Derma rollers are used for a treatment process called micro-needling or skin needling. It is a form of collagen induction therapy. The actual derma roller is made up of a small, solid wheel attached to a little stick that propels it backwards and forwards across your face in small sections. The roller is covered with hundreds of minuscule ‘micro-medical’ needles that penetrate the skin, creating lots of tiny micro injuries. Your skin responds by producing extra collagen to ‘heal’ the punctures, and that’s what plumps up the skin again and enhances the natural blood supply – so you get a natural ‘glow’. Depressed acne scars, wrinkles, skin texture and tightness are all improved as a result.
Stop all applications 2 days prior to the treatment day.
Use sunscreen regularly before the start of the treatment.
If you are on any kind of medication, share all details with the doctor performing the procedure.
Avoid direct sun exposure after the treatment. Use sun screen regularly, SPF 30+ or as advised.

You can wash your face 6-8 hours after the procedure, but we recommend using a gentle face wash.
Post the procedure, remember to use a moisturizer every 6 hrs, for a period of at least 3 days.
Avoid applying any applications for 3 days after the treatment.
