Everyone wants a smooth, beautiful complexion and are willing to try a variety of things to keep their skin youthful. People try surgery, fractal laser resurfacing, botox, chemical peals, skin care products and other methods to improve the textures and appearance of their skin.
Recently, derma rollers have been getting a lot of attention in the media.
How Do Micro-Needle Rollers Work?
Designed to enhance the absorption of skin care ingredients, micro-needle rollers actually stimulates collagen and elastin on its own. Since their release unexpected uses for micro-needle rollers have been discovered.
Micro-Needle Rollers are fitted with a rotating head which is lined with tiny acupuncture-type needle. These delicate needles gently and painlessly pierce the skin everywhere the roller is rolled. The roller is moved up and down, back and forth and diagonally in 4 directions over the face, creating a series of tiny channels in the skin.
This creation of these micro-channels does two important things. One, it allows appropriate medicated treatments to be absorbed past the skin’s protective barrier where the serums can be most efficacious. Two, the tiny punctures actually signal the body that is has been wounded. The body rushes collagen and elastin to the area to repair the skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and healthier skin as collagen levels are boosted.
What Fashion Magazines are saying about Micro-Needle Rollers
InStyle: “The tool ran over every contour of our face painlessly (granted, we didn’t push hard). When we applied the serum from one capsule, it was absorbed in seconds, leaving our skin smooth and not at all sticky.”
Marie Claire: “I’m obsessed with this skin roller… $200 (with Anti-Age kit): Its superfine acupuncture needles gently prick skin so that topical treatments absorb instantaneously.”
Allure Magazine: “This is low-tech, but much like with laser therapy, you’re causing a form of controlled injury to the skin.” Allure goes on to point out that as the skin heals, new collagen is formed where the micro-needle created the tiny micro-channels.

Author on Micro-Needle Rollers
I have personally used a Micro-Needle Roller and found it to be easy, painless and effective to use. I have used the roller on my lips and found the roller did make my lips a little fuller and rosier on its own. The results with a good lip serum are even more dramatic.
Bear in mind the incredible result are from using BOTH a roller and Lip Serum and my experiment was using the roller alone for 5 days, but if you look closely, you will see fewer small lines around me mouth and more fullness and definition, especially near the corners.
