Most people freak out when they spot acne on their face; not because the acne would be painful or uncomfortable for 3-4 days until it heals, but for the scar, that would last many months. Wish there could be a magic wand to erase the scars in just a few strokes…
Well, not exactly, but the derma rollers could be some sorts of magic wand to help get rid of acne scars.
What are Derma rollers?
In micro needling therapy, Derma rollers are used for acne and acne scars. Derma roller is designed to break down the scarred tissues and help to stimulate proliferation of the skin cells.
Derma roller is mainly used for face, and furthermore, any part of the body can be treated. It is suited for all skin types. People can opt for derma rollers without any fear of health or skin risk.
How do Derma rollers work?
Dermarollers work by creating tiny, invisible pores on the skin that activates the skin’s natural healing process. New collagen and elastin is produced, generating brand new skin cells that will fill out any pitted scars or indentations. At the same time, the scar tissue is ‘tricked’ into dividing and is gradually broken down.
After a few treatments, the scar tissue starts to contract, and hyperpigmentation begins to fade. The derma roller also thickens the skin and makes the scars less visible. With time and continued treatments, most scar tissue is removed and replaced with smooth, healthy skin.
