DermaPlump! What is it?!!
To summarize it really simply, the DermaPlump is an at home micro needling device which causes minor trauma to the skin and promotes our bodies natural healing ability to create fresh plump skin.
What does the DermaPlump do?
In a nutshell......
Rolling hundreds of tiny needles all over your face might sound like some sort of self harm but it inflicts very little pain and discomfort to the skin while resulting in a multitude of benefits. While overall improving our skins health, it also gives us more out of our products as we're breaking the skins greatest barrier and allowing our products to penetrate that bit deeper. Allowing our products to go further isn't the only way micro needling helps improve our skins health, the main core benefit of carrying out this treatment is giving your collagen and elastin that kick they need to do their job while promoting the bodies natural healing ability and creating fresh, plump skin and lips.
What is the DermaPlump - Extended?
The DermaPlump is an at home micro needling hand held rolling device which is made up of 540 0.5 mm titanium needles. The micro injuries created by the roller stimulate the bodies naturally healing ability and therefore increases your bodies collagen and elastin productivity in the area being treated, which results in smoother, firmer skin. The DermaPlump was launched after micro needling in skin and laser and clinics was and the treatments are the exact same, except micro needling that you would receive from a skin specialist in a clinic would inflict the same results on a larger scale as it's penetrating that bit further again with longer needles (Numbing Cream is Provided) The DermaPlump comes in a fraction of the cost and is perfect for all of you on the go Mums, workaholics, gym bunnies or even those of you who are not ready to get deeper micro needling done by a kin specialist or perhaps don't have enough time in your schedule to allow for the pealing and healing time that comes with having the treatment.

Reduces Black Heads and Closes Pores
As we are opening up tiny micro channels all over the skin, we're removing hard to reach black heads and creating fresh plump skin closing existing pores.
Plumps Skin and Lips
As we are promoting the production of collagen, results include fresh and plump skin and lips. Lips become naturally bigger.

DermaPlump for Beard Growth
A lot of people don't know this but for all you beard lovers or for all you friends of beard lovers (It's 2018,we all know a few) The DermaPlump maximizes serum absorption and stimulates the sleeping follicles.
How Do I Use It?
In order to use your DermaPlump effectively, role in a criss-cross pattern.
When we say criss-cross pattern, we mean role vertically over the first area, then role horizontally over the area to achieve full coverage.
While you are carrying out the treatment, we suggest applying product to the area before and after rolling each section. Before selecting which product to use, we would also highly suggest speaking to a skin specialist and making sure that it's appropriate. Lightening serum is excellent for lighting dark spots and pigmentation. Hyaluronic acid is also a common product used when carrying out Derma rolling.
Your Questions Answered:
How Often Can I Use It?
You can use the DermaPlump 2-3 times per week and once you're cleaning it correctly, you can get up to 8 weeks out of it before having to replace it.
Can I use the DermaPlump if I Have Filler?
Yes you can. In fact it's recommended in order to get longer out of your filler. You just have to wait 4 weeks after having the collagen injected to use the Derma Roller as if you use it within the 4 weeks, you could be at risk of moving your filler.
Can I use the DermaPlump if I Have Rosacea?
You can use the derma roller over mild rosacea that is not active to improve complexion. If you have active rosacea then derma rollering is not suitable. Also, if you have mild rosacea which is not active and you begin using the DermaPlump and as a result, your rosacea flares up, then you should stop using the the DermaPlump immediately. If you are unsure of whether the treatment will be safe or not, then we highly recommend speaking to a skincare specialist and seeking advice.

"What did we do before DermaPlump at home microneedling?! Probably spent a fortune on creams promising to wind back time and take away those wrinkles, or even more extreme measures like botox. Each to their own I say - but I find the microneedle roller so easy to use, it's quick, painless, and really delivers results. It's a yes from me!" Kristel O
"So far I love this roller my skin in a week as improved especially the lines around my mouth, here’s looking forward to the next few weeks." Alison C
"I AM SHOCKED AT HOW GOOD THE DERMAROLLER IS" I've struggled with cystic acne for about 6 or 7 years. I didn't change my skincare routine, just used the Dermaroller and it's made my day. I didn't think I'd see results so quickly!" Caoimhe G
"Aghhhh, my pores, I've had a problem with pores for years and nothing I used worked, until now. I can't believe how good this product works. You have a customer for life." Jane M
"I just find it so, SO good. I've just placed an order for another one. After using the DermaPlump, you can straight back into your usual skin regime or you can use the masques afterwards. I use the masques as they contain hyaluronic acid and retinol A which hydrate and refresh the skin while providing it with loads of moisture. With Micro Needling, your causing a little trauma to the skin, making tiny holes and when you apply your product afterwards, it absorbs a lot deeper which is what we really want! We want our products to travel right down to the dermis and be able to just get the full benefit of the products because the products that you are using at home are topical so they are working to some extent but you'll never get the full benefit as they can't penetrate deep enough in the skin."
