If you’ve finally convinced yourself to try this amazing treatment, but aren’t sure where to begin, what’s the first step? Please don’t worry, we’ve got it all here for you. There are many questions about microneedling that are frequently asked by its first users.
The most commonly asked question is how often can I perform microneedling? Each individual’s skin condition differs greatly, so in order to answer this question, one might assess what skin problems they are experiencing and have a licensed esthetician tailor a treatment session to suit them.
In this article, we provide some general guidelines to help you estimate how much time to allocate for your treatments and how often you should perform this procedure to achieve the desired results. If you are a beginner and want to use the smallest dermaroller, then you should read this article.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling utilizes a device called a dermaroller or a dermapen that causes micro wounds in the epidermis and dermis; the healing, inflammation and the production of collagen must occur quickly in order for this procedure to be effective. Collagen production peaks 14 days after the first microneedling procedure. Therefore, we should wait at least 14 – 30 days before undergoing another microneedling procedure.
How Often Can We Dermaroll?
It is challenging to identify the best dermarolling frequency that provides best results for all skin types with gentle application. There is a broad variety of recommendations for dermarolling
frequencies. Please do not worry! We’ve been testing the dermaroller extensively so we’re able to answer your questions.
Dermarolling treatments can be performed several times per week or every day depending on needle-length; if you are new to microneedling, you should consider starting with a short- needled dermaroller. In order for you to achieve the best results, you have to use 0.1mm needles or less on your dermaroller 2-3 times a week. If you just want to see results right away, you can use longer needles, but you must wait between 4 and 6 weeks between each microneedling procedure. This is due to the fact that microneedling leaves behind tiny wounds in the skin that must be healed before the second treatment can be carried out; your skin has to have sufficient time to heal to retain its youthful glow.
How Often Can We Use A 0.5 Dermaroller?
Several of us have already mentioned that the frequency of microneedling is entirely dependent on the size of the needle. Shorter needles can be used more frequently than longer needles. 0.5 Dermarollers such as Peleva Advanced Micro Derma Roller System are typically used for hyperpigmentation, large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles- typically for anti-aging purposes. If you have any of these skin conditions, then this dermaroller is right for you.
The dermaroller is very popular with people who have sensitive skin and thin skin. It is also popular with people who wish to have multiple treatments on a weekly basis, and also boosts skin care product absorption. The epidermis of your skin will also thicken, so when you apply your favorite products your skin will absorb them rapidly; you may find that your skin bleeds a little when trying this. The length of time needed for your skin to heal will also be shortened since the dermaroller will cause less damage to it. So, you can use it twice a week.
Are 0.5 Dermarollers painful on the skin?
That’s a tough question to answer because pain is subjective and depends on the individual’s tolerance for pain. Everyone has a different tolerance for pain, but keep in mind that microneedling isn’t comfortable. The person who are highly sensitive to pain can feel pain even with the smallest needle size. Conversely, people with a high pain tolerance won’t feel pain, but there maybe a slight discomfort when they use a longer needle.
The 0.5 Dermaroller has the smallest needle and is supposed to cause minimal discomfort when rolling. Smaller needles will cause more discomfort. People who are sensitive to pain might benefit from numbing creams. Apply the cream before microneedling and let it sit for 5 minutes, then wipe it off.
