DermaRoller | Skin Needling
The dermaroller is an incredible device which naturally stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin in your skin. Stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles and uneven, pitted skin are all due to a lack of collagen. By using a dermaroller you keep the collagen levels fresh and the skin can repair and renew itself.
As we age, the body slows down production of collagen. The collagen layer gradually diminishes, which causes the skin that rests upon it to wrinkle and sag. The dermaroller treatment can be performed on any part of the body and has been shown to be very effective at improving stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, and all over skin renewal.
The skin consists of two main layers. The epidermis and the dermis. The dermis has an extremely slow turnover. The half-life of dermal collagen is about fifteen years!
"The dermaroller is a revolutionary breakthrough in skin renewal giving fantastic results with acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles!"
What does this mean? You are born with a certain amount collagen in the dermis.
"The big deal with dermarolling is that you can trick the body to trigger collagen and elastin much sooner than the natural rate of turnover."
The dermaroller needles (1mm+) that reach the dermis causes tiny microinjuries in it and the body sees it as a high priority to fix them. These micro-injuries will trigger new collagen.
Ablative methods, such as acid peels or ablative lasers can’t be used to reach the dermis due to the risk of scarring and hypopigmentation. But a dermaroller very easily can go that deep, because it does not ablate the skin, it only pricks it. Since the pricks are surrounded by untreated skin, the regeneration happens very quickly.
The dermaroller speeds up the dermal proteins (collagen and elastin) in the dermis and this can slow down the signs of skin ageing.
"The Dermaroller is more effective than Laser and Surgery for Scar Reduction, Stretch Mark Removal and Wrinkle Elimination!'"
Dermarollers have become increasingly popular over the last decade, and many women and men use dermarollers for all sorts of skin related problems such as:
The dermaroller's benefits can be reaped for years to come as far as anti-ageing is concerned. As well as increasing the absorption and efficacy of your anti-ageing skin care products, with continued use the stimulation of cells will also result in a faster renewal cycle of the epidermis and stimulate new collagen production. This will increase the thickness of the uppermost layer of the epidermis, improve the skin’s integrity and leave it looking plumper and younger with a healthy glow.
How Exactly Does the Dermaroller Work?
As you roll the dermaroller over your skin, it creates pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. The human body reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will only heal as far as it must to keep you healthy – which is different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering the healing process, you encourage your body to continue healing until the job is finished.
This process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each dermaroller treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within 2-4 weeks! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.
Celebrities like Angelina Jolie is reported to have tried dermaroller therapy after being introduced to it by husband Brad Pitt, who is himself thought to have undergone a series of treatments to combat acne scars. Others like Jennifer Aniston reportedly uses the dermaroller treatment to give herself a fresh faced, natural look.
Beware of cheap 540 "needle" versions (seen in the image below on the left). It is not suitable for the skin and may cause damage. The needles are not needles at all, but stamped discs in the shape of tiny knives. There is a reason the technique is called “micro-needling” and not “micro-slicing” or “micro-cutting”. We do not recommend these type of “needles”. There simply are no clinical results available for this type of roller. The manufacturer in our opinion wanted to launch a “special” dermaroller and did that by offering more “needles”. However that would be expensive and impractical, construction-wise, so they created an entire row of “needles” by stamping discs that creates miniature knives - not needles.
