Since a person’s face is the most visible part of the body, one needs to be very careful when making a choice for facial treatments. Dermaroller is one such revolutionary skin rejuvenation technique that helps achieve healthier, smoother and younger-looking skin. This skin needling technique is a form of collagen induction therapy and is considered as effective as a fractional laser. This out-patient procedure is painless and is one of the most affordable treatment options. Let us discuss how dermaroller works and the facts associated with it.
How Dermaroller works?
A dermaroller is a mechanical tool or a handpiece that has a rolling drum attached with over hundreds of thin surgical micro-needles of varying lengths. The rolling wheel is rolled up and down several times across the areas to be treated, creating pinpoint punctures into the skin. This, in turn, causes tiny blood vessels below the skin’s surface to break. The blood then clots as a natural response. The skin cells immediately rush to heal this trauma, resulting in new collagen and elastin production throughout the healing process.
There is virtually no pain involved in the dermaroller treatment. You will feel a tickling sensation because of the needles. Your skin may swell and turn a bit reddish for a couple of hours which may feel like mild burning sensation similar to sunburn. However, patients with extremely sensitive skin may need additional pain remedies. As it penetrates only the superficial layer of the skin, the recovery is quite fast. Noticeable results can be seen within a week of the procedure. What is more important is the fact that the restoration and rejuvenation process continues for months post-treatment.
Considering the skin cycle, our skin renews itself every 40 days. Many dermatologists synchronize dermaroller treatment with this cycle to achieve better and more satisfying results. Skin practitioners recommend the treatment sessions to be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks. A healthy skin care regimen along with the routine sessions can yield more positive results.
Device Used for Micro Needling
Coming to the professional microneedling procedure, dermatologists mainly use two basic categories of devices— cord-powered and battery-operated. Both the devices have their own shares of advantages. However, the choice of device to be used for the procedure entirely depends on the personal preference of the aesthetic physician. Apart from this, the devices come with two kinds of needle tip— flat-edged tips and beveled tips having a sloping edge.
While dermarollers with longer needles are mostly used by the professionals, devices with shorter length needles are designed for at-home dermaroller treatment. The devices also vary in diameter and length of the microneedles that generally ranges from 0.5mm to 3mm. However, based on the opinions of dermatologists and client reviews, it is a widely accepted fact that as compared to the 1mm and 2mm needles, 0.5 needles deliver quite promising results in a short period of time.
