Hello there 🙂
We won't let you hang here. Derma rollers (also called micro needle devices) are known in the entire beauty industry as one of the best ways to heal and improve the health and radiance of our skin. Yes, there are expensive microneedle treatments in the office that can have great benefits for acne and other skin care problems, but home treatment with a high-quality derma roller can actually produce similarly exciting results. (Especially if you are consistent and invest in great products to equip your regime with.) Licensed beautician Kerry Benjamin is the queen of microneedles here in Los Angeles and CEO of StackedSkincare, one of the best Dermarollers on the market. As Benjamin explained to us earlier, microneedling is the practice of using a special tool (a chic little roller with hundreds of tiny needles) on the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen and promote the active ingredients in skin care products deeper into the skin. And not just a little bit – we're talking about a whopping 90% or more increase in absorption, folks. "Derma rollers at home are safe, effective and should be used with serums every day," says Benjamin. You can apply gentle strokes horizontally, vertically, and diagonally across your face, neck, and even lips on clean skin, followed by your favorite serums. Or get even more money by adding a serum before you start your rolling ritual. Since not all derma rollers are made in the same way, we have selected the 10 best options that are worth your money – regardless of your budget. Scroll on! This home-made derma roller designed by Benjamin is my personal favorite and has an * almost * solid five-star rating on Sephora's website with over 102 reviews. It is designed to be safe for everyday use. Just make sure your horizontal, vertical and diagonal movements are smooth and that you disinfect your roller head with alcohol after each use. (And replace it monthly!) Violet Gray is known for having only the best, expertly approved products and tools on the beauty market. So it is significant that this is the only derma roll she wears. It has been specially developed to trigger the skin's micro-rejuvenation reaction and in turn to balance the skin's structure, fill in fine lines and make the skin-loving ingredients in your favorite products more effective. You can use this tool alone or directly in front of your product range. Ora's best-selling derma scooters have developed a cult following among skincare enthusiasts everywhere, and while offering a number of desirable options, this is the most wanted and best rated model on the Dermstore website. It features ultra-fine 0.5mm needles that effortlessly slide over your skin and create painless micro dots that signal your skin that they are consuming more energy with collagen and elastin. The result? Glowing, plump looking skin. Aside from the fact that this is definitely the most aesthetically pleasing derma roller in our summary, it is also one of the best if you are looking for a non-invasive option that does not pierce the skin but still promotes blood circulation and facial tension relieves and promotes deeper penetration of products. If you have active breakouts, rosacea, eczema, raised birthmarks or warts, psoriasis or keratosis, this tool is the best alternative without needles. This derma roller is so popular that it is constantly sold out on the Revolve website and is one of the best-selling beauty products in general. To improve natural peeling, improve fine lines and wrinkles, improve radiance and even reduce pore size, lightly roll this smooth black number over your face, lips, neck and gently around your eye area. This top-notch Amazon find has 540 0.25-millimeter microneedles made of surgical steel, which the brand claims are sharper and therefore better for more even skin penetration. Did we mention the price of $ 13? We don't recommend all affordable derma rollers, but this is a high quality one that we (and happy Amazon buyers) are returning in full. This derma roller is another bestseller on Amazon. It is extremely affordable and effective. It has 2126 reviews with an impressive 4.5 star rating. A satisfied customer even called it "pure witchcraft" to help with inflammation and uneven skin texture. For just under $ 10, this derma roller has 1198 reviews on Amazon and an average rating of 4.5 stars. The 0.25 millimeter needles are made of titanium, are durable and can contribute to a healthier and more radiant complexion when used with your preferred skin care products. This titanium derma roll from Koi Beauty is one of the best options if you want to extend the benefits of microneedling to your body. With a longer demand length, this selection is NOT (repeat after us, NOT) for your face, but perfectly acceptable to give your body additional TLC. This epic microneedle kit contains virtually every product and tool you need for your healthiest and most radiant skin to date. Yes, it's an investment, but it's also a jackpot for exciting skin care products. Here's the thin part of what's inside: a lactic acid-toned toner for exfoliating dead skin cells, a peptide treatment to increase firmness and even your skin tone, a derma roller to stimulate skin repair, a gold-plated vibration massager, which increases effectiveness Your products and, last but not least, a reusable silicone mask enriched with hyaluronic acid to achieve a double victory.
This is important. Since using a serum in combination with your derma roller will increase the effectiveness, absorption and overall effectiveness of the ingredients it contains, you should avoid using formulas with strong, potentially irritating ingredients such as vitamin C and retinol.
Instead, on days when you use your derma roller, choose serums with other active ingredients such as stem cells, growth factors and hyaluronic acid.
"These are the types of ingredients that really maximize the effects of microneedling at home to stimulate collagen, increase cell turnover, increase hyperpigmentation, smooth fine lines, firm, plump and hydrated," explains Benjamin.

This is one of my all time favorite serums and is recommended by facials and dermatologists alike. It is light, absorbs immediately and soothes and cools your complexion even with powerful plant substances, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid for an additional boost of moisture. Finding a quality serum with epidermal growth factors is one of the best antidotes if you want to address and reduce a variety of different skin problems. According to Benjamin, this top pick is particularly suitable for combating breakouts, removing pigments and brightening dark spots, as well as promoting healthy collagen production. This serum is one of the most technologically advanced on the market and is particularly suitable for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. But thanks to an exclusive, patented technology with a homemade combination of powerful neuropeptides, including XEP 30, a biomimetic molecule that mimics the peptide contained in the cone snail venom, it also works wonders for age spots and redness. There is no doubt that there is no better serum in terms of brightening and radiance than Caudalíes cult-favorite French favorite. It contains the patented ingredient of the brand, Viniferine (a natural compound that is contained in grape juice with a strong lightening power), as well as olive qualan, organic chamomile and organic grape water. This serum (a superstar collaboration between Victoria Beckham and Augustinus Bader) is an answered prayer and addresses every type of skin condition. Of course, it has the same patented technology that has made Bader’s face creams the best product since sliced bread, but it’s also full of other strategic additions like yeast ferment complex (for smooth skin texture and hydration), three weight hyaluronic acid (to trap moisture) ), Niacinamide (to soothe and reduce redness), olive fruit extract (to protect against blue light damage), microalgae extract (to reduce damage caused by environmental pollutants) and flower biopeptides (to balance the skin's surface bacteria).
