What is Microneedling Derma Roller Treatment
Skin needling, also known as microneedling, is a type of treatment in which tiny needles are used to penetrate the skin. These tiny points of contact promote skin cell regeneration and the body’s wound-healing process.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is most typically used to treat the following skin conditions:
- Dull skin: Combat the early symptoms of aging and revitalize dull, weary skin.
- Wrinkles: Since microneedling stimulates the creation of collagen, fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be visibly reduced.
- Pigmentation: may help dark spots fade, including pigmentation induced by aging or sun exposure.
What is a Derma Roller?
An excellent microneedling instrument for promoting skin regeneration in medicine is the derma roller. It has a heavy-duty plastic roller head with tens of thousands of tiny needles all over it. Different rollers have varying numbers of needles. There would be between 90 and 450 needles, each measuring between 0.25 mm (about 0.01 in) and 3 mm (about 0.12 in), in an ideal world.
Is Derma Roller beneficial to the skin?
A derma roller can be used to treat skin conditions including scarring because it encourages the production of elastin and collagen in the skin. The UV radiation from the sun’s abrasive rays might permanently destroy our skin. Derma rollers can help with skin repair by encouraging collagen, which offers our sun-damaged skin a natural boost. Another advantage of this device is the rapid absorption of any topical medication.
The derma roller encourages an increase in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which helps to naturally smooth out wrinkles. Depending on how bad your wrinkles are, it may take some time before you start noticing the results.
- Stretch marks can be made less noticeable with the use of this gadget.
- Another skin problem that might benefit from derma roller use is acne.
How does Microneedling Derma Roller Treatment Work?
Whether you are using a derma roller for facial scars or any other skin issue, the size of the needles will depend on the region to be treated and your skin condition. The needle would be selected based on what each person needed.
The following is a description of how to use a derma roller:
- First, the clean is cleaned, as well as the hands and face washed.
- Depending on the client’s tolerance for discomfort and the size of the needle, a numbing cream can be used for the areas where you will be using the device.
- The device is rolled six to eight times in the same direction in each area to target. Repeat until the entire face has been treated.
- Once done, spin around and start rolling the tool perpendicularly from where you started. Apply the tool with caution to any exposed skin areas.
- Wash the face with plain water. Take extra care to sanitize and clean your derma roller.
Derma Roller Treatment Post Care
- To keep your skin hydrated and avoid any skin dryness, use a moisturizer with a mineral basis.
- Try to wait at least 10 to 14 hours after the procedure before wearing makeup.
- A cosmetics brush should not be used on the treated area as this might cause further skin problems.
- Apply sunscreen as soon as the treatment is over.
- Always wash your face with plain water and a mild cleanser for the next 2 days.
Side Effects of using Derma Roller
- The procedure might irritate delicate skin.
- If you feel pain or bleeding while receiving therapy, do not panic; these are common side effects.
- The most hazardous side effect of using a dirty, unsterilized derma roller is infection. The skin conditions that may be brought on by the bacteria from the device’s previous use would simply exacerbate your issue.
