The Do's and Dont's of Dermarolling!

Dos ​

  • Disinfect before and after the procedure - Spray your roller's head thoroughly with our disinfectant spray and leave to air dry for 10 minutes.

  • You may disinfect your face as well prior to the procedure with rubbing alcohol

  • Use your roller in a star pattern, five times in each direction - 5 times vertically, 5 times horizontally, 5 times diagonally each inclination; and make sure to always lift up your roller each time so the needle won't be insisting in the same "micro-hole" over and over again

  • Be careful with the products you apply afterwards - you should avoid products with strong and irritant active ingredients (avoid essential oils, acids, retinol or retinol-type ingredients, highly fragranced formulas and/or comedogenic ingredients)

  • Apply gentle and calming products for hyper sensitive skin types like our vitamin c serum.

  • Do apply a SPF 50 the following morning and every day whilst using this treatment.

  • antidepressants

  • anticoagulants

  • any medication that may increase skin sensitivity

  • drugs that decrease healing

  • drugs that cause hyper or hypopigmentation

  • Share your dermaroller - that is you personal tool and you should not share it with anyone as you'd not share a mascara, toothbrush and such
