Prepping Your Dermaroller
You will want to keep your dermaroller clean at all times, and you can do so by rinsing with isopropyl alcohol. Store in a case when not in use.
Clean your skin with a product that your skin responds well to. Gin Amber Beauty products are always recommended when using our dermarollers.
Use alcohol disinfecting wipes before you use your .5mm dermaroller. You can also use a numbing cream if it suits you.
Our dermaroller utilizes actual microneedle dermarollers in a streamlined apparatus that gets the best results for your complexion. Other dermarollers on the market are often made with cheap components, but Gin Amber Beauty products are the real deal!
Use horizontal strokes and vertical strokes and make sure to be thorough in your efforts. For instance, when starting on your forehead, use 5-6 strokes in each section. You will feel a pinching sensation at this stage of the process. Use vertical and horizontal lines on the forehead and diagonal lines on areas like the cheeks. When you reach your chin, use strokes that make a V-shape that meets at the bottom central point of your chin.
Pay attention to how it feels. If you're not feeling any sort of sensation, it's safe to say that you can use a little more pressure.
You don't have to press hard when you use your .5mm dermaroller. Mild pressure is okay, but make sure that you don't overdo it.
When finished, disinfect your .5mm dermaroller and store in its case.
Avoid sun at all cost. You will want to avoid harmful UV rays by staying indoors and/or wearing wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.
Do not exercise or use the sauna for 24 hours after you use your dermaroller. Your skin might dry and peel, but this is totally normal as your skin regenerates -- this is how you know it's working.
Wait to use harsher exfoliants for 3 days. Drink a lot of water to hydrate the skin and use eat water-heavy fruits and veggies -- like cucumber and watermelon.
