How Dermaroller can improve the appearance of your skin*

Now, I've never heard of Dermaroller but when I was asked to publish this post, I did a little research and it seems everybody has an opinion on this treatment so I thought it might be a good little article to publish to see how it goes down with you guys as well. I think that the down points are much like having a tattoo, you always have a risk of infection but keeping the area clean and this minimises by A LOT and it's the same here. What do you think of this? Have a read below.


Are you tired of how your skin is starting to look as you get older? Most people have that frustration. It seems like one day you woke up and your skin was just different, right? Maybe it seems thinner, or maybe you have wrinkles that weren't there before. In any case, Dermaroller might be able to help you, but first you need to know why your skin looks the way it does.

How Skin Damage Occurs Over Time //
Skin damage happens for two main reasons. The first is that certain processes within the body are meant to slow down as we age. As teenagers and young adults our bodies produce more of substances like human growth hormone (HGH) and collagen. Both help to give out skin its smooth, supple appearance. But those levels naturally drop off as we get older.

The other reason for skin damage is environmental influences. That could include anything from chemicals in the daily products we use to smoking cigarettes, getting too much sun exposure, or eating an unhealthy diet. But whatever the reason or combination of reasons is, Dermaroller may be able to improve the appearance of your skin.

A Dermaroller Treatment Encourages Collagen Production //
Dermaroller also goes by the name “micro-needling,” and the reason is obvious. The tool used for the procedure is covered in needles. The needles are extremely small, but there are a lot of them covering the tool, which is designed to be rolled over the skin.

The Dermaroller process encourages collagen production in the body to increase because it causes minor damage to the skin. That damage causes the body to produce and release more healthy components in order to make repairs. Basically, it's a way to trick your body into fixing itself up a bit. Those repairs are especially good for your skin. If you have ever used aesthetic equipment to treat skin problems before, that process should sound familiar to you.

Where to Have the Micro-Needling Therapy //
There are many medical clinics and skincare spas that offer Dermaroller treatment. If you are interested in having it professionally done, you should look for a local clinic or spa that offers the service you want. Make sure that they have a good reputation. You may even be able to get a referral from your own doctor or dermatologist. They are likely to know the best treatment facilities in your local area.

Of course, you can also perform a Dermaroller treatment in your own home. The at-home kits vary in cost, with some being as inexpensive as $30. However, you should know that professional treatments tend to work better, produce faster results, and come with fewer risks.

Dermaroller Risks and Side Effects //
You might think that pain is the biggest side effect of Dermaroller, whether you have a professional or at-home treatment. However, topical anesthetic lotions or gels can be used to numb the area before the procedure starts. So, pain is not as much of an issue as you might think.

The biggest risk associated with Dermaroller is the risk of a skin infection. That risk can be minimized by keeping the area clean before, during, and after treatment. If you have a professional treatment, your technician may also give you a medicated lotion to apply to the area after you go home. Other minor side effects you could experience include temporary bleeding or oozing, as well as a little redness and swelling.

Like most skincare treatments, Dermaroller isn't right for everyone, and a single treatment may not totally fix the problem. So, you will need to weigh all of the risks against the potential results before you choose a final skin treatment plan.
