When we think of skincare, we think creams, topical treatments, science, and technology. But have you ever thought of needles helping you achieve the perfect, youthful skin? Yes, you heard us correct, needles! The Microneedling process of rolling up to 200 microneedles on your face to improve collagen and elastin production, and repair your skin.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe method that triggers the regeneration of skin cells, as well as collagen production in a chemical- and laser-free manner. It can also be used to help resurface the skin. The needles are used on the skin to create small tears or punctures on the top layer of your skin. This, in turn, signals the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Rest assured that microneedling allows for a more predictable outcome for skin issues such as wrinkles. Unlike lasers, microneedling is also “color-blind” so that it can be performed on clients of all skin tones without having to worry about skin burns.
Selecting the appropriate derma roller
If you are in the market for a derma roller, it is suggested to go for one with needles that are 0.3 mm or less. With these super-tiny needles, your derma roller can painlessly move across your skin to create the micro punctures. As a result, the skin regenerates itself for a plumper, smoother and firmer surface. Additionally, using a derma roller can help with the healing of scars and minimize the appearance of wrinkles!
The 540 Titanium Needle Derma Roller, an at-home treatment, is virtually pain-free and requires no topical numbing. The extremely fine needles are 0.25 mm in length- perfect for exfoliating and gently penetrating the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The ergonomic design makes it easy to achieve the deep nourishing effects such as skin tightening, treating acne and eczema, healing of scars, and reducing wrinkles.
How to use derma roller in a right way?
However, there is a right way to use the derma roller! Because the roller punctures your skin, it is very important that you sterilize it before and after every use with alcohol or sterilizer. Also, you should never force the roller into your skin, it is enough to just roll it back and forth with very mild pressure. You can also customize your treatment with creams and serums to fix any skin issues you might be having.
The Project E Beauty Hyaluronic Acid Serum is of the highest grade, a perfect complement to the derma roller. A busy life can lead to wrinkles and premature aging of the skin, and this serum, combined with the derma roller, is the perfect antidote. Used after the microneedling treatment, this serum can be absorbed into the skin to help with the healing of scars such as those caused by acne.
Here you have it, the ultimate “step out of summer” skincare routine to achieve healthy, glowing, and youthful looking skin.
