Derma Rolling VS. Microneedling

Have you been looking for ways to rejuvenate the skin on your face? When you ask friends or do a search online have you come across Derma Rollers? How about Microneedling? I get asked that question a lot, so here are some answers from a professional's perspective. That way you can make an informed decision on what treatment is best for your face.

A Derma Roller can be purchased and used at home for derma rolling. This is a DIY treatment done to stimulate collagen so as to rejuvenate the skin on your face. Just as with any do-it-yourself things, there are benefits and side effects. The good news is that you can do this treatment at home, so it is less expensive and saves time. BUT, there is a huge downside to this. Most people aren't trained on how to use these needling devices. So, by doing it yourself there is a huge chance of causing tearing to the skin. Derma rolling can also cause trauma to your face and possible scarring.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a treatment for the skin performed by a licensed professional. Microneedling has the word needle in it and sounds scary, but it is not scary at all. This procedure is safe, minimally-invasive, has no down-time and is very effective. By creating micro "injuries" to the face using tiny needles, your body automatically starts to heal itself with increased blood flow. It also produces new tissue/collagen and elastin.

When microneedling is done by a professional, better products are used and you will have better results. It will leave your skin feeling smooth, tightened and rejuvenated without causing it harm. This procedure is also great for acne scarring, skin discoloration, and fine lines and wrinkles.
