I have pulled up 3 threads that talks about derma rolling around the eye. In sum, you are safest with 0.25-0.5mm needle in length. Make sure you pull the skin down under the eye before you roll to avoid rolling on the bone. I don't know how long or many treatments it will take for those lines to go away. But you can bet on "better result" if you incorporate your derma rolling session(s) with a collagen building skin care regimen that includes, alpha hydroxy acids, retinoid (like Sarah's A-ret
), copper peptide (like Sarah's copper mask
), vitamin C (you can make your own cheaply), and SUNSCREEN! Your effort will end up in ruins if you forget sunscreen. I am not aware of adverse effects on of application of these topicals around the eyes. What is good for the face has to be good for skin around he eye, just be careful when you apply them to avoid contact with the eye. Plus, you're best bet is on derma roller because of the various length availability AND versatility on contouring while you roll. By the way, kudos for posting up picture. People would like to see the issues, too.Thread 1 : Different needle lengths used in mixed rolling schedule Thread 2 : The same roller for collagen boosting on face & neck, and for around eyes and lips? Thread 3 : Dermarolling around the eyes
I found a youtube video demonstrating microneedling around the eye
The woman looks all red. I wonder if she is in pain. Watch out for pressure!
PS: best way to get your answer sometimes is doing a search on the forum to see if your questions have been answer already. However, I don't blame you this time if you cannot find any results when you search "eyes" or "derma rolling under eyes"-- I didn't get any. I had to search the whole forum looking at titles for match and clues. Just saying!
[Update: I think because the eye area is tricky, your best bet for milia removal is at the aesthetician place of dermatologist. Either should have special tool that quickly and painless remove them. But first, you can try for a month or so softening and breaking down the keratin with a gentle daily exfoliant of 1-2% salicylic acid. I am not going to recommend scrub, personally. Don't do that.]
