Can I Wear Makeup after Derma Rolling

Derma rolling certain areas of your skin when needed is one of the best ways that you can help it, in a way, regenerate and give you that youthful glow once again. Derma rolling is the top home or DIY way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles just to mention a few. 

But what’s going to make the process more effective especially if you do it by yourself and not go to specialists is knowing what to do before and most especially after the DIY procedure. A lot of people ask, can I wear makeup after derma rolling? 

Well, let’s answer that question and more in this quick blog.

Overview of Derma Rolling

Derma rolling or what you may also call micro-needling is a process of using a handheld device called derma roller that uses tiny needles of about 0.2mm to 3.0mm to puncture your skin gently to give way for newer and healthier skin layers to grow. 

So, yes in a way your skin will be delicate and sensitive after the procedure but no, the process is not as hurtful as you might think. Anything below 0.5mm is considered to be really gentle and as a matter of fact, the recommended needle length for in-home treatments. But please do take note that anything over 0.5mm should be done by a specialist as A) it could hurt and B) dangerous if you do it yourself. You don’t want to put your skin at risk of any damage. 

So, that’s pretty much what derma rolling is all about and it’s a proven methodology on renewing the glow of your skin which a lot of people with acne marks can really benefit from or maybe those who want to get rid of that nasty stretch mark. 

Things You Should Remember After Derma Rolling

Now, the big question here is that if someone can wear makeup after derma rolling, say for example you need to go somewhere and you just derma rolled. Well, the answer to that is no, but there is a way around it. 

It’s actually not even advisable for someone to wear makeup the same day that they plan to derma roll. If you plan to derma roll make sure you wash your face thoroughly and of course, clean your derma roller too (and also after and right away).

And take note that you cannot put on any makeup two days after you’ve derma rolled. After that then it should be fine. You need to remember that your skin after the procedure is once again pretty delicate and sensitive and might be irritated or damaged if you put any chemicals on your face right after the process. So no, makeup is pretty much not allowed after derma rolling. 

So, it would be wise to make sure that you don’t have an appointment in the next 48 hours after you’ve derma rolled that you won’t have to put on any makeup. 

Now, for the work around that we’ve mentioned above. If you really need to put on some makeup after you’ve derma rolled then you can use mineral makeup. To those who are not familiar, mineral makeup utilizes minerals instead of synthetic ingredients used by traditional makeup. 

This is due to the fact that mineral makeup doesn’t seep into your pores and so it won’t be as aggressive or detrimental to your recovering skin. It even allows your skin to breathe and offers additional layers of protection. Plus, mineral makeup has got SPF which you actually need to protect your delicate skin after you’ve derma rolled which covers another important thing that you need to do after the said procedure. 

It’s also imperative that you clean your derma roller immediately after usage and get it ready for your next session. And yes, you may utilize your derma roller for a lot of parts of your body. Your face, neck, tummy, or thighs are all applicable areas. 

Most would work on their forehead, nose, areas around the eyes, cheeks, areas around the lips, chin, and neck but you may also work on other parts of your body especially for stretch marks. 


How often do I replace my derma roller?

Depending on how often you utilize your derma roller you may replace it every 2 months given that you may use your derma roll about 8 to 12 times. How often you derma roll would really depend, you can do it once every 6 months or monthly or even weekly. 

Can I derma roll over acne?

No, it’s utilized to help with acne scarring but you should never derma roll a part of your skin with acne as that would aggravate it. 

Are results immediate?

As a matter of fact, yes!
