Tested for you: „Dermaroller“ + „Red“ of Doctor Mi!

Again and again I read and heard about the successes that can be achieved with a dermaroller, so-called microneedling, on the face: smoothing wrinkles, lines and scars, eliminating pigmentation disorders or minimizing pores. You can not only have such a treatment carried out by a beautician or a dermatologist, but you can also do it yourself at home. The only thing you need is a dermaroller. I got it from the skin care line of “Doctor Mi!”. The device has micro-fine stainless steel needles in diameter of 2.5 millimetres with antibacterial coating and ergonomic handle. I had the device in my drawer at home for weeks, but I have to admit that I was afraid of the first time using it. I picked it up every now and then and rolled it over the back of my hand as a test. Pretty painful, so I put the dermaroller back again. Also, I wasn’t sure how exactly to use it. How hard should I press anyway? With what movements? A thousand questions went through my head. Test needling at the dermatologist So I decided to get a professional to show me how to use the dermaroller properly. “It is important to clean the skin thoroughly beforehand,” said Dr. Miriam Rehbein and used the salicylic acid-containing “Tone.S”, “otherwise it can lead to unsightly inflammation.” Then she picked up a new dermaroller and moved it in a star shape on my face. First the cheeks, then the forehead and finally the chin – she saved me the sensitive lip area the first time. At the same speed and pressure, she rolled 4-5 times vertically, horizontally and diagonally across each zone. She commented positively that here and there small bleeding occurred on my face. “Due to the micro fine injuries to the skin, care products can penetrate particularly deeply into the skin layers and support its regeneration process.” Spoke it and distributed the “Red” face cream on the treated areas. This has a high content of retinol for additional skin smoothing, pore refinement and collagen regeneration. Then the dermatologist put the dermaroller on again, “to needle the product really nicely into the skin.” I found the second run less painful than the first. But afterwards my face was flushed like after a sunburn. I soon went to bed and, amazingly, the next morning my complexion was rosy and smoother. Now I needle at home I have now been using my dermaroller consistently once a week for the past three months.… weiterlesen

Tested for you: Doctor Mi! „LIP TECMI! Retinol“

Due to the daily mask requirement I have been struggling with extremely dry lips lately. Most lipcare products didn’t help. Even worse, I felt that I had to use more and more cream. I was convinced by “Tecmi! Retinol”, which I’ve been using for a four weeks now. The first time I applied it, I was a bit confused because the cream initially feels like a light peeling on the lips. The feeling disappears quickly when you move your lips against each other. Encapsulated retinol and high-dose vitamin C are released to protect the sensitive lip skin from external influences and to support cell renewal. Mango butter, jojoba and argan oil result in a super smooth effect. What I also like is the slight warming effect, which lasts quite a long time and suggests a blood circulation increasing effect. This visibly intensifies the lip red. As recommended in the package insert, I also spread the cream over the lip of the lip to refine the small lines of expression. Doesn’t work immediately of course. But over time it seems to me that the upper lip is actually getting a little smoother. I always carry “Tecmi!” with me so that I can use it during the day when my lips are getting drier again. What I am currently testing is to needle the cream in the evenings – and only in the evening! – with a dermaroller into the lip’s skin. Stings a little bit, but is bearable. But one must not press too hard. This treatment should intensify the effect of the product and make the lips a little more voluminous and plump and reduce wrinkles. I have not yet noticed the former, but the fine lines have actually become fewer. I keep on rolling! Doctor Mi! „LIP TECMI! Retinol“, € 59… weiterlesen

Well Rolled! Pinprick by Pinprick to a more Beautiful Skin

Micro-fine needle pricks improve the appearance of the skin. Especially effective in combination with Radio Frequency. “My insider tip for a radiant, healthy skin is the combination of Hyaluron skin booster and Dermaroller,” says Dr. Sonja Sattler, Head of Bellari Frankfurt. “With skin boost, the particularly low-viscosity hyaluronic acid is injected over a large area into the uppermost layer of the skin. This creates a glow effect and a special radiance to the face. Wrinkles are eliminated and, due to the water-binding property of Hyaluronic Acid, the skin stays moisturised and padded from the inside for a longer period of time. The Dermaroller ensures new collagen formation through the desired micro-injuries on the skin surface.” As a result, the entire skin appears finer, smaller-pored and rejuvenated. And, last but not least, scars of all kinds can be corrected as well. What is a Dermaroller? A Dermaroller or Dermapen is a handy roller with microfine needles which it’s why it’s also known as Microneedling. The needle length varies from 0.5 to 1.5 millimetres, depending on the requirements and body region. The microfine punctures simulate injuries to the skin without really damaging the tissue and the cells around the puncture canal are stimulated to produce more collagen. What is the exact treatment? First of all, the area to be treated is thoroughly cleansed and an anaesthetic cream applied. This requires 20 – 30 minutes to take effect after which the practitioner rolls the Dermaroller over the face for about 20 minutes. If necessary, individual areas can be treated several times and more intensively. A disposable sterile device is used for each patient. Dermarollers with shorter needles are also available for use at home. However, one should first be shown how to use them by a professional before attempting the procedure oneself. In cases of acne, it is best to leave it alone. Is one presentable after the treatment? Absolutely. The skin is slightly reddened at first, but this can be easily concealed with make-up. The redness disappears completely after 3-4 days and what remains is an improved skin structure. The treatment can be repeated at any time. What is the difference between this and Needling plus Radio Frequency? The combination of multipolar Radio Frequency technology (RF) and Microneedling leads to a fractional treatment of the skin. This makes it possible to tackle several skin problems simultaneously. The procedure is particularly suitable as an anti-aging measure since it counteracts the signs of skin aging: Wrinkles and loss of elasticity or sagging skin around the chin.… weiterlesen
