RejuvaRoll vs. Derma Roller
RejuvaRoll vs. Derma Roller
What's the difference? Which is better?
Let's compare before we contrast...
The premise behind both rollers--our RejuvaRoll (pictured first) and its competitor, the Derma Roller--is a dermatological treatment called "skin micro-needling", also known as collagen induction therapy.
Micro-needling is used for an extensive number of skin issues: reducing wrinkles... improving the appearance of acne and surgical scars... help with stretch marks... reducing cellulite... combating hair loss and signs of aging...and improving uneven, pitted skin.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Both devices use micro needles to stimulate circulation and encourage collagen production in pursuit of these ends. (There is, though, more to say on that subject!) Micro-needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy, effective for skin conditions brought about by ineffective collagen production and skin repair. Properly accomplished, the way RejuvaRoll works, micro-needling encourages collagen production and enhanced skin repair by creating microscopic trauma to the upper layers of the skin. The extremely slight “damage” causes the blood vessels and skin to rejuvenate itself, due to the need for increased collagen and elastin formation for repair. It’s important that this stimulation be both regular and controlled in order to achieve the right ends.
And speaking of ends, it’s at the ends of these two devices’ pins where the differences begin. The Derma Roller, its distributors say, is intended to pierce the skin slightly, opening it up to allow for better absorption of the “vitamin creams” that are sold with the device. In fact, before using the Derma Roller, your skin must be prepped beforehand with an antibacterial solution.
No Piercing, No Vitamin Creams
As for me and my house…no piercing and no “vitamin creams.” RejuvaRoll is completely noninvasive, it does not pierce the skin. You don’t have to sterilize your skin first or apply any healing ointments afterwards in order to help heal your skin. You can read all about exactly how RejuvaRoll works here.
Benefits of Electrophoresis
For further contrast, let’s get down to brass tacks, as it were…The Derma Roller has 192 surgical steel micro-needles. Our own roller has 490 micro-pins comprised of copper and iron, for a gentler, noninvasive action. Some of the iron needles are plated in zinc and some of the copper needles are plated in silver. This allows for a beneficial process called electrophoresis to take place—a unique benefit the Derma Roller doesn’t offer.
The cylinder of our RejuvaRoll is soft and pliable—not rigid, as with the Derma Roller. I believe you will find RejuvaRoll much more comfortable when applied to your skin.
Lastly, the RejuvaRoll is superior in quality and craftsmanship. You’ll find in our RejuvaRoll a durable wooden handle, stainless steel moving parts, and now a flexible pin bed, for better durability, skin modulation and comfort.
We have received many high praises for our roller. You can read the reviews here.
Bottom line: you decide.
