Hello everyone and I mean EVERYONE! Well, 80% of you anyway! Today, I’m looking at something we all suffer from, stretch marks. Studies suggest that 80% of people suffer with some sort of stretch marks. Luckily, progression within the beauty industry means that we have several options for reducing their appearance. In fact, did you know that Derma roller on stretch marks can reduce their appearance? Havana Skin Clinic
recently wrote a blog on this topic, breaking it down and exploring the science behind it. I’ve extracted the following facts from them as I understand the importance to explain everything as a matter of fact and not opinion, especially when it comes to skin health.
Let’s look at the science!
So how does it work? It works the same way as it does when reducing the appearance of acne scarring. The needles cause a controlled injury to the surface of the skin. This controlled injury triggers collagen and elastin production which works to smooth out the area you’re inflicting the controlled injury to. Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching and often occur during the time of puberty.
How to carry out at home micro needling on the body (stretch marks.)
First of all, you must ensure that the area is clean. We would advise carrying out treatment after a shower and with confidence that the area is thoroughly clean.
Secondly, if you are using a product to use in conjunction with the dermaroller, ensure it’s nothing other than a non active serum containing no perfumes. You cannot use any active ingredients on an area you are performing at home micro needling for 3 days prior and 3 days post treatment.
Thirdly, the different areas of the body can handle different levels of micro needling. Seek expert advice being going ahead with at home micro needling. For example, the chest area would be more fragile than the thigh area.
