As dermatologists succeed in providing you with various options to treat skin care issues, they incorporate methods that re ideal for all skin types.

The Leading Skin Care Product
A cost effective solution to treat areas of the face, neck, and scalp, Derma Rollers have come to be one of the leading skin care products. These needle-fitted, hand-held barrels roll over your skin to create microscopic holes within your skin. The needle sets vary in quantity and length to provide you with options in peeling treatments.
Derma Rolling Needle Set
The quality of needles is most important as they determine the quality of the Derma Rolling Treatments. A quality Needle set will provide superior results; meanwhile, a poorly maintained set will only damage the skin further. Here are some things to look out for in a quality Derma Roller needle set.
- Your needle set should be sharp! They may come in lengths as small as .05mm to as long as 2.0mm. The longer the needle the deeper the peel/ while this treatment can be done at home, needle sets longer than 1.5mm should be left to professionals.
- Your needles set may come with as few as 200 or as many as 450. The more needles used in your treatment the easier it is to achieve your ideal results with minimal discomfort.
Advantages of Derma Roller Treatments
This deep peeling treatment is used to encourage blood flow in certain areas. This is to increase the production of collagen in some cases, where you might simply want firmer skin. In other cases, it may be used to increase stimuli such as hair growth or remove damaged skin from acne scarring. The desired outcome is the removal of damaged skin and the appearance of healthier skin after healing process.
You may be interested in this non-invasive method if you have sensitive skin or low tolerance for discomfort and find that options like cosmetic laser surgery is not for you. It can be used to treat early signs of aging such as wrinkles and slightly sagging skin. It can also help to correct sun damage and discoloring of the skin.
In more recent cases, individuals use derma roller treatments to enhance their current skin care routine. It helps the skin to better absorb skin care products with microscopic puncture marks which keep the pores open.
Disadvantages and Risks
While derma rolling treatments are substantially safer and more suitable for varying skin types than plastic or cosmetic laser treatments, there may still be some risks and disadvantages associated with this treatment. It is intended to be a far less painful alternative, especially during the healing process. Still, after your treatment, there may be some reddening and a slight rash or irritation to creams and other lotions applied to the skin.
Other risks may include some bleeding; however, this is normal if proper pressure has been applied. With in-home kits, pressure can be the greatest issue and will cause results to vary greatly. Too rough with your application and you risk further damage to your skin, too soft and you have failed to complete the process correctly.

Performing Your In-Home Derma Roller Treatment
If you’re performing an in-home derma rolling kit, you want to be sure to follow the same protocol as a dermatologist. This way you can ensure that you will achieve maximum results with your deep peeling treatment. Here is a basic guide to performing your in-home derma rolling treatment in Four Steps.
- Before you can begin, you have to remove any impurities from your skin. Wash thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap and dry with a soft towel.
- Those with sensitive skin may want to take this time to apply numbing cream. Allow it to sit for several minutes or until it has taken affect and rinse well again with anti-bacterial soap.
- Taking your Derma Roller over your skin in a criss cross motion, apply needed pressure to treated areas. As you move on to new areas lift and place roller, as oppose to dragging it across the skin.
- When you have completed the treatment, rinse the skin once more with cleanser and pat dry. Finish your deep peeling treatment with the application of your Vitamin C serum. The use of coconut oil and other moisturizers is optional; however, their use may be the most vital as your skin will feel dry after frequent washing.
The use of your derma roller will depend on the issue being treated; however, dermatologists suggest that it can be performed at least once or twice a week without doing damage to the skin. While this is frequent application is not needed and you will still have to account for proper healing time between applications. It is recommended that you wait at least 40 days for exceptionally deep peeling treatments.
You also want to account for the length of the application process itself. With derma rollers there is no standard time limit as with chemical peels and laser procedures. Depending upon the pressure applied, the rate it takes you to properly complete an area such as the calves or inner thighs is considered a complete application. Derma Rolling allows for multiple treatments in one application period.
