If you want to know how you can treat your cellulite with a dermarolling treatment, read until the bottom for complete information and instructions.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition in the fat structure of the body that causes the skin to show a dimpled and lumpy appearance.

It is sometimes described as “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” caused by the build-up of fats underneath the skin that occurs in the thighs, buttocks, arms, hips and abdomen.

Cellulite tends to be more common to women than men. Most women can have it after their puberty stage.

As we age, our skin elasticity is decreased and almost 90% of women get affected with cellulite problem.

Regular exercise and losing weight can help improve the cellulite but will not cure it at all.

When you exercise, muscles become tighter so it can reduce the appearance of cellulite but aging cannot be prevented so the cellulite are still somewhere there and soon you’ll be surprised that it looks more annoying than ever.


What Causes Cellulite to Form?


The top main causes of cellulite formation are hormonal imbalance and genetic formation in our body.

Hormonal Imbalance.
Women have higher levels of estrogen that rises as they age.

The structural element of how connective tissues are made in women is not as tight as that of men so there are more spaces for the fat to lump.

If you gain more weight, it becomes more noticeable. Pregnancy and unhealthy lifestyle can contribute to the formation of cellulite.

If you notice that cellulite is common and runs in your family, then your genes play the biggest role in the development of your cellulite.

You may also notice that some women have cellulite only in their buttocks or thighs but not in other parts like arms or stomach, and likewise.

The amount of cellulite you have is basically based on your genes, body fat percentage and age.


Are there treatments available for cellulite reduction?

There are many ways available on how you can reduce and treat cellulite.


Topical applications can help reduce the visibility of cellulite especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle and dietary recommendation.

Medical procedures such as: Cryolipolysis, Cellfina, Acoustic Wave Therapy, Laser and RF treatments, and Carboxytherapy- are available services from dermatology clinics that can break up the tough bands under the skin to reduce formation of cellulite.

If you are looking for home remedy and safe therapy, then Microneedling /Dermarolling is the best alternative.

It uses a beauty tool called a dermaroller that are filled with hundreds or thousands of microneedles that you roll onto your skin. By using a derma roller, the skin parts where the cellulite are present become less visible.

Clean & Disinfect Derma Rollers. 

You MUST disinfect your derma rollers by soaking them into of 70%-99% rubbing or Isopropyl alcohol for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Check if there are rusts on the micro needles. If you have been using them for a long time, please throw it away and get a new one to avoid infection.

Do not use when microneedles are bended or damaged.

What size Derma Roller for Cellulite?


Dermaroller have different sizes ranging from 0.2mm-3.0mm.

If you will use it as a home treatment, derma roller size 0.5 mm to 1.0 mm is the highly recommended size for its effectiveness to stimulate new collagen and for its safety purposes.

Microneedle sizes of 1.5mm and above are not safe for home use and should only be administered and performed by trained professionals.

(If you want to know more about size 0.5mm dermaroller and its uses, please refer to this article.)

How often to dermaroll cellulite?

Since cellulite are uneven layers of fats in the body, it requires regular sessions to see visible results.

When microneedling cellulite, the skin thickens when it reaches the dermis so the fats will slowly decline from projecting.


For best results, derma rolling once a week is recommended.


Reminders Before Treatment

1. Avoid washing the treated area right away. Allow the skin to recover after dermarolling. This is to avoid inflammation and to allow healing after creating some trauma to the skin during the pricking or rolling.

2. Apply topical skincare products. 
If you have been using anti-cellulite cream, after dermarolling is the best time to put it.

These anti-cellulite creams, when used regularly with dermarolling treatment, will enhance the tightening of the skin and helps in making the cellulite appear less visible.

It is also very important to moisturize your skin and nourish it with Vitamins and other active ingredients to speed up the healing process.

Hyaluronic Acid is a super moisturizer that can hydrate your skin intensely and lock the moisture in for hours. Apply this after derma rolling will help to keep your skin plump and reduce appearance of cellulite over time.


You can also consider Vitamin C and Vitamin E as part of your post-derma rolling care regime. These 2 vitamins are excellent to induce production of new collagen.

Serums that are packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin E are great choices to help even out tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin and makes it more firm.

The Rejuviss Advanced Antioxidant Serum is a botanical formula that combines the goodness of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Green Tea etc to deeply moisturize skin and aid in the production of new collagen.

3. Keep your derma roller.
Clean your dermaroller again by pouring on an alcohol, and then leave it to air dry in its original container for at least 1 hour before you close the storage container.

Do not leave it on your sinks or dresser to avoid germs or bacteria from getting into the microneedles and the roller head.


How does microneedling help cellulite?

  • Boosts the absorption of your anti-cellulite creams. 
    The tiny channels created by the derma rollers allow the skin product to penetrate so the active ingredients go deeper than the surface. As a result, your skin can benefit more on the topical creams you are applying and help in making the cellulite look less visible.

  • Effective, yet simple and low-risk treatment. 
    Compared to other medical treatments, dermarolling is not invasive. If you carefully follow the recommendations and proper usage of this beauty tool, you will see that it can gradually make the appearance of cellulite look better.

  • Not expensive, convenient and safe. 
    If you go to derma clinics for cellulite treatment, the prices are not very practical. With at-home derma roller treatment, you can reduce the appearance of your cellulite with regular use without spending a lot.

  • Firmer, smoother skin tighter skin. 
    Since dermarolling promotes the stimulation of collagen, the skin will be more elastic and avoids sagging. That lumpy and dimpled skin can be stretched and minimized. You can let go of any disfiguring scars and marks with regular use of derma roller.

  • No downtime. 
    Unlike other treatments, you don’t experience a downtime with dermarolling. You can go on with your usual routine after treatment.


Safety Tips and Precautions when using Derma Roller


  • Your derma roller is designed for personal use. For safety purposes, sharing of your derma roller with anyone is highly discouraged.

  • Derma rollers have a short life span. You must replace it after using them for about 3 – 4 times. If for some reason you see that some needles are broken or bended or not rolling, immediately dispose it. You can get an infection or bring damage to your skin if the derma roller is not in good condition or defective.

  • Roll gently. Do not roll forcibly on your skin or it could make more damage. The worst incident that could happen is when the needles break and get stuck in your skin when dermarolling. It will do more harm than good if you do not roll gently.

  • Avoid LONG microneedles. We keep reiterating this to avoid dangers. If you think that long needles are what you need, then skip home treatments and go directly to your dermatologist for professional treatment using these long microneedles.

  • Check your skin condition. If you are treating a skin condition like psoriasis, skin asthma, open wounds, or sunburned skin, then please do not use a derma roller. As for other blood clotting related diseases, please also consult with your dermatologist regarding this treatment.

  • Get a high quality derma roller. To ensure efficacy, get a quality derma roller that can address your cellulite problem. Getting cheap and low quality derma rollers can produce damage and even painful experience. Their microneedles usually bend and break easily.
