Technique for rolling
- DO NOT use the derma roller if you are pregnant, suffer from an autoimmune disease, or have a metal allergy.
- DO NOT use the roller on broken skin, bruised skin or moles.
- DO NOT use the roller if you are under the age of 18.
- DO NOT use the roller on active acne or infected skin as it will spread infection around your face.
- Always use the roller at night as your skin repairs best in the evening.
- Never share your derma roller.
- Always dry thoroughly and never use a rusty roller.
- Rollers should be replaced every 12 weeks or earlier if damaged or broken.
- DO NOT apply any pressure when using the roller, the skin should not be broken or blood drawn during the treatment.
- We recommend that you start using the roller 2-3 times a week and build up to nightly as your skin becomes used to the treatment.
- The roller should be sanitised using a sanitiser of 70% alcohol or greater before every use. The sanitiser should be washed off with boiling water before using on your skin to avoid irritation.
Skin may be a little pink after rolling and products may cause tingling when applied after needling, this is normal. Redness should subside in a few hours or overnight. There should be no downtime with this treatment, if you have severe or prolonged redness you are over needling and should cease treatment immediately.
- Cleanse skin thoroughly and remove all traces of make up. Pat skin dry.
- Scald roller in hot water prior to use to remove all trace of sanitiser. Dry roller.
- Roll the roller gently in a vertical or horizontal direction over the skin of your face and neck for approx 5mins always lifting the roller off your skin before changing direction.
- Apply your serum of choice.
- Needle over the skin again for 1-2mins to increase product penetration again avoiding any pressure.
- Always apply sun block in the morning after needling.
