Dermarolling is a procedure in which fine needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin. Your health and skincare therapist/somatologist or aesthetician will use a roller, derma-stamp, or an automated pen to puncture the skin and create channels in the skin. This procedure stimulates collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance, tighter skin, and an even distribution of expression lines on your face.
Dermarolling works by stimulating collagen production in the skin. The procedure’s pinpricks cause minor skin injury, and the skin responds by producing new collagen-rich tissue.
The tone and texture of this new skin tissue are more even. Collagen loss is common with age or injury to the skin. Additional collagen may help firm the skin by encouraging the skin to produce new tissue.
This procedure is also the most effective procedure for product penetration; products can easily penetrate the skin due to the channels created on the skin. It can be used on almost any part of the body and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.
Dermarolling has grown in popularity due to its growing list of advantages. It is said to rejuvenate and plump the skin with minimal discomfort and downtime, and it can be tailored to each individual’s needs.
