New to dermarolling...very painful..question
« on: October 19, 2013, 11:43:47 PM »

I'm new to derma rolling and have just started using a .5mm roller . I am rolling my face and neck to increase elasticity and decrease the only two wrinkles that I have (smile lines). I find rolling with eve this small roller to be very painful and am going to buy some numbing cream because I also want o use a 1mm and a 1.5 mm one in awhile,. My questions is: how many times do I roll over the same spot? The video that I saw said 6 to 8 times, but should it only be once horizontally and once vertically? I'm a little confused.

Thanks for the help!

How to roll is explained in our instructions (page 18 & 19).

You either move the roller a very small amount to the side and only roll the surface once, or you roll about eight times "randomly".
All you need to be aware of is to make a high prick density, and not to go over the same tracks more than once.

This is the most difficult to explain clearly. I spent hours writing it down and changing it, and I think many people still don't understand.
I am not good at explaining things..
