Derma roller Rash! Help!
Dermaroller rash! Help!
I've been using the derma rolling system for a few weeks. I was hoping it could get rid of my under eye wrinkles and crow’s feet.
I don't really have any wrinkles on my face except for around my eyes so I thought derma rolling can help because it's supposed to build collagen.
But now a few weeks in I'm noticing red, irritated and slightly itchy skin around my eyes. I think it's a dermaroller rash.
I know you can't help me with a rash, but I'm definitely going to stop dermarolling.
So, what can I do to help reduce those lines and crepy skin under my eyes? Thanks Vickie.
Editor’s Note : Hi and thanks for your question regarding a dermaroller rash. This is the first I’ve heard of getting a rash from dermarolling……….
However, I’ve heard about a number of other side-effects from improper use of the derma roller like infections and irritation.
Personally, I wouldn’t use the dermaroller around my eyes! If a trained professional is performing a derma roller treatment – that’s different – but I wouldn't do it to myself at home with a dermaroller I purchased online.
Here is what I am doing to help reduce under eye lines:
1. I perform facial exercises which help in indirect ways, but I also do an additional eye exercise called the Circle Up Rub. I’ll explain that below.
2. I apply vitamin C serum every morning and retinol serum at night.
Ok, so here is the link to facial exercises so you can learn more about them. Trust me! They don’t take long …………….a few minutes a session about 2 times a week. More in the beginning, then you can just do a maintenance workout. Check out my before and after pictures at the link above!!!
I also add in the Circle Up Eye Massage:
1. Take your favorite moisturizer like vitamin C serum and apply it gently all around the under eye area.
2. The take your middle fingers and rest them at the inner corner of your eyes – against your nose. Let your thumbs rest on your lower face/jaw area.
3. The open your mouth wide and make a tight O with your lips.
4. Squint with your lower lids so the under eye skin muscle is tight.
5. Then make little tiny circles with your middle fingers moving gently massaging across your lower lids until you reach your outer temples.
Repeat this 5 times.
NOTE: Make sure your lower lid muscles are tight by squinting with your LOWER LIDS ONLY and opening your mouth into a wide O. You want to make sure your under eye skin is not moving a lot and is as taut as possible.
