When I was surfing the internet, I came across an article talking about the benefits of microneedling and how it helps heal acne scars. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Supposedly you will see improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
I put it to the test and got a dermaroller kit to try it myself at home. My skin has cleared up from the previous acne that I had for the most part, but I’m still left with some hyperpigmentation and acne scars that I wanted to diminish. Unfortunately, after a few days of using the dermaroller, it actually caused my skin to break out even though I sanitized it with alcohol after each use.
I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and the dermaroller just wasn’t suited for my skin type. For now, I’ll be sticking to my collagen supplement and letting my skin heal naturally since I don’t want to further aggravate my skin.
