Face roller is not a new tool it has been used in China from more than 100 years while Dermaroller was introduced for clinic procedures by dermatologist and cosmetologist but now it is easily available on online platform and as well as off-line platforms . social media and celebrities have made this more popular by uploading videos demonstrating how to use and it’s anfiageing effects & and second reason Of its popularity is that it’s not very expensive tool .Now let’s talk about both the equipment seperately
Face Roller is a device with a handle and two rollers made of semi precious stone.It comes in different Stones ,one of the very popular stone face roller is jade .
Jade roller is a very common face roller but there are many more. face roller has two rollers one big roller in front and one behind a small roller ,the big roller is used for the entire face and a small roller is used for the eye area and around the mouth area.
The benefits of face rollers are quite similar to Guasha as in it helps in reduction in dark circles and puffiness , it gives a nice lift , improves the much flow , removes the toxins , make your face more fresh and with extra glow & brightens the complexion, reduce your lines and removes negativity , tightening of neck and seamless flow of energy. I have explained the role of different stones under Guasha topic, which will help you to chose the stone, I personally love the jade and rose quartz because of its ANTIAGEING effect.
Directions to use face roller –
(Always remember to clean & sanitize the stone and then also refrigerate the stone for 2-4 hours for extra benefits & cooling effective like how we did for guasha)
1- You can use any vitamin serum, facial oil or moisturising cream so that the stone glides smoothly without friction. You can start with mild pressure and slowly increase it to moderate pressure.
2 We always start from the net to activate the lymphatic flow so that in case if there is any blockage that we can open so that the flow is seamlessThe direction for the neck is downward from behind the ear to the collar bone and then from center of neck to the side of neck We can every exercise 3 to 10 times
3-Next is the jaw line, starting from the chin to the jaw angle in outward direction, covering the entire jaw line on both
Use the smaller stone roller to cover undereye , mouth and brow area.
2 – Start the under eye area, starting from inner eyes corner to outer eyes corner.
3- start the eyebrow area Starting from the inner eyebrow to outer eyebrow
4-And now the mouth area purse your lips and Roll the drum in outward and upward direction towards the ear and now we are going to use the bigger roller will start cheeks
5-Move to the cheek area, starting from centre to the sides in upward & outward direction.
6-On forehead we do from Centre to decide and from eyebrows to hairline and we are going to end by rolling down the side of neck again to clear all the toxins
Dermaroller looks like face roller but it’s mechanism of action is different which is microneedling. Like faceroller has a smooth drum Made of semiprecious stone this roller has multiple find needles on its surface.
when we roll the Dermaroller on skin surface We actually cause physical injury with these fine needles causing multiple puncture on the skin. The puncture created on the skin by the device are superficial and controlled and does not damage the entire superficial layer of skin, because of trauma the skin releases growth and healing factors and starts the production of collagen & elastin and helps in remodelling of collagen it also helps in the formation of new vessels as well as also helps to break superficial scars. More collagen means more youthful skin and less lines with firmer & smoother skin
Dermaroller can be performed at home as well but make sure to consult your dermatologist before using it at home as there are many skin conditions in which you can’t use this device like eczema, rash, sensitive skin or if you are on some strong medication which can make skin sensitive like Isotret / acne medicine . Please make sure that you are buying the device from authentic place
