Using acidic products after rolling
« on: January 20, 2010, 01:43:00 PM »
People have been asking about the difference between our vit. A & D ointment and Retin A. Our ointment contains Retinol Acetate instead of Retin A (containing Retinoic Acid).

You can use Retin A but I would not recommend it right after the rolling or even some days later. Retin A is too acidic to be used on "open" or newly regenerating skin. Retinol Acetate brings just as much vitamin A into the skin as Retinoic Acid does, without the damage of the acid.


  Vitamin C is essential as is vit. A. You should make homemade vit. C serum according to our instructions and regularly use it on your skin. Vit. C stays in the skin for up to 70 hours so you don't have to do it every day.


  Don't put vit. C on your skin just after rolling with long needles because vit. C is acidic. You should use vit. C on the days before you roll and you can restart when the skin rolled with 1.5 mm is completely healed.
