dermaroller is a cosmetic treatment in which a small, handheld device with a rolling surface covered in micro-needles is used to puncture the skin. it is typically used to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
dermaroller is generally recommended for people who have mild to moderate acne scars, stretch marks, or uneven skin tone.
it is not recommended for people with deep scars, severe acne, or active infections on the skin.
Description of Procedure
the procedure involves cleaning the skin, applying a numbing cream, and then rolling the device over the affected area in a criss-cross pattern. the treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Course of Recovery
the recovery period for dermaroller varies, but most people experience mild to moderate redness and swelling for a few days after the treatment. it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the practitioner, which may include using moisturizers and avoiding certain activities that may irritate the skin.
complications of dermaroller are rare but can include infection, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. it is important to consult with a qualified practitioner and ensure proper hygiene practices are followed during the treatment.
