Step By Step Derma Roller Instructions

Step 1. Cleaning
Cleanse the skin well with a cleanser that’s suitable to your skin type. Before every skin needling treatment rinse the derma roller head under hot running water.

Step 2. Numbing
Before applying the numbing agent, needle the skin with the derma roller 1-2 times, this will allow the numbing solution to absorb to skin better as it is meant to be used on broken skin.

After slight skin needling, apply a few drops of the numbing solution on the skin. You may use your finger tips or a cotton swap for this. Our numbing agent has instant effect, so you may wipe off the excess liquid as soon as the numb sensation comes.

Step 3. Derma Rolling
Pull the skin a little tight with the hand not holding the derma roller. With the other hand, start rolling the derma roller in one direction from left to right, top to bottom, and diagonally distributing even pressure as seen on the picture below.

Be careful not to impose too much needle pressure in the direction. Especially, you must avoid imposing excessive stimulation on the eye area and cheekbones.

Step 4. Skin Care
Apply the appropriate skin care serum evenly on the treated area. Leave it on skin for atleast 20-30 minutes before applying other skin care products.

Step 5. Moisturizing & Soothing
Apply a soothing and moisturizing solution or facial mask on the stimulated, red area.

Step 6. After care
After every use rinse the derma roller head under hot running water. For better disinfecting, a pure alcohol may also be used, preferably with atleast 70% alcohol (leave the skin roller head in to the alcohol for a few minutes, not longer), you may always use a disinfectant solutions that are available at house-hold stores.

It is important to keep treated area out of the sun in the first week after treatment. A SPF30+ sunscreen is recommended, along with collagen-enriching creams that are fortified with Vitamins A and C.

Should the skin feel sensitive after a skin needling treatment, it is advised not to use the derma roller again until the skin feels comfortable. The tiny holes formed from the skin needling, in the horny layer seal naturally within a day. Should you suffer from a skin rash or irritation as a result of using the product, cease to use the product and please consult a skin care professional or medical doctor.

One of the most often asked question is that how often should the derma roller be used.

We try to make it pretty simple for you to decide how often to use a dermaroller based on what needle length derma roller you are using.

Natural Skin Renewal Takes Time
Needling your skin too often, will not give you better results. Why not? Think about it, like when you cut your finger, it takes time to heal. The tiny wounds created by the derma roller during skin needling also need time to heal and build collagen. Even when they are so much smaller than a knife cut, there is still time needed for your body to go through natural skin healing process.

Skin renewal & new collagen building continues for about 40 days after needling, this is also the main period to keep in mind when deciding how often to use a dermaroller.

Derma Rollers for Triggering Skin Regeneration
Do you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, acne scars or any other similar concern treated by skin needling? Then you probably use a derma roller with needles atleast 0.5 mm or even longer. Longer needle size derma rollers help to stimulate the new collagen building and skin renewal process.

As the collagen synthesis in your skin is entirely natural process, it takes time to occur like explained earlier. Do not disturb it by using the derma roller too often, be patient and use derma roller about once every 4-6 weeks.

Derma Rollers for Daily Use
You may use the 0.2 and 0.25 mm needle lengths daily for better skin care products absorption. These short needles will not promote new collagen building, but will help you benefit more from your skin care by helping them to absorb better.

Taking Care of Your Skin After Needling
Sometimes after needling, your skin may turn red, similar like when sunburned, feel sensitive or slightly swollen after few hours of the treatment. It is quite normal. Keep your treated skin well moisturized and avoid direct sunlight without quality sunscreen.

You may also notice some peeling after few days, moisturize your skin and don’t let it dry. Apply quality skin care solutions that include Vitamins A, C and E so your skin could benefit most of them to support the new collagen synthesis in your skin.
