The derma roller is the latest skin renewal technology. It uses CIT (collagen Induction Therapy) to renew the skin. It is equipped with micro needles and these when rolled on the skin causes the pores to open up. This causes the skin to start a renewal process by producing Collagen and Elastin. This treatment can be used for various skin problems like acne, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks and so on.
The fact that these derma rollers are nothing but fine micro needles, the lifespan of derma rollers can be any-where between 3 to 4 months. It also varies for different manufacturers or brands. It’s best if you look up about a particular manufacturer from whom you are deciding to buy. The lifespan of derma roller is also determined by factors like the size of the micro needles, the upkeep that you have done to maintain these needles and the frequency of usage. Let’s take a look at these various factors:
Size of needles and lifespan of derma rollers
The derma roller comes with varying needles sizes like .5mm, 1.0 mm and 1.5 mm. The thicker the needle the bigger the pores and the lighter the micro needle the wear and tear would be more. Once it completes the life span the needles will get blunt and when these are used it can cause more damage to the skin than doing any good.
Upkeep and lifespan of the derma roller
Upkeep is directly related to the lifespan of the derma roller. Following all the manufacturer’s instruction for maintaining the needles will ensure better lifespan of these needles, and will ensure that these are safe to be used on your skin.
Frequency of usage and lifespan of the derma roller
Usage also affects the lifespan of derma rollers. The more you use the needles these would get worn out and thus reducing its lifespan.
The biggest reason why we suggest a lifespan of derma roller is the fact that these are used in a way where the micro needles cause the skin to renew. The way it does is by literally causing minute damages on the skin which leads to skin healing process. The healing process is what causes the production of elastin and collagen. This simple yet effective process is controlled by the needles on the derma roller. That’s why it’s important that if you are a regular user, you keep the lifespan of your derma roller in mind.
