A derma roller is a skin care device used to help the skin to glow, treat acne scarring, and reduce signs of aging.
Derma-rolling or micro-needling is a process that was originally carried out by a dermatologist. Nowadays, it is accessible, effective, and relatively non-invasive skin treatment that helps the skin to glow more and have a healthy look.
Many people not only use organic products for the skin but also are going towards products like derma-roller to help the skin to glow more.
How does the derma-roller work?
The derma-roller works by rolling over the skin and the tiny, fine needles on the roller puncture the skin gently.
The holes that the needles create in the skin are really tiny. For this reason, the treatment is not seen as invasive and is not painful.
When the skin is punctured, this creates a controlled skin injury to the skin and does not cause actual damage to the outer layer of skin. The needles help to break down scar tissues and help in the removal of acne scars and spots.
Derma-rolling for facial scars and dark spots:
Derma-rolling was originally used by dermatologists as a way of boosting collagen and skin cells production for treating facial scars and skin dark spots.
In addition, it has gained popularity as a home treatment to improve the appearance of the skin and dark spots under the eyes.
Many people use it to try to deal with the signs of aging, such as:
- Loss of skin firmness
- Appearance of fine lines
- Dark skin spots
- Facial scars
Reduces sebum production:
Some people also use it to try to reduce pore size or reduce the production of an oil called sebum if their skin is oily so that’s how it helps the oily skin to control sebum and prevent acne. Others try derma-rollers to try to improve the appearance of stretch marks.
