Derma rollers- Facts You Must Know

A Lawn requires the regular maintenance for its beautiful look. Consider your face as a lawn which also requires timely makeover to make sure you look stunning whenever you step outside the home. A roller has been designed for that purpose but this will not work on lawn, instead will be working on your face for your beautification. It is called as Dermaroller- an angel of 21st century.

What is dermaroller?

Think of you getting pricked by a sharp needle. It will damage some of your skin’s cells which will not allow them to function properly, so your body will take the charge and will immediately begin replacing them with new, healthy cells. Dermarolling is based on this principle.

It consist of tiny needles which when rolled on your skin created small wounds, thereby giving an alarm to protein present in your body in abundance called collagen, which helps to recover your skin and replace it with a new, healthy and better skin.

Facts on Dermaroller

  • Size of Needle

There are different layers present in the skin. The top layer of the skin is called as epidermis. It is between 0.05 and 0.2mm thick depending upon where it is located. Below epidermis is the dermis, which is between 0.5mm thick and 2 mm thick. Dermis is the layer that you need to reach to stimulate the production of collagen. So, variety of size for the needles is available in the market.

  1. 25mm derma roller: Intended to increase the absorption of your cosmetic products because you need to reach just your epidermis. It won’t cause any pain.
  2. 50mm derma roller: Will help to treat the peripheral damage and can cause some minimum pain.
  3. 75 to 1.00mm derma roller: To get rid of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, this size is ideal for you. It can cause redness and bleeding.
  4. 50 to 3.00mm derma roller: It is a painful and bloody treatment used to treat severe scars and stretch marks.
  • Sharing is not always caring

When bacteria, virus or some other pathogenic microorganism find its way into your body, it defeats your immune system and cause infection. A roller should never be shared with anyone as doing so one can transfer the infections to other. It is always advised to use one dermaroller per person and properly sanitize it after its use.

  • Scar removal

A scar tissue usually has wealth of collagen. But the major difference between the scar tissue and normal skin is that scar collagen is thick and woven with some different pattern than your normal skin’s pattern. The scar’s pattern gets damaged once the scar tissue is crushed and hence the body will regenerate this into a smooth and soft scar which will look far better.

Using Dermaroller on the scar skin will trigger the healing process because according to your body the skin is broken through tiny pricks and will give rise to collagen and the indented scars will fill themselves while the raised scars will become flat giving rise to better looking scar than earlier.

  • Painful or Painless

Dermarolling is neither painful nor painless. The intensity of pain depends entirely on your threshold or the part of your body where dermaroller is being applied. Moreover, the level of pain depends on how much pressure you apply while using it. The sensitive skins are advised to use numbing cream before starting the treatment as it will make the process painless.

  • Products to be used after rolling

The best ingredients that can be used after dermarolling is Vitamin C serum , Vitamin E, hyaluronic acid serum or collagen cream. It will help to boost the production of collagen and heal your skin quickly.

Make sure that you do not use any cosmetics immediately after the treatment because they will go deep into dermis layer of your skin. Wait for at least 24 hours before you go ahead with any makeup or sunscreen application.

  • Acne removal

As per the statistics, there are 60,000,000 Americans who are prone to active acne and there are 20,000,000 Americans whose acne is so bad that they can turn into scars. The total annual spending on the acne treatment in USA is $3,020,000,000. Why not investing a small amount on dermaroller and get some effective result?

Dermarolling benefits the acne by boosting the absorption of topical acne products directly into the treated area. This will help to clear your skin in much efficient manner.

In the busy life, one cannot afford to take out time for appointments for your skin care monthly. But note that the best helping hand is at the end of your sleeve in the form of dermaroller. A little investment and get rid of these appointments for lifetime.
