How Often Should You Derma Roll? Derma rollers can be used for the first few days, according to Dr. Zeichner. “If your skin can tolerate the therapy without having any problems,” he says, “move to every other day, then eventually every day.”
“The at-home devices are very different from medical therapies, which often result in lengthy days of downtime.”

1What happens if you use derma roller too often?
Microneedling is Too Often Failure to do so will slow healing, inflammation, and stagnation, which we do not want to do to our skin. Collagen is already present in the skin up to a month after microneedling, so be patient.
If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.
Needless are rolled but not into the skin at a straight angle and are rolled onto skin instead, so the micro-hole it creates tends to be wider shaped cones, which is why giving two weeks between each session is preferable.
2How often should you derma roll for best results?
2-3 times a week.
(warning: this only works if needles are 0.1mm and smaller) We discovered that one time per week with a high quality serum is the most effective. Your skin will be gradually accustomed to the micro-needles, while serum boosters will provide your skin with a rapid and deep absorption. If you want to maintain results this way, it’s important to stick to your weekly dermarolling session rather than abandoning it.
If you’re rolling with a 0.5 mm or greater, it is not recommended to use more than once a month, but we can’t say enough that it should be a medical procedure. It’s difficult to decide which part of the skin is thick enough to use a longer needle length.
3How many days derma roller can be used?
Don’t wait too long to replace your derma roller; after ten to fifteen uses, you should swap your current roller for a new one, so you may need a new one every month if you’re rolling several days a week.
4Can derma rolling damage skin?

5Can I use 0.5 derma roller twice a week?
The best way to use a 0.5mm derma roller is to use it every two weeks. This allows for the wound healing cascade to take place, while still inducting collagen. A 0.5 mm dermaroller is used more often than this does not have enough skin to heal itself.
6Is home derma rolling safe?
Derma rolling can also be used to penetrate high-tech substances such as stem cells and epidermal growth factor, but dermatologists are reluctant to use the needles at home because they claim that the needles aren’t wide enough to reach the correct holes into skin, so you’re effectively damaging your face for no reason.
7How hard should you press dermaroller?
Use Your Dermaroller No need to press too hard or put yourself in pain—apply as much pressure as you can comfortably withstand. The number of your needles as well as your skin tone will determine how often you dermaroll. If your dermaroller has longer needles, you will only need to dermarolle once a month.
8Can I use Vitamin C serum after microneedling?

10How often should you roll your face?

11Can I use 1mm derma roller on face?
For acne scars, you’ll need a derma roller with 0.75-1mm needle length, and for deeper scars, 1.5mm would be the best. For scars that are not on the face, you can use a larger roller such as 1.5mm and above, depending on how deep the scar is.
12Can I use vitamin C serum after Dermarolling?
But can you use a vitamin C serum with a derma roller treatment? As it turns out, it’s not a good idea. Vitamin C serum’s active ingredient goes underneath the skin, and it may even cause the entire process to be shattered.
13Can I use derma roller without serum?
With a derma-roller, it’s recommended that you use a serum (or some similar “priming” product). It acts as a buffer between the needles and your skin, as well as increasing absorption.
14Can I wash my face with water after Dermarolling?
The short answer is yes, you can wash your face after dermarolling, but please wait 6 hours to allow your skin to heal.  Washing immediately after the procedure will minimize the beneficial effects of dermarolling.
