I’ve been rolling my skin for 6 years and it is the treatment where I can tell when I’m faithful with it and when I’m getting lazy. It has helped with acne scaring which was really pronounced for me, as well as fine lines, overall dullness, and even melasma. This photo was one I took before I started rolling my skin, right after kids when my melasma was awful as was my overall skin tone. The second one was taken just now, in natural light, with no filter or editing and zero makeup. It has changed my skin.
There are a lot of rollers out there, but my favorite is from Banish. It’s marketed mainly for acne scaring, but it works on several fronts for overall skin improvement. It’s an effective natural treatment that is easy to incorporate into your existing routine. Here’s a look at what it does.

What is it?
It’s a roller with tiny titanium bristles that poke little micro channels into the skin. It’s also referred to as micro needling or Dermarolling, Banish calls theirs The Banisher.
What Does it Do?
It creates little invisible micro-wounds in the skin which signal the body’s natural healing response to create new skin that heals those little wounds. This is how new, fresh, glowing skin is created. These channels also create better absorption for the serums you use right after which are penetrated right into the skin. You’ll notice improved skin texture and tone as well as firmer skin over time. They call it the ‘poor man’s laser’ because it works just like a laser treatment, except a laser uses light to create the channels.
This is a unique treatment where it works 100% of the time for 100% of the people who use it because it’s basic science.
Who Should Use It?
Anyone who is looking for clearer, smoother, brighter skin. Banish markets to acne and scarred skin, but it’s perfect for literally any skin type. It has been used for decades and does what a laser can to resurface the skin. This is a unique treatment where it works 100% of the time for 100% of the people who use it because it’s basic science.
What Do I Use it With?
It’s designed to be used with The Banish Oil, a pure Vitamin C that improves skin tone. This is an awesome vitamin c with or without the banisher, but is made more powerful by rolling the skin first. Be careful not to use retinol or other harsh actives after rolling which can cause a reaction. I’ve used it with a retinol serum and my skin was red for 2 days. 😂
