November 23, 2021 (IANSlife) The power of a Derma Roller is akin to hundreds of tiny needles penetrating the surface of our skin; this could change the way your skin looks forever. The fact is, derma rollers are the answer to a huge range of skincare concerns you may have been grappling with for a while.
What is a derma roller?
A derma roller, also known as a skin needling device, is nothing but a cylindrical body with a long handle. This cylindrical body is covered with hundreds of little needles that individually prick the surface of the skin, creating what is known as ‘micro-injuries. It is as simple as picking up the handle and rolling the body of the device over the skin.
Does it hurt?
We understand the curiosity of people about what using a derma roller feels like. And let us clear it out that despite the fact that many needles are involved, it’s a lot less painful than you’d think. That’s because the needles are so thin and short that you’ll barely feel it at all. At worst, it can feel like mild sunburn or a little discomfort.
What does it do to your skin?
Superficial needling can be done once in 15 days and deep needling is a must for acne scars and texture correction once a month. For better tone and texture of the skin, continuous use is recommended for at least months.
