Derma roller is an amazing beauty tool for skin regeneration. But we often see our customers asking us or themselves if derma roller treatments have any side effects. In this article we’ll explain what to expect after using derma roller and that there really aren’t any derma roller side effects you should be worried about.
What To Expect After Derma Rolling
Derma roller effectiveness is based on the tiny injuries it causes in skin that triggers skin renewal process. The deeper the needles go, the more they activate the skin internal regeneration.
So this is pretty obvious that the longer the derma roller needles, the longer you may expect there will be visible irritation noticeable on treated skin area.
Skin Redness As One Of Derma Roller Side Effects
It is normal for your skin to be red after needling, with longer needles and more aggressive treatments some redness may occur even the next day. When you look your skin closely, you may notice the small traces of needle punctures on the skin, but there are no visible wounds. From distance it appears similar to sunburn.
Usually your skin tone will normalize in few hours after needling, if not sooner.
If you are planning using a longer needle size like 1.0 or 1.5 mm derma roller, do it on Friday evening, so your skin will be naturally glowing by Monday, with no traces of the needling.
Skin Care After Derma Rolling
You can cover the redness with mineral make-up or a tinted moisturizer. So you can return to normal activities immediately if needed. Also apply good sunscreen before going out. We recommend to avoid direct sun-exposure and tanning beds for a week.
