My Dermarolling Results

SDara Microneedle Derma Roller

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.

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.

UPDATE 01-08-20:

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. 🙂

SDara Microneedle Derma Roller

I decided to start dermarolling tonight after inspecting my skin. My skin doesn’t have any open wounds. No acne. It doesn’t feel sensitive. It’s all good. I’ve been waiting for this moment since forever! I’m ready for it. 🙂 It feels so good to be at this state (clear skinnn!!!!!). 🙂

Here’s my experience using the dermaroller for the first time + tips on how to use the dermroller.

Clean the dermaroller

First step, sanitize the tool. This step is very important. You don’t want to use a dirty tool on the face. That will lead to infections and stuff that no one wants. Remember to sanitize, sanitize, sanitize!! Don’t ever skip this step.

Prep the skin

Prep the skin by cleansing the facial skin. Use a gentle facial cleanser. Something that is simple. My facial cleanser is very gentle on my skin. 🙂 After cleansing the skin, pat dry.

How to use the dermaroller

The instructions states not to puncture the skin but apply pressure. Roll back and forth in desired area 4-5 times. Here’s my experience doing this. I did my whole face. When I was using the dermaroller on my skin, omg, it hurts in the beginning. Once my skin adapted to the pain, the process went smoothly. My face was beet red afterwards. I only applied pressure too. Once that was over…

What to apply to the skin

I applied serums, such as Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. I noticed that my serums sunk into my skin much faster. It vanished so quickly in an instant. It usually takes a few minutes for them to absorb into my skin. Hmmm!

*Santitize the dermaroller once again. IMPORTANT!!*

How many times a week to use the dermaroller?

The instructions states to use once a week for optimal results.

I’ll post my results tomorrow.
