Is Microneedle Rolling Effective? The Info Usually Left Behind
Micro-needle rollers skyrocketed to fame during the height of the anti-age skin care.
This little inexpressive beauty tool promises to reduce wrinkles and acne scars while improving the skins complexion.
Does microneedling really work as stated, and if so, how?
You may be surprised but there are copious amounts of proof that dermarollers really work. There are no doubts in the dermatology communities.
Just recently there was a study published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. The evidence confirms that one weekly microneedling treatment will improve the skins appearance and induce the collagen percentage over a 5 month period.
Specifically it says that after 90 days of using microneedling such facial areas as frown lines, periorbital lines (crow's feet), cheek folds and upper lip line improved significantly (at least 1 grade). The average age of those who took part in this study was 55 years.
Microneedling is a great option used to maintain the skins elasticity and to stimulate and encourage the existing cells to remain active. Microneedling can be performed at home and does not require any special skills or accessories.
Pair the microneedling sessions with proper anti-age cosmetics and healthy diet which provide the skin with plenty of nutrients.
Stay healthy and beautiful!
