A lot of you might have heard the phrase derma rolling gaining currency in the world of beauty and skincare. In just a short amount of time, it has gained a sizeable fan following. But what exactly is this novel procedure and who is it meant for? Well, here’s a brief introduction to derma rolling.
What is derma rolling? What is involved in the process?
A derma roller is a small device that contains a lot of tiny surgical needles. The device is used to literally needle your skin into reinventing itself. This is done through the creation of thousands of microscopic channels, or cuts on your skin, which forces your skin to form new tissue in a bid to heal itself. Derma rollers come in a variety of needle lengths, so you can use the length best suited to your skin.
Who is it suitable for?
Derma rolling can be used on just about anyone who wants to perfect their skin. But it is particularly recommended for people aged 25 and above. The procedure proves phenomenally effective at removing acne scars, blemishes, stretch marks, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and a wide variety of other imperfections. Jade will be able to advise you about whether your particular skin condition would benefit from derma rolling.
Derma rolling is not recommended for people with skin conditions like raised scars, eczema, active acne and hives, to name a few. Additionally, the procedure is used if you have or are currently using drugs that slow down healing or that thin out your blood.
Pros and Cons
Clients generally find that derma rolling effectively improves the texture and tone of their skin. Additionally, at least on a surface level, the procedure improves the delivery of the active ingredients in your skincare products, meaning that your products will work better. And compared to other methods, it’s cheap, quick and painless. The recovery time and discomfort involved are relatively shorter as well.
However, the effects do tend to vary from person to person. Some individuals might find that it irritates the skin, especially if it is done too frequently or without adequate cleansing. The results also tend to be on the subtle side, so multiple treatments are often necessary i.e. at least a 10-month course in order to see more noticeable changes.
You don’t require any special aftercare if the needles are 0.5mm or shorter. If the needles used are longer, take care to protect yourself from the sun by using suntan lotions. Use a lot of moisturiser on your skin, and avoid wearing makeup for a few days.
