Video below shows doctor using numbing cream during dermarolling on his patients, they bleed a lot :
Bleeding = effective. You need to roll until bleeding to maximize the effectiveness. If you cannot bear the pain, you can apply numbling cream. If u can bear the pain, you don't need numbling cream. If you roll, you will feel very pain, when u feel pain, u won't put pressure. If you don't put pressure, it won't cause bleeding and thus it is not effective. Bleeding = effective. If you want bleeding without so much pain, you can do stamp-chopping instead of rolling. Stmp-chopping = press 2 seconds then release, press 2 seconds then release, press 2 seconds then release (no rolling at all), u won't feel pain if without rolling, so u can put lot of pressure, so it will cause bleeding, so it will be more effective. Below are some of my personal derma-rolling progress pictures, I roll less and stamp-chopping a lot to cause bleeding :
If u want faster remove the scars, then put max pressure when rolling, it will be bleeding a lot and painful if without numbing cream / lidocaine / anesthetic. (5 to 10 sessions can complete remove the scars already).
If you don't dare to put pressure when rolling, or if you don't dare to bleed, it will takes longer time to remove the scars. (40 - 100 sessions only can complete remove the scars).
Before you use dermaroller, please do the 3 steps :
1) Check the needles heads of the dermaroller, if there is a needle bent / twisted / broken, please don't use the dermaroller anymore because it will create more new scars, you have to throw it to dustbin and go buy a new dermaroller. If you feel 1 or 2 needles pulling your skin when you are dermarolling your skin, you MUST stop using it, because there is 1 or 2 bent needles. You will find out the bent needles if you check all the needles carefully. Look at the picture below for example of a bent needle :
2) Wash the dermaroller with soap + water (me and most of my customers also do it, but some other perfectionise people want perfect clean, they use salt water or 75% alcohol to clean it).
3) Wash your face with facial cleanser before you start dermarolling your face.
Step to use dermaroller (if you don't want to bleed) :
1) Use dermaroller to roll on your skin vertically for 10 times, horizontally for 10 times to form + shape. Then roll another 20 times with different directions to form x shape, like the above picture.
2) Apply cream on your skin. Click here for the info of cream.
Step to use dermaroller (if you want to roll harder with long needles roller until bleed a lot) :
1) Apply lidocain 10% spray for 30 seconds to numb your skin to prevent the pain later. Click here for the info of lidocain 10% spray.
2) Use dermaroller to roll on your skin for 10 times per direction to form + shape and x shape, like the above picture.
3) Wash away the lidocain from your face with water.
4) Apply cream on your skin. Click here for the info of cream.
How many time I can dermarolling in a month?
It is depend on how fast your skin can heal/recovery. Normally if you roll harder with longer needles causing a lot of bleed, you will need to wait 3 days to let the redness disappear and you will need to wait another 4 days to let the blackness disappear, so total 7 days that you need to wait. You can dermarolling again only when all redness and blackness disappear, because if you dermarolling too many times on redness / blackness scars, it will cause hyperpigmentation appear. So 1 week can roll 1 time only if you plan to roll harder until bleed. Laser treatment also can do only 1 time per month right? Because worry hyperpigmentation appear.
What length of dermaroller should I use?
2.5mm or 3mm is for body skins like legs, ass, stomach which have thicker skin.
1.5mm or 2mm is for removing the sink inside scars like ice-pick, pitted / boxcar, rolling scars, wrinkles.
1mm is for dark black scars, hyperpigmentation, pigmentation.
0.2mm to 0.75mm are used to make the beautiful skin become more beautiful, or used to make the skin more easy absorb the nutricient of cream products.
How many sessions that A dermaroller can be used?
30 to 50 sessions. You can use it until the head of needles no longer sharp.
How long it takes to removes all my deep scars completely?
10 months if you dermarolling without apply any cream. 7 months if you dermarolling + revitol / dermagist cream (it is based on 10 days per session).
Should I use derma-roller or derma-stamp?
Derma-roller head is bigger. Derma-stamp head is smaller. So it is better you use dermaroller if you have many scars on big area on your face, because you will need to spend long long time if you use small head derma-stamp on big area. You can use derma-stamp on the small area which derma-roller cannot reach, for example the nose area and near the eyes area.
How small is the size of derma-stamp if compare to derma-roller?
Picture below show the comparison of size between derma-stamp and derma-roller :
Can I dermarolling on pimples / acnes areas?
Some people even a doctors say dermarolling on pimples area can cure and remove all pimples, but I suggest you don't dermarolling on pimples / acne areas. If you still have acnes / pimples breakout on your skin, I suggest you use RM28 Caroline Refining Trial Set to cure pimples and prevent pimple breakout.

Yes, you can use dermaroller without apply cream. Actually the purpose of applying cream is just to faster the scars removal progress.
