All About It
So... what exactly is microneedling? Let us break it down for you. It's a roller with fine needles. Merely rolling it across your skin creates micro-sized puncture wounds in the epidermis (the skin's top layer).
What does this do? The intentional damage initiates the body's natural healing process. This means white blood cells are triggered to come to the punctures while encouraging collagen and elastin production.
The benefits are amazing - minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing acne scars, diminishing scarring and stretch marks, and stimulating blood flow. You can find various dermarollers online or in beauty stores. One key element to remember is to keep your roller sterile and clean. Make sure to sanitize it before and after using it. For a smoother glide, apply a lightweight oil or serum. This also helps to drive these down into the skin.
Be mindful of how often you should be dermarolling, what size to use, and where you buy yours. We recommend a trustworthy retailer. Choose your roller based on your skin type and what part of your body you will use it on. Note: Depending on your skin type, it can take weeks to months to begin seeing results. The results will appear refreshed and even. Fine lines and wrinkles will drastically become less noticable. Scarring will diminish and smooth out. Bonus tip: Consistency is key.
Do not derma roll on susceptible areas such as: eczema, sunburn, psoriasis, or other sensitive places. Doing so may cause a risk of infection or worsen of the condition.
So, are you ready to roll? Heck yes. Cheers to brighter, plumper skin!
