Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano-channels. This is very similar, but less invasive, than microneedling and allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other skin blemishes through the transdermal delivery system for increased effectiveness of serums. Unlike microneedling, nano-needling does not require any numbing cream and will painlessly smooth the skin's texture to leave your skin glowing by triggering your body’s self-rejuvenation process. Our top pick? OsmosisMD Epic Skin Tool.
Dermarolling, a form of microneedling, involves using a mini wheel covered with hundreds of tiny needles to gently prick the face. Dermarollers may look frightening, but, trust us, they work miracles for clearing acne scars, fading fine lines, and evening out skin tone. A dermaroller is an instrument that creates micro pathways in the skin for product to better penetrate. Beginners should start with small needles (0.1-0.2mm) which wouldn't necessarily be for collagen synthesis, but it's a great way to get your products to absorb and penetrate the skin. When the needle is larger, (0.5mm+), that's when you're getting into "wound healing stimulation.” This sounds worse than it is. A dermaroller creates tiny pricks around the skin and gives enough space in between so the wound healing response takes over. You essentially grow new skin! That, in turn, leads to a smoother, more even, and plumper complexion. Our top pick? Alitura Derma Roller.
LED or Light-Emitting Diode has been shown to alter the skin cells in order to produce a variety of agreeable outcomes, depending on the color of the light being used. Encouraging evidence has shown that blue LED light can alter the microbiome of the skin to improve acne, that red LED light can stimulate collagen synthesis, and that yellow LED light can reduce redness and healing time. Dermatologists agree that these devices are safe for at-home use and, with consistent use, provide positive results. Our top two picks? MYSKINBUDDY and Le Mieux DermaRed Device.
