Selecting a size will depend on your skin type, experience, and the result you're trying to obtain. However, a general rule is to always start with a smaller size like the 0.25mm dermaroller to help your skin ease into the treatment.

Gin Amber Beauty dermaroller needles are made of surgical stainless steel (which is why they are so sharp).
With proper execution and using a real dermaroller, it's not as painful as it seems! Using real dermarollers creates even punctures rather than tears that harm the skin making the experience better and with guaranteed results through continuous use. There are also ways to minimize the discomfort like applying a numbing cream.
We strongly recommend using each roller (any size) no more than 10 times. With each use the dermaroller needles will dull and degenerate, you want the sharpest needles possible for the correct action to stimulate new growth. For that reason, we have included a grid on our dermaroller boxes where you can mark off and keep track after each use.
Always consider what to apply after because not only is our skin more sensitive, this can also affect the healing process. Our serums, creams, and sheet masks (except Retinol) have been specifically developed to be safe to use after dermarolling. Each has its own targeted benefits but can also work together to boost efficiency and overall improve our skin's appearance.
We do not recommend using most retinol products after dermarolling. But you CAN use Gin Amber Beauty’s specially formulated Retinol serum if you wait to apply for at least 1 hour after you finished your dermaroller session.
It is generally recommended to use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for disinfection, but it causes dryness, irritation, and damages the skin's protective barrier. Other alternatives like Witch Hazel does not disinfect the dermaroller completely. So in 2022, Gin Amber Beauty has developed a TOXIC-FREE and gentle way to disinfect the dermaroller and skin. For disinfecting the skin, Apply a pump of Foam Therapy to your fingertips and gently spread it onto your skin. Allow the foam to remain for at least 1 minute to help eliminate germs and residue. It's important to let the Foam Therapy break down completely, as contact time is vital for optimal results. After a minute has passed, gently wipe your skin with a dry or damp cloth, but do not rinse it off.
For disinfecting the dermaroller, Apply 2-3 pumps of Foam Therapy to your dermaroller. Let it sit on an open case and allow the foam to break down completely. Contact time is vital for optimal results in eliminating germs and residue. After the foam has settled down, you do not need to wipe your microneedling tool. Apply 2-3 pumps of Foam Therapy again after the treatment to sanitize the roller after use
Yes, it comes in a plastic protective case. When you initially open the roller, it will be in a hygienically sealed wrapping.
Your dermarolling session should last no longer than 10 minutes, including your neck area. If you do not dermaroll on your neck, 7 minutes is enough for the face.
This depends on the size of the roller that you used: With a 0.25 and 0.5 mm dermaroller you can do it the next morning, or after about 12 hours. With a 1.0 mm, it is recommended to wait a full day, 24 hours.
Yes, both of these outcomes are typical reactions to the action of dermarolling. The longer the needle tip, the longer these responses might last, because of deeper penetration. In general redness should last no longer than 12 hours, and the “sunburn” sensation should last no more than 24 hours.
Microneedle therapy is a long-term, cumulative process. Permanent reduction in wrinkles and scars occurs when new collagen and elastin are stimulated, and new skin is generated. You will usually see results within 4 to 8 treatments.
It is very rare to bleed with my dermarollers because of the spherical shape of the needles, and relatively shallow depth of GAB needles. The longer the needle, the more chance you have to experience very slight bleeding in areas where the skin is closer to bone. Generally clients do not experience any bleeding with our length needles. Bleeding is more common with wheel-style dermarollers.
It can take a while to get used to your dermarolling practice. Everyone’s skin and anatomy is different, so you will have to gauge your own response to dermarolling and how often you want to go over certain areas. Maybe you will want to concentrate on particular areas of concern.
