Benefits of Using A Derma Roller For Micro Needling
While a derma roller might look a little intimidating, it’s actually quite helpful and not painful when used properly. There are many benefits when you follow a consistent derma rolling regimen, which is why it’s one of the hottest skin-health practices today.
Derma Rolling is also known as collagen induction therapy, or CIT. A derma roller is a handheld roller-device with microneedles. Home rollers range in length from .2 to .5mm. You simply roll the device over your skin to create tiny punctures which trigger skin repair, leading to the creation of new collagen.
Collagen is the part of the connective tissue that helps in firmness, strength, suppleness, and elasticity in skin. Therefore, the short-term wounding of the skin triggers the production of a protein that will actually, in turn, strengthen the skin to a healthier level than before.
Derma rolling benefits aren’t just gained in the skin needling and resulting repair of the skin. It is also capable of exposing deeper layers of your skin to the benefits of various products, leading to greater effectiveness. Using a home derma roller can increase product uptake from 10% to up to 70%. Whether you suffer from dry skin, weak skin, scarring or aged-looking skin, it’s hard to imagine a skin ailment that you can’t improve via derma rolling.
Originally, this technique was exclusive to dermatologists, but now that there are at-home versions, it’s important to know exactly how it works. Some of the top benefits of derma rolling include:
Fights Premature Aging
An effective treatment for wrinkles, derma rolling has the capability to prevent and treat premature aging of the skin via triggering of collagen and elastin growth. It thickens, repairs, strengthens and increases the elasticity of skin. Pair this with our Environ Frown Serum for maximum absorption into those fine lines.
A condition in which parts of the skin become darker in color than the surrounding skin, hyperpigmentation is highly noticeable and can make those suffering from it feel self-conscious and insecure. Luckily for those of us unfortunate enough to be dealing with hyperpigmentation, there is derma rolling. By helping to shed the topmost layer of skin that produces melanocyte, derma rolling can diminish the effects of, and help lighten hyperpigmentation. A perfect pairing for this would be our Environ Mela-Fade Serum System.
Reduces Pore Size
Clogged and large pores are not only unattractive, they can lead to great problems such as an increasingly acne-damaged layer of skin, blackheads, oily skin, and more. Often located on the nose and around the cheeks, derma rolling can help to reduce the size of enlarged pores by, again, producing collagen, as well as by thickening the epidermis. Using Environ’s A, C, E oil is a great compliment to this.
