Derma rolling, a form of micro needling, uses a small wheel covered with hundreds of tiny needles to gently prick the face causing ‘micro-abrasion’ that stimulates wound healing responses. You grow new skin. That, in turn, leads to a smoother, more even, and plumper complexion.
This triggers the body’s wound healing response, and the following occurs:
Over the next 5 days, the collagen produced by the body is deposited in the area of treated skin. This helps the skin to become firmer and may reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
Top benefits of derma rolling outside of the inherently obvious are as follows:
Not dissimilar to treating wrinkles, derma rolling has the capability to prevent and undo premature ageing of the skin via triggering of collagen and elastin growth. Derma rolling can have an anti-aging effect by giving skin a stronger, more youthful appearance. It thickens, repairs, strengthens and increases the elasticity of skin.
A condition in which parts of the skin become darker in colour than the surrounding skin, hyperpigmentation is highly noticeable and can make those suffering from it feel self-conscious and insecure.By helping to shed the topmost layer of skin and produce melanocyte, derma rolling can diminish the effects of, and even eliminate, hyperpigmentation.
Clogged and large pores are not only unattractive, they can lead to great problems such as an increasingly acne-damaged layer of skin, blackheads, oily skin, and more. Often located on the nose and around the cheeks, derma rolling can help to reduce the size of enlarged pores by, again, producing collagen, as well as by thickening the epidermis.
Frequently Asked Question
How long does the procedure take?
It takes about 1-2 hours, first 20 mins for the local an aesthesia to numb the area and remaining an hour plus to administer micro injections into the skin.
Is it painful ?
Numb creams and small gauge needles are used to ensure a pain-free experience.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are relatively fuss-free; mild swelling, redness and point bleeding.
What is the downtime of derma roller ?
Since tiny ‘injuries’/abrasions are caused , the downtime would be around 3-4 days but largely depending on your body’s healing capacity
