What is Derma Rolling? Can anyone do it? A derma roller Is a handheld rolling device covered with microneedles that can range in length from 0.25-1.5mm.
Essentially its hundreds of needles creating micro punctures in the skin which triggers skin repair. Which forces the body to create new collagen.
Collagen is the part of the connective tissue that helps in firmness, strength, suppleness, and elasticity in the skin. Therefore, the short-term wounding of the skin triggers the production of a protein that will actually, in turn, strengthen the skin to a healthier level than before. Think of derma rolling as you would think of weight training and working out. You create small tears in your muscles so that the muscle is repaired and made stronger than before.
The derma rolling benefits aren’t just gained in the needling and resulting repair of the skin. Derma rolling is capable of exposing deeper layers of your skin to the benefits of various topical ointments. Natural oils, serums, treatments, and products increase the effectiveness of rolling. In other words, after derma rolling, your skin will be more susceptible to the effects of anything that comes into contact with it, based on the increased exposure to the vital most layers of the skin.
After derma rolling, skin is generally at least mildly irritated, and just as vulnerable in terms of exposure to skin-harming elements and products. It’s important to never (ever!) try a new skin product after derma rolling. The reality is, we never know exactly how our skin might react to a new product or ingredient, and if the reaction is a negative one, this will only be exacerbated by the skin being freshly needled and exposed.
