Is It True Dermarolling Ages You in the Long Term? Are There Any Studies on the Effects Longterm?

Is this true? "The reason this torture device works is the dermis layer of skin rushes all kinds of "repairs" to heal the damage done by the puncture holes inflicted upon the skin.  also temporarily improves the skin's appearance. problem is the long term effect. The "repairs" greatly accelerates the decay of the dermis layer that only has a limited number of repairs in it before it starts to permanently collapse. When the collapse happens wrinkles and harder skin are the result. So, in effect, users are prematurely aging their appearance for a very temporary improvement. A more sustainable alternative is Botox or Dysport  at a much lower treatment cost. Results last 3-5 months even longer with periodic treatment, they don't damage the dermis layer of skin." I read this in a post on website reviewing the dermaroller.

Botox and Dysport are both toxins no matter how you cut it. They work by causing paralysis of the musculature. Demarolling/microneedling is still a safer option that yields results lasting at least a year if skin is cared for. If used along with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), the results are more pronounced and longer lasting. I am an RN and alternative wellness practitioner trained in botox, dermal fillers, etc..., but due to personal philosophy of cancer prevention and wellness promotion, I opted to not perform these unless there is a medical basis for such treatment. Temporary cosmetic enhancement is no reason to inject a toxin into your body.

This to some degree sounds true . Think of how laser works by destroying and repairing skin . This claim is supported by many of our laser damage stories and even many stories on the vi peel . It actually could explain many of the deteriorating , sinking , sink holes that people suffer with after aggressive treatments . I personally am a laser damage victim and would like to try derma rolling but , you have to rest and go slowly . Seriously consider all cosmetic enhancing options carefully . You could go backwards like many of the people who have had their life destroyed by lasers and peels. Interesting post . I will look into .

I've had 4 professional derma rolling treatments so far. I understand why you want to move forward with caution. I think rolling would be a good choice. I don't see how proper derma rolling could further damage your skin. Good luck!

This claim was spread by the owner of a laser/Botox/Dysport clinic and has been thoroughly debunked: forums.owndoc.com/dermarolling-microneedling/long-term-dermis-damage-for-temporary-gains/

This is shocking! If this is true (and it does seem to make sense), why hasn't anyone commented on this post? There's a fortune being made in DermaRollers and they're making us look older in the long term.

We need way more reviews on derma rolling by the public not the manufactures . Don't believe any site selling something . Look for independent reviews and real stories . Be careful of false posts from companies doing there own pr via word of mouth ( forums)

No, it is scaremongering to sell more Dysport, Botox and Laser treatments. The person who spread that nonsense has been exposed and his claims thoroughly debunked: forums.owndoc.com/dermarolling-microneedling/long-term-dermis-damage-for-temporary-gains/

Oh by the way as mentioned I am a laser damage victim , if I find any solutions including dermal rolling or anything else that works, be sure I WILL be posting . Laser has destroyed my life at 23 . Would do anything to fix it , but I'm so deeply immobilised by fear of making it worse .
