Refreshing Your Skin Using Dermaroller Procedures

No part of your body takes more abuse than your skin. It is exposed to both inside influences, such as what you eat, and outside influences, such as sun damage or pollution. Because it is attack constantly from all sides, it is no wonder that it can lose its luster as it ages. That's why the skincare industry has become so large. Everyone wants to refresh their skin.

As if other influences were not enough, the process of aging itself can also take its toll on the condition of your skin. As protein and hormone production slow down, your cells lose some of their defenses, as well as their repair materials. Among those materials are elastin and collagen. But procedures like Dermaroller treatments can restore and refresh your skin.

The Dermaroller Process and How it Compares to Lasers

The Dermaroller process is a simple one. A hand-held, non-mechanical device with a roller on it is rolled across the skin. Each Dermaroller device has medical-grade needles installed in it. As the roller moves across the skin, the needles create tiny holes through multiple skin layers. The needle sizes determine the intensity and extensiveness of the treatments.

Dermaroller procedures are different from the use of laser-equipment in several ways. First, there are no electronics involved. Second, Dermarollers do not create a lot of heat in the way that lasers do. For that reason, you might be better qualified to have a Dermaroller treatment than a laser procedure, especially if you have oily skin.

How Lasers and Dermarollers Are Similar

Of course, lasers for skincare and Dermarollers are similar in some ways. Namely, both types of procedures are capable of treating similar skin problems, such as wrinkles. Both laser treatments and the needle punctures created by Dermarollers can trigger your body to repair its own skin cells by producing extra collagen and other cell-strengthening materials. Scars and cellulite dimpling can also often be treated by both lasers and Dermaroller devices.

Due to those similarities, you may be wondering why you should choose one over the other. The reason is that your skin color and type can make you a poor candidate for certain procedures. For example, the heat lasers can create can burn your skin if it is excessively oily. On the other hand, if you have a phobia of needles, you may prefer laser treatments.

The Clinical Dermaroller Treatment Experience

If you are considering going to your local clinic to have Dermaroller treatment done then you should know how the experience will work. First, you will most likely be required to book an appointment for a consultation and skin assessment. If you are found, after that appointment, to be a good candidate, your first Dermaroller session will be booked.

A standard Dermaroller session takes between 10 and 30 minutes. However, that time may be more than doubled because you will have to arrive early to fill out paperwork. Then the technician will call you in and apply a numbing serum to your skin. You will have to wait for the numbing cream to take full effect before the actual Dermaroller is used. Another part of the Dermaroller experience to consider is that you will need multiple treatments to keep your skin looking its best. However, those treatments must be scheduled far enough apart for your skin to heal before your next session. Also, you can choose to stop Dermaroller treatments at any time and try other forms of skincare instead.
