Before Derma Rolling
It’s important to remember that the derma roller is a safe and effective tool but you do need to take the required steps to ensure you are using it correctly.
First things first you need to ensure your hands, and the area to be treated is clean. Wash your hands with soap, and your face with your usual cleanser and pat with a towel to dry.
Next you will need to remove your derma roller from the packaging and run it under hot water to clean it. Once dry, grab a simple alcohol solution spray (available at your local chemist) and spray the wheel of the roller to ensure it is disinfected.
Once your instrument is dry it is now time to start using your roller!
When to Roll
We recommend rolling in the evening or before bed for a couple of reasons:
The first being, the effectiveness of your Dermarol is due to the healing process of the body after micro channels have been created in your skin. Thus it is really important to let your skin heal and recover with rest post treatment.
It is also important to keep you skin clean after derma rolling. This is easier done at night, rather than during the day where you may sweat in the heat, or be exposed to dirt, bacteria and the sun in your day to day hustle.
Furthermore, derma rolling can often leave your skin to appear slightly red after use. Though after a fruitful nights sleep, the redness will fade to leave your skin appearing plump, clear and glowing – its just like magic.
