The terms facial fillers, dermal fillers, facial rollers are quite common for all those who are very beauty conscious or care for their skin quite closely. But what is a facial roller anyway?
Well, it is a roller which consists of small pins in it just the ways the needles in acupuncture might be arranged. It is then used to criss-cross or change the bigger spreading blood vessels of the skin of the face to have changes. Hence the name, face roller.
These face rollers are extremely common now but it is essential to use it in the most correct way. The first step to this involves choosing the right roller which can be done by the following.
Choose The Best Needle Size
There are many different needles from 0.25 mm to 3 mm. The bigger the needle, greater is the pain and bleeding. Therefore, you should use the minimal possible size for them. You can use both blunt cannula and face rollers.
On the other hand, the smallest needle will not have much collagen growth too, so choosing an intermediate needle and also the one which is specific for that treatment (fine lines, scarring, hyper-pigmentation) is important.
Choose The Best Time
You should keep in mind that the greater the needle size, the lesser you should use it.
For example, a 0.25mm needle can be used daily but a 0.5mm pin should only be used once in seven to nine days. Hence you should keep in mind this factor as well. A 0.75 or 1.0 mm needle should only be used if the skin can tolerate multiple treatments.
In order to reduce those wrinkles, lines and other problems you should use a face roller very carefully by choosing the highest quality roller that you come across. You should follow these given steps for maintenance:
Handle It Well
It is important to handle the roller well so it doesn’t break by covering it with clear covers while changing the roller head
Remove The Cover
You should remove the safety cover by pushing the top and bottom, attaching the handle and then pulling out the clear plastic cover.
Change The Roller Head
While changing the head, you should keep the cover on, press the right and left side, and gently pull out the head. Next push in the other roller into the head and change it.
How to Use a Face Roller?
The steps for using it include the following:
Firstly, pick the face roller and attach it for use after sterilizing it for one minute to prevent infection through a denture tablet.
Secondly, wash your face with a cleanser or alcohol to remove any oils or dirt so it doesn’t go further in your skin while rolling.
Thirdly apply a numbing cream and use gentle pressure to roll it back and forth diagonally, vertically and horizontally 2 to 4 times while pulling the skin lightly. Do not make any random moves.
Wash your face of all the blood and lastly sterilize your face roller again. That’s it! However there are some side effects of face rollers.
Hence, now you know how to use a face roller correctly and you can use it safely to meet all your beauty needs.
