DERMA ROLLER FOR BODY
This product is currently sold out.
A derma-roller is a tool comprised of many tiny needles which, when rolled against your skin, create micro-injuries. This, in turn, sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it heals—leaving your skin tighter and plumper than it was beforehand. And don't worry—it doesn't hurt. But it does resurface the top layer of your skin by encouraging your body's natural healing process.
It's helpful to know exactly what a stretch mark is before considering how derma-rolling might help combat it. To be clear, "a stretch mark is a tear in the collagen fabric of the dermis that occurs whenever the skin is stretched beyond its tensile limits," explains Wells. "This is visible as a lighter-appearing linear wrinkling under the skin. This will happen in the abdominal region during pregnancy or in the hips and leg region with rapid weight gain—this can happen any time but is most common during adolescence due to the hormonal alteration in the skin to accommodate growth."
Microneedling, often referred to as dermarolling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure in which thousands of tiny little needles are inserted into the surface of skin via a rolling or stamping device. Dermarolling works by creating microscopic wounds which induce collagen and elastin production.
