My Best Anti-aging Secret When It comes To a Derma Roller

Hi Beauties,

 

Today I’m going to share my best anti-aging secrets also what I found works best for me and my clients, I’m going to explain why Derma Rolling also known as Microneedling is super beneficial & a must have!

I’m sure by now you have heard about the Derma Roller, if not I’m more than willing to share my experience with you.

Micro needling also known as derma rolling is a safe, chemical free procedure also known as Collagen induction therapy. It’s a skin rejuvenation procedure which works with the use of a device containing fine needles. The needles are used to create small micro injuries by puncturing the stratum corneum (outer layers of the skin) also known as the epidermis layer, to create controlled skin injury.

Each puncture creates a channel which encourages the body to produce new collagen and elastin and would also promote product penetration. The epidermis layer is only 0.02 mm deep and contains no nerves, that’s why this treatment is painless (depending which needle size you’re working with). It helps tremendously with the improvement of skin texture, firmness, reduction pore size, scar tissue and stretch marks.

The main focus is to stimulate the body’s own collagen production also to improve product penetration to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity, pigmentation, cellulite, sun damage, acne scars, burn scars.

Ladies, as we all now unfortunately there is no magic potion that cures aging, BUT there is hope. First let me explain a bit more about the skin.

What causes aging & how to treat it?

  • Over exposure to sunlight
  • pollution
  • Collagen dipletion
  • smoking
  • unhealthy diet
  • insufficient water intake
  • inadequate sleep
  • avoiding exfoliation of the skin
  • alcohol
  • never applying a broad spectrum SPF

The skin acts as a barrier for protection and preventing substances to be absorbed into the skin, BUT by needling or derma rolling the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) you are creating channels into the skin allowing product to penetrate deeper also stimulating collagen production in the skin for optimal results. Whiteout an active ingredient’s molecule penetrating the product is ineffective.

When performed in conjunction with antioxidant cream, vitamin A or C fat-soluble oil application, the penetration of these substances is vastly increased, I prover the vitamin C serum from TruSkin as is contains the most benefits in conjunction with derma rolling.

 

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is a hard, insoluble and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. In the majority of collagen, the molecules are packed together to form very similar long thin fibrils. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is the substance that holds the whole body together. It is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons.

Collagen is most commonly found in the skin, bones and connective tissue within the body, providing structural support, strength and elasticity (in combination with elastin). Collagen can be found in the extracellular matrix a network of macro molecules that determine the physical properties of body tissues.

In the middle layer of the skin the dermis collagen helps form a fibrous network, which new cells can grow on. Collagen is also required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells. Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and leading to sagging skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles.

Collagen is secreted by a variety of different cells, but primarily by connective tissue cells. While a person is still young the body consistently produces collagen, but collagen synthesis begins to decline around the age of 40, with a dramatic reduction in synthesis in women after menopause. By the age of 60 there is typically a considerable decline in collagen production

 What Increase collagen production?

The growth of collagen, elastin, and melanin can all be stimulated through a derma roller. Collagen like all proteins is made up of amino acids. Of these amino acids, nine are considered essential e.g they cannot be synthesized by the body and must be acquired through the diet.

Other nutrients that may be support collagen formation include:

  • Proline: found in egg whites, meat, cheese, soy and cabbage
  • Anthocyanidins: found in blueberries, blackberries, cherries and raspberries
  • Vitamin C: found in oranges, strawberries, peppers and broccoli
  • Copper: can be found in shellfish, nuts, red meat and some drinking water
  • Vitamin A: found in animal-derived foods and in plant foods as beta-carotene.

How To Use The Derma Roller & How It Will Change Your Life?

The device consists of a roller containing 200 needles attached to it. You apply pressure and roll the device over the treated area to penetrate the epidermis multiple times with the needles. This induces an “avalanche” of collagen production within the dermis, resulting in skin tightening, reducing fine lines and stretch mark diminishment.

There are no significant risks of permanent skin damage with derma rolling treatments because the outer layer of the skin remains intact with this treatment. When performed in conjunction with antioxidant vitamin A and C fat-soluble oil application, the penetration of these latter substances is vastly increased.

Ladies should be advised that multiple treatments will be necessary. The number of needling sessions depends on the individual skin condition. Three times a week may be necessary depending on the needle size the smaller the needle is the more you can use the derma roller.

What does a derma roller do for the skin?

  • Improves our collagen production
  • Improve fine line
  • Improve texture
  • Refine pore size
  • Improve aging
  • Improve scars
  • Improve pigmentation

Does micro needling damage the skin?

No, there has been no reports of any side effects with the roller. The derma roller penetrates the top skin layer, where tiny needles form infiltration channels for a short time. This does not remove the protective barrier of your skin, these tiny channels are closed in hours after derma rolling. There is no permanent damage caused to the skin during derma rolling. The micro-injuries created by the derma roller will trigger your skin to renew itself.

Do I need to sterilize my needling device after use?

Yes it is essential to keep your roller in a clean and sterile condition. Rinse in hot running water after every use. Stand head first in its protective cap and soak according to your soak protocols. When time is completed in soak, simply rinse and place standing up in the container it comes in with lid left open to facilitate complete drying.

The Derma Roller I use is the Sdara Derma Roller and has worked WONDERS for my skin!! The Derma Roller received a 4.5 star rating which is incredible. I’m seriously amazed by the results in such short period of time, the other fact I love about this derma roller is that is contains titanium needles which is incredibly safe and won’t spread bacteria.
