Microneedling rollers have obtained a real cult following, from their origins as an in-office-only skin-changing treatment to their at-home counterparts that promise to deliver the same results for less. If you haven’t yet jumped on the microneedling bandwagon, what are you waiting for? At-home facial microneedling rollers can deliver impactful results to your skin in a short amount of time in a painless and completely safe manner. Unlike in-office microneedling treatments, which can be painful and invasive, at-home microneedling is pain-free (feeling a bit like a gentle exfoliating scrub) and treats a variety of skin concerns leaving skin looking and feeling healthier from the inside out.
So, how does it work?
Microneedling works by creating tiny micro injuries in the uppermost layer of skin. Micro injuries are caused by a small, handheld derma roller with hundreds of microneedles. When rolled over the skin, the derma rollers stimulate your body’s natural healing response to repair the micro wounds. When the skin cells go into repair and restore mode, two things happen: they send for back up, and they rebuild tissue. When they send for back up, white blood cells come to the rescue and begin assisting the skin cells in creating new replacement tissue. This new tissue is filled with collagen and elastin and provides a smoother, healthier skin surface. Microneedling three to five times a week (or even daily) keeps this internal process ongoing. It’s like endurance building for the skin, training it to be in a somewhat constant state of repair increases your collagen production, and the result is skin that appears younger and more luminous than ever before. There are truly so many ways a microneedling facial roller will improve your skin. Here are four:
Diminish Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Most of us want something we can do at home that’s less invasive than harsh chemical peels or regular injections. Using a microneedling facial roller can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and prevent their reappearance. When the microneedling roller is used regularly on the skin, the skin begins to regenerate at a much faster rate than it previously did. New skin means new, healthy tissue. Even if you do opt for professional-grade treatments, it’s ideal (and more budget friendly) to have an at-home, in-between treatment to maintain and magnify results. If used regularly, a derma roller can even reduce or make obsolete your trips to the doctor. Users of facial microneedling rollers like The GloPRO Facial Microneedling Tool report their skin looks and feels younger after using it on a regular basis.
Renew the Skin’s Natural Glow
Daily life can really dull our skin. From environmental pollutants, sun damage and stress, our skin, which once looked so healthy and fresh, can become dull, matte-like and dry. Additionally, as we get older, our skin begins to regenerate at a slower speed. This means new skin cells, which were once renewed more quickly, producing healthy, new skin, slow down their restorative processes. Thankfully, we can jumpstart that heal and restore response simply by using a micro facial roller. When skin cells see the tiny micro injuries caused by the derma roller, they immediately respond by beginning the repair process. When skin cells begin to repair, they make new collagen-dense tissue. New tissue is more luminous and radiant than older tissue. Additionally, many derma roller users report that the rollers naturally produce an allover radiance and glow.
Improves Skin Texture and Firmness
As we get older, the skin on our faces begins to feel less elastic. It can feel droopy, crepey, and even rough in areas. This happens for a number of reasons. In addition to environmental issues like pollution and other toxins, our skin is exposed to the sun daily, and chances are we haven’t been using sunscreen our entire lives. These issues alone can cause skin to age prematurely and lose its overall health and elasticity. Lucky for us, we can combat these issues and achieve healthy, firmer, smoother skin at home without paying a fortune or undergoing painful procedures. Using a microneedling facial roller causes skin to immediately regenerate. The new skin that is created has more elasticity and firmness. The best part is that this process is entirely painless unlike in-office microneedling treatments that use larger rollers with longer needles - the process is painful, draws blood, and often leaves bruising. The treatments are also costly and can be time-consuming depending on how many treatments your provider recommends to treat a specific concern.
Reduce the Appearance of Scars
One of the most important reasons to invest in a great derma roller like The GloPRO Facial Microneedling Tool is the ability the roller has to diminish scarring. Whether you are dealing with acne scarring or pockmarks, melasma or sunspots, using a facial roller can help fade these scars effectively and dramatically from the comfort of your own home. Microneedling your skin causes skin cells to regenerate and renew more quickly than they would normally; therefore, the skin that contains the scar is gradually replaced with brand new tissue. Adding in a great facial serum or oil after your microneedling treatment can also aid in scar fading and removal. When dealing with acne scarring, using a microneedling facial roller can reduce the pockmarks left behind by painful cystic acne. Microneedling has the ability to smooth out these pockets of damaged tissue and create a more even surface. Microneedling’s ability to “plump” the skin by stimulating collagen production and creating new, healthier tissue dramatically helps fill in these areas of skin loss.
Using a microneedling facial roller will improve your skin in numerous ways, at a fraction of the cost and in a painless and virtually effortless way. You can enjoy benefits such as increased luminosity, a reduction in the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles and diminished scarring all with one simple treatment. Users of facial rollers report their skin is brighter, firmer, feels younger and more elastic, and has an overall glow that they did not have before using the roller. Unlike in-office microneedling treatments, at-home microneedling treatments are non-invasive, pain free and don’t require any downtime. You can get the same great results of an in-office treatment at home without any of the hassle. When considering how to treat numerous skin concerns all at once, using a microneedling facial roller is a no-brainer.
