Refresh your skin with microneedling at First OC Dermatology! Our dermaroller treatment helps to improve your skin’s tone and texture for brighter, healthier looking skin.

How Does Dermaroller Microneedling Treatment Work?

Microneedling skin treatments help to rejuvenate your skin by activating your body’s natural healing process to renew skin cells and increase collagen production. It works by creating tiny, superficial incisions in the skin, which triggers your body to send healing factors to the surface to repair the damage. As these older, damaged cells are replaced with new cells, you will notice improvements to your skin’s overall appearance. These include:

  • Improved texture and complexion
  • More even skin tone
  • Reduced appearance of scars
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Address hyperpigmentation issues

With dermaroller microneedling, our skin health experts can accurately control the uniformity and depth of each incision to ensure your skin is evenly treated and prepared for any additional treatments you may have during your visit. Facials, serums, and other products applied to the skin after dermarolling can penetrate more deeply for greater effectiveness in improving your skin’s overall health.

What are the Benefits and Risks of Dermaroller Treatment?

Dermarolling microneedling treatment is less harsh on the skin than chemical peels, laser treatments, and other skin resurfacing techniques. It is safe for all complexions and skin types, including sensitive skin. Microneedling with a dermaroller can be done more frequently than more intensive treatments as well, depending on the depth of application and any treatments being done in conjunction with the microneedling.

However, people with certain skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis may not be good candidates for the treatment, as the microscopic injuries could cause flare ups. Likewise, those who have blood clotting disorders may also need to avoid microneedling treatments.

Other potential risks include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Itching and/or peeling
  • Bleeding
  • Skin tightness

In rare cases, microneedling can lead to serious infection, which is why it’s best to leave dermaroller treatments to professionals. At First OC Dermatology, we take special care to ensure our patients are safe, comfortable, and fully satisfied with their care. Our patient-centered focus and high standards of care allow you to relax and rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Can Dermaroller Treatment Be Combined with Other Services?

Yes, dermaroller microneedling treatments are often combined with other services. Most commonly, microneedling is used to prep the skin for hydrating facials and medicated treatments designed to help treat acne, address signs of aging, or otherwise improve the health and appearance of your skin.
