Even though stretch marks are nothing other than a natural skin feature that cannot be controlled, they can impact self-esteem to a great level, especially if they are visible.
Derma rollers are a cost-effective solution for all those who want to get rid of stretch marks without any trauma or side effects.
The tiny needles pierce the skin, creating micro-injuries to boost collagen and elastin production and eventually speed up cell turnover.
Stretch marks can be caused by pregnancy, weight gain/loss, puberty and medical conditions. Some derma rollers are effective in treating stretch marks, acne scars and hyper-pigmentation as well.
Cosmetic procedures, such as laser surgeries, are highly invasive and expensive. They also have side-effects and extensive after-care. Using creams and lotions is a slow and gradual procedure without much success.
Micro-needling triggers the production of this protein (collagen) in the skin and repairs the connective tissues, resulting in greater elasticity and healthier skin.
Other benefits of micro-needling: Reduce scars and hyperpigmentation, soothes skin texture, remove premature wrinkling and fine lines and reduce pore size.
