Dermarollers have gone macro in the beauty world. Thanks to all the celebrities swearing by wonders of this amazing tool. But let us not deny the fact that beauty is pain and so is dermarolling. But with proper techniques, you can minimize the pain and discomfort caused by a dermaroller.
Whether it is makeup, skincare, or a dermaroller, you will likely see a ‘’best used before’’ label on nearly everything. Most beauty products and skincare has ‘’6m’’ or ‘’12m’’ label which means it can be used 6 or 12 months after opening. But why is your beauty product having a specified time of usage? Should we discontinue its use after that time? Our beauty products are made of ingredients that become useless after some time when exposed to the environment. And many of them cause some serious side effects if they are kept in use. Think of your expensive skincare that you don’t want to throw after expiration and are still in your use, is causing great damage to your skin-so what’s the point of using it? Same is the case for dermaroller. Let us find out how long you go with your dermaroller before it’s time to replace it?
How often should you derma roll?
Dermaroller is getting a lot of popularity because it can target almost all your skin concerns. Acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines-you name the problem, a dermaroller will never disappoint you. Even if you don’t have these problems, you can use for skin rejuvenation. Dermarolling, like other skin therapies, is performed on the skin for a particular duration in specified sessions. An increase in your dermarolling sessions won’t do any good but damage your skin. And reducing the treatment duration will not provide the desired effect. So how often should you derma roll? It depends on both on skin condition and the needle length you use.
- 0.25mm: you can use this every day with no hesitation.
- 0.5mm: Use no more than 2 times a week.
- 1.0mm: Use once in 14 days.
- 1.5mm: You can use it once every three to four weeks.
- 2.0mm+: Once in every 5 weeks.
How many times can you use a dermaroller before replacing?
Everything has an expiration date. So have a dermaroller. A good quality dermaroller can last for approximately six to eight months. Cheap rollers use poor quality needles that are made of cheap surgical steel. Our dermarollers are very high quality, if used with the proper care, it will last approximately six to eight months. The needles are made up of medical-grade steel and pure titanium. They will not wear out as much. But still, with continual use they will eventually become blunt, just as an expensive razor would.
Why Do You Need To Replace A Dermaroller?
A dermaroller is composed of needles that are made up of steel or titanium. These needles easily get rust and bend with a few uses. Using rusty and bent needles on your skin can potentially harm your skin than do any good. It can cause an infection or cause tears and scratches on your skin. That is why you need to throw away that rusty dermaroller and buy a new one.
We have both steel and titanium dermarollers. The best derma rollers are made with titanium because it is much stronger and sharpest from other needles. Titanium needles are the strongest and sharpest of all needles and cause less pain and more efficacy. Titanium dermarollers are more durable than the steel ones. The needles will last longer and the sharpness won’t blunt as quickly. Stainless steel is a weaker alloy. The needles can damaged by a fall. It can get rust very easily if not cared properly.
