If you haven't heard by now, derma rolling is taking the beauty world by storm, especially home needling. If you have been wondering about how to get started, this will be a good read for you. If you are just finding out about micro needling, this will also be very informative for you.
OK SO WHAT IS MICRO-NEEDLING (DERMA-ROLLING)?
Micro-needling, also know as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a treatment that includes using a handheld device that uses microscopic needles to puncture the skin. Even though that seems alarming at first, you will find out soon that this is genius! The reason behind this treatment is simply science.
When a derma-roller is used properly, the brain is alerted that these microscopic incisions ("wounds") need to be fixed. So your body then rushes fibroblasts to the area to create skin building ingredients like elastin and collagen. Micro-needling is used for all sorts of ailments and preventative procedures.
For example, micro-needling
- Reduces fine line and wrinkles
- Improves scars (hyperpigmentation)
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
- Fixes hair loss and receding hair lines
- Reduces rosacea
- Reduces cellulite
- Tattoo removal
- Lip texture and lip plumpness
- Improves acne prone skin and may reduce breakouts
- Improves product absorption
- Smoothe's skin and rebuilds the skin with cell turnover
As you can see, the benefits are endless, and now you can understand why people are obsessing over derma rolling.
HOWEVER!!! This is still a treatment that requires educated treatment options. When selecting your derma-roller make sure you are selecting a high quality dermaroller. To do this, look for a needler with titanium needles. NEVER go bigger than .5 in length for the face for home use, and see a medical practitioner if you require a deeper needle. Also, the best roller to choose is one with staggered rows and ideally with 540 needles or more.
DO NOT roll over ACTIVE ACNE. You can worsen your acne by spreading the bacteria all over your face, thus causing more breakouts. (NOOOO!!!)
ALSO, DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT AND/OR BREASTFEEDING!!! This treatment will take away nutrients from the baby and cause you to be extremely fatigue. It can even stop milk production!
