New to Derma-Rolling? Here's Everything You Need to Know
You can never be certain how people are going to react when you declare to the world that you really enjoy rolling needles into your face. Fortunately, after telling the tale of how I permanently removed my under-eye bags by way of derma-rolling, the response has been amazing and overwhelmingly positive—and many readers want to get in on the action themselves.
That being said, we’ve gotten many requests for more details on how to try it out at home. Which is totally valid, by the way—when you’re planning on trying something that hardcore, you probably want to know exactly what you’re doing beforehand. I get it!
How does it work?
A derma-roller contains hundreds of tiny needles. When in use, these needles create micro-injuries on the skin, which in turn sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it heals—leaving your complexion tighter and plumper than it was beforehand. This makes it an ideal method for filling in fine lines and wrinkles, thickening and plumping the skin under the eyes (thus diminishing the appearance of dark circles and bags), and even plumping up lips. Micro-needling is also a very effective treatment for acne scars and discoloration since it penetrates the skin so deeply. Plus, when used in conjunction with a serum (as it should be), it boosts ingredient absorption up to 90%.
For a more intense, in-office treatment, many dermatologists use a derma-pen, an electronic micro-needling device that oscillates as it punctures the skin. These treatments often have immediate and dramatic results, but also have side effects like pain or possible bleeding.
Fortunately, at-home derma-rolling is a much thriftier alternative that still gets great results with regular maintenance. It requires a much lower pain threshold, too.
