I got the courage to try one a few months back because I was asked to try it for free and, I was glad I tried it because it didn't hurt. Recently, I was given the chance to try the ElimiScar Facial Care Kit and I looked forward to trying it.
Before we head on over to my review, here is a quick product description from the company:
Elimiscar Derma roller and Vitamin C serum work together to revitalize tone and texture and restore skin's youthful appearance while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring skin's texture. The combined action of this pair is designed to help protect against environmental damage while helping target, repair and defy aging.
Reveal clear, radiant skin with the Clear Skin Kit from Elimiscar. Visibly transform skin clarity and reduce the appearance of acne scars with Elimiscar Dermaroller and Vitamin C Serum. This kit dramatically transforms skin with a cutting-edge blend of peptides and antioxidants that provides complete protection by repairing and strengthening skin cells and their functions.
The ElimiScar derma roller has 8 microneedle discs with 24 0.5 mm microneedles per disc. The total number of microneedles in the ElimiScar Dermaroller is 192 which seems a lot but works really well. It has a gold-colored, plastic easy-grip sculptured handle which makes it easy to hold and control. The microneedles are made of 100% surgical stainless steel and is gamma sterilized.
This came in a pre-sterilized packaging and is ready-to-use straight out of the pouch. Every time I use it, that's before and after, I like to sterilize it by dropping it in boiling water for about 5 minutes, just to make sure that it's sterilized and clean.
I use the ElimiScar Derma Roller once every 4 days. I use it at night after cleansing my skin with my facial wash. To use it, I roll the ElimiScar derma roller in a small spot, in 4 different directions (vertical, horizontal, left diagonal, right diagonal). I only apply a slight pressure, don't press it too hard!, and this shouldn't feel painful at all. The feeling is similar to a slight prickly and a bit itchy feeling but not painful.
I avoid using this over my acne and pimple as well cystic acne because it might aggravate the condition. My skin sometimes turn a bit red due to the derma roller but returns to its normal color after a few minutes. You can watch the video I made below for a video review and how to use this kit.
The ElimiScar derma roller makes super tiny, microscopic holes on the surface of my skin to help my skin absorb the serums and beauty products better. I like how easy it is to use and that it's not painful to use. The derma roller is light and easy to control so that I don't over-exert pressure while using this.
The Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid is effective in brightening my complexion as well as keeping my skin fresh. I've always loved Vitamin C Serum and the ElimiScar Vitamin C Serum is as effective as the Vitamin C Serum I'm using right now.
The ElimiScar Facial Care Kit Set I received is high quality and effective. For those who are scared of needles, with proper use, the derma roller doesn't hurt and is worth a try. :)
