If you've been keeping up with some of the trends in skincare then you've likely heard about dermal rolling. This procedure —modled after ancient acupuncture techniques involves poking the skin with tiny needles. This technique is raved about by skincare enthusiasts and experts for their countless benefits. Some of the benefits include collagen and elastin production, reduced appearance of fine lines, fade acne scars, etc. We here to explain if we think that dermal rollers are worth all the hype.
What is dermal rolling?
Dermal rollers have hundreds of microneedles that surround a rotating cylinder. These microneedles create micro-channels in your face that prompts the body to heal these micro-wounds by releasing collagen and elastin. Because the channels created are so minimally invasive there is no real recovery time.
Who can benefit?
Dermal rolling is can be used for all skin types. Some of the main benefits are skin rejuvenation and tightening, reduced acne scarring, reduced appearance of hyperpigmentation, reduced appearance of enlarged pores, and reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal rolling also promotes better absorption of products, due to the channels created, allowing the products to penetrate your skin layers.
We believe that dermal rollers are one of the best tools for helping improve the overall texture of your skin! Here are some of the results that we've received by using them.
Don’t use the dermal roller over areas that are breaking out. This will only irritate your existing breakout and cause it to spread.
Don’t overuse – this tool should only be used once or twice a week.
Make sure that you sanitize your dermal in 70% isopropyl alcohol after each use.
