Maximising Skin Roller Results

Follow these tips to maximise your skin needling, collagen induction (CIT) results for acne & all indented scars, aging skin & pigmentation.

Results from skin needling

As each individual has different levels and grades of scarring, the amount of time you continue needling varies from user to user. The length of time that you continue rolling is controlled by the size, depth and area of scarring, your ability to produce collagen and elastin and your individual healing time response. Your skin is naturally renewed every 40 days (1 cycle). Results will be noticeable from your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller after 2 cycles (80 days). Significant results will be evident after 4 to 6 cycles. You should continue rolling until you are happy with the results and feel your scars/lines/wrinkles have infilled sufficiently and your skin tone has evened. Alternatively you can continue to roll indefinitely.

Results vary from person to person, with users experiencing 90% improvement to the scarring and others less than 50%. However all users see some form of improvement in their scarring, skin texture and tone.

When using the your Clearskincare skin roller, roll the whole face and apply skin care products immediately after rolling.

Skin needling on the face

Always apply skin care products immediately after rolling; the roller pierces the stratum corneum creating micro channels that radically increase the absorption of skin care products into the dermis.

You can roll just the scarred areas or you may wish to roll your whole face (including the application of product to your whole face). Rolling your whole face will infill your scars plus the added bonus of stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin of your whole face giving you fuller, tauter, smoother skin with a more even complexion, a virtual homecare facelift that can be safely repeated indefinitely.

Skin needling the body

When rolling stretch marks or other indented scars on the body with your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller we recommend rolling only the scarred areas. As mentioned above, always apply skin care products immediately after rolling, apply approximately 1/2 gram (pea size) of Clearskincare cream or 3 drops of serum to an area of skin approximately the same size as your face.

Tips to help you maximise your skin needling/rolling results

When you first start using your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller it may hurt a little, however your skin will quickly adapt and desensitise. You may also experience some blood spotting (simply dab away with a tissue), this is normal when using your Clearskincare Skin & Scalp Roller and is actually a good sign. It means you are piercing the epidermal/dermal junction and stimulating the upper dermis and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to infill your scars.

You will find that once you have established your skin rolling routine you will be able to increase the amount of pressure applied and the speed at which you undertake your procedure. Apply skincare products immediately after rolling.

When rolling with the Clearskincare Face Roller there is only a light prickling sensation, no blood spotting or redness of the skin. Normal activities can be resumed after rolling.

Rolling technique

Apply the roller gently over the area to be treated, using a star shaped pattern, roll each area 10 to 15 times, lifting the roller between passes to avoid rolling the same areas.  A simple method is to divide your face into 6 areas - left and right forehead, left and right nose/eye/cheek/temple and left and right lower cheek/mouth/chin areas.  Only roll around the eyes.

The aim of the procedure is to create the maximum number of micropunctures per area of skin being rolled.  It should take you approximately 3 to 5 minutes to roll your whole face.  As you establish your routine you can increase the pressure applied and speed used.  Only ever use as much pressure as you feel comfortable applying. You do not have to be too fastidious, remember what you may miss tonight you will get tomorrow night.


We recommend you rinse your Clearskincare skin roller under hot tap water after us, return it to its travel case and allow to air dry. Do not use cleaning solutions, detergents, bleaches or any other solutions (including sterilising solutions) other than hot tap water as they may damage the stainless steel needles. For hygiene purposes, we recommend your Clearskincare skin roller be used by only one person.


Your rollers can be safely stored in their original, travel safe hard plastic case. 

Tips for serum and cream application to maximise results

The most effective method of applying Clearskincare serums and creams is to apply one drop or a 1/2 gram (pea size) to the back of your hand (yes, products are wasted on the palms of our hands, because of sun exposure, the backs of our hands need it more!) then apply to the whole of your forehead and temple areas. A 2nd drop on the back of your hand is then applied to the whole of the right hand eye, nose, cheek, mouth and jaw areas. Repeat this action with the 3rd drop for the left hand side. Only apply product around your eyes.
