Dermaroller, Dermaroller, DERMAROLLER! We just cannot get enough of the magic wand that is the dermaroller. We managed to grab Yasmin for a quick video discussing the dermaroller pros and cons. In this blog, we’re going to explore the findings following our chat with Yasmin. For extensive information on the dermaroller,
Yasmin is a specialist in results driven treatments with over 10 years experience in her field.
Yasmin starts by listing the pros and cons that the dermaroller has to offer and they are as follows:
- Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Boost Collagen
- Eliminates Acne Scarring
- Stretch Marks
- Minimise Open Pores and Blocked Pores
After using the dermaroller, our skin is also a lot brighter, a lot firmer and overall has that rejuvenated look.
- We would recommend that you not exercise on the day of using the dermaroller. (This is especially goes for people that apply a lot of pressure while dermarolling.)
- Redness after treatment. After using a dermaroller, your skin can hold some redness the next day.
- Your skin will feel sensitive after treatment.
- We also recommend that you not use active ingredients 5 days before treatment and 5 days after treatment.
You may be asking yourself:
“Why can’t I use active ingredients while carrying out at home micro needling?”
Your body goes into repair mode while carrying out both meaning that they shouldn’t be used together because it’s too much for our skin.
Did you know?
While carrying out at home micro needling, bets practice is to role in a criss-cross pattern. So rolling vertically and then rolling horizontally over the same area. You should map out the area you’re rolling into sections before starting treatment. So, for the face you could start on the forehead and then the cheeks, nose, chin and then neck. Always rolling from right to left. We do this as redness may not be apparent immediately. It is purely to keep track of what areas we have rolled to not go over the same sections twice.
