Hello, friend, today we are going to explore an effective, permanent method of removing acne scars. Dermaroling is called. In which the tool that you use soooorta, looks like a torture device.
Well, not variety – it looks exactly as a torture device.
Maybe I shouldn't have started an article with this.
In any case, it is only very painful … not like torture as such …. DON'T DISCUSSION ….
This torture device is called a dermaloller or a skin pelt, and what he does is called a dermarollirovaniem or microgame.
The main premise is:
When you have acne scars (not so many red flat marks, but deeper with indentation or rolling), the problem is that your skin is technically already healed. You had a wound (acne spot), and then she was healed and left a scar. He was not completely treated the way you wanted, but now he is healed, so your skin sees this as a low priority for fixing and filling.
What you are doing then is wrapping a dermaroller over your skin, and micro needles create very small shots in the skin … “micro injuries”, as it is so elegant and frighteningly called. It basically “reminds” your body that there is still work in the area, and it begins to fill the scars back with tissues and collagen.
Here is a video with me showing how to do it:
Dermaroling for acne scars: not as bad as it seems
So … at first I could not believe that it was a legitimate thing that I would recommend. In the end, it sounds so aggressive.
And, as you know, I'm all about being gentle on your skin. And I still!
One important thing to remember:
Do not dermaroll on areas of your face that still have active acne! Clogged pores and red marks left over from well-healed acne are in order, but not on the top of active inflammatory spots. (Also, do not acupuncture the skin with raised or keloid scars)
Being aggressive and collecting, compressing and popping and tingling your skin is not how you will heal from live eels. This only makes it worse and more likely for the scar. Think about any injury – bullying – this is not the way to heal it.
However, this dermarolling thing has a lot of science, which says that on intact, healed skin it really helps to a great extent with delaminated scars. So who am I to say no.
There is one more thing:
Don't do this too much!
You can still be aggressive with a dermaroller, just do it too much (which I know some of you will take! You think that if it works, then the more, the merrier, right?)
For deep scars, you really want to do this every 6 weeks. Moreover, and you do not give your skin enough time to heal and build the collagen that you want – you only aggravate it.
Think of dermaroling, how weight lifting for your skin … when you lift weights or exercise, you create tiny little tears in your muscles. It encourages your body to rebuild them and catch more muscle tissue, which makes you stronger.
However, you need to rest after a workout so that your body does this repair work. If you work too often and do not allow enough time for recovery, then you do not become stronger and most likely get injured.
Choosing a Dermaroller for treating acne scars
When it comes to dermalollers, there are different needle lengths that you can use for different purposes.
Dermaroling is not only intended for acne scars – it can also be used to improve wrinkles, cellulite, large pores and the overall texture of the skin. It can also be used to give a topical moisturizer or healing serum deeper into the skin.
If you use it for anti-aging or serum absorption, you use a shorter needle and can do it more often. For deep acne scars, you need to use longer needle lengths to really see results.
The unfortunate part is that the longer the needle, the more it hurts, but the benefit is that you do not need to do it so often.
Here is a general guide to needle length and frequency:
To increase serum absorption and skin thickening: 0,25-0,3 mm needles. You can do it every day if your skin can tolerate it without becoming excessively dry, red or alive.
For treating weak acne scars and reducing wrinkles and increasing collagen: 0.5 mm needle. Give yourself 7 days before each subsequent treatment.
For the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles: 0.75 – 1 mm. Do not do this more than once a month.
For really deep and old scars: 1.5-2 mm needles. They can only be held every 6-8 weeks, and if you get into this area, you might consider making it a professional.
So, when you buy a dermaroller, you want to find one that has a certain number of needles per square inch (540), is titanium and, preferably, has a cover so as not to damage the needles.
Ideally, you will also find one with interchangeable heads so that you can use different needle lengths for different applications. It's not always easy to find, but I contacted one of these sets below.

General Dermarolling Procedure for Acne Scars
So, first of all, first … you want to make sure that your roller has been thoroughly disinfected before each use.
In the end, the last thing you want to do is to take the bacteria deep into the skin and cause an infection. You should take this very seriously.
After each use, rinse with hot water, then place the roller head completely immersed in rubbing alcohol for at least an hour. Then rinse again and allow to dry.
Before using it again, either rinse it with alcohol for 30 minutes, or just rinse it with soap and water and you are ready to go.
Okay, now you're gonna rock and roll. ha
Numbering creams for dermal acne scars
If you use a longer needle, you may want to apply a numb cream at this point.
With shorter needles, it really shouldn't hurt … for example … for example, take your finger nail and touch the tip of it on the forehead. A bit uncomfortable, maybe, but not painful at all.
The longer the needles, the more it starts to hurt, so in order to do a thorough job and get the results you want on your acne scars, it may seem like a good numb cream containing lidocaine.
I did a rather thorough search for natural numbness creams, without inventing a lot. Here is the best I could find.
But, I believe that, since you will only do the procedure with long needles once a month, it’s not the end of the world if you use non-natural cream.
Anyway, take your cordoning cream and put it on the areas that you will be treating, and let it sit for 30 minutes to strike.
Dermaroling your acne scars
Good, now you're ready to rock and roll.
Again, here's the video:
Therefore, take your dermaroller and hold it with your index finger while pressing on the shaft.
In principle, this “posture” of the finger creates a downward pressure necessary for proper operation. Just gentle pressure, though – no need to be too aggressive with it.
Now get to work. You will need to roll back and forth on each face area four to eight times, first in one direction and then the other, keeping your skin tight on the other side.
So roll up four or eight times. Then back and forth four or eight times. Then go to the new area.
Remember that for acne scars you do not need to treat the entire face. You can simply heal scars.
In any case, if you use longer needles, your skin is likely to be filled with small red marks and maybe a small amount of blood.
Rinse your face and then apply a moisturizer containing healing ingredients – natural oils, aloe, glycerin. Etc. Something like my DIY humidifier.
Or you can use high-quality serum vitamin C, which contains sodium acetyl phosphate, as well as SAP (not ascorbic acid) and monitor the drop in oil. I recommend the following:
What results to expect from dermaolling
Be careful with your skin after rolling. And do not expect immediate results.
As with weight lifting, after one workout you don’t get huge muscles, but after several uses (assuming you allow your skin to heal enough during each session), you should start to observe the scar filling.
Go on and hopefully you will see a big, if not a complete improvement!
