WHAT IS A DERMA ROLLER?
Derma rollers have become increasingly popular over the last decade, and many women and men use them for all sorts of skin-related problems: acne, scars cellulite, stretch marks, anti-aging, wrinkles, and even hyper-pigmentation.
A term (skin) roller is a small barrel-like roller with around 200 tiny micro-needles that, when rolled on the skin, create tiny punctures in it, pushing the pores open for a short period of time. The body reacts as if it has been damaged, releasing growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, forming new, healthy skin. The roller can be used on almost any part of the body, except the eyelids and lips.
Before you use derma roller, please do the 3 steps:
- Check the needles heads of the dermaroller, if there is a needle bent / twisted / broken, please don’t use the derma roller anymore because it will create more new scars, you have to throw it to dustbin and go buy a new dermaroller. If you feel 1 or 2 needles pulling your skin when you are derma rolling your skin, you MUST stop using it, because there is 1 or 2 bent. Needles. You will find out the bent needles if you check all the needles carefully.
- Wash the derma roller with soap & water (me and most of my customers also do it, but some other perfectionist people want perfect clean, they use salt water or 75% alcohol to clean it).
- Wash your face with facial cleanser before you start dermoarooling your face.
