What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure that uses a device called a dermaroller or a dermapen that produces micro injuries to the epidermis and dermis. The healing, inflammation and the production of collagen should take place timely for the benefits of microneedling to become evident. Collagenesis, which is the production of collagen peaks at 14 days after procedure. So, we should wait atleast 14 – 30 days after the first microneedling procedure before getting a repeated microneedling treatment.
How Often Can I Dermaroll?
There are many different recommendations for dermarolling frequencies, but to find the most effective one that provides the best results on all skin types with gentle application is difficult. But don’t worry,we have spent a significant amount of time testing the dermaroller to answer your questions.
How often you perform a dermarolling treatment depends largely on needle-length. If you are new to microneedling, you should start with short-needled dermaroller. You can safely use your dermaroller with 0.1mm needles or less, 2-3 times a week. If you are just eager for results, you can use longer needles, but you must wait alteast 4 to 6 weeks before doing the next microneedling procedure. This is because microneedling creates micro wounds in to the skin which must be all healed before the second treatment. Your skin needs time to do the healing that will give it that youthful glow.
How Often Can I Use A 0.5 Dermaroller?
As we previously mentioned, the frequency of microneedling depends entirely on the needle length. Shorter needles sizes can be used more often than a longer needle.
0.5 dermaroller is usually used for hyperpigmentation, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles-usually for anti-aging. If you have any of these skin conditions then this dermaroller is for you. It is popular among people with sensitive and thin skin. Along with the added benefit of boosting skin care product absorption, this dermaroller is famous among people for anyone looking to have multiple treatments on a weekly basis. It can also thicken the skin’s epidermis, so when you apply your favorite products it will absorb quickly. By using this, your skin may bleed a little. You can use it 2 times a week. Because the damage caused by this dermaroller on your skin will be less, so the time required for it to heal will also be less.
Does 0.5 Dermaroller Hurt On The Skin?
That’s a difficult question to answer because pain is subjective and depends on the person’s own pain tolerance. Everyone has a different pain tolerance but mind it when I say that microneedling is not a comfortable pursuit. People that are very sensitive to pain can even feel pain will the most smallest needle size. Whereas people with high pain tolerance can feel no pain, just a minor discomfort when they using a longer needle.
A 0.5 Dermaroller is the smallest needle and is not supposed to cause pain when rolling. It may cause minor discomfort. If you are one of the pain-sensitive people we just described, you can use a numbing cream. Apply your numbing cream before microneedling. Leave it on for 5 minutes and then wipe it off.
