Derma rolling is a simple and effective way of encouraging healthy new skin tissue to form, improving the skin’s natural production of collagen (important for keeping your face looking young) and reducing the appearance of marks such as wrinkles and acne scars. It's done by rolling rows of fine needles over your face, puncturing the skin slightly to address common complaints such as scarring and aging.

While it's possible to go to the salon for derma rolling treatments, it's also something that you can do yourself at home, with needles of up to 1.5mm.

This will go deep enough to reduce wrinkles, break down scar tissue and fade patches of discoloration or damage from the sun. If you simply want to even out your skin tone then you might want to take a gentler approach with an even smaller needle size.

Because they open up your pores, derma rollers can also help you to absorb more of the serums and lotions that you put onto your skin directly following a treatment. For maximum impact, we recommend trying a Vitamin C serum. Here are some of the key benefits.

Powerful anti-aging effects

Like derma rolling, applying Vitamin C is a great way to stimulate the production of more collagen. This means that the two used together can deliver a real punch, delaying the signs of aging and helping to keep your skin firm and tight. This is a great way to target wrinkles and crow’s feet.

No more dark spots

There are lots of reasons you might have dark spots on your skin, from melanoma to marks left behind from pimples and spots. Derma rolling will help to break these down, while applying a Vitamin C serum can boost the effect by brightening the skin. It will help to lighten dark patches without affecting the overall pigmentation of your skin.

A heavy dose of antioxidants

As an antioxidant, Vitamin C can also help to prevent future acne breakouts. If you've turned to derma rolling because of scarring left by your acne attacks, then using the right serum as part of your routine could help to target the problem at the source. Use of antioxidants also helps to give your skin a more even tone.

Brighten the skin under your eyes

Dark patches under your eyes can have a huge impact on your overall appearance, making you seem tired and withdrawn. Encouraging your skin to produce more collagen doesn't just help with aging, but can also dramatically reduce those dark circles to wake up your face and give your skin a brighter appearance.

Finish with a healthy glow

Take all these things together and you'll find that the overall impact is a healthy, natural glow and an even complexion.
