For best results, USE SKIN ROLLER ONLY AS DIRECTED.
Always first cleanse the area thoroughly with Dr. Pickart's Face & Body Cleanser. Be sure your fingers and hands are completely clean as well. DO NOT use on skin that is red, irritated, experiencing an active breakout, or if you have any skin condition. Skin area must be completely clean before rolling. Remove makeup before use. DO NOT USE AROUND THE EYES.
Depending on your goals, clients have successfully used the following 3 techniques:
1. Apply Folligen Therapy Spray very lightly before they use the skin needling device...
2. Apply Folligen Therapy Spray very lightly after they use their device, or....
3. Alternate: Use Folligen Therapy Spray on the days you do not use the skin needling device... (simply use your device by itself).
Needling (skin needling or skin rolling) has been successfully used for
many years in clinics and dermatologist offices. At-home devices can be
effective when used properly and when the skin is allowed "recovery
time" (or a rest period) in-between uses.
Using a skin needling device on the scalp has proven beneficial to heighten penetration of scalp products, when used properly.
WHAT SIZE NEEDLE TO USE ON SCALP?
Since there are no controlled studies on varying needling methods, we must direct that clients thoroughly investigate and research for themselves what would be the best starting point for them and how to use another scalp product (i.e. Minoxidil) when needling.
Some online information will state that the size of the needle should depend on how much hair is on the head. If hair is sparse, typically a .25mm - 1.0mm is recommended for at-home use.
ALWAYS start slowly and only after thoroughly researching what may be the best technique for your individual situation, scalp sensitivity, and goals. Keep in mind that longer needles may require a numbing cream and professional supervision.
