Top Tips on What to Use After Dermarolling

Many are asking about what to use after dermarolling. Since its popularity became widespread, a lot of people have switched to this home-treatment that is proven effective in treating skin problems. According to users, using a derma roller together with their skin care products gave them a new level of confidence because of the impressive results after just a few sessions.

Dermarolling works by stimulating the production of collagen into our bodies. The hundreds or thousands of microneedles that prick on your skin will signal the body to produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that is naturally produced by the body. It is responsible for a healthy and elastic skin, reduces cellulites, eases joint pains, helps build muscle and fat, and aids in healing wounds. However, as we age, the supply of collagen in our bodies declines and we can see some signs of aging particularly in our faces. With the use of a derma roller, problems like wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, acne scars and some injury scars, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and age spots can be treated. What’s more amazing is that it can also reduce cellulites, improve the appearance of stretch marks, give healthy new hair growths and give fuller, plumper lips!

Because of the benefits that one can get from a derma roller, it became a top choice for beauty treatment. It is also used by many celebrities and all busy individuals who can’t keep a commitment to their spa or derma clinics for skin maintenance and treatments. Most of all, it is not as expensive as what you can get from your doctor’s clinic. By following the guidelines, you can achieve a healthier and younger-looking skin in just a few weeks of treatment.

How can Dermarolling Boost Product Absorption?

A derma roller can boost the absorption of your beauty products so it can be more potent and effective. This is what we refer to also as transdermal absorption. During the rolling, the microneedles that prick on your skin create micro injuries that lead to opening up some channels. These channels will allow the skin care products to penetrate into the deep layers of your skin within an hour after your dermarolling session. Normally, when you put on some creams onto your face, it doesn’t reach the deep layers and can just stay on the surface, so more are wasted than being absorbed by the skin. But when you use a derma roller, it increases the efficacy of these skin care products by 3000%!

So, what skin care products work best with dermarolling?

If you are looking for a product that will complement your derma roller treatment, the following are highly suggested topical applications that can boost collagen production:

1. Vitamin C Serum

A serum is a lightweight version of skin moisturizer. Its main function is to deliver moisture and hydration to skin while making the texture bright and glowing. Facial serums are known for its ability to protect the skin from free radicals while it prevents skin allergies and inflammation. To explain further, here’s what it can do for your skin. Called as the “healing vitamin”, having Vitamin C in your serum will help in the recovery of the skin after derma rolling. It helps repair a damaged skin that has been wounded or injured. When you are dermarolling, your skin is more sensitive to sunlight. This vitamin can help prevent age spots, melanin production, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. It also aids in the quick healing of your acne, making it easier to treat the scars and lighten its appearance. Whatever skin type you have, Vitamin C is safe for use. It evens out skin tone and because this helps in boosting collagen, you will get a tighter and firmer skin with lesser visibility of big and oily pores.

2. Vitamin E Serum

Called as the “potent antioxidant”, Vitamin E will restore lost moisture on your skin. It protects your skin tissue from damage and helps in reversing the signs of aging. It can get rid of dark circles around your eyes, rejuvenate and nourish skin, treats stretch marks, lighten scars and is very good for dry and dull skin. It treats chapped and dry lips, making it look naturally soft and moisturized. No wonder this antioxidant is always included in most skin care products because of its numerous benefits.

3. Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Called as the “moisture binder”, Hyaluronic Acid or HA holds the moisture in our skin to keep it hydrated all day. When your skin is hydrated, you don’t get many wrinkles and fine lines and you look younger because your skin doesn’t dry up or flakes. Just like collagen, HA is also found in every tissue of the body, and the more HA your skin has, the more that it can stay beautiful and elastic. Unfortunately, HA supply also decreases as we age so we need to help our skin get more from topical applications. So if you want a supple-looking skin, putting more HA will bind water to retain moisture. The more HA you have, the more it can provide continuous moisture by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water. HA will reduce wrinkles, redness and skin dermatitis.

4. Sunscreen Protection- The second most important skin care product you must have is the sunscreen protection. UV rays can cause sunburn, damage and even skin cancer. The minimum SPF you can use is SPF15 which blocks 93% of UV rays, while an SPF 30 blocks 97% of UV rays. You can go for SPF 50 because it blocks 98% of UV rays. As mentioned earlier, when you are treating your skin with micro needling or dermarolling, your sensitivity to the sun is increased. Never get out of your house without putting a sunblock!

5. Retinol Creams- this is very helpful and effective if you are acne-prone and if you have been suffering from an acne problem for a long time. If you have almost tried acne treatments but do not seem to work, retinol or retinoid will cure it by unclogging pores and preventing dead cells. It also stimulates the production of new skin cells so it can help you treat fine lines and wrinkles, stubborn pimples, or uneven skin tone due to acne scarring.

6. Moisturizers- Moisturizers typically treat skin dryness and prevent it from flaking. There are different moisturizers available and choosing the right one for your skin type will help much when combined with your derma roller session. If for example you have a normal skin type, you can use moisturizers with natural oils; for dry skin, use heavy lotions with HA combination; for oily and acne-prone, use anti-comedogenic and fragrance-free moisturizers.

Combination serums are also available in the market. You can get a serum with a formula of Vitamin C+ Hyaluronic Acid +Vitamin E. Can you Imagine having all these ingredients in just one formula of your serum? With a derma roller therapy, this formula can sink in to the deep layers of your skin. Serums will greatly enhance and make your treatment more effective than just using a derma roller alone.

Benefits of Dermarolling to Skin

Using a derma roller can treat multiple problems without having to do different ways or techniques. It’s an all-in-one treatment using an easy technique that can only take 5-15 minutes of your time. Let’s enumerate the biggest skin problems you can have in every age bracket:

In your twenties. During these years, you are prone to acne inflammation, skin dehydration, and uneven skin tone with rough skin texture. Due to the hormones that play a vital role in your skin issues, your skin can experience breakouts and oiliness/dryness. Regular treatment of a derma roller can help you eliminate these problems.

In your thirties. During these years, your skin can also be in havoc due to hormonal imbalance and a changing lifestyle. You may see that you still experience acne flare-ups probably due to more exposure to stress-related environment and vices like smoking and drinking alcohols. You don’t have much time to exfoliate your skin, and you may be even using the same makeups you’ve used for the last 2 years! You get to see some lines on your face that can be annoying because it makes you look 10 years older- such as those laugh lines, crow’s feet, eye bags, fine wrinkles and your forehead wrinkles that do not seem to straighten up even after putting a lot of moisturizers. You might see stretch marks, cellulites, and those stubborn old scars that you’ve been trying to do away for so long. For some hair thinning or receding hairline becomes a nuisance. All of these can be treated with a derma roller!

In your forties…fifties…and so on… Well, it is for obvious reasons that aging is really happening during these years. Whatever skin issues that you may have had on your 20s and 30s can now be severer in your 40s! Wrinkles go deeper, and more age spots appear. And yes, some can still experience adult acne and scarring. We cannot deny how frustrating these skin problems could be. But, thanks to the dermarolling therapy that can be conveniently used at home and help treat these skin-aging related problems!

How to Use a Derma Roller:

The first step in using a derma roller is to sanitize it by soaking the roller heads in a disinfectant alcohol for 5-10 minutes. This is a MUST since infection can happen with a dirty derma roller. Second, you must cleanse the body part or area that you are going to treat with mild cleansers. Next is, make small sections. If you are going to derma roll your whole face, 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. For each section, complete derma rolling in 4 different directions before you go to another section.

Follow this 4-Direction Technique - derma roll up and down 4 times; then lift the roller and do left and right 4 times; lift again followed by diagonally top right to bottom left 4 times; and lastly diagonally top left to bottom right 4 times. Do the same steps as you go to another direction using the same pressure. Please roll with caution.

What's the Best Derma Roller Size to Use?

A derma roller can be anywhere from 0.2mm to 3.0mm in size. Please be guided that only up to the size of 1.0mm can be used for home treatments. Size 0.5mm is the safest and highly recommended size in treating all of the above mentioned skin problems. It is always very important to follow the allowed frequency of use because over-rolling can cause more damage to skin.
