Dermaroller Acne

Dermaroller acne. Hi, Aisling back again continuing on with my blog series exploring everything there is to do with a dermaroller. Today I will explain how the dermaroller works with acne

Acne is a common skin problem that can affect both teenagers and adults. Having to deal with acne itself is bad enough, but acne can also leave behind permanent scars. Thankfully, the dermaroller can help acne scars. I’ll explain how in just a moment. First let’s learn a bit more about acne scarring…


Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually aren’t as smooth and flawless as the original skin.

How A Dermaroller Can Treat Acne Scarring

Dermaroller works by rebuilding collagen under the skin. The tiny needles on the dermaroller, when rolled onto the skin, will create many tiny, invisible punctures on the skin. The body will start repairing itself by building collagen to rejuvenate the skin. This is the same principle with most laser rejuvenation treatments, acid peels and other expensive and invasive skin rejuvenating treatments, except dermaroller costs only a fraction of the price with very little healing time.

The Dermaroller treatment starts at the skin’s epidermis. It stimulates the skin to heal itself from the indented scars. Collagen is a protein that helps in keeping the structure of the skin intact.
