Dermarolling works by creating microscopic wounds that induce collagen and elastin production. If you didn't know, collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and is responsible for holding together connective tissue like skin, muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones.
This lovely protein is also what keeps us looking young and gorgeous. Unfortunately, collagen production slows down by about 1% per year after the age of 20, which translates to the big A word — ageing.
Despite how terrifying dermarolling may seem, it's actually considered a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime. Our 6 in one roller includes 3 roller heads (.5mm - 1mm - 1.5mm and a 1mm stamp) They have been specially designed for home use and are safe, convenient and easy to use.
Step 1: Disinfect your roller
Disinfect your derma roller by letting it soak in surgical spirits for approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 2: Wash your face
Cleanse your face using a gentle cleanser
Step 3: Begin derma rolling
The technique is very important, so listen closely! Splitting up your face into sections makes the whole process easier.
Roll in one direction 6 to 8 times, depending on your skin tolerance and sensitivity, and make sure to lift the roller after each pass. So, roll in one direction. Lift up. Repeat.
Lift the derma roller after each pass.
- After you roll in the same place 6 to 8 times, adjust the derma roller slightly, and repeat. Do this until you've covered the entire section of skin you're treating.
- After rolling in one direction, it's time to go back over the area you just rolled and repeat the process in the perpendicular direction. For example, say you finished rolling across your forehead vertically, now would be the time to go back and repeat that entire process horizontally.
- By the end of this entire procedure, you should have rolled over each area 12 to 16 times — 6 to 8 horizontally, 6 to 8 vertically.
Step 4: Wash your face with water
After you're done microneedling, rinse your face with water only.
Step 5: Clean your Derma Roller
Clean your derma roller with dishwasher soap. Create a soapy water mix in a plastic container, then swish around the roller vigorously, making sure the roller doesn't hit the sides. The reason we use detergents like dish soap directly after rolling is because alcohol doesn’t dissolve the proteins found in skin and blood.
Step 6: Disinfect your roller
Disinfect your roller again by letting it soak in a surgical spirit solution for for 10 minutes. Put it back in its case, give it a kiss, and store it somewhere safe.
Step 7: Nourish and treat your skin with your favourite Het Gorgeous products
Cross channels in your skin created by the roller allow for improved product penetration so this is a great time to treat your skin with your favourite serum or mask.
How often you derma roll also depends on the length of needles you’ll be using. Below is the maximum amount of times you can use a derma roller within a given time frame.
