THE ROLE of derma rollers – introducing the Ecooking derma roller
What is a derma roller?
A derma roller is a handheld multipurpose relatively non-invasive skin care device. It helps rejuvenate the skin, reduce signs of aging and treat acne scarring. The Ecooking derma roller is manufactured with a system of 540 micro-needles, 0.5mm each, on its mini wheel.
How are derma rollers used and how do they work?
You roll the device over the skin, creating tiny punctures which induce skin repair. The controlled injuries to the skin cause superficial bleeding, triggering the skin to release growth stimulating substances, formation of new blood vessels and the creation of more collagen. The new collagen helps the skin become firmer.
It is important to ensure the derma roller is sterile before use.
Ecooking denotes that their derma roller is to be used for dry acne/acne scars, enlarged/deep pores, reduction of scars after surgery or burns, pigmentation or uneven skin colour, reduction of wrinkles or fine lines, tightening of loose skin, the normalisation of oily skin and rough skin texture. It is rolled on the face, neck and décolleté.
The derma roller should be used at night after the skin has been cleansed. Treating the skin area for area, and rolling with an even, soft touch in various directions will yield the best results.
Does it hurt to use a derma roller?
Depending on your level of pain tolerance, the answer can range from not at all to somewhat painful. Larger needles, of course, are going to be more painful. If it is too painful, it may be best to consult a professional before proceeding with more skin treatment.
When will you be able to see the results?
Collagen takes around two months to grow, so within a month results should be noticeable. However, immediately after use, results can be felt.
