When it comes to skincare, we’re always looking for the latest treatments to achieve flawless skin, and sometimes that means trying weird and scary-looking contraptions. Take, for instance, the derma-roller. This eerie-looking skincare instrument contains a roller head covered in microneedles. We know it sounds a bit horrifying, but it’s not as bad as you think. It’s even safe enough to use at home.
This tool is used for a microneedling treatment, which you can even do on yourself: just lightly roll the tiny needles onto your skin. By creating pressure on the skin, the derma-roller helps promote the growth of collagen, which can help smooth skin, reduce wrinkles, and even help cure acne and scars. Fascinated by this weird device, we decided to put it to the test on this week’s episode of Trend Testers — and you can see the entire process in the video above.
But TBH, something like the derma-roller is something you need to experience for yourself to truly decide if you're a fan or not.
Below are five simple yet highly-rated options you can try right at home.
