The Aftermath of rolling your beard
It’s normal for your face to look a bit red and sore – this is simply the normal and appropriate skin response. In fact, it’s a sign that the Dermaroller is working. The redness will be most visible on light Caucasian skin. For most fair skins the inflammation will diminish by 50 % within 4 to 6 hours. All signs of the inflammation usually fade away completely within 48 hours.
Your skin may feel a little tingly and in rare cases some slight burning sensations. For a fast-acting cool relief you can use a face mask containing hyaluronic acid. You can expect almost immediate relief from any redness and burning.
Avoid using skincare lotions that contain aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is a known DHT inhibitor and will most likely undo the good results you’re wanting to achieve.
Before and After
Does Dermarolling always work?
That will depend on a range of factors including your physiological makeup and the reasons why your beard growth isn’t as full as you would like it. Success also depends on how consistent you are in your application.
You may also need to experiment with things like needle length but remember the Dermaroller needles should never exceed 1mm.
How long does it take to work?
Again, each person is different but usually you can expect to notice results very quickly maybe even within a week or two. You can expect to see more hairs and they will be thicker, stronger and often richer coloured too.
Before and after examples
A 2013 study published in the International Journal of Trichology demonstrates the dramatic improvement the Dermarolling offers. The below before and after images show typical improvements experienced by the subjects in the study.
If you’re not happy with your beard it may be time to try the Dermaroller; the results will speak for themselves.
