Dermarolling and Retinol

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Beauty Tips Blog! If you are new to this blog, I have been exploring the dermaroller. Digesting it, exploring it from every angle possible. I am well and truly leaving no stone unturned. For those of you who are new to this blog, first of all welcome, welcome, welcome! And second of all, allow me to explain what a dermarolling and retinol is.

The Dermaroller…

is an at home micro needling device. Micro needling is an in clinic treatment where tiny needles puncture the epidermis of the skin. This controlled injury sends your skin into repair mode. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated. These are proteins that our bodies produce naturally but their production slow down from the age of 25 on wards. They are also proteins that our bodies produce in healing the skin. As we all know , scarring occurs in areas where the skin is persistently wounded or wounded really badly to start with. By causes controlled injury to these areas, we can stimulate collagen and elastin to revisit the area and heal and reduce their appearance. This is how micro needling reduces the appearance of acne scarring. All of the facts come from non other than the team in Havana Skin Clinic.

Moving onto Retinol…

According to Dermalogica, “Retinol is an anti-aging molecule that accelerates skin-renewal and reduces wrinkles, lines, and age spots.” Taken from Dermalogica’s Official Website.

Retinol Cannot Under Any Circumstance be Used With The Dermaroller and here’s why:

Retinol is an active ingredient and and no active ingredients can be used with the the dermaroller or 3 days prior and post treatment. The only type of product that you can use while carrying out micro needling is a non active serum.
