How the Dermaroller Works on Your Skin Type

It doesn’t matter who you are or how much money you have.  We all seek out ways to take care of our skin, especially if you suffer from skin problems.  From mild wrinkling to scars, we look to improve the quality of our skin as it affects how we are perceived by others.  But what do you do if you have sensitive skin?  What treatments can you find for mottled or dark skin tones?  The Dermaroller can help with all of these problems.

What is a Dermaroller?

The Dermaroller is a device used in the microneedling procedure.  Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a medical treatment in which really fine clusters of needles are stamped or rolled across the surface of the skin.  They are just deep enough to reach the dermal layer of skin where they create tiny wounds, inducing the skin to start the healing process.  That process replaces injured cells with fresh, rejuvenated skin cells and encourages collagen production.  The ingredient of collagen is well known for making one look younger.

The Dermaroller and Skin Tones

How will the Dermaroller work with your specific skin color?  The Dermaroller works on all skin tones.  It is not affected by pale skin or dark tones.  This procedure is non-ablative, meaning it leaves the epidermis (top layer) of the skin unharmed.  The cells that produce our skin color are produced in the outer layer of skin.  Because microneedling targets only the dermis, it won’t affect the outer layer.

For anyone with very pale skin or someone with darker skin color, seeking treatment can be problematic.  Other procedures using chemical peels or light-based laser procedures can result in very blotchy skin or injuries such as burns.  You don't have to worry about that with the Dermaroller.

Treatment and Recovery Time

As with all types of skin care treatments, the specific problem and the area being treated determine how long the procedure will be.  A large area will certainly take more time than a small patch of skin and a mild problem will be shorter than a deep treatment.  Another factor is pain tolerance.  Some people require a numbing agent be applied topically to the area before the procedure can start.  It can take as little as twenty minutes or well over an area in the clinic.

Recovery time is a different matter.  Because no damage is caused to the surface of your skin and the method is not abrasive, there is little to no recovery time.  The only side effects you might experience are some redness in the treated area and possibly some swelling, both of which disappear in a day or two.  More intensive treatments might take several days.

It's All About Results

Your reason for seeking treatment is that you want noticeable results and that is what you will receive with a Dermaroller method.  Most people see mild results the next day.  It does take a little bit of time to see the full effect.  Other procedures exist with more immediate results and those who have used laser equipment before know this, but they don't work with all complexions and each comes with risks and significant side effects. Considering those factors, it makes the Dermaroller treatment a much better choice.

Secrets of Beauty Makeup Safety

What does the quality of your makeup depend on? Your beauty makeup is founded on such important things as sort of cosmetics, skin condition, you personal skin treatment experience. But we often forget some details, at first sight inconspicuous. Get by rote, these "some details" can make a lot of problems with you beauty makeup. Following some rules will permit you to fence off the consequences. As usual, rules are onefold you need good personal hygiene - clean hands, clean face, and common sense. There are some risks, which can put a crimp in making a beauty makeup.

When did you check your cosmetics bag? How many of you favorite cosmetics are out of time? Contamination can prejudice your skin and cause serious injury. Every time you open a bottle of foundation or case of eye shadow, bacterium and microorganisms in the air can rush in. But if the product is adequately preserved, its special components can kill off the bacterium to keep the product safe.

Have you ever tried to apply your makeup being at the wheel? One of the riskiest things a woman can do is to put on mascara while she's driving. You hit a bump and you scratch your eyeball. It is not concerned a disease bacterium, but normal germs that are all over the air can search into the hurt eye. You can go blind without proper medical attention through such carelessness.

The other thing: don’t share, under any circumstances. Never share, not even with your best friend. You see now, sharing cosmetics means sharing germs, and the risk with any consequences. What about the testers commonly found at department store cosmetic counters? Are the preservation ingredients able to save the product? At home, the preservatives have time, usually a whole day, for clearance of bacteria injected after each use. There's no doubt about the cosmetic testers, witch are used half-hourly? If you really want to test a cosmetic before you buy, you should ask for and insist on a new, unused applicator. Healthy skin is a controlling factor of beauty makeup.

In increasing frequency we deal with allergic reactions to cosmetics. Highly allergic individuals know that hypoallergenic can mean almost anything to anybody. As far as it concerned with the cosmetics "hypo" means "less than", and hypoallergenic means the product causes an allergic reaction scarcer than other ones. As usual manufacturers do clinical tests, of ingredients. But there are still no regulatory standards for hypoallergenic.

• bronze powder, your skin will look scary at the light of bulbs;

• powder with bright shiny particles, because at the dim winter sun (especially in cold weather) it will look unnatural;

• professional potent scrubs, because skin is exposed to traumatic effects of climate.

What should be added in your cosmetic bag:

• oily foundation cream. Choose this cosmetic mean on the butter basis instead of water one;

• colorless loose powder. It gives additional protection for the facial skin;

• perfume with drawling floral aroma. In the cold they really unfold, replacing unnecessary molestation on a soft, enveloping charm. In addition, such perfume raises the mood;

• moisturizing tonic-spray keeping from summer, because dry air in the office affects the skin as well as a 30-degree heat.
