Dermarolling vs. Mesolift and nappage technique

Mesolift is a method of injecting vitamins such as Hyaluronic acid or other substances into the skin and those injections reach a depth of 1 mm into the skin.

Nappage is a form of microneedling where the skin is gently pricked, delivering droplets of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants into the skin. It's essentially the same as "mesolifting".

If you roll your skin with a 0.2, 0.25 or 0.5 mm roller and apply some skin care products, they will be able to penetrate very deeply into your skin and you can achieve the same effects as a mesolift. It depends on the products that you use.  I cannot comment on the efficacy of all the skin care products out there.  Some people find certain products useful and others don't.  Everybody swears by something else. It's very difficult to make an objective judgment. You basically have to try and find what works with your skin.

I can give you some suggestions but without guarantee:




  • Buy a cream with Hyaluronic acid (stretchmark creams often contain it) and roll it into your face or body with a 0.2, 0.25 or 0.5 mm dermaroller.


  • Buy capsules of vit. E, prick the capsule and use it on your skin after rolling.


  • Use (our) homemade vit. C serum frequently.


  • Use our vit. A ointment after rolling or if that is too greasy for you, buy a vit. A cream.


  • Buy Panthenol spray (vit. B5) or cream and use it occasionally on your skin (and hair).




You don't have to use all these products simultaneously or every day. Just apply one of these products when you are in the mood, such as every two to three days.

And every now and then, gently dry brush your skin.

My comments should not be considered medical advice.
