I am aggressive when I roll and with a new 1.5mm roller I get alot of blood. The needles pentrate to their fullest. After a few uses, the sharp edge of the needles is definetly more dull and the blood spots are in turn, less. I do still get the sting after applying my GC though.
If you can afford it, try to replace the roller more frequently. At 5 week intervals, doing a full 1.5mm roll will require about 11 sessions in the year. At 3 rolls per roller, that's about 4 rollers for the year. Not too bad of a grand total if you choose to use the lesser priced units available.
If you can't afford it, try being more aggressive when you roll ( but cautious). Roll in every direction possible at least ten times.

She went over each cheek in every direction rolling quite quickly.
I had 3 'passes' done on each side.
Meaning she cleaned off all blood, cleaned the roller, and did it again.
All up my treatment took almost an hour. There was lots of blood soaked sponges when I was done. I was shocked at how much I had bled.
For my own reasons I didnt have it done again. But I feel knowing how a Derm does it may assist those who roll at home.

It took me about 2 full passes on each cheek for there to be blood. I rolled as much as I could tolerate. In the end I had a considerable amount of blood soaked tissues. If you are using a brand new roller, then you should roll until you get blood. I know people say about 4 passes in each direction, however, my rule of thumb is keep rolling until you start bleeding considerably. Wipe off the blood and do it again. I have darker skin and it took over a week for the rolled area to blend back into the rest of my skin.

When I was shown how to home roll, my derm used the analogy, to make a star, like * criss cross up down, diagonal, horizontal, quite a few times, then move to another part of the face, overlapping and do the same star pattern again. Obviously sometimes you are not making a star, along the jaw for example.
I recall my Derm saying some people take a while to bleed the first time, so go harder.
As long as you are clean, clean roller, you cant really do any damage. look for you tube vids, theres one with a guy rolling his head, THATS the way to do it, excepton the face.
