How Use a Derma Roller at Home – Skincare Safety 101

The skin is the body’s largest organ and serves as a protective shield against heat, light, injury, and infection. So how do formulations bypass that skin barrier so that key actives can get to work? There are various transport vectors and mechanisms we use in our products. However, one of the most effective ways to overcome the skins barrier protective barrier is to use a home care derma roller. 

 

How does derma rolling work?

Derma rolling involves the use of microscopic needles which makes microscopic punctures in the skin to enhance the delivery of skin products and helping key ingredients sink into the skin.

A derma Roller is not designed to cause bleeding and should definitely not cause any pain or discomfort. You should only ever use a safe needle depth at home, 0.25mm, and this is the depth of the Aesthetics Rx derma roller. Any lengths beyond that must be left to the professionals in a clinical environment since there are risks involved with those deeper levels, like hyperpigmentation.

 

What are the skincare benefits of using a derma roller?

Derma rolling provides a means of getting products through the skin barrier. It achieves this by aiding passage and allowing the active ingredients to absorb and reach their targeted areas! Thus, it enhances the overall efficacy of serums and moisturisers by up to 90%. You’ll notice an improvement to skin issues like dullness, post acne scarring, pigmentation, open pores and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. That’s because your skincare products are working harder for you, and where they are needed.

 

How to Use A Derma Roller

  1. Rinse your derma roller under warm water, leave to dry,  then spray all over with our 70% Isopropyl Sanitising Spray. Leave to dry to let the antiseptic action get to work and alcohol evaporate off the needles. In the meantime, thoroughly cleanse your face using Aesthetics Rx Revitalising Foaming Cleanser before using your derma roller.
  2. Apply the roller gently over the area to be treated. Using a cross-hatch shaped pattern (vertical than horizontal), roll each area approximately 5 times, and lift the roller between passes to avoid moving the same places too much. A simple method is to divide your face into 6 areas left and right forehead, left and right nose/eye/cheek/temple and left and right lower cheek/mouth/chin areas.
  3. Apply your serum and/or cream after rolling over your whole face.
  4. Rinse your derma roller and use Ispopropyl Sanitising Spray before replacing your derma roller in the protective case supplied. That way it’s ready for use straight away next time you roll.

For anyone who has ever endured a breakout before a big event or presentation, the mind-complexion connection seems obvious. But increasingly, research reveals that the link between skin and stress is perhaps stronger than we realise.

When we experience mental or emotional duress *such as a global pandemic*, it unleashes a toxic cocktail of stress hormones which can cause dryness, breakouts and sensitivity to the skin barrier.

A common misconception with oily skin is that moisturiser isn't necessary and will make the skin even greasier. However, by not applying enough moisturiser, you're causing the skin to overcompensate and produce more oil.

If you have combination or oily skin - these are your SKINCARE STAPLES:

Revitalising Foaming Cleanser:
✨Clears up blemishes without over-drying, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.

Ultimate Serum:
✨Exfoliates dead skin cells and increases cell renewal, while a high concentration of Niacinamide brightens and increases moisture levels in the epidermis
-

Daily Moisturiser Combination:
✨Panthenol (Vit B5) Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin and
is thus improves skin moisturisation
✨Witch Hazel Extract acts as an astringent, drying out acne blemishes
✨Enantia Chlorantha Bark extracts reduce sebum (oil) secretion

Hey, RETINOL NEWBIE 👋🏼

Follow our top tips for incorporating retinal into your regime ✨

START LOW, GO SLOW
Start on a low strength of Retinol - A Serum Retinol Restorative is perfect for those new to vitamin A. Always introduce the ingredient to your skin slowly so as not to overwhelm it. Once your skin has accepted the molecule without experiencing any sensitivity you can then move up to a higher strength to maximise your results, such as our A Serum 1% Retinol.
-

PHASE-IN
It's important to phase in any retinoid gradually over the course of 4 weeks to allow the skin to get used to the molecule. For A Serum 1% Retinol we recommend using twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks and then every night after that.

-
MOISTURISE
Always apply a ceramide-rich moisturiser after your vitamin A as it will help to offset any dryness that may occur as your skin adjusts to your chosen retinoid. Anti-Ageing Regeneration Formula is perfect for use with vitamin A serums, as it has been designed to enhance retinoid results.

-
SUNSCREEN
Don't forget to apply sunscreen the morning after. This is important as the vitamin A molecules are typically photosensitive, meaning they will break down and be ineffective if exposed to sunlight and increase your skin’s sensitivity to harmful UV rays.
