A derma roller is a fine stainless-steel instrument which is cylindrical in shape and affixed to a handle for convenient movement. It has hundreds of small needles that make the skin ready for a medicated product to be absorbed. Because the needles allow deep percolation, the skin receives the medication much deeper than any topical application.
The microneedling procedure also does away with pimples and acne by breaking down these bonds that are formed on the peripheral layers of the skin.
Microneedling is done by the surgeon with the help of a derma roller or a derma pen, which works pointedly on sites that need correction – such as under-eye bags, lips etc. It works wonders for skin discoloration, acne scars, and dark circles.
To be safe from skin damage and pain, it is best to use microneedling in a hospital setting, performed by an expert surgeon or dermatologist. When used with such accuracy, it can give skin glow, reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. A surgeon would use an anaesthetic cream for pain minimisation. The procedure itself takes an hour or lesser to complete. Say hello to a new you in a matter of days, after recovery.
