It’s not as scary as it seems, I promise!
Do you struggle with texture, hyper pigmentation or acne scarring? We’ve got just the at-home treatment for you to try out.
If you’ve also been searching for ways to supplement your professional beauty services, save some money and from the comfort of your home, meet your new best friend: micro needling.
The process of micro needling, or dermarolling, is achieved using a dermal roller – essentially a handheld rolling device with miniature needles used to penetrate the skins surface.
Although the tiny needles on the device may appear intimidating to start off with, the rolling mechanism ensures the process is both completely pain free and highly beneficial. The best results we see with micro needling are often associated with trips to a professional as they can use longer needles in their process – but at-home derma rollers can still produce powerful effects if used correctly and combined with the correct potent topical serums and creams.
Some Benefits of Derma Rolling
- smoother skin texture.
- reduced wrinkles and stretch marks.
- reduced acne scarring and skin discoloration.
- enhanced product absorption.
Although the tool is easy to learn how to use, to achieve the best results out of your dermaroller, it’s suggested to find out how to use it in a way that’s best for your skin type and needs. For example, those who suffer from eczema, psoriasis or have a history of blood clots should avoid micro needling all together.
Similarly, people with skin conditions that are of a contagious nature such as active acne or warts that could spread around the skins surface should consult with a healthcare provider before giving it a go. If you’re on Accutane, other prescription medication or sunburnt, you should also be cautious due to the increased sensitivity of your skin.
We always recommend reaching out if you are ever unsure.
On of our favs to start your at-home micro needling journey with is the O COSMEDICS Skin-Inject Dermal Roller.
Utilising 600 sterilised micro needles, the tool seeks to visibly rejuvenate and regenerate the skin’s natural healing response while providing a comfortable and beneficial treatment.
When starting out, it’s recommended to prep and cleanse skin, then roll the device over the face, neck and décolletage area at night before bed. Follow up with your serums and hydrator, preferable one that will benefit your face when it penetrates the skin.
This means steering clear of harsh actives like retinol and vitamin C, and instead opting for hyaluronic acids and richly hydrating formulas which will help lock in moisture and improve the skin’s overall surface.
Now it’s time to get that glow on!!
