Being that I avoid most beauty products, this opened a different world for me where I knew I was just going to have to find some different routes to help my skin and in a natural way. When I was originally asked to review a product from Total Skincare Solutions, I was thinking I would pick out a good skin cream or acne wash. But then I noticed a few products I had never heard of which could help in even more of a natural way.
I was sent over the Derma Renew Skin Roller to review AND help me with my skin from head to toe! "The Derma Renew Skin Roller is a clinically proven device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate elastin and collagen production in the skin without causing any damage." With 200 titanium micro needles along the roller, you can safely and effectively help stimulate your skins dermal cell turnover.
"The human body reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will only heal as far as it must to keep you healthy - which is different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering the healing process, you encourage your body to continue healing until the healing process is complete."
Now, while this may seem confusing and an untraditional way method of hurting yourself constantly, it is safe at home using needles shorter than 1.0mm AND actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it. If you cut yourself, your skin will heal itself back to normal; If you cut yourself deep enough you end up with a scar; But if you constantly rub or cut an area of your skin, your body will eventually build up a strength and tolerance in that area.
Although I do feel a certain sentimental feeling when I look at the scars/cellulite covering my stomach, I know my tummy will never be the same. I went from a cute stomach to a flabby and marked up belly. I feel like even if I ever got rid of the flab I would still be embarrassed if someone saw my stomach because of the stretch mark party I've got going on down there as well as the cellulite bumps in certain areas.
Right away I broke this bad boy out upon arriving at my door. Because I have a pretty good tolerance for pain (even with my sensitive skin), I wasn't as intimidated as I think some others might be. The Derma Roller is supposed to reduce our size, improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles and lines, help with the appearance of visible scars and increase skin elasticity.
Using this once a day, I do have to say it feels quite odd. Afterwards you can see from my pictures, my skin is red and a bit irritated from the needling. BUT, this after effect goes away within 10 -15 minutes and feels just fine for the rest of the day. Now although, I have been using this for a few weeks, I've only noticed a slight improvement in my skins feel and my acne (especially on the back of my arms). With all natural solutions, things take time.
Available to Purchase/Cost: $77 Derma Renew Skin Roller
Recommendation: Do I think it worked, yes pretty good but it is hard to tell after only a few weeks but my skin feels better. The price is pretty decent for a natural treatment whereas you are avoiding the costly expense of professional treatment. I am not sure I would buy this at this price again unless it was on sale for a bit cheaper but I definitely recommend trying this!
