One of the most often asked question we at Derma Roller Shop hear is that how often should the derma roller be used. We try to make it pretty simple for you to decide how often to use a dermaroller based on what needle length derma roller you are using. Read more to find out exactly how often to use a dermaroller.
Natural Skin Cell Renewal Takes Time
Needling your skin too often, will not give you better results. Why not? Think about it, similarly like when you cut your finger, it takes time to heal. The tiny wounds created by the derma roller during skin needling also need time to heal and build collagen. Even when they are so much smaller than a knife cut, there is still time needed for your body to go through natural skin healing process.
Skin renewal & new collagen building continues for about 40 days after needling, this is also the main period to keep in mind when deciding how often to use a dermaroller.
Dermarolling treatments frequency based on dermaroller needle size
0.2-0.25 mm dermaroller may be used daily or every other day. This size improves the absorption of applied skin care products.
0.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 3 weeks.
0.75 mm dermaroller may be used once every 4 weeks.
1.0 mm dermaroller may be used once a month (every 5-6 weeks).,
1.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 6 weeks.
2.0-2.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 8 weeks.
0.2 -0.25 mm Derma Rollers for Daily Use
You may use the 0.2 and 0.25 mm needle lengths daily for better skin care products absorption. These short needles will not promote new collagen building, but will help you benefit more from your skin care by helping them to absorb better.
0.5 – 2.5 mm Derma Rollers for Triggering Collagen Production
Do you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, acne scars or any other similar concern treated by skin needling? Then you probably use a derma roller with needles atleast 0.5 mm or even longer. Longer needle size derma rollers help to stimulate the new collagen building and skin renewal process.
As the collagen synthesis in your skin is entirely natural process, it takes time to occur like explained earlier. Do not disturb it by using the derma roller too often, be patient and use derma roller about once every 4-6 weeks.
Sometimes after needling, your skin may turn red, similar like when sunburned, feel sensitive or slightly swollen after few hours of the treatment. It is quite normal. Keep your treated skin well moisturized and avoid direct sunlight without quality sunscreen.
You may also notice some peeling after few days, moisturize your skin and don’t let it dry. Apply quality skin care solutions that include Vitamins A, C and E so your skin could benefit most of them to support the new collagen synthesis in your skin.
