Free Dermaroller with Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture treatment by Julie Nelson TCM in VancouverWhy We LOVE Dermarolling and What It Actually Does

Ok – what is dermarolling?

It essentially causes micro tears to the epidermis layer of the skin. In short, you are running 540 tiny needles across your face causing all kinds of trauma to the skin. Why is this a good thing?


Because your skin immediately responds by bringing blood and oxygen to the wounds – it activates your body’s wound response which means improved micro circulation to your face.

The result? Immediately following dermarolling your skin is red, its hot and it may feel itchy or tingling. In short it looks like you fell asleep in Cancun with a bottle of tequila. But the redness fades within a couple of hours leaving you with a healthy glowing complexion.

The other great benefit of micro-needling and yes, dermarolling is another form of micro-needling, is that serum applied immediately after needling get absorbed way better then when applied to regular skin. The pores are open – everything is open so absorption and the serums effectiveness are at their highest.

This is a great time of year to micro needle – your tan has faded and your skin is looking pale and blotchy. Needling is a natural way to boost your complexion. You need to stay out of the sun and have realty great sunblock on right after you needle. This time of year – is the best time to do it with cold, dark rainy days.

We also like micro-needles because they help reduce large pores and treat acne scaring – mild acne scaring.
