Sore skin after dermarolling
« on: June 07, 2013, 07:50:36 AM »
When I use the 1mm roller every eleven days. The next day, my face is still very red and under the eyes and at the side of my mouth are a bit swollen.  It also feels a bit itchy.
Is this normal?  Apart from Infadolan, I do not put anything else on after rolling.
Thanks.

This is completely normal. Redness, mild swelling, itchiness, dryness and tenderness are normal reactions. In some, these reactions last just hours and in some they last two days. In case of aggressive treatments like single needling, they can last even longer. The longer the needles the longer it lasts.

After dermarolling, wash the skin with tap water, let dry and apply Infadolan. Apply Infadolan until the skin is back to normal and even after that, keep it moisturized with a cream of your choice.

If the skin reactions are very unpleasant for you, make the gaps between rolling longer than eleven days.
