Are there discolorations that you’ve been trying to lighten but do not go away?

Have you tried different treatments already but seems like nothing works?

We feel you and we can totally relate! Your skin can look dull with these spots and these patches usually takes long time to heal or cure.

Skin inflammation and too much sun exposure can leave you with dark patches called hyperpigmentation.

But hey, do you know that there’s a best dermaroller for hyperpigmentation? Let’s discuss how you can overcome this skin problem with dermarolling!

What is Hyperpigmentation?

The excess production of Melanin due to an increased level of hormone causes the skin to have spots or patches that looks darker than the surrounding skin.

It can cover small or large areas, and it can happen to any skin type.

There are 3 common types of hyperpigmentation:

  • MelasmaThe common causes of this brown or grey patches in skin are sun exposure, pregnancy hormones, stress, or thyroid disease.

    It can appear on any part of the face or tummy section (that’s why they refer to it as the mask of pregnancy) in large patch or size. Peels or topical creams are used traditionally to cure this.

  • Sun spotsThis is also called as “liver spots’, age spots, or patches caused by UV radiation from the sun.

    These brown or black spots are caused by too much melanin and due to the lack of collagen, these spots become more prominent and harder to remove over time. You can get it on your face and hands.

  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation- The most common type of aftermath of acne.

    A severe bout of acne can leave dark skin patches that are very hard to eliminate and causes deep scarring if not properly treated.

    When you pick on your acne or sunburn, it will leave you with these spots.


Using Dermaroller in Reducing Hyperpigmentation


Dermarolling or Microneedling, is a beauty treatment used to repair skin with scars, fine lines or even hyperpigmentation.

It is proven effective to stimulate new collagen production to regenerate fresh tissues.

As a result, the texture and appearance of the treated skin becomes smoother and lighter over time.

It uses a hand held device called a derma roller that consist of hundreds or thousands of microneedles.

Through dermarolling, you can effectively reduce any type of skin hyperpigmentation.

When a dermaroller is rolled onto the pigmented part, it stimulates the skin to produce new collagen and elastin which will move to the surface of our skin and overtime, replace the pigmented cells with new healthy cells.

As a result, your melasma and sun spots will become lighter and lighter over time.

With continuous derma rolling, the patches or blotches will lighten and tone up.

If you are using a skincare regimen for your skin pigmentation, the derma rolling will also increase the absorption of the topical serums and creams making them more effective.

For optimal absorption of topical serum post derma rolling, apply within 15 minutes after derma rolling.

Dermarolling works best in acne scarring or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

The production of collagen in the scar area of the skin will allow it to regenerate softer tissues so the appearance of the scars will look lighter, smoother, and reduced over time.
