how about wrist creases?
« on: February 22, 2010, 04:01:33 PM »
I've been doing yoga pretty actively for a year now and i don't want my wrist creases to get much worse than they are (not bad at all but...) Can you use dermarolling on skin creases like wrist creases and maybe near the elbow/forearm? I was thinking of trying it but just wondering if it's contraindicated for any reason -- uneven texture or will i create a scar-type appearance?

Thanks again for all your prompt help.

The only part of the body where a dermaroller cannot be used are the upper eyelids.

  However if the veins on your wrists or elsewhere are very near to the surface, then you must be careful with long needles and do not push them too deep.

  Skin creases in the wrist, elbow or elsewhere are formed by constant movements of the joints when the skin has to constantly stretch and crease. You cannot prevent crease formation but you can try to improve the skin texture and elasticity by dermarolling the skin and supplying it with vit. C and A.

 

  In addition you can buy vit. E capsules, prick them and use that oil on your skin and buy Panthenol spray or cream to supply the skin externally with vit. B5.

  Dry brushing the creases until they get red every now and then could also be very beneficial.

You should also make a mixture of salt or sugar with oil and use that mixture to scrub your skin. You can scrub your whole body like that, scrub gently on the sensitive body areas such as the breasts and push harder in the hardened skin areas such as the knees, elbows or heels.

  After such scrub, use a 1.5 mm dermaroller.

  Scrub once a week and apply vitamins afterwards.
