Derma Roller

Dermaroller Treatment for Skin Cell Regeneration

The most effective way to eliminate skin problems is to stimulate the production of fresh skin cells. You cannot do that efficiently with a topical cream purchased at your local supermarket, and it is not accomplished with plastic surgery. You need a more substantial procedure that will get into the deeper layers of your skin and allow your skin to tap into its healing mechanisms to regenerate new, fresh cells. One of the non-surgical options on the market today is the derma roller procedure, also known as skin needling.

You can use the derma roller treatment to combat a variety of skin problems, but it is most efficient for increasing collagen production and eliminating scarring caused by severe acne.

How Derma Roller Treatments Work

There are some collagen-stimulating treatments that are virtually painless, but this is not one of them. It is important to trust only a well-trained medical professional who has received the appropriate training to complete this procedure. Your physician will apply an anesthetic cream to the treatment area and wait for your skin to numb before beginning the treatment.

A handheld device is rolled over your skin, producing tiny punctures in your skin. Your medical provider will determine how deep these punctures should be, based on your goals for the procedure. The punctures can go as deep as 2.5mm.

The goal the punctures made by the treatment is stimulation of the body’s natural healing mechanisms through damage to the skin. In attempting to heal and repair itself, your body naturally produces fresh skin cells. The depth of the punctures will determine how deep this regeneration process goes. Some treatments can take longer than others, but most people are finished within an hour.

Once the punctures are made, your medical provider will clean the numbing cream from your skin. Most people can resume their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure without any conspicuous signs that they had a treatment. The tiny punctures close immediately after the procedure, and the regeneration process begins within hours.

What Results Can You Expect from Derma Roller Treatment?

Dermaroller procedures do not deliver immediate results. You should begin to see gradual changes in your skin within a few weeks of treatment. Most patients see the most dramatic improvements in their skin within six weeks of treatment. Each individual’s skin responds differently and that response may depend on the condition of your skin and the type of problem you would like to address.

This procedure is extremely effective for reducing the appearance of acne scarring, but it may not completely eliminate all scarring. You can expect the treatment to significantly lighten scars with time. Discuss the number of treatments required with your medical professional to ensure you select the right treatment and receive the correct number of treatments to maximize results.

The derma roller procedure is effective at stimulating the production of collagen deep within the skin. Your skin naturally produces less collage with age, which is why wrinkles and other signs of ageing start to appear. This treatment forces your skin to rejuvenate itself with fresh skin cells, and to naturally produce more collagen to hold those new skin cells firmly in place.

When used to stimulate collagen production, you can expect to see tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles in the weeks following treatment. While the results are long lasting and satisfying, there are other collagen-stimulating procedures that are less painful than derma roller. You should discuss all of your options with a trained professional to select the treatment that will deliver the best results for your skin in the short and long term.

    My skin has never looked better after having 5 dermapen treatments! Dermapen has left my skin looking and feeling like I am 25 years old again and I am loving it.

    The procedure takes about an hour to complete the treatment; it is a pain free treatment as well. My main skin concerns were breakouts, skin discolourations where now my skin is smoother, tighter and much more youthful looking. I never thought I could make my skin look so good without a laser treatment or skin resurfacing treatment but Dermapen really changed it all for me. My friends have actually asked me “how do you keep your skin looking so nice”, the answer is Dermapen!

    My skin is rejuvenated, tighter, and more bright. It’s radiant, the wrinkles are less visible, it’s just a miracle. It seems to do wonders. I am so grateful that the doctor recommended it to me. At first, I was scared, when he told me about the little needles, so I looked up dermaroller before and after pictures online, read the every possible derma wand review I could find. When I saw the results, I wanted that! Thankfully, I got it! I believe that no derma roller machine at home can do that. I read about that home usage online, and the derma roller instructions they provide are so poor. And they don’t say anything about the after care.
    As far as the treatment itself, it’s wonderful, there’s no treatment out there that can give you all the things in one. The dermaroller did just that for me. Wrinkles and lines – almost invisible, skin – tight and elastic, radiance and glow all around… Amazing!

    I have used a 1.5 mm derma roller on my face. I use the derma needling at home treatment, I found it to be much more convenient than going to a clinic to get it done. The first time I did the derma roller I didn’t notice any results, this could have been cause I went a little gentle on myself. I decided to give it one more try the other week and I made sure I bled this time. Wow, it hurt a lot! After reading from site to site all the derma roller review, reading what doctors and aestheticians were saying about the dermaroller results and they all seem to agree that derma rolling certainly does work. The dermaroller scam that some have mentioned is not true, it’s not a scam at all so don’t be turned off by the “rumours”. Some doctors even argue that the dermaroller results are better than the results you will get from treatments like dermabrasion, chemical peels and even laser resurfacing! I have combined really good moisturiser as part of my new skin care mission to look my best, I also think that will give me the ultimate results I want.

    This was a pretty good derma roller review. I like articles where you can read facts and honesty, not just pitching sales from doctors and clinics. I used the derma roller. I would like to share my experience and give you my derma roller review. I don’t want to sugar coat it for anyone, because it is painful. And it’s the kind of pain you need to put up for weeks before you see any results. I was consistent so I didn’t want to give up with the derma roller treatments when I had started it already, but it was really unpleasant. I would never go for it again. Yes, my skin is kind of tighter and more elastic, because of the younger skin cells, but it really isn’t worth all the pain in my opinion.

    Skin needling has become so popular… And I can see why… If it really demonstrated all these results, than everyone should go for it. I’ve done a couple of beauty treatments myself back in the day, when I was younger, but my days have passed. I’m still a beauty enthusiast, although, I really like to give guidance to my daughter, than to get it myself. The derma needle roller seems like something we had in the old days, but was painful and scary. This seems not to be, because a professional in a supervised environment does it. The new spa derma roller they have these days really seems high tech, and it really comes down to having top-notch equipment, that is sterilized properly and handled properly

    Is the derma roller for stretch marks too? I’ve had my stretch marks since I was 16, and now I’m almost 26. They are on my buttocks and somehow they are so resilient, I can’t get them off! I saw that I can purchase this tool for home usage. Where can I buy the derma roller? And how much is it?

    Sarah says:

    Do you know how to use the derma roller? I believe not! Leave this things to professionals, because it can be dangerous to use it at home without the proper care, sterilization or knowledge of a professional. You don’t know which areas to treat and how to treat them, that’s why doctors do the treatments. I love the dermaroller, but it is quite painful. I can endure it only because it gives great results. The skin really looks much younger, just because it looks more tight. My wrinkles are still present, but I can’t spot them right away. I can spot them when I smile or get angry. They can’t go away for good because they are part of out nature… Anyways, the best derma roller is at the doctor’s office, you believe that, and go for it, no matter if it costs a few pennies more. You will get better results and be satisfied, and you won’t risk your health or your skin. God forbid you puncture your skin deep and you bleed or something. Who knows what can happen if you try it at home! I have had the dermaroller treatment a couple of times now and feel as if I`m experienced but there is still no way I would know how to the derma roller at home and I really respect the doctors that do that because… I would probably just faint at the sight of it..

    If you don’t want to put up with pain then you should have read the derma roller reviews first. Many people share their experiences online and you could have guessed that it is somewhat painful. Possible derma roller side effects aren’t mentioned here, but as someone who has tried it I can say that you can experience swelling, itching and maybe even bruising.

    I have to give it credit for making my wrinkles less visible and the skin tighter. My cheeks don’t look so droopy anymore… That’s the truth, but otherwise… If you don’t handle pain pretty well, you’ll not handle the derma roller.

    Is this the same thing as the micro derma roller? Can I buy a derma roller in Australia? I’ve never heard of it before in my life, this is the first time I heard of it. I don’t mind needles, I like them.

    Ever since I’ve read a derma roller review, I’ve been addicted to finding out more about it. This has been a helpful article, the most helpful I have found so far. The derma roller treatment claims to make your skin more tight, youthful, and to help with wrinkles… But that’s what every cream out there claims. So do laser procedures, ultrasound treatments, wrinkle injections etc. I could name it forever. Although the derma roller doesn’t have any chemicals inserted into the needles, I still fear that there is a great risk of infection especially for people like me, who have sensitive skin that feels every single touch and pain and gets infected by a little speck of dust. I was just curious if a professional could say something more about people who have sensitive skin. I really want to do it, but I have my doubts.

    Milla D`Ville says:

    Yeah, I agree. It’s great for skin faults that are deep inside and where creams and chemical peels can have any effect. Derma roller treatment is effective simply because it stimulates the skin to think healthy on its own and produce new cells that will create the effect you need. I personally expected derma rolling to give me shiny, and glowy skin. Radiant and younger, and I can claim that it did give me something similar to that.

    It is painful, and I won’t lie, but I believe that is exactly why it gave me glowy skin. It looked terrible in the beginning, red and those little punctures were kind of visible. But it does give results.

    Dermaroller pain - OUCH! says:

    Those derma rollers are so painful, Jeez! I thought the derma roller reviews were exaggerated, but you can’t really imagine the extent of the pain. Maybe it’s all individual, but the numbing cream didn’t do anything for me. I can’t imagine how it could have hurt without it! I’m never going to go again, I don’t advise sensitive people to go ever… It will create more damage than benefits! It’s a shame I ever went, it’s really a terrifying experience, that my skin can’t heal from yet…

    This is definitely a great innovation in the skin care regimen of every woman. If you don’t have severe scarring, do this, if you do, maybe a laser would help more, or a face lift, a non-surgical face lift in fact. There are so many options these days, so you just choose the right one for you, with the advice of your doctor! The vampire lift has a good rep, I’ve read and heart so much about it!

    A great derma roller review! Where can you get the treatment? Are there any recommendations for a great doctor or a professional that has done this before? It might sound harsh, but I don’t like to go to the newbies, when it comes to skin treatments. Thanks!

    My dermatologist, that I have been visiting for years and years, and I have full confidence in him, also advised me to try this. Not at home of course, but at his office, where I would get the proper treatment. Skin needling before and after results are good, satisfying at least. It is a bit of a harsh treatment, but compared to laser resurfacing, it could be on the same wavelength, when it comes to pain. Overall, it started showing results only after a few weeks, but they were gradual.

    Mike says:

    I wouldn’t buy derma roller, not even in my dreams! It’s kind of like buying anti-wrinkle injections and injecting it yourself, would it work? No, and you’d probably screw something up, and it would hurt definitely. How much does the derma roller treatment cost, and how many treatments do you actually need?

  17. Vivianne
    Vivianne says:

    I saw in a local chemist that there are derma rollers for sale, is that the same thing? It stated something completely different on the box however. In between all the other claims, it claimed to be a good fighter against fat. Is the derma roller for cellulite? As far as I know, it’s useful for skin tightening, and treating acne scars, similar to laser resurfacing and things like that. But I never heard it in connection with cellulite, that was the first time. Could it be some fraud?

      Luisa says:

      I also saw the derma microneedle roller in the local chemist, and it was really expensive, ouch! The price was sizzling hot! I’m just not confident about using it. I don’t really know how to use derma roller, and if it is even safe applying it alone, or letting someone that isn’t a professional do it. Can you also by a numbing cream at the stores, I’d love to give it a go… If there are any references or instructions to how to use it properly, please shout it out, I don’t want to screw anything up, and I can’t pay the doctor, it’s too much.

  18. Scarred Girl
    Scarred Girl says:

    Are there any other scar treatment except this one? I don’t know, but so far I haven’t read anything too wonderful about it. Only pain, scars, needles, which doesn’t seem appealing to me at all. I use creams for my acne scars every day, but it doesn’t seem to help.

    Jessica says:

    Speaking from someone who had severe acne issues, and scarring that scarred my life, I can tell you that the thing I liked was best derma roller treatment and skin care products. Together those two, made my skin alive again. Everyone has his or her own type of skin therefore; I can’t say get this and this… But what has definitely helped me was a mixture of these harsh treatments and skin products after those, and after about six months you will see great results, or at least slight improvements. Which is better than nothing. The dermaroller treatments are actually quite good, even for the delicate skin, because it was invented to help such people in the first people. People in need, with intensive acne scars, and acne infections should definitely try it, or at least first consult the doctor, because he will advise you whether you are the perfect candidate or not for it!
