What is dermarolling?
Dermarolling is a form of microneedling and collagen inducing therapy.
The process involves rolling a small wheel that has hundreds of tiny sterile needles over the face to gently prick the skin without damaging your skin structure. It helps to break down any scar tissue to boost cell repair.✔️
The micro-needles cause deliberate superficial puncture on the skin to promote new collagen and elastin to be deposited, new capillaries to be formed and new skin cells to be created. A dermaroller is a standard tool for micro-needling.
What is the difference between dermarolling and microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treat superficial acnes. While, microneedling is a newer skin procedure that promote collagen production through handheld device called dermaroller. Dermarollers creates gentle microscopic holes on skin with its small needle thereby removing dead cells and triggering wound healing process for a clearer and radiant even tone skin. This revolutionary skincare tool is easy to use, require minimal setup and can be performed at home or at derma-clinics.
Which is better, microneedling or microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion and microneedling are common skin care treatments for similar skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, scars, acne scars, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, brown spots and hyperpigmentation. They work with different mechanism to improve the skin. Microdermabrasion is generally a more safer procedure because it works at the top layer of your skin and treatment required to performed by an expert. Whereas, microneedling acts just below the skin.
Both microdermabrasion and micro-needling result is smoother, brighter-looking skin. It is suitable for most skin types. Microneedling, however, is different than a superficial Microdermabrasion treatment and provides much more benefit, because it reaches below the skin surface.
Dermarolling results are permanent although consistency is the key.
