Jennifer Aniston talks about using the Derma-Roller

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Jennifer Aniston talked about her experience using the Derm Roller for her skin care.

AP: You’re a beauty pitchwoman. What’s the weirdest beauty regimen you’ve tried?
Jennifer Aniston uses Derma-Roller for skin care
Aniston: I don’t go out too crazy. You mean like did I ever put leeches on my face? … The closest I’ll ever go is a derma-roller. Google it — it’s great. It’s like a little wheel that has little pins, like acupuncture needles in a way, and you roll it and it stimulates your collagen and it also allows for your products to seep into your skin.

 

How Dermal Microneedling Works

Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury by producing new collagen and encouraging elasticity. Dermal microneedling initiates this injury response by creating hundreds of temporary micro channels or openings in the skin without any thermal energy or skin removal. In response, our bodies lay down new collagen under the skin resulting in tightening of the skin and smoothing of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

About Microneedling Treatments

Patients typically tolerate microneedling treatments very well. Topical numbing creams are applied for 30 minutes prior to treatments. Then the treatment usually takes about 30 – 45 minutes to complete, depending on the areas to be treated. As there is trauma to the skin, an antiviral may need to be prescribed if you are prone to cold sores. Many report little or no discomfort during the procedure. We will work with you to ensure your comfort during the procedure. This procedure is minimally invasive; however, since the skin is being penetrated there will be some effects afterward. The more aggressive the treatment, the more side effects.

What to Expect After Dermal Microneedling

Redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure but with little to no downtime. The following day patients may return to work and resume normal activities. Most patients are able to conceal any residual signs of the treatment with makeup. Within days, there will be no evidence that any treatment was performed.

Typical post-treatment effects:

  • Day 1: Mild to moderate swelling and redness. There may be some mild bruising as well.
  • Day 2: Some persisting redness may be present, but all redness, bruising and swelling should be diminishing. One can apply makeup to cover any remaining redness.
  • Day 3: Most redness, bruising and swelling should be nearly gone. Normal appearance with makeup may be achieved.
  • Day 4: Skin appears mostly normal at this point with some minor swelling.

What Dermal Microneedling Can Do for You

Dermal microneedling is an excellent way to achieve a smooth face. With this service, about a dozen fine needles are used to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface to rebuild elasticity, collagen, and reduce pore size. You can expect acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles to diminish over a series of treatments. For the best results, we recommend three to six sessions depending on the problem we are addressing. Deeper lines require at least six treatments while pigmentation or fine lines may require less. The procedure may be combined with vitamin C and other antioxidants to stimulate even more collagen production.
