If you have skin problems such as a scar, stretch marks or those dreaded wrinkles, then I think you might find what I have to say very helpful!
I've only recently heard of this 'skin needling' device and what it can do to rejuvenate your skin. So woth having fine wrinkles, I bought a derma roller to try it out.
What Is The Derma Roller?
Skin needling is an ancient skin needling tool which gently pricks the top layer of your skin, it doesn't hurt and you won't bleed.
It consists of about 190 micro-needles which are approximately 1 millimetre long. You can get different sized needles depending on your skin texture or what the intention of the device is.
For example, if you want to get rid of acne scars then you might need a slightly longer needle so this will penetrate into the scar tissue.
What Do You Mean 'Rejuvenate' The Skin?
You need to get rid of the top layer of your skin, this is called the epidermis. The epidermis will then rejuvenate (renew itself) more quickly than its original 30 days.
I'm sure you've heard the expression 'shedding your skin', well this is what this means. Your old, dead skin cells drop off and are replaced by new skin cells. But if you have wrinkles, stretch marks or scars, the you need to rejuvenate at a deeper level.
This is where the derma roller comes in as it helps to rejuvenate your skin layers at a deeper level and at a faster pace.
What Skin Needling Does For Your Skin
Skin needling pricks the top layer of skin.What this starts is a process where more collagen is produced. What is going on here is that you have now damaged your epidermis, your collagen starts working in overdrive to help replace those damaged skin cells.
If you are following me here, you should realise that by using the derma roller 3/4 times a week, this results in your skin 'renewing' itself 3/4 times a week. Therefore, your wrinkles/scar tissue will eventually be shed and replaced with new plump skin cells.
