Derma Rollers: The Facts on Salon vs. DIY Treatments

Derma rollers are one of the latest non-negotiable skincare tools that has really grown in popularity here in Australia over the last few years. The reason for this is hardly surprising, as the results of derma rolling include smoother, healthier, plumper looking skin, reducing pore size, fine lines and wrinkles as well as the effects of breakouts or other blemishes. With regular use, you can increase product penetration by up to 90%.

With the increase in interest, derma rollers for home treatment have quickly become commonplace. The convenience and affordability of these devices is hard to deny.

So Exactly What Can Derma Rollers Do For You?

The process behind derma rolling is really quite simple. It’s an innovative treatment that uses tiny needles to create a series of microscopic injuries along the surface of the skin. When these micro-injuries occur, the skin’s inflammatory response is stimulated to go into “repair” mode and release growth factors such as collagen and elastin to combat them.

The increase in production of these factors helps to smooth over wrinkles and blemishes, increase the elasticity of the skin, heal scarring, and boost overall skin tone. The end result is skin that looks smoother, healthier and younger. With this relatively quick and easy treatment you can target everything from the normal signs of ageing to stretch marks, acne scarring and even hair loss, all without serious, invasive surgical procedures.

At the same time, the microscopic injuries caused by derma rolling allow skin products to absorb more deeply and work more intensely than they normally would for more visible and longer lasting results.

What’s not to like, right? Of course, as with most good things, the use of derma rollers is not without its risks and that’s where the real difference between DIY products for home use and professional salon treatments comes in.
