Needling correctly with the derma roller
Microneedling with a derma roller is becoming increasingly popular - not only with beauticians, but at home too: Find out below what positive effects you can achieve for your skin with a derma roller, how to use the derma roller correctly and what you should pay attention to.
FIRM SKIN & FINE PORES
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
A derma roller is a small roller for the skin that is equipped with lot of small needles that are only between 0.25 and 1.5 millimeters long and are made of surgical steel. The length of the needles vary depending on the region of the body and the desired effect. Derma rollers with shorter needles are suitable for the face, as the facial skin is significantly thinner than the skin of the body. The derma roller by Doctor Mi! has a needle length of 0.25 mm. It consists of easy-to-clean stainless-steel needles and has an ergonomic handle for convenient use.
WHAT BENEFITS DOES MICRONEEDLING HAVE?
When using a derma roller, the fine needles cause tiny injuries to the top layer of skin. As a result, the cells are irritated, the blood flow to the tissue is stimulated and skin regeneration is boosted. The cells release growth factors and elastin, which not only heal the skin, but also greatly improve the complexion through the formation of new skin cells.
WHO IS MICRONEEDLING SUITABLE FOR?
Generally, microneedling can be an effective method to reduce scars and wrinkles as well as scale down other unwanted skin structures. In the case of raised scars, inflamed skin, acne, rosacea or sunburn, this treatment should not be used due to the increased risk of inflammation or only used after consultation.
HOW DO I CORRECTLY USE THE DERMA ROLLER?
Correct and hygienic use is particularly important when using a derma roller. Before starting the treatment, your hands must be washed and your skin thoroughly cleaned. Otherwise it can lead to unpleasant inflammation. Divide the face into three parts: forehead, cheeks and chin. Then pull the derma roller gently over the respective area of the face without applying pressure. You should go over your face in star shape. More precisely, you first let the derma roller run vertically, then horizontally and finally diagonally over the skin. It is very important, just like in the preparation process, to rinse the derma roller under hot water after the treatment and let it dry well.
WHY SHOULD I COMBINE MICRONEEDLING WITH CARE PRODUCTS?
Due to the fine injuries on the skin, care products such as high-quality serums or oils can penetrate deeply into the skin's layer, support the skin's regeneration process and stimulate the positive effects of microneedling.
Tip: Perform the treatment in the evening to give your skin enough time to regenerate.
- Disinfect the DERMA ROLLER and clean the area to be treated with CLEAN.
- Optional - apply TONE or TONE.S before use.
- Apply appropriate, functional care products on your skin such as RED, SERUM, DAY, NIGHT.
- Move the DERMA ROLLER in every direction: 4-5 times vertically, horizontally and diagonally in the area to be treated, while maintaining the same speed and pressure.
- If necessary, massage any excess product into the skin with your fingertips.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT VISIBLE RESULTS?
Patience is the key to success here. Results can be expected from the third use of the derma roller. The formation of new collagen takes two to three months, but the patience is worth it: The pores become visibly finer, the skin firmer and plumper. A regular, properly carried out treatment with this beauty product is the only important factor.
