What is a DermaRoller?

By Dipakdarji Subscribe to RSS | June 13th 2012 | Views:

The Derma Roller is a device which naturally increases the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. Stretch marks, wrinkles, scars and uneven, pitted skin are all due to a lack of collagen - so by using a DermaRoller to replace the collagen you can help your skin renew itself and repair to a cosmetic level.

The derma roller can be used to help with problems as diverse as stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, hair loss, surgical scar removal and cellulite among others.

A Derma Roller is a simple hand held skin roller which has 192 surgical steel micro-needles which are able to part the pores of the top layer of the skin without damaging it. The pores of the skin close again after about an hour, but during that period your skin is able to absorb skin creams and lotions much more efficiently. This is really a welcome side effect of the dermaroller, as it's main purpose is micro-needling.

Skin micro-needling (otherwise known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Derma Roller is a device which is simple and easy enough to use yourself at home, saving a small fortune in consultant / surgeon fees. Elastin and collagen are described as the building blocks of our skin, and are needed to keep the skin looking soft, supple, and smooth. A deficiency in collagen is the major reason why wrinkles develop, or why scars don't heal as well as we would like.

The derma roller gives very similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but is considerably less invasive (without any of the skin trauma or harsh chemicals) and carries only a fraction of the cost of these other treatments.

Using a DermaRoller is a very simple process and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home in a matter of minutes. Simply roll the derma roller gently over the affected areas as described in the instructions. It is painless, risk free, and, assuming the instructions are adhered to, has no side effects. It uses no chemicals or electricity. The dermaroller is fitted with tiny micro needles which are rolled gently over the skin, without causing any damage, bleeding, bruising or trauma. The fact that the needles penetrate the epidermis (top layer of skin) tricks the body into believing it has suffered damage, triggering the bodies' natural repair mechanisms. This causes a great increase in the natural production of collagen and elastin around the "wound" area in a way no other product can. This collagen is absolutely vital to healthy skin.

Microneedling can be carried out with a Derma Roller on almost any part of the body: the arms, hands, legs, thighs, torso, abdomen, neck, face, cheeks, scalp, even around the eye areas - such as crows feet and frown lines.

One final point of importance, is that although there are different makes and models out there, you should not be fooled by cheap, inferior rollers. Only the premium brands use gamma sterilization, use medical grade materials and are visually inspected for defects.
