Have you been wondering what the correct protocol is when it comes to cleaning your dermaroller?

As usual, I was taking no chances when it came to finding the answer to this and turned to one of Havana Skin Clinic’s
latest blogs in finding the answer and the right dermroller procedure to follow. Yasmin is an Expert in Results driven treatments and products so I think we’re pretty safe with her advice, don’t you?
In order to clean the roller properly, boil the kettle and and angle to roller until the pouring water so that the head spins and you can be sure that all of the needles have been successfully cleaned. Yasmin recommends to change the dermaroller once every 6 weeks. The reason for this is in case there us any bacteria left on the needle from over time and also the needles become blunt over time making them less effective and dangerous to use.Taken directly from Havana Skin Clinic’s website.
To ensure the deepest clean of your dermaroller, follow the steps below. These steps also apply if you believe you have rolled over anything active.
