My Dermarolling Results
Here are my results after the first day of using the SDara Microneedle Derma Roller!
I woke up this morning and noticed that my skin looked brighter. The texture of my skin appeared smoother and more even-toned. My overall complexion looked really good. Pores looked smaller too. Wow, that’s simply amazing! I’ve always wanted to minimize the size of my large pores. I really liked the results. I’m going to continue to use it once a week (as recommended). Using the dermaroller requires some ‘skin care routine’ downtime afterwards too.
So my skin does feel a little bit more sensitive than usual after dermarolling. Even though I don’t have any redness in my skin, I can feel the sensitivity. There are skin care ingredients to avoid after dermarolling. They are AHAs, BHAs, anything that can irritate the skin. I don’t use BHAs anyways, since they never truly worked me. All it did was dry my skin out with poor results. I won’t be able to use my AHA+ lotion for a few days. Also, BP.
Here are the skin care products I’m using until then.
- Cos De BAHA Vitamin C Serum
- Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum
- Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum
- Cos De BAHA Niacinamide Serum
- Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum
- Cos De BAHA MA Peptide
I’m sticking to skin care products like Vitamin C and anything with Hyaluronic Acid in it. Anything moisturizing that calms the skin down. Some people say to avoid retinol. My retinol serum doesn’t irritate my skin. It’s not a perscription cream/gel. I use it. I know that looks like a lot of skin care products, but my routine goes by very quick. I only need a few drops of each serum and gently press them into my skin. It feels like I have nothing on afterwards, since they sink into the skin soooo well! They are all hydrating. Also, last but not least, I use a sheet mask. Last night, I used Herbal Infusion Rosehip Seed Extract Sheet Mask. 🙂
If you’re thinking about microneedling at home, go for it. I like what I’m seeing. Just make sure to follow the instructions.
Here’s an update on my Dermarolling experience. Surprisingly, my skin is back to normal. This is an ‘at-home’ treatment, so it’s not going to be similar to a ‘professional treatment’. I was able to use BP again the next day but at night. I was able to use the AHA+ lotion after skipping a day, so that wasn’t too bad. But, I am thinking about using the dermaroller 2x a week instead of once a week, since my skin recovered this quick. And I’m really liking what it’s doing to my skin. This is going to be very beneficial for my acne scars. I’m going to try it out and see how it goes. I’ll make an update when it happens. 🙂
