Will derma rolling tighten loose skin?
Derma RollerFacelift

Im 64, 5ft 6, light olive complexion. I have been up to 45 pounds over weight several times in my adult life. When I was 58 I lost the weight again, only this time I ended up with loose skin around my jawline. Ive been using these face lift tapes attached to a thin piece of elastic behind each ear and you cant tell when using them that my skin is loose. Im wondering if derma rolling will make my face tight again so a lower face lift woudlnt be needed? MY neck is still tight. I also have one semi deep line under each eye,and one line that is very light on my forehead. I dont have any crows feet or bags under my eyes. Will the derma roller take away the lines and tighten my skin? If yes how long aprox. will it take if I were to use it on a regular bases? What size derma roller (needle length) should I buy?

Since there are NO posted photos very hard to advise. Is it possible that derma rolling could tighten skin? Yes but NOT probable. (more)
