Do facial rollers really promote collagen production and enhance product penetration?

Gender: Male / Age: 18 - 29
Dr. Schultz: Any facial roller, even those with needles on them, to some extent, is going to stimulate collagen production and enhance product penetration. That’s one of the reasons that the new cosmetics with roller ball technology for delivery are so effective. One just has to be careful that the tiny needles on the rollers that have them do not cause scratches or break the skin which can then predispose you to infection.

So do the facial rollers have slimming effect for the face?

@Celina: If facial rolling produces deep massaging of the facial fat, then it can temporarily break up fat collections and temporarily improve the appearance of the skin as does the deep massage of endermologie help cellulite.
