Is derma roller causing side effects? Some people think that just because a derma roller uses needles to treat the skin, then it is painful and fears that their skin would be more damaged. In this article, we will explain and answer common questions about derma roller side effects.
Dermarolling has helped a lot of people in getting back a youthful and healthier skin. It uses a hand held beauty device that is full of microneedles- ranging from size 0.2mm up to 1.0mm for home use, by means of rolling on the skin’s surface with a proper technique. These needles will prick the skin within acceptable depths, causing to form small injuries and opening up channels. The body will act on this since it thinks it should repair the wound. This natural healing process will help in producing massive amounts of collagen which is important in repairing skin damage.
There are larger microneedles sizes like 1.5mm up to 3.0mm, but these derma rollers are not suitable for home use. Due to the risks involved in using these needles, only trained aestheticians and dermatologists can perform this treatment. An anaesthetic is applied on the area especially if 3.0mm will be used because of the pain associated with this length. The effectiveness of this treatment will depend on your commitment to follow the recommended schedule, as well as using the right needle sizes for any specific skin issue.
