Using The 1.5mm Needles For Derma Rolling, Should I Use A Numbing Cream

Using a good quality numbing cream is a great way to reduce or completely eliminate any sort of distress, particularly if you’re using 1.5mm Dermarolling needles.

1.5mm derma roller is a Dermarolling device especially designed for home use. The Dermarolling treatment helps in better absorption of applied skin care products.

In addition, the procedure triggers production of skin collagen and elastin, which help in eliminating acne scars, deep burn or surgical scars, stretch marks and wrinkles.

People who are sensitive to pain may not find dermarolling a little discomforting, which is why we advice the use of a numbing cream.

Is 1.5mm Dermarolling Treatment Painful?

The sensation caused by 1.5mm Dermaroller on your skin can be painful. This is the main reason that a majority of medical practitioners recommend the use of numbing creams when using a Dermaroller with this needle length.

How to Make Your Skin less Sensitive with Numbing Creams?

Take a good quality numbing cream, such as Dr. Numb® and apply a generous layer onto the area to be treated, at least 30 – 45 minutes prior to the procedure. Cover the area with a saran warp. A feeling of numbness will soon start settling in.

Your skin will now become less sensitive and micro needling can be done without much discomfort or pain.

Choosing the Right Numbing Cream Is Important:

You can easily carry out with your dermarolling session with 1.5mm needles even at your home. But, for best results, you need to take certain precautions.

Make sure the numbing cream you use is non-oil base and contains the safest amount of Lidocaine (topical anesthetic) as approved by FDA. In short, you should always prefer using Dr. Numb® for fast absorption and safe action.
