ARE THERE PLACES YOU SHOULD NEVER DERMAROLL?
It might seem like some of this is common sense, but we get questions about Dermarolling in the strangest places all too often. If you need a little more clarification on where NOT to Dermaroll, or if you want to get a good laugh at where some people have considered Dermarolling watch Gin Amber's latest video.
- Never Dermaroll over a large or changing mole.
- Never Dermaroll over bruises.
- Don't Dermaroll over warts.
ARE THERE TIMES/OCCASIONS YOU SHOULDN'T DERMAROLL?
More complicated is knowing WHEN not to Dermaroll. We've seen people on Youtube Dermarolling over makeup (especially lipstick or balm)--this is a very bad mistake. You want to ALWAYS have a completely clean, sterilized face. Although you don't bleed with the shorter length needles, you don't want to be opening channels in your skin where makeup, dirt, oil or bacteria can enter.
- Don't Dermaroll when you have a sunburn!
- Don't Dermaroll when you have active acne (it's fine once a lesion is well into healing).
- Don't Dermaroll when you are using Vitamin A products (see table below).
