Derma Pen Derma Roll
A derma roller is handheld equipment that uses small needles to puncture the skin, leaving microscopic lesions and abrasions. The skin subsequently heals itself by delivering elastin and collagen to the affected area, restoring the skin’s surface and volume. The procedure is also known as collagen induction treatment because of the increased amount of collagen produced.
Before exploring how derma-rolling can assist with stretch marks, it’s important to understand what they are. To clarify, a stretch mark is a tear in the dermis’ collagen weave that arises when the skin is stretched beyond its tensile limitations. Under the skin, this appears as a lighter-appearing linear wrinkling. This can develop during pregnancy or with rapid weight gain in the hips and legs—it can happen at any time, but it is most frequent during adolescence because of the hormonal changes in the skin to accommodate growth.
