Use Dermaroller, skin type skin concern related

We all have been hearing about Dermarollers past few months but little do we know that it does not suit everyone but recommended as the best tool for few people. Dermrolling is a process in which microneedles penetrate the superficial to deep layers of the skin, creating an inflammatory reaction. This inflammatory reaction then heals the skin. You will find hundreds of blogs explaining about how to use dermaroller and how it penetrates in the skin. But this blog will focus in helping you identify what needle size you require for your skin concern.

Everyone has a unique skin, this is why problems and their solutions vary. Acne and acne scars are also discriminated into mild, moderate and severe. You cannot use low penetrating needle size on skin with severe acne and expect a rapid result. To identify which needle size you require, let’s dig in!

How to use Dermaroller – Do’s and dont’s of dermarolling

Dermarolling or often termed as microneedling is not a rocket science. All you have to do is roll on these fine needles on your skin. Yikes, it hurts right? It sure does but the amount of pain is tolerable. But if you are someone with low pain tolerance, you might need a specialist to perform this on your skin. It stings but it does not hurt your skin. Otherwise, why would it benefit you?

It is recommended to use dermaroller on a wet skin since it eliminates friction and yields greater result. The biggest ‘don’t’ of dermarolling is to NOT INCORPORATE RETINOL WITH DERMAOLLER. Retinol is something you should be very cautious about when using. It also creates intense reaction, introducing dermarolling and retinol all at once won’t be something your skin asked for. Note that, this will not accelerate results but make your skin worst than before. So, be cautious!
