Dermarolling Made Simple: Everything You Need to Know

Today, plenty of procedures that were once performed exclusively at the dermatologist’s office can be safely carried out at home. As such, dermarolling presents a more affordable DIY alternative to the scary-sounding professional microneedling technique.

In this article, we cover all the questions you may have about dermarolling to help you get started on the exciting journey to beautiful, rejuvenated skin.

What is a Dermaroller?

A dermaroller presents a small handheld device, which contains a special wheel with medical grade microneedles covering its surface. These needles create microscopic punctures in the skin in order to improve skin texture, induce collagen production, help fade acne scars, and enable better product penetration.

What is Dermarolling or Microneedling?

The terms ”dermarolling,” “microneedling,” and “collagen induction therapy” refer to the procedure that uses a special dermaroller tool to gently puncture the skin so that rough patches smooth over, dark spots fade, and skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin.

How Does Dermarolling Work?

Dermarolling works by creating microscopic punctures or wounds within the skin. As the skin starts to repair, the collagen and elastin production increases, leading to improved skin thickness and firmness, reduced appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and overall facial rejuvenation.

For example, the Microneedle Derma-Roller from ProPlenish contains 540 medical-grade titanium needles with a length of 0.3mm. These tiny needles work to create painless microabrasions in the outer layer of the skin, thus stimulating collagen production and increasing skincare penetration and efficacy.

What is Dermarolling Used For?

Dermarolling can be safely carried out at home to treat a whole range of skin conditions, including:

+ Acne scarring
+ Large pores
+ Stretch marks
+ Loss of skin firmness
+ Fine lines
+ Wrinkles
+ Oily skin

As with any other skincare regimen, when it comes to dermarolling, consistency is key. For example, a 2008 study has shown that four microneedling treatments resulted in a collagen increase of up to 400%. While you may not be able to achieve the same results at home, you can be confident that consistent dermarolling sessions will lead to noticeable results over time.

How Often to Dermaroll?

The frequency of dermarolling depends on the specific tool used and can range from every few days to every 6 weeks. With the Microneedle Derma-Roller from ProPlenish, you can start with having the procedure once per week, and then gradually increase the frequency to two to three times per week.
