Why You Should Be Using A Dermal Roller

Brown spots, visible capillaries, dullness and dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and to some extent, oiliness are all skin issues that are caused by what is known as extrinsic ageing.  A result of a lifetime of sun exposure along with (give or take) smoking, alcohol, questionable diet choices and stress.

  Then there is intrinsic ageing or genetics… and while you can’t do much to change the effects genetics have on our skin; the good news is there's a lot you can do to fight extrinsic ageing. 

  I’ve been in the beauty industry for a long time.  I’m a second-generation Beauty Therapist so some would say I was born into the industry… straight from the delivery room to the salon (lol).  The point is, I know this industry like the back of my hand and I’ve seen many things come and go.  Beauty trends, beauty fads, treatments that work and treatments that don’t…. I’ve probably tried most of them too!  

  Of course, I have a handful of favourites. One of my all-time favourites is dermal rolling!

  If you have pigmentation, scarring or just want to plump and rejuvenate your skin then I want you to follow me on a journey.  I can’t explain everything you need to know in just one blog; the skin is way too amazing and complex for that.  Instead, I’m going to break this down into several parts so you can pick and choose which parts relate to your concern… maybe it’s just one (like smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles) or maybe like me, you have a few issues that need addressing… fine-lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.  Whatever the case, what you are going to learn about the skin will - blow - your - mind!  The best part is… you only need one tool to do the trick and you can do it from home!  

  Like a magic wand for skin, the ASI Dermal Skin Roller will help you in restoring and maintaining your skin’s health and vitality by encouraging cellular turnover (that’s tech talk for - ‘growing baby smooth skin’),  increasing collagen production and reversing imperfections such as pigmentation and acne by hitting the reset button in your skin!

  Let’s take a quick tour of the ASI Dermal Skin Roller and how it works:

  This easy to use hand-held device is topped with a mini cylinder covered in hundreds of tiny, surgical steel needles. When rolled over the skin the needles create thousands of microscopic channels down into the deeper layers of the skin.  Sounds painful?  Not really, just a little prickly but trust me, this little bit of discomfort is worth the results!

  You see, each one of those tiny pinpricks is not only a channel but also a microscopic fractionalised wound.  Fractionalised meaning that only a very minute area of the skin is wounded and the skin surrounding each channel is left intact and unaffected. Kind of like a pixelated image.   This is important for quick and effective healing with no visible downtime… so you can roll away several times a week without anyone knowing how you keep yourself looking so young!

  Now, the amazing part is this… those tiny pinprick/channels/wounds have a duel effect.  Yep, who doesn’t love 2 for the price of 1!  Firstly, the channels themselves become the perfect slip-lane for your favourite skin actives to penetrate deeper into the skin where they are needed most.  Your Vitamin C, Vitamin A, B3 and Hydration Serums can all now bypass the layers of dead skin sitting on the surface and arrive at their destination more effectively.

  Secondly, by causing these fractionalised wounds, we are triggering the skin’s wound healing response causing various growth factors to be released and neocollagenesis to begin  (that’s the fancy term for ‘growing collagen’).

  Of course, as I mentioned earlier the skin’s amazing complexity means that there is way to much information to give it all to you in one hit but if you are eager to start using the ASI Dermal Skin Roller at home I would recommend you book in for a 20min skin consultation with one of the Brazilian Beauty Online Skin Experts.  They will not only talk to you about your individual skin needs but also show you how to safely and effectively use your Dermal Skin Roller at home.  Even more exciting, your personalised consultation comes free when you order the Dermal Rolling Kit.  The kit has everything you need to get started, including the popular Dermal Facelift Mask and your .75mm Dermal Roller Device which can then be kept and reused for up to 12 months. 

  In the meantime, keep an eye out for the next instalment of this Dermal Rolling series in which I cover in-depth information on how Skin Needling helps to combat Acne and skin breakouts.
