DermaRoller Guide

This is how I use my dermaroller Materials to use:

  • dermaroller
  • cotton balls
  • alcohol
  • spray bottle
  • ice cubes
  • vitamin E
  • lemon (for the next day)
  • antibacterial ointment



  • clean the area you will be using for rolling
  • disinfect the table or top where you will be placing all you materials
  • disinfect your dermaroller by using alcohol or any antiseptic solution of your choice.
  • leave it for atleast 30 minutes to completely sterilize the needles.
  • during this time I usually clean my face or skin where I will be doing the rolling.  I use mild soap, because I will also be using alcohol to disinfect my skin and this will dry the skin.
  • after completely cleaning and disinfecting my skin
  • I use the ice cubes on my skin as a numbing agent.  I do not want to use any chemicals on my skin, as a massage therapist and holistic in nature I always want it in a natural way.
  • when my skin get numb
  • shake the excess alcohol on the dermaroller and start rolling.
  • (at first I tried to follow the instruction guide that came with the dermaroller kit)
  • do not press the dermaroller too much on your skin, the needles will do it own pricking while you are rolling and we do not want to draw blood.
  • when you get your own technique in dermarolling you can do your own directions that is comfortable to you.
  • when  you are done rolling wipe off with cotton balls with disinfectant
  • let the disinfectant dry and apply your vitamin E or any cream of your choice or when you think you did it too much and you draw blood use you antibacterial ointment.lemon
  • Let it seat for more than 10 hours and you can apply lemon juice.  I normally use lemon juice because it has disinfecting power and also helps in evening out skin tone.

After The Treatment

  • clean and sterilize the dermaroller by running it through the water.  Do this for for 60 seconds
  • using a spray bottle with alcohol, spray around the roller making sure you to cover every parts roller.
  • store in a clean sterilized container.


  • use sun screen protection when going out all the time
  • or use BB Cream
  • depends on the size of the needle you can (less than 1mm) roller everyday.
  • but never roll daily if the roller is more than 1mm.
  • ask your dermatologist for the right size of the needle to use when rolling.
  • always follow the instruction on the manufacturer’s guide.
