Read all information! So confused which roller to buy! agh!
« on: April 21, 2013, 09:12:34 AM »
OK--  So what I read is:

0.5mm is a regular roller

1mm is for general face renewal, and also can enhance blood flow to hair follicles

0.2 needle is if Botox is used..which I do every 3 months.

Single needle: to use on wrinkles between eyes.


Alright I experience light acne red spot scars on my face. I have sensitive skin, it is fair and can easily turn pink from the sun. I use products on my face like skinceuticals, retinol, etc.

I get botox every 3 months.

I want to use the single needle too just for the heck of it.

Now uumm.......which needle do I buy?

For red spots, use a regular 0.5 mm dermaroller, roll up to three times a week. You can also try our 0.025% Tretinoin cream.

For acne scars, a 1 mm dermastamp.

Do not roll or stamp over the botoxed area for the first two weeks. It can take up to two weeks for Botox to maximally paralyze the muscle (by blocking the receptors on the muscle).

Please read the size guide for various skin conditions in our dermarolling instructions:

If you have questions after reading it, just ask.
