WHAT IS IT?
The Grass Roots® Derma Roller is a small hand-held rolling device for the face and body. It has 540 titanium needles, which gently break the skin surface for amazing benefits to the skin. Our sleek matt black roller has a choice of penetration depth of either 0.3 or 0.5 mm and is housed in its own sleek protective and sterile case.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Skin needling assists product penetration – topical products applied after using your Grass Roots® derma roller, perfuse into the skin faster and deeper. It creates micro-channels, penetrated from the surface of your skin, which stimulates cell renewal – increasing your skins thickness, whilst plumping out fine lines and stretchmarks. Skin needling is great for improving scars including acne scars and uneven skin texture. The tiny titanium needles create a clean puncture into the hardened skin, breaking up scar tissue and encouraging new collagen and elastin to form. Over time hardened skin becomes softer and skin texture becomes smoother, especially when combined with Grass Roots® Skin Drench Super Serum.
And as if that wasn’t enough – skin needling even helps with pigmentation. Sun damage and pigmentation is caused by an over-production of melanin by damaged melanocytes (these are cells that produce melanin). Skin needling encourages these melanocytes to repair which then regulates melanin production – evening out skin tone. Whatever your skin concerns – this handy gadget should be an essential item for your at home box of skin tools!
