Rodan and Fields Derma Roller For Skin Tone and Texture
“Many of the benefits of derma rolling you would find in a plastic surgeon’s office,” says A.J. Pacini, cosmetic dermatologist at Pacini Dermatology and Laser in Santa Monica, California. While derma rolling in its home form is highly concentrated and gentle—so what can go wrong?
“The tissue damage is typically short-lived,” says Dr Pacini. “The biggest concern with derma rolling is that there is a lack of knowledge as to what is actually happening,” Pacini says that one of the biggest misconceptions is that the rolling process damages collagen.
“Collagen is very important in maintaining skin elasticity and depth. You are actually causing damage to the skin when you perform derma rolling.
Derma Rolling For Anti-Aging
After decades of patients pleading with dermatologists to “please make my skin younger again,” many dermatologists now agree that a derma roller is a viable option for improving the texture and tone of the skin.
What is it: A derma roller is a handy device that’s used to help remove dead cells and tighten the skin on the face and body. Unlike several cosmetic peels or chemical peels, it’s a non-invasive procedure that does not require a doctor’s supervision. Why it works: The technique can help correct hyper-exposed skin that’s often filled with dead skin cells and has even been said to work wonders for patients with acne. Derma rolling is not like a massage or even other face-polishing techniques—it’s actually quite non-invasive.
Derma Rolling For Men
Derma rolling is not only useful for the fairest of complexions, but it’s also appropriate for men of any skin type, says board-certified dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic + clinical research of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital. “Women have likely been derma rolling since they were young girls using bath towels,” he says, “and men can use a less restrictive sheet if that’s easier for them to do at home.” Derma rolling is known to have some pretty amazing benefits for women.
Derma Rolling For Large Pores
What is derma rolling, and why should I try it? This form of skin therapy, sometimes referred to as “acne therapy,” is a procedure that involves applying gentle strokes to problem areas of the face, such as the nose, chin and upper lip, said Liza Bolen, MD, a New York City dermatologist. “The benefits are twofold,” she said. “It produces micro-tears in the skin, which help to clear out micro-abrasions. And when the skin is opened, and its skin cells are released, it improves circulation to the facial skin and makes it a little more receptive to new skin cell growth,” she said. How does it work?
Derma Rolling For Stretch Marks
To get the scoop on how it really works, we talked to two seasoned derma rolling pros, Rodan & Fields’ Kathy Kaehler and founder of St. Tropez Skincare, Julia Clarke. Read on for their thoughts on this cutting-edge beauty trend, along with a demonstration video from the pros! “Derma rolling is very popular among celebrities and models because it does wonders for all skin types,” says Kaehler. “It has been a client favourite of mine for years. It not only improves the texture of the skin, but it also helps relieve tension and even help treat stretch marks.” “This has been the #1 recommended treatment by dermatologists to improve the texture of the skin,” adds Clarke. “It can also be used for acne scarring and stretch marks.
Derma Rolling For Scars
Using your fingertips, you can massage the skin’s surface to target hyperpigmentation (skin discolouration), fine lines and wrinkles, and help reduce the appearance of scars. The reason? Derma rolling’s massaging action gently forces blood to flow into the skin and soften the scar tissue so it’s more supple and collagen is produced, making the scar less noticeable. Derma rolling works on all skin types, including those with sensitive or dry skin. The key, explains Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Douglas L. Conroy, MD, FAAD, FAACS, author of Doctors Preferred Cosmetic Surgery, is to do it gently and to massage one area at a time for just a minute or two. One caveat: This method will not help fade hyperpigmentation. For that, a derma roller must be activated with a light touch.
Derma Rolling For Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is where areas of the skin become darker in colour than the surrounding skin. It is easily visible and may make those who suffer from it feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Fortunately, for those of us who are unfortunate enough to have hyperpigmentation, there is derma rolling. Derma rolling can reduce the effects of and even remove hyperpigmentation by assisting in removing the topmost layer of skin and developing melanocytes.
