Derma Roller Before and After Wrinkles Home Treatment

Do you see creases on your face when you smile or frown? Today, you will see dermaroller before and after wrinkles results as we explain and give advice on how to treat it by using the Microneedling therapy. We cannot prevent aging but we can help delay it by supplementing our diet with vitamins, applying topical applications, and using treatments- both medical and home therapies. In this guide, you will learn how Dermarolling can help you treat wrinkles.

What are Wrinkles?

Those small folds, creases and ridges that you see on your face whenever you make facial expressions are what we commonly refer to as Wrinkles. They are also associated with fine lines. The only difference is the depth of the creases.

Fine lines are mild and little while wrinkles are deeper folds.   As people get older, these lines become prominent. However, due to improper lifestyle and daily stress, even young people can develop it at an early age.

Though wrinkles are naturally occurring as one ages, they can give depressions to many, give low self-esteem, and mess up your moods because of this skin problem.  

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles develop when the skin loses its elasticity, becomes dry or thin. When you make different facial expressions, your facial muscles are moving in a way that it forms some folds under the surface of the skin.

When you’re young, these movements just spring back easily because the skin is still flexible. But when you’re old, it is hard to spring back because the skin is becoming less elastic so these lines become permanent.

As we age, our collagen supply decreases which is the reason why skin problems are arising and why fine lines and wrinkles appear sooner than expected for many.

The skin’s ability to regenerate becomes slow and the production of collagen is not sufficient to keep a healthy and younger –looking skin. Due to this, an alternative treatment or skincare regimen is needed to reverse the signs of aging and protect the skin from looking dull and old.

When you are exposed to sunlight, the collagen breaks down in our body, causing the skin to become weaker and to sag. UV rays are harmful so people who are always under the sun can develop more wrinkles and be more prone to skin aging. Collagen is necessary in making skin elastic and wrinkle-free.

Bad lifestyles can cause wrinkles to appear quickly. If you are smoking, the blood supply in the skin decreases so it can age rapidly. Drinking alcohol often dries the skin and loses its moisture, thus, folds develop and emerge. Environmental and genetic factors can also lead to the appearance of wrinkles and can show in the face, neck, back of hands and even arms.

How can Dermaroller Treat Wrinkles?

By dermarolling, your wrinkles can be treated at home.

It uses a beauty tool called a dermaroller that are filled with hundreds or thousands of microneedles. When the microneedles are rolled onto the skin’s surface, it creates micro injuries and channels that would lead up to the natural healing process.

A dermaroller will stimulate the production of NEW collagen so that fresh tissues will be formed. When collagen is produced, the skin that was pricked with these microneedles will regenerate. As a result, you get firmer and tighter skin. These fine lines and wrinkles can be slowly stretched and the more you use this treatment, the closer you get to have a wrinkle-free skin.

Benefits of Dermarolling in Treating Wrinkles at Home

Dermarolling can produce numerous benefits for the treatment of your wrinkles. In fact, it can also address some other skin problems that you have concerning skin aging. Here are the benefits:

  1. Reverse signs of aging. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body which is responsible for giving a young and beautiful skin. It promotes skin elasticity. However, as we age, the body supply decreases. Since dermarolling stimulates the production of collagen, your skin will be glowing and vibrant. Signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, rough and dry skin will be treated.
  2. Boosts the absorption of your skincare products. If you are using topical applications to treat your wrinkles, you can benefit from dermarolling. Most of the skin products that we apply just stay in the surface and cannot penetrate into the deep layers. When you use a dermaroller, the micro channels created during the rolling will allow the products to go deeply into the skin layers to make them more potent.
  3. Smoother and improved skin texture. When you regularly do the treatment, you will notice that your skin condition gets better. If you have scars or open pores, it can all be targeted at the same time you’re treating your wrinkles. You get plumped skin, softer scar tissues so the scars look less visible and will gradually fade in time.
  4. Affordable, yet effective. Going to derma clinics and salon can be very expensive. Some known wrinkles treatment like Fillers and Botox are very expensive and should be repeated every few months. Laser therapies and facelift procedures cannot be afforded by many. Dermabrasion is painful and can cause scabbing, swelling and redness that usually last for 2 weeks. With dermarolling, you can treat your wrinkles at home with just a fraction of the cost of these treatments.
  5. Convenient and no downtime required. It only takes a few minutes to finish one session in the comfort of your home at your most convenient time! You don’t even have to experience downtime because it is almost painless and no burning or peeling or severe reddening can be seen. You can come back to your usual routine a few hours after the treatment so it is recommended to do it before you go to bed.
  6. Safe at-home treatment. Compared to other medical treatments, dermarolling is not invasive. It is low-risk. If you carefully follow the recommendations and proper usage of this beauty tool, you will see that it can gradually treat your wrinkles. Be reminded that at-home treatment only requires the size 0.5mm microneedle. Using longer sizes is NOT advisable as it can create damage to your skin.

How to Use a Dermaroller for Wrinkles Treatment

  • Sanitize and clean your derma roller. You must sanitize your derma roller by soaking it for 5-10minutes using a disinfectant alcohol. Clean the handles by wiping them using a wet cloth with an alcohol.
  • Choose size 0.5mm dermaroller. This is the recommended size when treating your wrinkles. Anything longer than this size will not be safe for home treatment. If you wish to use longer microneedles, please consult your dermatologist.
  • Make small sections. Before you start dermarolling, divide the area into small sections of about a quarter of your palm size. It is always recommended to derma roll section by section to fully cover the desired area to be treated.
  • Use the 4-direction technique. For each section, complete dermarolling in 4 different directions as shown in the diagram below. Then, derma roll up and down 4 times, followed by left and right 4 times, followed by diagonally top right to bottom left 4 times and lastly diagonally top left to bottom right 4 times. After that, you can move on to another section and do the same steps.

IMPORTANT TIP: Always use the same pressure. When rolling the derma roller, the pressure must not be too light or too hard. Do not push deeply onto the skin. Do not drag it when you change into another direction.

 

  • Take extra caution in the eye area. If you want to target wrinkles in your eye area, it is better to look for a small derma roller to avoid hurting or damaging that delicate part. The Rejuviss Advanced Derma Roller System has a roller with 240 Microneedles (0.5mm) designed to be used for hard to reach areas such as on the eyes to reduce fine lines and crow’s feet.

Recommended Schedule of Dermarolling Wrinkles

There are different sizes available for Dermarollers. Small microneedle sizes range from 0.2mm up to 0.5mm, and the longer ones from 1.0mm up to 3.0mm. For home treatment of your wrinkles, we recommend that you use Size 0.5mm.

It requires continuous sessions to get visible results. This is not an overnight miracle for those who want to do away with their fine lines and wrinkles. For your wrinkles treatment, the recommended schedule is once every two weeks.

You can choose any day of the week for your derma rolling session so you can set a fixed day for your treatment. We are encouraging everyone to join our community of women who have committed Thursdays as our Derma Roller day! We call this campaign- #WeRollOnThurs.  

How Long Before I See Visible Results

Results vary from person to person. Not everyone will have the same response on the use of the dermaroller. Results will be based on the accumulated of collagen and elastin per individual. Skin renewal that is triggered by dermarolling usually takes around 30 days to see remarkable results. If you will follow the recommended schedule above, you can see and feel these changes:

After 4 weeks- skin begins to change in texture

After 6 weeks- fine lines are starting to diminish and skin gets a radiant glow

After 10 weeks – skin looks tighter and firmer

After 12 weeks- wrinkles start to become look shallow and reduced

After 14 weeks- deeper lines are gradually fading and overall appearance is improved by almost 70%

  • Continued use will give you a more rejuvenated skin and wrinkles will fade without the use of any fillers. Your skin will look younger and fresher.

Dermaroller Before and After Wrinkles Results

Important Reminders and Precautions:

1. Sharing of your dermaroller is discouraged. You can get infection if you share your dermaroller. It is only for personal use.

2. Dermarollers should be replaced. Dermarollers are not meant for long time use. It is recommended that you replace it after 3-4 uses because the microneedles get dull over several uses and it may not be effective if you continue using it.

3. Always consult with a dermatologist. For any present skin condition like open wounds, active breakouts, inflammation, skin asthma, rosacea, eczema or psoriasis, and blood clotting disease- dermaroller is not recommended. If you also wish to use long microneedle sizes, always consult a dermatologist because longer sizes of needles are only for professional administration.

4. Avoid washing the treated area right away. Allow the skin to recover after dermarolling. This is to avoid inflammation and to allow healing after creating some trauma to the skin during the pricking or rolling. It is recommended to give it a rest for about 12 hours before washing the treated areas.

5. Sanitize your dermaroller BEFORE and AFTER use. Never use a dermaroller that has not been sanitized and never keep it without sanitizing again. There is always a potential of getting infection that’s why this reminder should never be ignored.

6. Take care of your dermaroller. Do not expose your dermaroller in germs by leaving it in open spaces where it can be contaminated. Always make sure you put it back in its storage or container box AFTER using. Never soak your derma roller in a boiling water to avoid breaking and damaging the needles. Do not use a tissue when wiping it because the fibers may get into each microneedle. Just allow it to air dry.

7. Watch out for any damage. If you see that the microneedles have rusts or they are bended and broken, DO NOT use it and immediately discard.

8. Get a high quality derma roller. To ensure efficacy, get a quality dermaroller that are safe and reliable. Getting cheap and low quality derma rollers can produce damage and even painful experience. Their microneedles usually bend and break easily.

What Products Can be Used with a Dermaroller in Treating Wrinkles?

1. Serums - Dermaroller serum is in high demand because it makes the skin brighter and glowing naturally. Using a serum after derma rolling hastens the recovery of your skin and makes the collagen production more enhanced. Since the derma roller boosts the absorption of skin care products, a serum is a good choice because of its vitamins-packed contents and numerous benefits. For the treatment of your wrinkles, this combination is very effective: Vit C + HA + Vit E

Vitamin C- a Vitamin C serum will prevent melanin production to aid in fading hyperpigmentation, acne spots and scars, sunspots or age spots. It evens out your skin tone, makes your skin looking brighter and glowing.

Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water so your skin will be hydrated. HA is responsible for locking in moisture so your skin will not look dull and with enough hydration will keep it looking healthy and plumped.

Vitamin E- Vitamin E protects the cells from damage. It is helpful in boosting collagen to the skin and becomes a very potent antioxidant when combined with other antioxidants like Vitamin C. It will prevent the formation of wrinkles and speeds up cell regeneration to give you a brighter look.

2. Sunscreen- Since wrinkles and fine lines are triggered by direct exposure to sunlight, using a sunscreen with the highest SPF is required. Sun damage can cause the skin to lose its elasticity, firmness, and make it dry. It is always recommended to use sunscreen while on dermaroller treatment to protect your skin from burning and dryness and other harmful effects of the sun.

3. Retinol cream- Retinol stimulates blood flow and collagen production so you’ll get tighter pores. It also improves the texture of the scars by making it softer and less visible. If you are prone to pimples, it will help with everything from acne to dark spots and wrinkles.
