Trying your hand at derma rolling to improve your skill and skin in the process? You may have about the optimal pressure to apply when using a 0.30 mm derma roller for the best and safest results.
As a leading supplier of derma rolling tools for aesthetic practices, Face Med Store has extensive experience guiding patients on proper at-home derma rolling techniques.
Read on as we provide a complete guide to using a 0.30 mm derma roller, including recommendations on pressure, frequency of use, incorporating it into your skincare routine, and more.
How often should a 0.30 mm derma roller be used?
Using your derma roller too frequently can lead to skin damage, so it’s important to space out your treatments. For a 0.30 mm roller, we suggest using it every other day for optimal results. This is because the needles are small and do not cause significant skin damage that requires a long healing time.
Some people may be tempted to use their derma roller more often, like daily, to see faster improvements, this can actually be counterproductive. Irritating your skin too much defeats the purpose of promoting collagen production.
We recommend alternating it with other treatments like chemical peels or microneedling procedures. Combining different modalities allows you to improve your skin on multiple levels while avoiding over-exfoliation from the derma roller.
Our experience shows that every other day use of a 0.30 mm derma roller, interspersed with other treatments, provides noticeable improvements in skin texture, scars, and fine lines without side effects.
How hard should I roll a 0.30 mm derma roller to get the best results?
When using your 0.30 mm derma roller, the ideal pressure is between light and medium. You’ll want to apply enough pressure for the tiny needles to penetrate the outer layer of the skin and cause slight skin blanching. However, pressing too hard can lead to pain, bleeding, bruising, and even permanent scarring.
We suggest rolling with enough pressure to feel the needles stimulating your skin, without causing any pain. The level of pressure needed will depend partially on your individual pain tolerance and the thickness of your skin.
Focus on problem areas like acne scars or wrinkles and use a bit more controlled pressure there. But on delicate or sensitive areas, always err on the side of lighter pressure.
What’s important is finding the optimal pressure that induces collagen production and allows serums to absorb better, without excessive inflammation or damage. Start light, and slowly increase pressure based on your comfort level. The results will come, even with a gentle touch. Trust us, you don’t need to press hard to get the most out of your derma roller.
How to use a Hair Magna Roller?
Using a hair regrowth derma roller like the Hair Magna Roller requires proper technique for safety and optimal results. Here are our step-by-step usage recommendations:
- Sterilize the roller before each use by soaking it in 70% isopropyl alcohol for 5-10 minutes. This prevents infection.
A study by the CDC on the effectiveness of 70% isopropyl alcohol for disinfection of semi-critical materials found that it can be effective in eliminating microorganisms when used correctly.
- Consider using a numbing cream or taking an over-the-counter pain medication beforehand if you have a low pain tolerance. This can make the procedure more comfortable.
- Move the roller gently over the scalp, gliding in multiple directions – up/down, left/right, diagonally. Cover all areas needing treatment.
- Use moderate pressure, enough to feel the needles penetrating without excessive pain. Make 2-3 passes over each section of hair loss.
- Avoid rolling directly over moles, lesions, or sensitive areas prone to bleeding. Use caution around the hairline and sides of the head.
- After each use, apply a soothing serum containing hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, or growth factors to help the healing process.
- Store the roller in a clean, dry place in its protective case. Replace the device every 3-6 months for best results.
Proper sterilization, technique, and aftercare are essential when using any derma roller to minimize side effects. While the Hair Magna Roller is designed to stimulate hair follicles, patience and consistency over time are needed to see results.
