The concept behind dermaroller sessions lies in the body’s remarkable ability to heal itself. When the tiny needles on the dermaroller create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, the body’s natural response is to initiate the healing process. This response includes the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential components for maintaining youthful, smooth, and healthy skin.
The process of a dermaroller session can be summarised as follows:
● Preparation: Before the procedure, the skin is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure comfort during the session and make it virtually painless.
● Needling: The dermaroller is gently rolled over the targeted area. As it rolls, it creates micro-injuries that are virtually invisible to the naked eye. Slight redness can happen after the procedure which usually settles over 24-48 hours.
● Combined with serums or growth factors: Depending on your skin type or skin concern, microneedling is often customized. As micro channels are open upon the use of dermaroller on the skin certain medical grade serums or natural growth factors extracted from blood is infused into the skin to improve various other concerns like pigmentation, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles etc..
● Healing Response: The micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural healing response, prompting the production of collagen and elastin. This process helps to plump the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture. Additional growth factors can help hydrate the skin and improve conditions like blemishes, hyper pigmentation dark spots etc.
● Recovery: After the procedure, there may be some redness, and mild discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn. However, these side effects usually subside within a few days.
● Results: Over time, as collagen and elastin levels increase, the skin becomes more youthful, firmer, hydrated, even toned and radiant. The full results of a dermaroller session may take a few weeks to become apparent. And successive sessions are usually recommended for longer lasting results.
