Dermaroller - What Is It
Before we explain how and what dermarolling really is, we should explain what a dermaroller is and what it for. A dermaroller is a handheld needling roller device which is rolled on the surface of skin. This is in order to create tiny punctures on the skin which triggers skin repair. This leads to the body making new collagen. By doing this, proteins called amino-acids, build up in the collagen. This is the part of the connective tissue that helps in tightening , firmness, suppleness, and elasticity in skin.
A short-term controlled injury to the skin is the purpose of applying a dermaroller to your skin. The reason why is to trigger the protein in our skin for the production of healthier younger looking complexion. Consider dermarolling your skin to a body workout at the gym. You create a micro injury to your muscles while working out in the gym resulting in muscle repair strengthening and tightening. This is not a direct comparison but I hope you see the picture I am paining.
