[BEAUTY] Review: Derma Roller System

Choosing the right skincare is important for our skin, don't you agree? But do you know that most of the time our skin can only absorb 0.3% nutrients from our skincare? What we really need is an effective beauty treatment that helps enhance the effectiveness of skincare and improve the overall health of our skin.

I wouldn't have thought of getting the much raved Derma Roller System from Canada if it is not for my acne scars and enlarged pores due to my frequent travelling routine lately. Let's see if it works wonder on my skin...

What is Derma Roller System?

This micro-needle skin roller is a revolutionary hand-held device for the face, hair and body. As one of the most effective and affordable skin care treatments so far, it helps to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin, renew the skin regularly and promote healthier skin.

Benefits of Derma Roller System:

❤ Anti-aging / Anti-wrinkle
❤ Cellulite removal or reduction
❤ Hair restoration
❤ Hyperpigmentation treatment
❤ Scar removal (including acne scar removal)
❤ Skin smoothing
❤ Stretch mark removal or reduction

How Does It Work?

It uses Collagen Induction Therapy (C.I.T.), where the derma rollers’ 200 fine medical-grade needles are painlessly rolled over your skin to "open up" the pores and trigger your body's natural healing process to create new, healthier tissue to replace the imperfections of older skin.

When it is used with lotion / serum, the effectiveness of the skincare is enhanced by up to 40 times! Around 1-2 hours after using the derma roller, these micro-channels fully close through the body's natural healing process, providing just enough time for new collagen structures to form within the skin’s lower layers.

By continuously triggering the body's natural healing process this way, your skin constantly stimulates collagen and elastin production needed to help restore and remodel your skin on a cosmetic level.

How Long until I See Results?

Within the first 3-4 weeks, the skin will be significantly smoother and clearer. It should heal completely after several months.

How to Choose the Right Derma Roller?

The Derma Roller System comes in 5 different needle sizes ranging from 0.5mm to 2.5mm. You can refer to the Needle Size Guide to find out what best suits your needs.

Mine is a 1.0mm needle - ideal for cell regeneration, anti-aging, pore size reduction and scar healing. I choose 1.0mm because it is best to tackle my current concern on large pores and acne scars, especially when paired with DermaC+ Serum and Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

How to Use (for the face):
1. Roll the Derma Roller gently over the targeted area 4 times vertically, 4 times horizontally, 4 times diagonally to the left and 4 times diagonally to the right.
2. Apply Collagen Cream / Serum / Mask on the face for 10-15 minutes.
3. For daytime use only: Apply sunscreen over face and neck after removing the Collagen Mask

*Remember to avoid eyelids or lips area.

Personal Experience:

The 200 fine needle tips are rather sharp but the roller glides on smoothly and gently on the skin.

It does not feel painful at all, but be careful not to exert too much pressure to prevent bleeding.

The skin turns red immediately after my first-time treatment, but it will subside after a short while. When used over a couple of weeks time, the post-treatment redness is less obvious than before. 

Where to Buy:
You can get them here:, with FREE worldwide shipping.

They offer 60-day unconditional guarantee. If you do not like the product, feel free to return within 60 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price (but the delivery charges, duties and taxes are on you).

DermaC+ Anti-Aging Serum (30ml)

Once the skin is "stimulated", it is best to apply serum for more effective absorption. For those looking for anti-aging solution, this serum may be something you'd consider as it is rich in concentrated Vitamin C, Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid to boost skin moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark circles etc. 

Texture and feel:
This lightweight liquid serum feels gentle and soothing on the skin. A thin layer of application would allow for easy and quick absorption.

Alternatively, you can put on a mask right after treatment to allow maximum nutrients entering into the skin.


Overall, I find that Derma Roller System is a comfortable and painless home DIY treatment that we can use anytime anywhere we want. Although the needle method may not be commonly aceepted in Malaysia, it is worth a try as you'll be surprised by its effectiveness.
