Bringing Hollywood Beauty Secrets To The UK
The derma roller is the new craze of beauty treatment, continuously proving itself to live up to its award-winning reputation. It consists of a roller filled with rows of minuscule microneedles, around one-quarter of the size of a normal needle. The state of the art piece of equipment is rolled over the face in several different directions, breaking through the skin to penetrate the dermal layer of the skin.
So Why Are Celebrities Loving This Treatment?
The dermal layer of the skin holds all of your skin’s collagen, which when stimulated, naturally rejuvenates the skin. Undergoing a dermaroller treatment will encourage your skin to repair itself naturally, restoring elasticity and strength. It is a proven treatment to remove skin imperfections such as scarring, stretch marks and wrinkles.
Although at first the idea of a compilation of needles being rolled over your skin sounds unpleasant, the dermaroller, in fact, causes no damage to your skin aside from the initial tiny pinpricks. As opposed to other treatment such as a skin peel, no skin is removed, instead, it is repaired.
So, now on to the best part, what well-known celebrities are loving this treatment?
The Kardashian family have never been shy about sharing their most favourite beauty secrets and have a huge following who will try out just about anything they recommend.

One of the biggest questions that come to mind when anyone sees a paparazzi snap of Jennifer Aniston is, how does she stay looking so young? Is it Botox? Fillers? A Facelift? The answer is, the Dermaroller! Jennifer claims that she swears by the treatment and it is the closest she will ever get to any type of cosmetic treatment. In an interview, Jennifer stated that she loves the dermaroller because “it allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in.” The treatment helps the skin to regenerate at a faster rate, which smooths out the appearance of wrinkles.
