

Cleansing and Hygiene is very important when it comes to practising Microneedling at home. Albeit not a highly professional process to perform, it requires immense precision and attention to detail. Also the ability to follow instructions exactly as mentioned

Always thoroughly cleanse derma roller device using rubbing alcohol for 10 minutes before application and 10 minutes after application in a plastic or glass container. Make sure the derma roller head is fully immersed in the cleansing solution to disinfect and avoid bacterial infection. The product will touch the deeper layer of skin on use so you want to make sure you keep it as clean as possible. Most derma rollers will come with their own casing for storage. This will keep it away from any sort of unwanted bacteria, dirt and fluff flying around in the house.

You can also place the head of the derma roller under luke warm water after use to get rid of any skin debris that may be clinged on to it. Make sure the water is not burning hot as it can affect the quality of needles next time you use it.

It goes without saying but do not share a derma roller with any other person and keep  it strictly reserved for personal use. This immediately reduces the chances of any sort of infection.

If you have live skin concerns such as acne, flare ups or sensitivity, then it’s wise to avoid rolling the device on your skin at the period of time as it’s only going to make the skin problem worse. Skin needs to be in a healthy state to go under the ‘trauma’ and slight ‘injury’ that the derma roller will cause to the skin. So do not roll it on any live acne, pimples, white heads, cysts or zits of any sort.

Cleanse your face thoroughly before use and apply a hyaluronic acid serum to turn up the hydration level. Try and stick to organic skincare after using a derma roller and avoid retonoids and any sort of ‘acids’ when it comes to skincare ingredients. After one day, you can go back to normal with skincare.

Lately, the buzz is that the A-Lister has been increasingly turning to Derma roller, the practise of micro-needling to stimulate collagen and elastin reserves in the skin, and is reportedely so enthusiastic about the procedure she’s even gotten Brad on board!

Angie is known for her near perfect porcelain complexion, but, though Dermaroller helps with a variety of known skin conditions, such as acne scarring, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation, you don’t have to have problem skin yourself to benefit from the treatment, as it’s also extremely effective at imparting glow and bringing radiance and smoothness to skin.

During a Dermaroller treatment session, a sterile device with hundreds of tiny ergonomically placed needles attached is rolled back and forth over the treatment area with a light pressure, a near painless experience due to the topical anesthetic that’s applied beforehand.

Immediately after the Derma roller session has been carried out, effective topical serums and creams high in active ingredients such as vitamin C, are applied to the epidermis, as, due to the procedure the absorption rate is up to 80% higher than normal.

After the treatment session has finished, patients report some mild swelling and redness, similar to how your skin feels after a day in the sun, but it’s nothing a crafty application of cosmetics won’t cover and most people find it easy to return to their work or social engagements immediately after treatment.

Obtaining skin as flawless as AJ’s is no easy feat, but after a a course of Dermaroller treatment even problem complexions should start to see a visible improvement, with patients reporting a lessening of their acne scarring and wrinkles and expression lines appearing shallower, after just six Dermaroller sessions.

And along with a good diet and skincare regime that uses smart, effective products with active proven-to-work ingredients such as peptides, retinol, and hyaluronic acid, lasting and dramatic complexion change can be achieved by almost anyone, even if you’re not a Hollywood A-Lister.

Dermaroller is the perfect tool to take you into the New Year with a new skin confidence, so if you make one change this year, make 2014 the year you give yourself the gift of good skin.

How Jennifer Aniston gets her five star flawless complexion

A-Lister Jennifer Aniston is admired for many things; her acting talent, stylish wardrobe, and not to mention that famous mane of hair.  But she’s also top of the class when it comes to her complexion too,  with her glowing and flawless peachy smooth skin, that’s remarkably wrinkle free given her 44 years.

Jen’s latest beauty secret is something you might not have heard of yet, as the procedure she’s purported to be a fan of is not something that’s hugely well known in the UK – yet.

Dermarolling is a skin craze originating from the Far East that has become big beauty news in the US and it looks likely to take over skin care specialist’s treatment rosters over here very soon as well.

jennifer aniston skin

The procedure can be used to treat a whole host of skin complaints and common complexion woes, such as wrinkles, scarring, uneven pigmentation, and loss of tone and radiance, and it can be carried out in the salon or even in the convenience of your own home!

The Dermaroller is a device with hundreds of tiny needles attached that vary in length from around 0.2 mm to 3mm depending on the skin condition and the area of the face or body they are intended to treat.  Scarring for example, requires longer needles, so a length of up to 2.5 mm could be used, while needling the delicate eye area would require a Dermaroller device with needles of no longer than 0.5mm.

As mentioned above, you can have the treatment performed in a salon, or you can buy a device suitable for home use, but do be warned, it’s recommended to only use a needle length of up to 0.5mm at home, and do also make sure your device is fully CE certified before you purchase it.

If you want to emulate Jen and have the treatment performed professionally, you’ll find that more and more clinics and salons across the UK are fast picking up on the benefits  the treatment and a simple google search for “dermaroller london” for example, should reveal plenty of affordable options.

And though it might sound painful to have hundreds of small needles repeatedly pricking at your skin, you can purchase and apply a topical anesthetic cream 30 minutes before needling the treated area and you’ll barely feel a thing. If you’re having your dermaroller treatment in a salon, you won’t need to purchase the numbing agent, as they’ll supply it for you.

Painless, effective, and celebrity endorsed what’s not to love about the big beauty story of 2014 – the Dermaroller?

The procedure works by wounding the skin in order to supercharge healing, and while this may sound painful, discomfort is actually kept to a minimum, due to the topical anesthetic cream that’s applied to the skin’s surface 30 minutes before treatment.

Dermarolling can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions and problems, including scarring, wrinkling, and uneven pigmentation, and can also be used as a collagen stimulation therapy in order to encourage healthy cell turnover.

A typical Derma roller session will last under an hour, and will also include the application of several effective active topicals after treatment, as this is when the absorption of your skin will be at its optimum.

Hygiene  is paramount in this treatment, which you might expect due to the hundreds of tiny needles attached to the Derma roller device, and your cosmetologist will use a brand new sterile Derma roller for every client.
