The Dermaroller is one of my favourite beauty aid after glycolic acid. I have been doing this treatment for over a year now on a regular basis and I am extremely happy of the visible result on my face. I am also using this treatment to my clients when required. In this post let us learn more about the benefits of this unique beauty treatment.
What is Dermaroller / Microneedling
It is scary at first look, the roller on its surface has hundreds of needles. You can choose needles of varying thicknesses and the size of the needle can be 0.5mm, 1.0mm or 1.5mm.
Dermaroller can surely benefit anyone who is suffering from a variety of scars including acne scars, surgical scars and even stretch marks. Microneedling has the ability to break up old scar tissues and stimulate collagen and elastin production that is similar to healthy skin.
Not dissimilar to treating wrinkles, derma rolling has the capability to prevent and undo premature aging of the skin via triggering of collagen and elastin growth. By thickening, repairing, strengthening, and upping the elasticity of skin, derma rolling can have an anti-aging effect by giving skin a stronger, more youthful appearance – which is why it is one of the most frequently turned to skin treatments for anti-aging.
A condition in which parts of the skin become darker in color than the surrounding skin, hyperpigmentation is highly noticeable and can make those suffering from it feel self-conscious and insecure. Luckily for those of us unfortunate enough to be dealing with hyperpigmentation, there is derma rolling. By helping to shed the top most layer of skin and produce melanocyte, derma rolling can diminish the effects of and even eliminate hyperpigmentation.
Clogged and enlarged pores are not only unattractive, they can lead to great problems such as an increasingly acne-damaged layer of skin, blackheads, oily skin, and more. Often located on the nose and around the cheeks, derma rolling can help to reduce the size of enlarged pores by, again, producing collagen, as well as by thickening the epidermis.
The poking action from the needle also improves the blood circulation in the skin. It makes the skin glow. The treatment also opens up the pores of the skin to make it more receptive to any product that you apply on it.
I always paired this procedure with good quality collagen gel. I would recommend to do series of sessions for 2 to 3 months to get the best result.
Consultation is advisable before jumping into this skin care treatment.
