Hi, I think it is normal, what size roller are you using? Some places it said to use 3 times a week, and other place it said use every day for 1 week and then give skin another week to recover and rejuvenate. How are you doing it?
I've just ordered one too (0.75MM) from Amazon and I am hoping to start it as soon as it arrives. I have been reading up on it, and I am not sure what cream to use after it. I've got the origins night cream and I might use that. I'm also looking at dermalen treatment too (which is very pricey) but not sure yet.
Braver then me diving straight into bigger needle. There was a video on YouTube- diagonal, vertical, horizontal x2 and split face into zones. She didn’t go near the eyes and went over the lips which I didn’t. Would’ve killed I thought!
@Polkadot1974 Actually 0.75MM was fine and it didn't hurt me (I do have a high pain threshold though). I am going to do it for a few weeks but I am hoping to move onto 1.5MM. I read a journal paper yesterday from India where they used the dermroller (1.5MM) once every month for 4 months, and the results were staggering:
I've rolled twice and applied vit C after. Several people have commented and I feel like my skin is brighter and plumper - not because of collagen yet, of course, but because the products can penetrate more effectively
