Derma roller is a medical device based on microneedle technology that stimulates the collagen in the skin, a key component of skin tissue. The micro needles on the derma roller penetrate the skin to start the renewal process. These tiny needles help regenerate skin cells, boost collagen production, and restore skin’s freshness. It is one of the latest cosmetic technologies and is safe and effective in treating skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, blackheads, dark spots, and many others. It is also suitable for all skin types. You may also have dermarollers at home as a part of your skincare routine.

There are different derma roller types, various in the length of the needles or material. The most common derma rolling needles are stainless steel needles and titanium needles. Usually, titanium needles are preferable since they are stronger and more effective. On the other hand, the preference for the length of the needles depends on the skin condition desired to be treated. While longer needles treat deeper layers of the skin, shorter ones treat more of the surface.

Using a Serum With Derma Roller

The best way to get the optimal effect and results from a derma roller treatment is to use serums. Using serums after applying rollers is a great way to get the most out of your serums because the rollers open microchannels on the skin. When the serum is applied after treatment, it passes through these channels, reaches the deep layer of the skin, and is treated at its best. It is necessary to choose a suitable serum for yourself because your skin will be very sensitive after application. The best way to choose serums is to consult a doctor and get a skin evaluation. After evaluating your skin, your doctor can recommend what type of serums you should use.

In any case, it is highly recommended not to use any type of retinol or vitamin C immediately after treatment and to wait 24 to 48 hours as it may irritate the skin after treatment. It is best to use serums rich in hyaluronic acid.
