Dermarolling - Lesser Known Things!

Dermarolling has been a lot in talk for various reasons. For some it is the best cosmetic breakthrough, but on the other hand there are many who fear of the side effects (which may not exist). Here, it is all about this popular method which involves moving a roller filled with hundreds of tiny needles over your face. Read on.

Although it may sound a bit awful to make hundreds of needles over your skin, yet when it comes to the outstanding results, you will love it. Yes, dermarolling is said to have a whole load of benefits. This dermal technique is claimed to help cosmetics penetrate in an efficient manner into your skin. Thus, making them perform their job in right way.

Along this, it is said to be a method which involves poking holes in your skin. The technique then leads to stimulation of the skin, making it repair itself. It causes the production of collagen, elastin and new cells, and all this helps get rid of many skin problems. The problems treated through this method include stretch marks, scars, wrinkles, and many other visible signs of aging.

Let’s explore a little more about this method here…

Digging into the past…

It is not a very old method. This new cosmetic wonder has actually stood the test of time very well. Being under development since 1995, it is said to have its origin investigated to deliver drugs over the skin efficiently. Actually, getting drugs across the skin is not an easy task. Hence, this method adds tiny holes to skin which then allows drugs to temporarily pass though and into a proper circulation.

It has been used since years now to reduce the harsh appearance of scars. Without a doubt, it has proved to be a proper replacement of the older techniques, which are more invasive and damaging to the epidermis, as compared to dermarolling.

What is the science behind it?

Scientifically, dermarolling is referred to percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). It is the basis of this innovative dermal procedure which leads to production of more collagen. To understand the process in better way, learn the three phases of working.

The 3 phase action…

Basically, it is natural healing process. The action is initiated by dermarolling and it works in 3 phases.

Phase 1: This one is inflammatory and it occurs fairly quickly after treatment, when the cells move to the site of damage.

Phase 2: Now in this phase a range of growth factors arrive, making the keratinocytes (skin cells) to start on the repair of the skin and collagen production.

Phase 3: It is said to be the remodeling phase. It might be taking months or up to a whole year to be complete. From replacing the temporary collagen III with stronger collagen I, to tightening of the skin, this phase includes a lot.

So, now keep your eyes peeled for our next article on dermarolling, which will guide you about the process in more details.
