Derma needle roller

The use of a derma needle roller has become much more popular in recent years, likely due to more people being concerned with their skin health and beauty, as well as the rise in social media influencers and YouTubers who focus on beauty and skin care. The showcasing of these products, as well as their promotion through these factors has meant that more and more people are educated as to what a derma needle roller does, and how they can purchase and use one at home. There are many benefits that come with the use of a derma needle roller, and these are applicable to many people, if not all of them. However, with the benefits come some slight risks that everyone should know about and do their research about before considering purchasing a derma needle roller for their home use.

Here are some of the benefits and risks of using a derma needle roller at home.


It is affordable

Regular derma needle roller treatments by professionals can often cost around $200 – $800 per treatment, and while they may be skilled and professional at what they do, this is not something that is regularly affordable for the average person. Moreover, it usually requires multiple derma needle roller treatments to see results, so this could end up costing you a fortune in order to start seeing results. By buying your own product, you are definitely saving money as the initial investment cost of one will be much more cost-effective than seeing a professional every few weeks. It is recommended to replace your product every 10 uses, however this is still cheaper than going to a professional salon every treatment. Therefore, it is affordable to use a product yourself rather than going into a professional place every treatment.


Benefits and results for the skin

A derma needle roller has many benefits for the skin, as it causes micro-injuries in the face which helps to increase collagen and elastin production.

This helps to reduce the ageing lines and wrinkles that develop over time as a result of these proteins being produced less. This increase in collagen and elastin also helps to rejuvenate the skin and make one look younger and healthier. Furthermore, it can help to reduce acne scars, as a derma needle roller can penetrate the skin quite deeply, and acne scars are often found at the roots of the skin. Moreover, it can help to reduce bags under the eyes, which is a big problem for a lot of the population. As a beauty product, it can be used over the lips to create that ‘Kylie Jenner lips’ look.


It has risks of infections and potential skin damage

By using a derma needle roller, you are opening up the skin and pores significantly, as well as using metal to do so. You must ensure to disinfect the product before and after every use in order to avoid infection, which can end up damaging the skin and making a serious mess, potentially causing health problems. Because you do not have the training to use this product like a professional would, you might use a technique which is poor and can end up causing skin damage instead. It is important to learn techniques which are proper and work best for your skin.


In summary, a derma needle roller can be used for a variety of benefits which are beneficial to the majority of the population. However,  there are some risks that come with using the product, as it is usually something done by a professional in a proper salon.
