How to Use a Dermaroller: How Does it Work?

A Derma roller is a skincare tool that has been widely famous for treating scars. People with acne scars go for this treatment to even out their skin and get rid of all the scars. Dermarolling or Microneedling was first only performed under the dermatologist but now the process has been much more easy and affordable as people have started to use them at the comfort of their home.

With Derma Rollers available in the market at a much affordable rate people have started experimenting more and more and at a much pocket friendly price. The dermaroller treatment when done by a dermat will cost you somewhere around 30-40 thousand but you can easily find the product in the market nowadays. 

Derma rollers have very small and fine needles attached to them, even though it is widely available people should be careful while using it and it can make your scars worse if not used properly. 

Derma roller treatment is expensive and it was found out after intensive research, they became famous back in 2005 when they were invented and people could really see a difference in their skin texture after using them.  

How Does a Dermaroller Works?

Let us now read about how a Derma roller works and if it is the right fit for your skin. 

As we have mentioned earlier, dermaroller consists of fine needles that puncture the skin so if you have scars from acne it will make them smooth. The needles are small and the holes that it will create will be very tiny so it is not an invasive treatment, this process does not actually harm the outer layer of the skin but it works on the layer inside. 

Derma rollers help in puncturing the sca tissue from within, this technique leads to superficial bleeding which alerts the body to heal the wound. 

This process of Derma rollers leads to the following process in the body which helps in healing the scar and making the skin much more smooth. 

  • The skin releases substances that help in stimulating growth
  • Helps in forming new blood vessels in the skin
  • The skin starts to produce more collagen

The next 5 days the body produces collagen that is collected in the affected area and this helps in healing the skin and making it firm. 

How to Use a Dermaroller?

Let us now see how we can use Derma roller at home, it is not a very tough process if you get the hang of it. Do not use Derma roller without reading or knowing enough about it, do your research and see if it will suit your skin or not. 

Here are the steps you need to follow:

  • The first step that you need to follow before you begin your Derma roller journey is to disinfect it. You can use isopropyl alcohol to disinfect it and soak it in for 5-10 minutes.
  • The second step is to cleanse your face, use a gentle pH balanced cleanser to clean your face and provide a smooth base for the roller to work.
  • The third step is not mandatory and may depend from person to person, if you have the tolerance for the roller then you can avoid using a numbing cream but if you don't then we would suggest you to find a mild numbing cream. Apply it on your face before going ahead with the Derma roller.
  • The fourth step if going ahead with the Derma roller, you can divide your face into segments so it is earlier for you to work. Use the Derma roller on each segment at least 6-8 times to make sure you are rolling in one direction. Repeat this step on each section of your face. 
  • The next step is to wash your face with water. Once you are done using a Derma roller do not use any other product right away as it may leave you with a burning sensation.
  • Wash your Derma roller, disinfect it once again and keep it in a safe place.
  • Once your skin has settled down you can continue with your everyday skin care, using serums, oils, cream whatever suits you.
