How to derma roll properly

Gently roll over your skin with your derma roller in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal direction three to four times per area. If you are using it on your face, roll it twice on your forehead, cheeks, lips, chin and neck. No need for you to press it too hard because you may induce pain and or puncture the skin. Apply just enough pressure as you can comfortably tolerate. Take extra care when rolling underneath your eyes and lip area because these areas are too sensitive. Do not apply any serum or roll over the eyelids. 

How often can I roll my skin?

One of the common questions of first-timers is how often do they have to use derma rollers? Actually, there is no fixed or hard rule as to when your next session will be. You may use derma rollers as often as few times a week or you may use it once a month, depending on your preference and the area to be rolled. The principle here is that you should have an occasional derma rolling session to stimulate the repair process of the skin to continue healing until your skin achieves the cosmetic level. 

Start rolling twice a week for 2 weeks, then add a third night for a further two weeks. Build up a night until you can roll every night.

Not every skin can tolerate rolling 7 nights per week so allow your skin to adjust and do what is comfortable for your own skin. 

How to clean your derma roller

If you plan to use derma roller at home, you have to make sure that your derma rolling area is clean and sanitised. You need to disinfect the table area where you need to put your derma roller. From there, you also need to put the device on a sterile area to prevent any contamination and spread of any infection. You may use isopropyl alcohol or sanitizer. 

Rinse under boiling water and place sanitiser on the roller. Leave it to rest for around 10-15 minutes.

Wash the sanitiser off the device with warm water, then boiling water again and leave to dry completely before storing away. Do not leave to soak overnight. Do this after every use.

Always store your derma roller in the case it comes in. 

Maintenance check

Its important you check your derma rollers for any needle breakage 

Home care derma rollers can be used for several months. Just make sure that you regularly check the rollers, if it is still in good condition. If the needles break, dispose of it immediately or else it may be left in your skin while rolling which can cause inflammation and infection. 

Don’t be shy to ask  

Being a first-time user, you may have lots of doubts about the product. If you have any doubts, don’t hesitate to ask, so you can get good and appropriate advice.

Ask an expert

Make sure that when you ask, you go for the right person. Ask our professional Skin Therapist if you have any doubts about the treatment plan. 

Be patient in your recovery time 

You may experience minor shedding or tightness and this is normal. Apply extra moisturiser or serum for the next couple of nights and always wear SPF during the daytime. 

Safety First

Never use the same Derma roller for other parts of the body i.e. face or scalp. Separate rollers should be used. Never ever share a Derma roller with another person. 

What to expect after treatment

Normal response to expect after Derma roller treatment is redness and heat due to increased blood flow. Other responses can include tingling sensation, minor shedding and tightness.
