The top skin concerns and how to fix them with a derma roller

Although there are many skin concerns that many of us wish to address, some are very common and will affect most of us at some point during our lives.

Alongside wanting perfect nails, shiny hair and flat stomachs, many people are willing to invest more time, effort and money into addressing skin complaints as part of regular self-care routines.

Having glowing, flawless skin really helps to boost confidence, and luckily there are a ton of simple methods that can help you achieve it!


The thought of wrinkled, aged skin can seem like a lifetime away for women in their 20s, but it happens to the best of us. Everyone will start to notice those fine lines appearing on their faces, wishing they were gone.

Although wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process and give our faces character, they can also make us look tired or stressed. Luckily, it is possible to reduce and soften wrinkles for a fresher, more rested look.

Using a derma roller stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin, encouraging a firmer, plumper appearance with less visible wrinkles.

To enhance the effects of this treatment further, apply a product such as hyaluronic acid to the skin after using a derma roller. This ingredient deeply hydrates and plumps the skin to diminish fines lines and wrinkles.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are the result of rapid weight loss or gain and are much more common than we might think. Whether it’s due to weight loss, weight gain, having a baby, or even growing in height, our bodies can soon become scattered with these red or white lines.

The derma roller offers a simple yet effective solution to stretch marks, breaking the skin’s damaged cells and encouraging it to produce the collagen it needs to gradually smooth stretch marks over.

Applying retinol serum straight after dermarolling will help you to notice the effects faster. This clever serum speeds up skin cell turnover, encouraging smoother skin with improved texture and tone.


While some people wear their scars with pride, for many people their scars are distressing and unsightly. Acne scars in particular can have a huge impact on confidence and self esteem, especially because they usually occur on the face and are difficult to hide with makeup.

Most types of scarring can be significantly reduced with a course of derma roller treatments carried out at home. The derma roller breaks up old scar tissue and creates new collagen, replacing scar tissue with smooth healthy skin.

You can get even better and faster results by combining the derma roller with collagen-boosting vitamin C serum, which also helps to fade any hyperpigmentation.

Enlarged pores

Some people are seemingly blessed with perfect, pore free skin. However, many of us are constantly struggling with oily skin and large, clogged pores, using makeup to try and hide them, which can eventually make them worse.

Although pore size is usually genetically determined, the good news is that a derma roller can make pores appear smaller by stimulating new collagen, which plumps up and thickens the skin.
