In the pursuit of postponing skin aging, the beauty industry continuously tries to find innovative products and Derma roller definitely stands out in the myriad of facial devices. This handy device promises rejuvenated skin, painlessly and in the comfort of your home. We asked Maya Vu, a master esthetician and founder of Mavian Beauty, for a comprehensive guide and how to use a Derma roller and what are the benefits. You need to get all the information you can, before you go on and put needles in your skin after all. 

What is Derma rolling?

Derma rolling, another name for microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure that includes using hundreds of tiny needles to cause controlled micro-punctures on the skin in order to stimulate the skin’s healing abilities. It is similar to in-office microneedling treatments, but not as invasive. 

‘By creating precise channels through the skin- explains Maya, we trigger the skin to release substances that stimulate new skin cells growth, like collagen and elastin’. These micro ‘injuries’ are superficial and controlled; they heal without leaving scars because the epidermis is not actually damaged. On the contrary, they are used to heal existent scars and increase collagen in the skin. 

What are the benefits of Derma rolling?

Traditionally, microneedling is used as a collagen induction therapy for scars and skin rejuvenation . It can target a wide range of skin concerns, such as:

  1. It helps with post-acne atrophic scars, such as rolling and boxcar scars. 
  2. By boosting collagen production, it helps with fine lines, wrinkles and skin sagging.
  3. Over time, it helps with skin’s elasticity.
  4. Increases active ingredient’s penetration on the skin.
  5. Improves the appearance of pores, stretch marks, skin texture etc.
  6. Some studies show that microneedling, combined with different ingredients, can improve hair loss. 

Overall, every skin concern related to the loss of collagen and elasticity can be improved by consistent use of a derma roller. This procedure is not limited only to the face. It can be used everywhere on the body where you notice scars, marks and skin aging. 

What makes LED Light Therapy Derma Roller stand out?

LED Light Therapy and Derma Roller from Mavian Beauty, is a handy facial device that combines the power of LED Red+Blue light and microneedling. It comes with three heads with different needle sizes:

  • 0.25 mm needles- suitable for beginners. These needles enhance the absorption of skincare products. Since they are very tiny, they don’t stimulate the growth of collagen but thicken the epidermis.
  • 0.5 mm needles -treat fine lines and wrinkles, UV damage, light scarring and hyperpigmentation.
  • 1.0 mm needles- suitable for more experienced users. They boost collagen production, reduce heavy hyperpigmentation and UV damage, and improve stretch marks, scars, wrinkles, skin texture and overall skin complexion. This needle size can be used for the body like legs, back, hands.

The microneedling process can be combined with the LED light of choice. The red LED light activates cell regeneration fibroblasts, stimulates and increases blood circulation, reduces wrinkles and fine lines and tightens skin. The Blue LED Light is perfect for acne-prone skin types as it has antibacterial properties, treats and prevents future breakouts.

How to get the most out of LED Light Therapy and Derma Roller?

Maya Vu, the founder of Mavian Beauty and a master esthetician, suggests achieving quicker and better results by combining the LED Light Therapy and Derma Roller with the Mavian Beautify Serums. 

Pairing the Vitamin C’ Beautify Serum with this facial device effectively targets hyperpigmentation, thanks to the combination of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Ferulic acid. The Mavian Vitamin C serum lightens hyperpigmentation and protects the skin from free radical damage and the LED Derma Roller further enhances the serum’s properties, enabling the treatment of deep hyperpigmentation such as sun spots and freckles. 

For those focusing on addressing aging skin concerns , Maya recommends pairing the LED Light Therapy and Derma Roller with the Mavian Beauty Hydration Boost serum. In addition to the effects of this facial device, such as increasing collagen production through the tiny needles and red LED light, the hyaluronic acid in this serum, will give your skin a hydration boost and almost immediately improve fine lines.

Dehydrated skin, often marked by dry patches and fine lines, can make your face appear more aged. The Hydration Boost serum, featuring pure water-soluble hyaluronic acid, consistently draws and locks in hydration at the skin’s surface. The Derma Roller will help the skin to absorb this serum better and faster, resulting in an immediate plumpness of the skin and less visible fine lines and wrinkles.
