If you suffer from acne scars, stretch marks, or prominent facial wrinkles, you probably also suffer from diminished self-esteem. Our self-image plays a large part in how much confidence we have about ourselves. What if you could do something to change that? Would it be worth it to try cosmetic treatments to improve your image? If you are answering yes, then you need to learn about Dermarollers and how they work.
Origins of skincare issues
Many issues with skin conditions actually occur naturally. Anyone with oily skin is prone to breakouts as the oil clogs the pores in the skin, trapping bacteria inside. Puberty causes an increase in hormones which then create more oil on the skin. Too many dead skin cells on the skin’s surface also clog pores and cause breakouts. Ageing will cause wrinkles and sagging skin over time. Other skin conditions are a result of exposure to toxins such as smoking. Overexposing skin to the sun causes premature ageing of the skin. All of these things cause skincare issues.
How Dermarollers work
Dermarollers are designed for use in micro-needling applications. The manual device has a roller on one end that is covered with hundreds of medical grade, tiny needles. It is rolled across the surface of the skin and creates tiny punctures in the skin. These micro injuries stimulate the skin to create collagen and elastins to repair itself. These essential ingredients don’t just repair damage, but also plump the skin and make it tighter. The result is healthy looking skin.
The cost of treatments
If you’ve visited a clinic for treatments before and used cosmetic equipment like lasers to treat your skin issues, then you know how much they can cost. If multiple treatments are necessary, the cost can add up even more. However, Dermarollers don’t cost but a fraction of that amount. Many clinics will even offer price reductions on multiple treatments as a package deal.
What to expect during treatment
When you visit a cosmetic clinic for the first time, plan on arriving early to fill out medical questionnaires or forms. The trained technician doing the procedure can apply a topical anaesthetic or numbing cream to the skin before starting. They will make several passes over the skin with the Dermaroller to guarantee full coverage of the area. To make the procedure even more effective, they will likely apply a collagen or vitamin enhanced serum immediately after using the Dermaroller. The technician will give instructions on how to care for your skin after the procedure.
What the Dermaroller treats
Dermarollers cannot treat every skincare issue, but they do treat many of them.
- Acne scar removal – reduces or removes mild to moderate scars
- Cellulite reduction – smooths the skin to remove or reduce cellulite pockets on arms, rear end, thighs, stomach, and legs.
- Hair loss reduction – can stop hair loss or possibly even restore lost hair when used in conjunction with Minoxidil
- Lines and wrinkles – very effective on facial lines and wrinkles.
- Stretch mark reduction – reduces visible stretch marks
