MICRO-NEEDLING AT HOME
The needles for an at-home micro-needling devices are typically not any deeper than 3mm. We do not recommend at home needling with anything deeper. At-home micro-needling uses shorter needles and can effectively help to reduce pore size, oil production, and fine lines. To use an at-home micro-needling roller, read all instructions, sanitize the device, carefully glide it over your skin, and clean and store the device properly following treatment.
The Environ Derma Roller is Health Canada Approved and comes in a sterilized container. NEVER BUY A CHEAP AND UNSTERILIZED ROLLER. The needles can get stuck in your skin and who knows how they were handled prior to packaging. Needles should always be stainless steel and can tolerate alcohol post treatment to keep the roller sterile. Your roller should also last at least a year.
Do not share your microneedling device with other family members of friends This should be considered a personal device.
Wash your face and remove makeup before use.
Before you begin the treatment, wash your face and remove all makeup. Wash your face using a gentle cleanser. This will help remove all dirt, grime, and makeup from the surface of your skin. You do not want any bacteria to get into the skin as a result of the microneedling process. As a result, you should always begin with a clean face. Pat your face dry after washing.
Apply a vitamin C gel or medical grade skin care product to your face. Needling will help get the product to penetrate much deeper into the sink.
Visualize your face in sections.
Mentally divide your face into approximately six sections. You do not need to mark your face. For example, you could try mentally dividing into the following sections: forehead, cheeks, chin, eye area, nose, and upper lip. This will help to ensure that you adequately cover the entire surface of your face and will help to break up the procedure. If desired, you can also use a microneedling device on your neck and upper chest.
Glide the Derma Roller across your face.
Turn on the device and gently glide the roller across your face. You should move the roller vertically, horizontally, and diagonally across the surface of your skin. This should be done in stripes covering each section of your face. While moving the roller across your face, use your other hand to pull your skin tight. This will make it easier to maneuver the device. Do not go over the same section of skin too many times in 1 sitting. It is recommended that you do not pass over the same patch of skin more than 10 times per treatment.
Do not apply too much pressure. When using the microneedling roller do not apply too much pressure. Instead, you should apply light to moderate pressure. It may tingle or feel slightly uncomfortable at first, but it will not damage your skin and should not cause bleeding.
Do not wash your face for 6 to 8 hours following treatment.
Although microneedling does not damage your skin, it will likely be red and tender immediately following the treatment. Allow your skin to rest and do not wash your face for at least 6 to 8 hours.
Avoid using makeup for 24 hours, but make sure that you use sunblock if you will be out in the sun.
Disinfect the micro-needling device.
Once you are finished using the device, rinse the needles under warm water and place it into a bowl of rubbing alcohol. This will disinfect the device of any bacteria that it may have picked up on the surface of the skin. It is very important that you keep the microneedling device clean and sanitary.
Store the micro-needling device in its original case.Following the cleansing process, store your microneedling device in its original case. This will help to ensure that the needles do not break or get damaged and will also keep the needles relatively clean between uses.
