Beauty ~ Derma Roller for Skin Renewal

Derma Roller for Skin Renewal

I have to admit that I purchased this Derma Roller after watching a video on YouTube.  I was very impressed with her before and after results.  Although the entire process grossed me out a bit, her results were amazing.  What I don't know and will have to research is the effects on African  American skin. It's no secret that AA skin can not take lasers treatments without major scaring and even though this is roller doesn't involve any lights or lasers, it is sort of a resurfacing treatment where new old skin sheds and new skin grows.

There are two different size rollers, it comes with a 0.5mm roller and you can order the 1.0mm roller at the same time.  I bought this product from Amazon here.

The roller has thousands of needles that prick the skin creating tiny holes that causes the skin to bleed.  The treatment is not painful at all according to the video but the discomfort comes from seeing the blood.  After the treatment is finished, the face is thoroughly washed and moisturized.  The old skin will begin to shed within 24hrs and the new skin will begin to appear.  Not sure how long this all takes (actually I don't remember) but I will definitely re-visit the video and do my research before I try it.
