Everything you need to know about Microneedling

Jul 22, 2022Suzanne Smedley

We all know how important collagen is for achieving a more youthful complexion. But did you know there is an easy and natural way to boost the collagen in your skin? Using  a microneedling facial roller is a safe and easy way to achieve this boost from the comfort of your own home. If you haven’t heard of this type of roller before, it consists of a hand held device you can roll on your skin. It features tiny (but powerful) micro needles to induce controlled injuries. This then causes the skin to start healing rapidly by removing cells and fibres that are damaged and replacing them with healthy and new cells. Therefore leaving you with a more firm and youthful complexion. 

What are the benefits of the Microneedle Face roller?

Along with naturally boosting collagen and elastin, using a microneedling roller improves the absorption of successive skincare products applied to the skin. This allows the ingredients to be more intentional and potent in their delivery.  A variety of amazing benefits that can come with using a microneedle face roller include: 

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  •  A boost of collagen allows for an improvement in your skin’s elasticity, resulting in a smoother and more supple complexion.

  • Reducing the appearance of sun damage
  • Using a microneedling roller can assist with the appearance of sunspots and hyperpigmentation by accelerating cell renewal to make way for healthier, less damaged skin to come through.

  • Reducing dullness 
  •  Give your skin the glow it deserves from improved collagen & elastin production, providing suppleness and vitality from those newly generated cells.

  • Improving the appearance of the skin's texture 
  •  Our Microneedle roller can help refine the skins texture by gently encouraging self exfoliation within the skin via cell renewal. This can minimize the appearance of superficial scars and pigmentation.

    How often should I use the Microneedling Facial Roller ? 

    Aim to use our Microneedle roller 1-2 days a week at most. It is recommended to replace the roller every 3 months with frequent use (which we are sure you’ll want to after you get addicted to the amazing benefits you’ll be noticing).

    Is the microneedling face roller safe and pain free? 

    Your experience with microneedle rolling at home should be easy and painless! Our Microneedling Facial Roller is of the highest quality and is certified for health and safety. Using 0.3mm fine medical grade titanium needles, this is enough to induce tiny micro-injuries to the skin to boost collagen & elastin & improve skincare absorption, without penetrating too deep within the skin. Your roller will come with detailed instructions and in sterile packaging, so you can feel confident in improving your skin’s overall health safely at home. If you do find you are experiencing pain, try adjusting the pressure of your application and/or use less passes at a time on each area of your skin.

    When will I start seeing results from using my microneedling roller? 

     Good things come to those who wait! Long term results take patience, consistency and time.. With regular use, and in combination with upkeep of your skincare ritual, you should start to notice glowing results within the first few weeks. Even after the first use your skin can feel much softer and smoother.

    What are the steps involved with using a microneedle face roller? 

    When it comes to using a derma roller for your face there are a few key steps involved. 

    Step 1. 

    Firstly, It is important that you do not have anything on your skin so we recommend you thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin before your start.   

    Step 2. 

    It’s time to begin rolling. 

    When it comes to using the roller, the technique in which you use the microneedling roller is extremely important. Ensure you roll horizontally, vertically and diagonally over the face twice to create micro channels in the top layer of the skin. 

    Some key things to remember when using your microneedle face roller: 

    1. Avoid going too close to your lash line but very gentle pressure around the eye is beneficial for common fine lines that can appear.
    2. Be gentle! - Remember not to apply too much pressure to your skin when rolling, however it is completely normal to experience slight redness of the skin. 
    3. Top Tip - It helps to divide your face into sections so you can easily remember where you have rolled. 

    Step 3. 

    Apply your favourite serum or cream. We recommend you use Bare Roots Herbal Mist, Curative Serum and Vital Cream alongside the roller, as it will enhance their absorption into the skin and support your rejuvenation. 

    Step 4. 

    Lastly, one of the most important steps includes sterilising your roller head. 

    You can do this with an Isopropyl alcohol spray and leave it to air dry or alternatively gentle wash it with warm soapy water.
