Welcome to Brinea’s FAQ
Pilaten removes all skin impurities (whiteheads/blackheads, etc). Pilaten does not help with acne as that means that there is an active infection and Pilaten cannot remove that infection.
Please try a small patch to make sure that there is no allergic reaction, if you have a very sensitive skin. Otherwise, race doesn’t make a difference to whether you are able to use the Pilaten mask.
Steam the face to be applied to first to make sure that the pores are open. Pat dry so as not to stress the pores. Finally, apply Pilaten. Leave a thicker edge on the outside of the area as this makes it easier to peel off.
At this point in time there have been no reported negative effects on pregnant ladies. However, please consult your doctor before making use of this product.
If at any point this product has an allergic reaction, wash off immediately and discontinue use. No allergies or negative effects have been recorded .
DO NOT wear makeup or sunscreen immediately after treatment because they will absorb deeply into your skin through the micro-punctures/micro-channels from the micro-needles.
It is best to wait 24 hr for your micro-channels to close up or for your skin to calm down before applying makeup or sunscreen.
Derma Rolling will not remove the bags under your eyes, but you can use it to treat wrinkles around your eyes. Use with light pressure only. Do not attempt another treatment until full recovery.
NEVER use 1.0 mm needles or longer!
The Derma Roller won’t be 100% effective on cellulite. It breaks down and renews collagen fibers.
Cellulite is a fatty tissue. It has nothing to do with collagen.
The collagen will have a slight plumping effect on the affected area, but we recommend exercise in conjunction with use of the Derma Roller.
Lips in good condition get full benefit. Be sure to exfoliate your lips on a daily basis. Wait until the wax is completely dry for best results. Once peeled off apply lip-balm.
The color will usually last for 8 hours, but if your lips are well exfoliated then it can last up to 24 hours.
This depends on how much pressure you use on the Derma Roller. Most people reported mild pricking sensation, but the majority of people have no problem with the pain. If you have very sensitive skin, you can apply a numbing cream before treatment.
With proper handling, each roller head should last 6-7 months with weekly use for 0.5mm. It is highly recommended to treat your skin once or twice per month with 0.75 to 1.0mm. Therefore your roller should last at least 1 year.
If you are a Beginner, it is EXTREMELY important to AVOID using 1.5 mm or longer needles on your face. They are for body treatment or for professional usage.
- Use 0.25 mm for boosting the absorption of topical products.
- Use 0.5 mm for mild wrinkles, scarring and sun damage.
- Use 0.75 mm for fine lines, mild scarring, hyper-pigmentation marks.
- Use 1.0 mm for deep winkles, deep scars, hyper-pigmentation marks, stretch marks and chicken pox scars.
Multiple treatments are necessary to achieve significant improvement. Treatment effects are cumulative. All skin is different so we can’t give a definite time frame. Usually you will see results each week as the skin changes due to collagen regeneration. 2 to 6 months are required for deep scars and wrinkles.
Do not use the Derma Roller if you have active acne. Derma rolling can spread acne bacteria around your face and trigger a breakout. Also, if you have diabetes or cold sores, you can use at risk of getting an infection.
There were studies conducted on the efficacy of derma rolling when it comes to hair regrowth. Based on its results, the Derma Roller can trigger the production of growth hormone and other chemicals that promote new hair. It can also boost the absorption of topical treatment products.
Micro-needling becomes tremendously effective if combined with hair regrowth products like the FEG Hair Regrowth Solution.
You can sterilize your Derma Roller using Isopropyl Alcohol (aka Surgical Spirits / Rubbing Alcohol) or Hydrogen Peroxide. Isopropyl Alcohol (aka Surgical Spirits / Rubbing Alcohol) is highly recommended.
If you only want to boost the absorption of topical skin care products, then 0.25 mm, 0.3 mm or even 0.5mm needle size is recommended.
If you want to treat shallow imperfections and stimulate collagen production on a “weekly basis”, then 0.5mm roller is an ideal choice for you.
If you are treating “moderate to deep” scars, wrinkles and stretch marks on the face, then 0.75 mm – 1.0 mm size is preferred.
Needle length with 1.5 mm and above should be avoided for use on the face! They are designed for the body areas or for professional usage.
Important Note : Improper use of 1.5 mm – 3.0 mm needles on your face can undesirable side effects on your skin. AVOID THEM unless you are a trained professional.
The Dermaroller should last more than 15 treatments with proper handling. But if you accidentally drop the roller and bend the needles, it is highly advisable to dispose of it immediately.
If you are treating your body, you might need to replace your roller every 2 to 3 months. Your roller can become dull quicker by penetrating thicker skin on your body.
It is vital to note that sharing a dermaroller is not recommended and can be risky.
Rolling every other day can be done with 0.25 mm to 0.3 mm needle length only, but it is advised to wait several days for your skin to heal before another treatment.
For 0.5mm roller, you can use it once per week or once per month.
If you are using a needle length of 0.75mm and above, it is highly recommended waiting 4 to 6 weeks before next treatment. Your skin needs at least 30 days for a full recovery.
There will be a slight bleeding because you are puncturing your skin with needles. This can also be the result of applying too much pressure when derma rolling. DO NOT PANIC! Bleeding is very common when using a Derma Roller. You should always apply light to moderate pressure.
Generally, derma rolling is not painful at all, but most users have experienced mild pricking sensations. The longer the needle length, the more intense the sensation. Additionally, you can apply numbing cream before treatment to eliminate any pain.
Some clinics and patients use Vitamin C or collagen serums after the treatment. They are said to enhance results. Many experts also suggest the application of antibacterial cream after treatment to prevent risks of infection and speed up recovery.
Micro-needle rollers were originally meant to solve skin problem on the face. But beauty clinics and existing users have tested it on other body parts and skin problems as well.
Derma rolling is reported to be effective in improving stretch marks. Stretch marks are similar to scars and deep wrinkles. They are formed by the loss of collagen and skin elasticity.
Derma rolling acne scars can trigger the production of new collagen and elastin as well as the thickening of your epidermis in only 1 treatment. The correct needle size for the effective treatment of stretch marks is 1.0 mm and above.
Is it effective for cellulite? There is no research done on cellulite. Many studies are performed on wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Dermal rolling can help improve the appearance of your cellulite, but you shouldn’t expect drastic results. Many sellers will hate me for saying this.

Brinea 3D Fiber Lashes+ are totally NON-allergenic.
If you are experiencing irritation from fibers falling into your eye, remember that the fiber will fall into the eye if too much is used.
Rather apply sparingly; another layer may be added if you are not satisfied with your first application results.
The Fiber is to be applied sparingly when first applying 3D Fiber Lashes+ Mascara, until you are sure of the effect you wish to create.
If you apply one layer and that is not enough, you simply repeat the steps again:
- Gel, etc.
Yes. The fibers are included to use if you would like to increase the volume of your lashes (longer, fuller lashes). If you would like to only use the gel without the fiber, then apply as you would normally and allow to dry (like regular mascara).
