Breakouts, sun exposure, aging – our skin is constantly suffering from changes caused by both internal and external factors that can influence its appearance throughout the years. Our gentle white dermaroller, also known as mesoroller, is here to help prevent those changes by going deeper into the skin layer and allowing better product absorption leading to skin rejuvenation and a healthier look.
This amazing mesoroller device works by creating small, non-invasive holes in the skin with the help of its tiny needles. This doesn’t cause any actual damage to the outer layer of skin; it only creates a controlled skin injury that stimulates the skin’s natural healing response. As a result, new blood vessels start to form, and the skin releases more collagen and substances that stimulate growth. Various researches have shown that when the skin is treated with as little as four microneedling sessions (one month apart), collagen production is increased from 350% to 400%.
Once you’re done using your mesoroller tool, it’s very important to choose the right products that are going to go on your skin. Since one of the main effects of dermarolling is to maximize the absorption and benefits of skincare products, you should make sure that you always apply a moisturizer, toner, or serum after the treatment. If you experience any type of pain or discomfort immediately after the treatment, you should use ice packs on the treated area. And of course, don’t forget to wear sunscreen the following days after the treatment, because the skin is more sensitive than usual.
How to Use
Start by soaking your dermaroller in alcohol solution for 5 – 10 minutes to sterilize it.
After sterilizing, wash the dermaroller with warm water and put it on a clean surface.
Prepare your skin for treatment by cleaning it thoroughly, making sure there isn’t any makeup, oil, or dirt left.
Divide your target area into sections and roll each section vertically and horizontally 5 to 6 times.
When you’re done rolling, rinse the treated area with clean water only, and pat it dry with a clean pad.
Sterilize your mesoroller once again and leave it to dry. After it dries off, put it back in its case.
Frequently Asked Questions
The sensation depends on the size of the needle – the larger the needle you introduce, the more intensely you’re going to feel it. It’s very normal to feel a tingling sensation, but at no point should the treatment feel uncomfortable or painful. That’s why it’s advisable to use a light hand, and remember that there’s no need to press hard into your skin. Don’t worry if you notice a slight feeling of inflammation, as that is actually necessary in order to trigger the healing process!
How often you should use your microneedling device depends on the length of the needles that you’re using. According to that, you can use the device:
- every second day, for 0.25mm needle length
- 1 to 3 times a week, for 0.5mm needle length
- once every 2 weeks, for 1.0mm needle length
- once every 3 to 4 weeks, for 1.5mm needle length
- every 6 weeks, for 2.0mm to 2.5mm needle length
Some of the initial results can be seen immediately after the treatment. The first thing you’re going to notice is that your skin is going to get tighter and a lot smoother. Another immediate result can be reduction of pores. Although these changes will most likely be small in the beginning, they will still be present after the first session, and are going to become more apparent with more sessions. Research shows that people achieve visible improvement in their skin issues within the first few sessions, due to the accelerated collagen production. However, as with any procedure, the body requires some time to give fresh life and strength to the skin, so remember that continued use will deliver the final results.
You can still do your microneedling treatment while you have active acne, but only if you avoid going exactly over them. The needles shouldn’t come in direct contact with the pimple, so it’s advisable to go around the area without touching the inflamed spot. The good news is when your acne heals you can use our microneedling tool to go over the acne scars and speed up their healing process.
Avoid the areas around the eyes and on your lips since they are especially delicate. Never use a microneedling tool on your eyelids.
There are a few products that are not recommended for use immediately after treatment. These products are mainly chemical exfoliates that have active ingredients. It’s advisable to avoid introducing these products and microneedling at the same time, since starting both simultaneously can be too intense for the skin. If you are already using such products, make sure to stop their usage four to five days before microneedling.
The microneedling products that we offer are very high quality. That being said, even an expensive shaving razor isn’t a permanent product and needs to be replaced after some time, and it’s the same with a microneedling tool. If the tool is being regularly used for facial treatments, it will last approximately seven months before the needles lose their sharpness and become ineffective for the skin. If the tool is used for treatments that cover your entire body, it’s advisable to replace it every two to three months. The needles on our products are medical-grade, so they will not wear out as much, but with time and continual use they will become blunt. For a tool to last as much as it should, it’s advisable to handle it with proper care.
