How to Use A Dermaroller at Home Like a Pro?

Benefit of dermaroller

Gone are the days when dermarolling was done only by dermatologists. Today, you can carry out dermarolling on your own with the right type of dermaroller. Dermarolling is an effective non-invasive way to rejuvenate your skin and breathe back life into your dull skin.

Curious to know more about dermarolling and how to do it the right way? Like always, we are here for you. In this article, we share with you what dermarolling is, the benefits of it, and how to use it in a way that you can reap maximum benefits out of it.

What is dermarolling?

Dermarolling is a process in which you use a sterile dermaroller, which is a skincare device that has small needles on it to reduce your acne scars and improve your skin’s health. The best part about dermarolling is that you can do it from the convenience of your home and it doesn’t require any downtime.

Benefits of a dermaroller

There are a plethora of benefits of a dermaroller. It primarily increases your skin’s collagen production which is responsible for making your face look fresh and supple. It helps to combat early signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines and helps to tighten your skin and help it regain its elasticity.

Did you know that you can also reduce your pore size or sebum production with dermarolling and in turn will help to prevent future acne breakouts?

How to use a dermaroller?

Wondering how to use a dermaroller on your face the correct way at home? Here is a step-by-step guide that will help you make the most of dermarolling.

  1. Before you start the process, it is important that you soak your dermaroller in 70% isopropyl alcohol for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. After this, make sure that you wash your face with a pH-balanced face wash or cleanser.
  3. Apply a numbing cream on your face if you have low pain tolerance. However, make sure that you wipe off the cream before you begin the actual process of dermarolling.
  4. Always work in sections when you are dermarolling and it is best to avoid your eye socket area.
  5. The mantra is to roll your dermaroller in one direction for 3-4 times, adjust and then repeat in another section of your face. Remember to always lift up your roller while rolling to avoid scarring because of the high pressure of the needles, referred to as ‘ tram track’ scarring.
  6. Make sure that after dermarolling you wash your face with just water.
  7. After this, clean your dermaroller with a detergent and follow this step by disinfecting it with 70% isopropyl alcohol for 10 minutes before you store it in a case properly.
  8. After your skin has recovered considerably, you can use makeO skin(formely skinnsi) face sheet masks to soothe your skin as an aftercare step.

Which derma roller should you use?

This depends on your skin issue and what you want your dermaroller to achieve. If you want your dermaroller to reduce your acne scars, get rid of blemishes and reduce your skin pores, then a dermaroller with a needle length of 0.5 to 1.0mm is recommended by most dermatologists.
