Micro Needle Products
The Derma Roller cleaner is an essential product for maintaining the hygiene of the micro needles. The cleaner is made from isopropyl alcohol, which is often used to disinfect medical equipment. As it is alcohol based it rapidly evaporates ensuring there are no chemicals on the Derma Roller the next time you use it. The cleaner comes in a convenient pump spray which allows you to avoid having to touch the needles and risk damaging them. Simply rinse under warm water, spray the cleaner on and allow the alcohol to evaporate / air dry. Repeat this process before using the Derma Roller as well. This avoids any bacteria harbouring on your roller in between treatments.
Be aware that many cleaning products are not safe to be used on the roller due to the increased absorption of products through the skin with skin needling. This Derma Roller cleaner kills 99.9% of all bacteria.
99% Isopropyl Alcohol
Alcohols do not not dissolve proteins (as found in blood and skin), so you’ll need to use a detergent. Wash the Derma Roller in warm water with a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid, taking care not to touch the needles. You can move it vigorously in the water. Do not use a dishwasher or boiling water because it will damage the needles. This washing merely cleans the roller, it does not disinfect it.
Rinse the Derma Roller with clean (tap) water and dry with a paper towel. Spray the Derma Roller cleaner onto the micro needles and allow to air dry. Once dry, put the Derma Roller back in its original storage case.
