Does Dermarolling or Skin Needling Hurt?

Before we dive into “Does dermarolling or skin needling hurt?”.  Let’s discover why we need these treatments, and how our skin changes over time.  Collagen is an important protein responsible for the strength and elasticity of our skin.  Unfortunately as time passes, the levels of collagen present in our skin decrease.  This causes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and propelling the visual ageing process.  Dermarolling or skin needling is a popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment.  It is a minimal fuss option.  For those who would like to renew or rejuvenate the skin for a cleaner, smoother look.

If you would like to improve the complexion of your skin.  You can treat it for any form of skin pocking or damage.  Such as acne scarring, chicken pox scarring, or stretch marks.  Then skin needling could be the answer to your problems.  If you are interested in other cosmetic treatments to improve the look of acne-scarred skin.  Learn more about our chemical face peels in Bournemouth.

By using a Dermaroller®, a number of micro needles are gently rolled across the skin in order to create tiny injuries.  These micro injuries encourage the skin to heal itself, which includes an increased production of collagen. Don’t worry though – as the needle columns shallowly enter the dermis of the skin, there is no long lasting visual effect from the micro needling.

The pain associated with a dermaroller® treatment is directly related to the length of the micro needles.  Starting at 0.2mm, you will experience a mild tingling sensation but nothing near pain or discomfort.  As the length of the needle increases so does the related sensation.  However you can rest assured that you will never experience more than you are prepared for.

What is Skin Needling and What Does Dermarolling Do?

Also known as dermarolling, skin needling is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that offers a safe option when you want to renew your skin.  For a smoother, brighter, more youthful complexion.

As we age, collagen – the substance behind the elasticity and firmness of youthful skin.  Collagen reduces and contributes to the increase in fine lines and wrinkles.  Skin needling is a non-invasive treatment that encourages the skin to renew itself in a controlled manner.

What is a Dermaroller?

A tool called a Dermaroller® is used whereby a series of micro needles are rolled across your skin. These small needle columns don’t remove the surface of the skin like chemical peels.  They penetrate the dermis of the skin to create micro injuries.  These tiny injuries kickstart the skin’s natural healing abilities.  Which amongst other things include the production of collagen.

The great thing about dermarolling is that it does not need to remove any surface layers like a chemical peel.   But rather encourages a natural process to renew the skin.  However, skin needling isn’t just for looking more youthful.  The renewal process can be used for a range of different skin treatments.  Including acne scarring, chicken pox scars, stretch marks and aged or pigmented skin.  With dermarolling, scars and pocks can appear reduced for a smoother and more even complexion.
