A derma roller can provide definite and fairly immediate, visible benefits to the area(s) of skin being treated. There are some things a derma roller can accomplish and other things that other aids may be a better fit to do.
Benefits of Derma Rolling
Use of a derma roller can have a very positive and visible impact when used in the right way for the right reasons. In particular, the best derma rolling benefits can be noticed when treating these issues:
Wrinkles – Derma roller can help the skin naturally fill in wrinkles as new collagen and elastin are produced in those areas. Deeper wrinkles will require more treatments. It is not unusual to see results after 3 to 12 treatments depending on the severity of your wrinkles.
Scars – It can stimulate collagen and elastin, which repairs skin irregularities such as scars.
Hair loss – It can stimulate the scalp by stimulating blood flow and producing more of the hormones required to promote hair growth and increase follicle and hair size. It also boosts the absorption and effectiveness of your topical product such as Regaine.
Sun Damage – Because collagen is the skin’s great internal healer, derma rolling works well to rejuvenate and repair sun-damaged skin. It also speeds up recovery by boosting the absorption and efficacy of topical treatment products.
Hyper pigmentation – A derma roller will be most effective for hyper pigmentation if the irregularities are closer to the skin surface. For deeper-layer issues, it may take more sessions of derma rolling to see results. It repairs hyper pigmentation by normalizing pigment cells (Melanocytes), peeling of the skin and increasing the absorption and efficacy of your topical skin lightening products.
Rosacea – It can improve the appearance of rosacea by thickening the epidermis and stimulating collagen growth, thus minimising redness. It improves the delivery and efficacy of active ingredients from your topical treatment products. Important Note: Dermaroller cannot treat and should not be used on “nodular” and “pustular” rosacea.
Stretch marks – By stimulating collagen production in the skin, a derma roller can reduce the prominence of stretch marks, but users shouldn’t expect dramatic results. 3 to 12 treatments are required in order to see visible results.
