What is the Dermaroller? How to use the dermaroller? Everything that is curious about the dermaroller treatment method, which gives very beneficial results in many problems such as acne, acne scar, hair loss.
what is this dermaroller?
dermaroller; It is a drum shaped rotary device with micro needles on it, sir. something like this. Of course, there is also a more miniature and flat shape called dermastamp. they both serve the same function, they don’t make any difference. use whichever you feel more comfortable with.
how does it work?
Speaking of which you can understand, these needles create micro traumas on the skin and the body sends fibroblast cells to that area in response to increase the collagen tissue. Besides, it also sends growth factors (tgfß1-3, fgf, egf, vegf, tnf-?) to the same area and as a result, your skin becomes more elastic, brighter and smoother. This is for those who want to examine in more detail.
it briefly does this:
As can be seen, the results are enormous. Look, I kicked it all out of Pubmed; I will draw your attention, not from right to left. “more than 80% of patients assessed their treatment as ‘excellent’ on a 10-point scale. no significant adverse effects were noted in any patient.” that is, he said that 80% of the participants rated it as “excellent” and no patients experienced side effects.
what is it used for?
pitted acne scars, hair loss, cellulite, body stretch marks etc. It is used in distressed areas on the skin.
note: never, ever use on keloid, active acne and scarred areas.
how long should i use it?
it all depends on the damage of your skin, the heavier it is, the longer it will last.
Which dermaroller should I use?
Now you are looking at the market, there are figures such as 0.25-0.50-0.75-1.00-1.50-2.00-2.50. these numbers are the lengths of the needles, and a bit to put the business into business. You enter a site where they suggest head-shaking needle lengths, do not ignore them sir.
we choose as follows;
Where will you use it on the skin and how damaged is the area? For example, while the skin in some parts of the skin is thicker, in some parts it is thinner. 1.5 mm was used for this volume to set an example.
My advice to you is definitely do not buy under 1.00mm. Because the short ones cannot create enough trauma on the skin, especially if you are going to use it for the face, 1.5 mm and above will work. If you can afford it, buy the one with 540 needles again, the more needles the better.
And then there are those with titanium needles and steel ones. Again, my advice is to give 3-5 cents more and get one with titanium needles, the body tolerates titanium better.
Can I use it alone at home?
yes, you can use it, you don’t have to spill money for the application. There is no danger. The area you apply the most will bleed and redden.
does it hurt so much
Yes, it may hurt depending on the length of the needle. However, you can reduce the pain to a minimum by using an anestol or such anesthetic cream about half an hour before the dermaroller application.
how much should i use in one session?
my advice until your worst skin bleeds you blush.
what should its frequency be?
for the first 2 weeks, 2 times a week, then week 1. You can reduce it up to once every two weeks later. depending on the improvement in her skin.
Should I use something afterwards?
After the dermaroller application, the absorption of what you will apply increases 2-3-5 times, various studies say different figures, but it is a fact that the absorption increases very, very much. So whatever you run will have a lot of effect, take that into account.
And these micro holes stay open for about 10 minutes and then they start to close slowly, if you are going to use something, you should use it right after.
If used for acne scars, it can be used with TCA. For example, the results here are taken with this. 0.05% retinoic acid was applied after dermaroller and every night and the face was peeled with TCA.
At the time I would only use retinoic acid, retinoic acid is a vitamin A derivative. It is a very important vitamin in the rejuvenation of the skin and increasing its elasticity.
Don’t let those with sensitive skin use what I wrote above. Those with sensitive skin should use vitamin C cream after dermaroller treatment. For example, in the study here, there is a comparison of PRP and vitamin C (with dermaroller), although not as good as PRP, results were obtained close to it.
On the other hand, a research has been made on androgenetic alopecia. The two groups are compared, one with only minoxidil and the other with minoxidil + once a week dermaroller and there is an incredible difference between them.
e.g. 1 week result, participants’ evaluation and hair count
As a result, dermaroller application is a miraculous treatment method. just as after the war the people revealed their wealth and created a new settlement.
