The derma roller is used for the modern method of naturally increasing collagen and elastin production in the skin through micro-stitching. Therapies using the derma roller are called by various terms: dermarolling, microneedling, microneedle therapy derma roller, needle mesotherapy and microcrackling.
Before, you had to go to the surgeon to enhance your appearance and improve your skin condition. And, well, it would cost you a grand. Now, there’s no need to go under the knife just to get rid of your imperfections and achieve a younger-looking skin. The derma roller is a revolutionary skin care tool designed to reduce acne scars, wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks – and it just costs a tiny fraction of the price that you would have paid for a cosmetic surgeon’s services!
Microneedle therapy with a derma roller is a cost-effective way to enhance the appearance and condition of your skin. It is a safe alternative and effective to costly cosmetic procedures like laser treatments, dermabrasion and chemical peels. The derma roller quickly gained popularity in the USA, Great Britain and the rest of Europe.
How does a derma roller work?
When you use a derma roller on your skin, it deliberately induces a localized inflammation. This reaction causes the epidermis (the skin’s top layer) to encourage the growth of its natural repair mechanisms. The micro-damage as the result of the rolling from the derma roller activates the healing process.
As you roll, the derma roller’s microneedles make tiny channels on your skin’s epidermis. This action triggers the body’s natural ability to produce proteins such as collagen and elastin, allowing the skin to heal and repair itself. Result is skin that is firm, supple, tight and younger-looking.
Microneedle therapy using the derma roller also enables faster and more effective absorption of the applied creams and products into the skin, reaching its deeper layers.
With the right number of uses and breaks (which allow the skin to heal and regenerate), the derma roller will help you in achieving the youthful skin that you’ve always dreamed of. This is something that even the use of the most expensive cosmetic products alone cannot do, as they do not have the ideal permeability to pass through the skin’s epidermis. With the use of the derma roller, absorption of the active substances to the skin will increase by up to 50%, allowing the right amount of nutrients which will help in reversing the aging process.
If used properly and if sterilized before and after the treatment, the derma roller is a cost-effective and safe alternative to the more expensive skin care treatments. While the needles create tiny infiltration holes in the epidermis, they do not cause any damage to it. So far, there have been no reported cases of a derma roller causing serious side effects. Plus, the time of healing after the derma rolling treatment is short.
