SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS MICRO NEEDLING?
Also referred to as dermarolling, micro needling this is a treatment that can be done at home, by an aesthetician, or in your dermatologist’s office. It gets its name from the tool used, a dermaroller, which looks a bit like a miniature paint roller, except it’s covered with tiny needles.
Before you freak out, know that the needles on the at-home devices shouldn’t be painful, since they’re much smaller than those used in a derm’s office. (But more on that later.) Micro-needling has been around since the early 2000s, and works on a similar principle as laser treatments.
When rolled over the skin, the dermaroller does two things. First, it allows for better penetration of products, thanks to tiny pinpricks that work almost like canals, allowing your products — often serums, since they’re the most viscous — to reach deeper into the skin. Second, it creates micro-injuries, which tell your brain to kick into repair mode. This prompts your body to send collagen to the epidermis, which, as you probably already know, is an important building block of healthy, radiant skin. More collagen, better skin.
