    How painful and whether the effect: reviews

    I bought a dermaroller 0.5 mm for the face. Special professional funds were not at hand, laminated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Rolled not long, no pressure. Redness, but not as strong. The procedure is done at night, as recommended, because the skin regeneration happens at night when we sleep. Smoothed the wrinkles, they have become less noticeable. It took 5days and I am very happy with the result. However, there is one drawback. After this procedure, there are spots, although this was even tan.

    Monday I did the first procedure, very painful. But yesterday I saw that on my forehead have ALREADY started to shrink my enlarged pores. They there already are not that deep. All I was prescribed 8 treatments plus for me is made my skin. I really hope for a spectacular result.

    Th., http://www.woman.ru/beauty/face/thread/4042823/

    The application of dermaroller is an addition to the correction procedures that I do. The treatment of cellulite and weight reduction, unfortunately, is not particularly helpful. But to treat stretch marks, the dermaroller is very useful. Use a wide drum and the length of the needles 1-1.5 mm. Stretch marks after 2-3 treatments begin to itch intensely, blushing, unable to crusty. But the tone of the skin returns and 15-20 procedures, the effect is very noticeable.
