sensitive skin - What kind of derma roller to use?
« on: September 09, 2011, 01:37:31 PM »
Hi,

I am going to post an order because I wanna try the needling procedure.

I have very fair and thin skin with some red veins on the cheeks. Is it safe to needle? What kind of derma roller should I start with? BTW, I am in my late 30s I do not have wrinkles except for some crow's feet. Lets say that my skin is more prone to sagging rather than wrinkling.. I hope derma roller can improve on this side too.

Thanks a lot

Sandra

Having no wrinkles in one's thirties is quite rare, you are lucky.

I would recommend you to buy a 1 mm dermaroller (it reaches the dermis) and use it every two weeks on the same skin area. The A-Ret gel and vit. C would be also very useful in your case. Since you have red veins and sensitive skin, you should avoid skin irritation, therefore do not apply the A-Ret gel more than twice a week (a pea-sized amount is enough for a whole face) and vit. C three times a week.

Dear Sarah,

thanks for your reply.

Should I use the derma roller over the red veins? Do I need a numbing solution?

Thanks for answering.

Ale

I have another question. Can I use the derma roller over my arms to stimulate the new collagen and make the skin look better? same question for the hands where the skin became thinner because of aging and sun exposure.

If yes, what kind of derma roller should I use?

Thanks

Yes, you can use a dermarolller over the red capillaries, the skin will get

temporarily more red after dermarolling but it will quickly subside. I do

not think you will need a numbing cream. It will be painful but bearable.

You may need a numbing cream in the area above the lips, since from my

experience this is the most painful area from the whole face and body to

roll.

Yes, you can use a dermaroller on your arms. A dermaroller can be used

anywhere on the skin with the exception of the upper eyelids (danger of eye

injury). Our customers are getting excellent results rolling their sun

damaged décolleté for example. You can use your 1 mm dermaroller on your

arms.

Thanks Sarah for your reply.

yesterday I placed an order and added also a 0.2 mm derma roller just to start with the mildest and then move up to the 1 mm
