How to maximise your skin needling CIT results using Clearskincare Skin Rollers
Follow these tips to maximise your skin needling, collagen induction (CIT) results for acne & all indented scars, aging skin & pigmentation.
Skin needling on the face
Always apply skin care products immediately after rolling; the roller pierces the stratum corneum creating micro channels that significantly increase the absorption of skin care products into the dermis.
You can roll just the scarred areas or you may wish to roll your whole face (including the application of product to your whole face). Rolling your whole face will infill your scars plus the added bonus of stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin of your whole face giving you fuller, tauter, smoother skin with a more even complexion, a virtual homecare facelift that can be safely repeated indefinitely.
As each individual has different levels and grades of scarring, the amount of time you continue needling varies from user to user. The length of time that you continue rolling is controlled by the size, depth and area of scarring, your ability to produce collagen and elastin and your individual healing time response. Your skin is naturally renewed every 40 days. Results will be noticeable from the Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller after 2 cycles (80 days). Significant results will be evident after 4 to 6 cycles. You should continue rolling until you are happy with the results and feel your scars/lines/wrinkles have infilled sufficiently and your skin tone has evened. Alternatively you can continue to roll indefinitely.
Results vary from person to person, with users experiencing 90%+ improvement to the scarring and others less than 50%. However all users see some form of improvement.
When using the Clearskincare Face Roller roll the whole face and apply skin care products immediately after rolling. When rolling with the Clearskincare Face Roller there is only a light prickling sensation, no blood spotting or redness of the skin. Normal activities can be resumed after rolling.
Skin needling the body
When rolling stretch marks or other indented scars on the body we recommend rolling only the scarred areas. As mentioned above, always apply skin care products immediately after rolling, the roller pierces the stratum corneum creating micro channels that significantly increase the absorption of skin care products into the dermis.
Here are a couple of tips to help you maximise your skin needling/rolling results
When you first start using your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller it may hurt a little, however your skin will quickly adapt and desensitise. You may also experience a little blood spotting (simply dab away with a tissue), this is normal when using your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller and is actually a good sign. It means you are piercing the epidermal/dermal junction and stimulating the upper dermis and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to infill your scars.
You will find that once you have established your skin rolling routine you will be able to increase the amount of pressure applied and the speed at which you undertake your procedure. Apply skincare products immediately after rolling.
Apply the roller gently over the area to be treated, using a star shaped pattern, roll each area 10 to 15 times, lifting the roller between passes to avoid rolling the same areas. A simple method is to divide your face into 6 areas - left and right forehead, left and right nose/eye/cheek/temple and left and right lower cheek/mouth/chin areas. Only roll around the eyes.
The aim of the procedure is to create the maximum number of micropunctures per area of skin being rolled. It should take you approximately 3 to 5 minutes to roll your whole face. As you establish your routine you can increase the pressure applied and speed used. Only ever use as much pressure as you feel comfortable applying. You do not have to be too fastidious, remember what you may miss tonight you will get tomorrow night.
We recommend you rinse your Clearskincare roller under hot tap water after us and allow to air dry. Do not use cleaning solutions, detergents, bleaches or any other solutions (including sterilising solutions) other than hot tap water as they may damage the stainless steel needles. For hygiene purposes, we recommend your Clearskincare roller be used by only one person.
Your rollers can be safely stored in their sturdy, travel friendly plastic case that is supplied with your Clearskincare Roller.
Tips for Clearskincare Copper Peptide Serum & Vitamin C Serum application to maximise results
The most effective method of applying these serums is to apply one drop to the back of your hand (yes, products are wasted on the palms of our hands, because of sun exposure, the backs of our hands need it more!) then apply to the whole of your forehead and temple areas. A 2nd drop on the back of your hand is then applied to the whole of the right hand eye, nose, cheek, mouth and jaw areas. Repeat this action with the 3rd drop for the left hand side. Only apply product around your eyes.
