Hi everybody I just wanted to write a review on my experience with the 2mm derma roller. I purchased the device on ebay for about $70.00 (Titanium) 2mm. I was scared at first but I've had Fraxel Restore and Fractional c02 laser done so I'm a bit more tolerant to facial pain in the name of beauty :)
I just want to start by saying, don't let anybody tell you this treatment doesn't hurt, because it does! The results are worth the pain though. I see really quick and progressive results and everytime I look in the mirror my skin is looking more and more smooth. I just can't believe that such an inexpensive at home product can work so well :)
I can confidently say, with hand on heart that I've seen the same, if not more results from Fraxel as I have with derma rolling. The areas of my face that respond most to rolling is my temples and cheekbones, which happens to be my most noticeable (Sunlight, frontal conversations and photos). So I was very happy with this. I've also seen results on my soft fleshy part of my cheeks and forehead too but not as much.
I highly recommend at home derma rolling. My pain tolerance/ experience is quit high however so maybe for newbies I would recommend purchasing a 1.5mm. I didn;t use numbing cream either, which would help with the pain I know but it costs like $150!!!
Anyways here is some video reviews I did on the derma roller, enjoy! :)
