Derma Rollers

By Kelly Ferguson, M.Ac., L.Ac.

More and more frequently we are seeing Derma Rollers available at different beauty or wellness stores, but what are they and how do they work?
Derma Rollers have a little wheel with micro needles on them. These rollers have different sized needles depending on the area of the body being worked on. They increase the blood circulation to help with things like wrinkles, blemishes and cellulite. Additionally, they’re great to use before putting on your facial serums or creams so that they’ll penetrate deeper into the skin.
Come check out our AcuLift Derma Rollers available at Cloud 9- the only roller that is approved by the FDA!
Kelly sees patients on Tuesdays & Thursdays 12p -8pm, Saturdays 10am-3pm in Timonium, and Wednesdays 12:30pm-7:30pm in White Marsh.

Is your age or time spent under the sun starting to show? You are not alone. Many people have concerns over wrinkles, sun spots, blemishes, or sagging skin.

We’ll use certain points to increase blood circulation to the skin which allows for the skin to create more elastin and collagen. Additionally, bringing more nutrients to the skin to help clear up any sun spots, blemishes or acne scars.
