When should you not have derma rolling treatments?
Although derma rolling is appropriate for adults of all ages and skin types, it may not be suitable if you are:
- Taking medications such as antibiotics, antidepressants, or hypertension drugs that have side effects affecting the skin or cause photosensitivity
- Undergoing other cosmetic treatments, such as chemical peels, dermal filler injections, laser resurfacing, or aesthetic surgery
- Afflicted with abnormal skin problems, such as cold sores, eczema, keloid scars, fungal infections, bruises, or skin cancer
How many treatment sessions will I need?
More than one treatment may be required to obtain optimal results. For example, scars typically require a series of treatment sessions.
How soon will I see results after derma rolling treatments?
Speed of results with derma rolling can depend in part on the length of the needles used and the products used with treatment. You may see some improvement in skin texture right away. More noticeable results should appear within six weeks after treatment, with new collagen growth continuing for even longer.
