Hello Amber Babies!
Do you want fuller looking lips, but don’t want lip injections? There’s a less expensive and more natural way to improve the appearance of your lips in just a few minutes every week. Dermarolling provides amazing benefits for lips.
You don’t need expensive, invasive procedures for fuller lips. You can get started easily with a high quality dermaroller, aqua stamp or microneedling pen. Investing a little time and effort can go a long way to enhance the appearance of your lips.
Dermarolling, often referred to as collagen induction therapy, works by creating tiny channels in your skin that leads to collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is produced by your body and helps make your skin soft and young-looking. As we age, our bodies produce less of this protein, which contributes to sagginess and wrinkles.
Ready to get started? Here’s how: Begin by prepping the area with isopropyl rubbing alcohol (70% or higher is recommended). Make sure to disinfect the area you are treating thoroughly to reduce the risk of infection.
What size of dermaroller should you use on your lips? I recommend starting with .20 mm dermaroller or .25 mm aqua stamp. If you are using a dermaroller, begin by rolling the tool in a horizontal motion across your lips 20 times. Make sure to lift the tool after each pass. When finished, roll the tool vertically 20 times from one end of your lips to the other. Repeat these steps two more times.
Always remember to disinfect your tool when finished. Use a spray bottle to spray your tool with alcohol or pour alcohol directly onto the tool. Leave the tool to dry in its case with the lid off to air dry and cover when dry.
If you are dermarolling your scalp or other parts of your face, I recommend using a separate tool for your lips. The scalp if often dirtier than the lip area, so you want to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination.
If you are new to dermarolling, start slowly with a smaller-sized dermaroller or aqua stamp and work your way up to a longer size. Your skin will adjust to the dermaroller over time. Working your way up slowly will ensure that you stick with your routine. Consistency is an important part of taking care of your skin.
For more advanced users, you may stamp each lip separately with a .25 mm or .60 mm aqua stamp after completing the steps above. Make sure you keep your lips closed when dermarolling or stamping your lips. I have YouTube videos for beginners and more advanced users with links to products that can be applied after dermarolling.
Regardless of your level of experience, you may experience dry lips—that is normal. Dermarolling helps exfoliate skin. Check out my videos for links to inexpensive products that will help moisturize your lips.
As always, remember to invest in good quality dermarolling tools. Beware of cheaply made tools that can be purchased online that may do more harm than good. Instead, look for sharp surgical-grade, stainless steel needles.
Tips for success:
- Disinfect your tool and the treatment area properly.
- Be consistent. Set aside a time and day to dermaroll.
- Remember to moisturize the treated area every time.
