Derma rollers cost you anything above 4000/- and look like a medial torture, but what are they exactly? This post will guide you if you are thinking about derma rollers and their benefits for skin.
What is a derma roller?
It is a device with surgical needles all over it producing thousands of microscopic needle holes in the dermis. It looks like the process would be quite painful, but it is not if you follow the correct procedure to use the derma rollers.
How does it work?
Derma rollers work by creating tiny punctures on your skin (hence also called microneedling) to repair cell repair and regeneration. You have to decide the amount of pressure to apply while rolling the derma roller over skin. Usually, it should be moved with light pressure because there are spooky needles present. Beauticians all over the world are using the derma technology as it stimulates collagen production. Derma rollers help to repair the skin and also improve the appearance of scars, blemishes and marks on the face. You can use serums and creams for your skin type with derma rollers for deeper penetration. Before you take the process to the next step, read the book of direction which you usually get at the time of purchase.
How to roll?
You have to run derma rollers in all the directions to cover your face. Start from right to left and top to bottom rolling around with light pressure. Next move it diagonally over lips and don’t keep the needles for too long over your lips. Usually you can continue doing this for 40 minutes, but if you are sensitive to pain you can stop after 15-20 minutes.
If you want to clean your face before you go to an outing, you may do it a night before. After you use derma rollers, your skin looks slightly red and swollen. So it is always advised to use this device a day before so that your skin gets some time to calm down.
As the needles get inside your skin and clean them deeply, these are rollers which should be only used by you. Needling may cause mild bleeding too. So avoid sharing it with anyone to prevent infection.
