DERMA ROLLER – INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Take a shower or wash the area to be rolled. Cleanse your hands and the Brinea Derma Roller using alcohol which evaporates in a very short period of time. When applying the roller the effects will differ from person to person. Most people feel minor discomfort and also most people feel a pleasing “tightening” sensation after the application. If you think you will feel pain apply an ice pack or numbing cream to the area. When rolling, stretch the skin by pulling it with the other hand –it will make needle penetration much easier.
Roll maximum 5 times each, horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Back and forth equals 2 rolls. Lift the derma roller slightly to change the angle of rolling and move back to the beginning. This will ensure that you do not move the roller in the same puncture marks. Use medium pressure everywhere on your body other than the eyes.
If you roll with 0.5 mm needles or shorter no special after care is needed. If you roll with needles longer than 0.5 mm then the skin will turn red like sunburn –the area will be sensitive and might get swollen for several hours on sensitive skin. Keep the area moist for the first couple of days. The best choice to cover the area is an ointment containing vitamin A and D. Do not expose the rolled area to the sun for several days. Wait for 2 or 3 days before applying makeup.
The rolled area might start peeling after some days. Do not pull the loose skin off. Collagen production is a very slow process. Do not expect miracles too soon. Some people get quick results. Results also depend on the area and treated and the severity of damage. It can take up to 10 months to get substantial results.
How to Clean Your Brinea Derma Roller
Gently wash your Derma Roller in warm water and dish-washing liquid. Soak it in disinfecting alcohol for 20 minutes. Your Derma Roller kit comes with special cups that hold alcohol for this purpose. Dispose of the used alcohol after use. Keep the container clean with hot water. Keep a sponge or cloth away from any of the items for fear of bacterial infection.
