The Derma Roller device helps reduce wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and uneven skin. After every use, the Derma Roller accumulates bacteria and dirt from the surface of your skin. If you put the Derma Roller back into the plastic storage container without disinfecting the device, you reduce the quality of the product and set yourself up for a possible skin infection. The Derma Roller comes with a storage container and you must disinfect the container as well.
Things You'll Need
- Rubbing alcohol
- Hot water
Pour rubbing alcohol into the Derma Roller storage container, submerging the roller head. Allow the rubbing alcohol to disinfect the roller and container for at least five minutes.
Dump the rubbing alcohol out of the Derma Roller storage container and run the container under hot water to remove leftover alcohol and germs.
Fill up the bathroom sink with hot water. Add 1 tbsp. of bleach to the water. Place your Derma Roller on the bottom of the sink. Allow the roller to remain in the water for at least five minutes. Using bleach and hot water properly disinfects the roller in the case of a present staph infection.
Dry off the Derma Roller and the container. Place your disinfected Derma Roller back into the clean and dried holding container. Storing a wet roller in the container can lead to bacteria growth and possible skin infection.
