PREPARATION BEFORE PROCEDURE
Use Vitamin C Topical 2-3 wks prior to beginning dermarolling process
IMMEDIATELY BEFORE PROCEDURE
1.) Apply numbing cream (EMLA brand / lidocaine) to the face. Place saran wrap/plastic wrap over the cream. Allow 1 hour for absorption.
2.) Wash numbing cream off using mild soap ( I use Dr. Bronners Tea Tree soap)
3.)Clean areas of face to be rolled with ethyl alcohol. Apply with cotton balls.
DURING ROLLING PROCEDURE
Apply the roller at a 45 degree angle. Roll back and forth without picking up roller. Rolling it 4 x vertically, 4 x diagonally (both directions) and 4 x horizontally. (use 1.5 mm roller, 3-4 needle rolls)
AFTER ROLLING PROCEDURE
1.) Face will leak serous fluid and blood. Clean it away with gauze.
2.) Clean face with saline solution. Apply with cotton balls.
3.) Wash face with Tea Tree soap.
4.) ???? I don’t know whether to apply vitamin A (Green Cream / Retin-A) or vitamin C (Environ C Boost/generic Vitamin C moisturizer) immediately after dermarolling???? Or should I apply one after the other?
5.) A few hours after dermarolling. Take a shower and gently massage the face to remove excess serum, blood, and oil.
DAILY ROUTINE POST-DERMA ROLLING STARTING FROM MORNING TO NIGHT
1.) Wash face and apply Terproline cream.
2.) 6 hours or so wash face and apply Terproline cream again
3.) Light therapy before sleeping 415 nm BLUE (to fight acne), 580 nm YELLOW (build collagen), 630 nm RED & 880 nm NEAR-INFRARED (to repair skin cells). 15 minutes separately per light
4.) Apply Retin A micro before sleeping. (will use dermaroller .25 -.5 to increase absorption)
1) Should i be use vitamin C throughout the recovery stage? How often should I apply it.
2) Is there any negative affects to rolling with a .25-.5 mm roller everynight to increase absorption of Retin A daily? Do i roll it in the same manner as i did during the dermarolling procedure?
3)Should I be applying vitamin A or Vitamin C immediately after rolling?
4) How soon after dermarolling before i can use LED light therapy?
