Microneedling, dermarolling, whatever you call it, if you have decided to try this skincare technique or if you’ve already taken the prickly plunge, here are a couple of things you might want to consider. But before we go on to after care and the main topic of whether rosehip oil after microneedling is a good idea, let’s take a step back and have a closer look on what microneedling actually is.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is when you take a derma roller and basically roll it over your skin. What’s a derma roller you say? It’s this little nifty contraption where basically a roller is married with tons of tiny needs. So essentially, each time you roll the derma roller over your skin, you are basically puncturing it as you go along. Actually, it is said that rolled over 15 times will create roughly 250 punctures per square centimeter.
So why on earth would you want to do that to your skin? Well, microneedling actually creates a fresh new layer of natural collagen and elastin. That’s why. So this means that it basically helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also keeps the skin from sagging and gives it an all around anti-aging lift.
The benefits don’t stop there, though. Microneedling, or derma rolling, also helps reduce the appearance of acne scars and is even believed to be somewhat effective when used on stretchmarks as well.
Also, you have to remember that microneedlings helps your skin absorb products that you put on afterwards. This can swing both ways. That’s why you have to be very careful what routine you follow afterwards. You don’t want anything too harsh.
And, to be quite honest, it isn’t as harsh or painful as it may appear or sound to be. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any side effects or risks of microneedling.
- It increases inflammation which comes across as redness in the skin.
- It increases dryness in the skin as the moisture barrier of the skin is punctured and a small amount of the skin’s natural fluid escapes.
- It increases your skin’s sensitivity, especially to the sun, during the recovery stage—so you’ll have to try your best to stay indoors and out of the sun.
Rosehip Oil After Microneedling? Yay or Nay?
Now, to help combat the potential side effects, oils are a great option. And so let’s go ahead and address the issue of whether or not Rosehip Oil after microneedling is a good idea.
Generally, it's a yay. Out of all the oils available on the market today, rosehip oil is definitely one of the safest. Just be sure that you get rosehip oil that is 100% pure and organic. You wouldn't want any unnecessary additives that could potentially be harmful to the skin.
