This is how I use my dermaroller Materials to use:
- cotton balls
- 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.
- 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.
