ALPHALUXY SKINREBUILDER DERMAROLLER
How does the Alphaluxy Derma Roller work?
The head part of the Derma Roller is made of highest grade medical titanium needles of 0.5 mm length, that when are pressed on the skin create tiny punctures which trigger a wound healing response that renews the skin cells and produce collagen, elastin and stimulate the hair follicles on the scalp and on the facial area.
0.5 mm is the only length that can stimulate these natural reactions on our bodies. Shorter needles only help in the absorption of topical skin serum but are not effective for beard and hair growth, as well as for skin rejuvenation.
How do you use it?
Step 1: Sterilise and disinfect your dermaroller before every treatment. Soak it for 5 minutes with 75% medical alcohol. Do not use steam and high temperature sterilisation methods.
Step 2: Rinse and clean the treatment area with hot water, to extract dirt and oils that can seep into your skin when the needles penetrate it.
Step 3: Gently roll backwards and forwards across your skin 4-8 times in a horizontal, vertical and diagonal pattern, keeping the speed and pressure uniform. Make sure you are using your index finger to push down on the handle applying moderate pressure without using excessive force. When changing directions, lift the roller off of your skin and the put it back down.
Step 4: After you've rolled your beard or scalp area, you can use a Alphaluxy Beard Oil. If you are using Minoxidil in conjunction with your Alphaluxy Beard / Hair Roller, wait 12-24 hours before applying it on the treatment area.
Step 5: Disinfect the roller before placing back in storage case. Leave it to air dry before storing it away back in the container.
How long and how often should I use it?
We recommend using Alphaluxy Derma Roller 2 times a week for best results.
Collagen is produced on the 2-3 days right after the treatment, so allow 2-3 days between the treatments.
If I use it for Hair Regrowth, will I need to do all of my head? If I only do the bald parts won't the rest start to fall out?
No, there is absolutely no need to treat the whole head, you only have to target the balding areas, where you want to start growing new hair follicles.
The other hair won't start falling out, it will just keep growing normally.
The aim of the treatment is to stimulate the production of new collagen and growth factors in areas where they are not/no more naturally produced by your body. This is why you only have to target balding areas and not the whole head.
Would I have to shave the hair that I have already off?
You can use the Derma Roller whilst having a beard, but you need to make sure that the needles penetrate the skin. If you see the needles are no able to penetrate the skin due to the beard length, we suggest to shave before the treatment.
How long will it take on average before I start to see results in facial hair growth?
For facial hair growth, it is common to start noticing a difference after as little as 4-5 treatments but you can expect to see stronger and more tangible results after 2/3 months of consistent treatments. It is important that you don’t stop your journey when you see the first results.
For best results, we suggest you to roll 1-2 times per week. A good schedule might be once every 3 days, to allow your body to recover and heal itself from the previous roll.
How often should I change the roller? How long can I use it for?
Alphaluxy Derma Roller needles are made of medical grade titanium, which make them strong and durable. If you use your Dermaroller 3 times per week, you should change it every 2 months.
Remember to always disinfect it before and after each treatment.
How do you clean it?
To clean your Alphaluxy Dermaroller just put the head part in a small cup of Isopropyl alcohol and leave it for 5 minutes. This will disinfect the needles before every treatment.
Is it painful to use?
No, it gives only a tingling sensation. If you have very sensitive skin it might give you a bit of discomfort on the first treatments, until your skin get used to it.
Is it safe for sensitive skin?
Yes, it is. On the first treatment apply only a gentle pressure, to understand how your skin react to the treatment. Redness after the treatment is normal and will go away in 24 hours (expect 48 hours if you have senstive skin)
