Microneedling nur vom Fachmann

Microneedling only by a specialist

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that promises a perfect, radiant complexion. It is now carried out by many cosmetic studios and dermatologists, but various derma rollers are also available commercially for home use. In this article we will explain to you why you should stay away from such offers.

Microneedling is a prickly affair: the top layer of skin is irritated using needle pricks so that the treatment releases increased levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The treatment should make the skin look noticeably firmer, fresher and younger.

A so-called derma roller is used, which is equipped with hundreds of tiny needles made of surgical steel, which are between 0.2 and 1.5 millimeters long, depending on the area of ​​the body to be treated.

To use it, the device is rolled over the skin under light pressure, causing minimal injury to the skin surface. In this way, the body's own production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin, is increased. With regular use of the derma roller, the top layer of skin is gradually renewed and the skin becomes firmer and firmer.

Sounds tempting, right? However, to achieve long-term results, microneedling should be used regularly, usually every 4-6 weeks.

Since you have to dig a little deeper into your pockets for a treatment at a beautician or dermatologist, a derma roller for home use, as is now offered on various platforms, sounds like an interesting alternative. But even if you can supposedly save money by using it in your own home, it is still better to have microneedling done by a specialist, as the treatment can be associated with some risks.

After all, we are talking about treatment with needles - incorrect handling by a layperson can quickly lead to unpleasant side effects.

During the treatment, the skin is subjected to small injuries, which means that bacteria and germs can get into the skin very quickly if meticulous attention is not paid to hygiene. Professionals therefore regularly disinfect the needles and replace blunt needles - a procedure that a layperson cannot afford. Incorrect handling can quickly lead to inflammation or infection of the skin.

It is also important to use the derma roller with the correct, consistent pressure; improper handling can quickly lead to unwanted injuries.

It is also important to treat the irritated and therefore sensitive skin after the treatment with the right active ingredients that do not irritate the skin even more or even trigger allergic reactions. Here, too, you are in the best hands with an expert who can recommend the right products for you depending on your skin type and correctly assess your skin's reaction to the treatment.
