The procedure of microneedling is the creation of micro-wounds on the skin with a help of a special device- the dermaroller. It is traditionally used for dermatological treatment or treatment for situational problems.
Recently, microneedling has become especially popular and many brands have introdcuced semi-professional dermarollers, which allows doing that procedure not only at professional comsetological salons, but also, in a lighter version, right at home!

The procedure is simple: thin needles penetrate the surface of the skin, disrupting the tissue structure and stimulate blood flow, resulting in a new healthier tissue. The micro wounds also allow a better penetration of skincare products and overall stimulate regenerative processes.
Thin and deep wrinkles: Microneeling can reduce small or deep wrinkles, including forehead lines.
Scar tissue: Microneedling can minimize scar or post acne tissue. Experts note, that scar tissue can be well with 1.5mm needles, while acne should be treated with 1mm needles.
Sun damage and pigmentation: Dermarollers with needles from 1 to 1.5 mm can be used to treat skin damaged by UV rays and prone to seasonal pigmentation.
Moisturizing and nourishing: After using the dermaroller, any product, be it a cream, mask or serum, will penetrate the skin much more effectively. This means that you can see the result much earlier.
HOW TO BEST MICRONEEDLE AT HOME
Clean and optionally slightly exfoliate your skin to increase the skincare absorption even more.
Apply a good layer of serum of choice onto the skin (the serum should contain right active ingredients).
Gently roll the dermaroller over your skin. Do not press too hard and apply just the right amount of pressure that is fine for you.
Once finished, apply another layer of serum.
Disinfect your roller! Let it soak in 70 percent isopropyl alcohol for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Also remember to change your dermaroller regularly (around once a month).
Important: After the procedure, your skin may be red and sensitive, and this is completely normal. Just prepare a good moisturizing cream.
Enjoy taking care of your skin and implement dermaroller into your regular skincare routine (from once a week to once a month depending in the skin reaction).
