Dermaroller - All You Need To Know

Leave a Comment

Every girl (or guy) wants flawless skin. I know I am in constant battles with different skin care products and regimes trying to find something that really changes the appearance and feel of my skin. 

Something that I have been introduced to lately is a procedure called 'Dermaroller'. 
I was really interested in how this worked after hearing that numerous celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie, were undergoing this procedure for skin 'rejuvenation'.

Intrigued? Well here is everything you may need to know if you are interested or just curious... 

What is Dermaroller?
 It is also sometimes referred to as Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy. Since Dermaroller procedures use small needles to purposely injure skin cells and trick them into making more collagen, it's easy to see why those names are appropriate. A Dermaroller treatment is essentially equivalent to a chemical peel. It just resurfaces the skin using a different method.

Should You Have the Micro-Needling Procedure Done?
Most people can benefit from Micro-Needling procedures, but there are some situations where it might not be right for you. One of those situations is if you have any sort of medical condition that causes thin blood or excessive bleeding. If so, you need to pursue other skincare options.

The other problem that could prevent you from benefiting from Dermaroller medical treatments is if you have recurring skin infections. Although it can sometimes help to lessen the appearance of old scars from acne and skin infections, it won't help if you're still having new outbreaks. So, you will need to get your skin infection under control before you consider Dermaroller as a skincare solution.

What Types of Side Effects Should I Worry About?
Right after the procedure is finished your skin might bleed a little bit. It's important to keep the treated region clean and sterile so that it can heal properly. Otherwise, an infection could set in. You might also find that your skin is red or swollen for about a day after the procedure as well. Other than that, there aren't many side effects, but you may have a little discomfort as the treatment is being performed and soon after it's done.

What Does the Actual Treatment Process Entail?
If you do decide to have this medical treatment procedure done, you should expect the entire process to take around 2 hours. You should arrive for your appointment early in order to fill out any necessary paperwork. Once you are ready, the technician will put a cream designed to numb the area on your skin. That cream has to set for up to an hour before the actual treatment can begin.

As for the treatment itself, the technician will used the hand-held Micro-Needling device for about 20 minutes or so, depending on the size of the area that you want treated. The device has a bunch of tiny needles, which will be lightly rolled over the surface of your skin.

Why Are Dermaroller Treatments So Popular?
One of the things that makes this medical process so popular is that it isn't just a facial treatment. It can actually be done on several parts of your body. Also, it can be performed even on people with darker skin. On top of that, these treatments can be done as many times as you'd like, while other skin treatments are unsafe when done repetitively. So, if you want a safe way to not only treat your skin but also maintain the results on an ongoing basis, this could be just the right option for you.

Although this procedure may not be for everyone, I hope this has at least given you some extra knowledge on the procedures we have out there when it comes to skincare.
