How to Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles At Home | Derma Rolling Micro Needling
There are a lot of ways on how to reduce fine lines and wrinkles at home. You don’t need to go to a fancy skincare clinic every time, you just need to be resourceful and do the necessary research for the best results.
Let’s talk about one of the best and affordable ways to get your youthful glow back and we are talking about none other than derma rolling. Just what is a dermaroller? Well, let’s all find out!
What is a Dermaroller?
A dermaroller is described as a needling roller device that is handheld. As you might expect, it is the device you roll on your face to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Wait, that sounds painful, right?
Well, not really. A dermaroller works by creating tiny punctures on your skin that lead to eventual skin repair. This is a procedure that actually directs the body to create new collagen. Amino acids then build up in the newly formed collagen and then the connective tissues help in the tightening of your skin as well as helping it getting firm, supple, and elastic.
In short, the process deliberately injures the skin so that in the healing process you get a much better and younger complexion. And, this process (in our biology) is nothing new. The reason why weightlifting is such an effective way to get stronger and better muscles is that it tears your (existing) muscles apart and as it heals it grows new tissues that are stronger.
But you said this wasn’t painful, right? Yes, it isn’t. Derma rollers won’t pierce your skin that deep for you to feel any pain. It sounds pretty harsh but it’s actually pretty gentle. But we do admit that there are instances that experts would use longer needles and that might hurt a little bit if required. But don’t worry, numbing creams are available to alleviate any pain.
How Does it Work?
The first thing that you have to know is the dermarollers come in multiple needle sizes. From the smallest of 0.2mm to the largest at 3.0mm. Now, please be very careful when it comes to using a dermaroller at home.
While we encourage DIY reduction of your fine lines and wrinkles you also need to be aware that anything more than 0.5mm should be done by a professional. Anything below then it should be safe for you to do at home.
Now, how to use it is to just simply roll the device gently onto your skin. It is recommended that you roll over certain spots like 8 to 10 times. There’s no fixed direction of the motion, up, down, or diagonal as long as you don’t overdo it and you get thorough with the strokes then that should be all right.
Take note that as soon as your skin becomes irritated then most likely, you are applying way too much pressure than what is necessary. Try to use a Hyaluronic serum if you want, it’s not recommended but it could better the results.
- Make sure that your hands are washed before you dermaroll.
- Only treat healthy skin areas.
- Always remember to use an SPF every time you finish dermarolling.
- Make sure to clean your dermaroller after every session.
- And always remember to not share your dermaroller with anyone.
We also recommended that you replace your dermaroller after every 30 to 60 days depending on the frequency of your usage. The needles wear out and so that would not be too safe for your skin when it’s overused.
What are the Benefits of Derma Rolling?
Those who have acne scars are the ones who will benefit the most from dermarolling and of course, those who aim to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, and on top of it all, you guys can do it in the comfort of your homes.
It’s a simple process but very efficient and does a lot of good for anyone. Dermarollers are also quite effective when it comes to kissing stretch marks goodbye. Dermarollers are also the go-to handheld and DIY device when it comes to hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tones.
Your face, neck, jawline, platysma, and chest areas are all go-zones when it comes to dermarolling. Dermarollers will also help you out with open, large, and block pores. That’s a lot of function for such a small and affordable device, right?
But please, before you use it on any parts of your body, do the needed research and learn how to use it properly.
Please also take note that after you’ve utilized a dermaroller on your skin it will all be tender. That’s normal and nothing to be afraid of. You’ve essentially just shed some skin layers so give it time to heal for now.
