FAQ

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is a treatment where a roller with tiny needles is moved along the skin. The needles in the pen produce micro punctures in skin, which enhances the absorption of skincare products. It can also cause an increase in the skin’s collagen production, which helps minimize fine lines and scarring from causes like acne, pore size, skin texture, and complexion issues.

 

WHAT DOES MICRONEEDLING HELP WITH?

Microneedling helps with wrinkles, acne scars, pore size, uneven tone, texture and more. When microneedling, you’re creating micro punctures in your skin, which promotes the production of collagen. Microneedling also creates pathways that allow skincare to access deeper layers of the skin. This action triggers a natural healing response, which produces new collagen and elastin in these areas. The result is brighter, bouncier, younger looking skin.

 

WHERE CAN I MICRONEEDLE? 

The face:

  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck

The body 

  • Buttocks,

CAN I USE THE MICRONEEDLE TO IMPROVE MY EYE AREA?

You can use the dermaroller under your eyes to treat dark circles. You can also use it along the fine lines by your crows feet. Use with caution! These are sensitive areas.

 

WHEN SHOULD I MICRONEEDLE?

We recommend that you use your Hydrapebble tool three times a week. However you can safely use this tool once a day depending on your skin tolerance. When you first begin using your roller, make sure that you start off slowly to test the sensitivity of your skin. 

 

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID WHILE MICRONEEDLING?

Do not use microneedling while on Accutane or taking AHAs/BHAs. Avoid microneedling while using any ingredients that might irritate your skin. Some Retinol-based creams are ok to use in conjunction with microneedling, but you should perform a small patch test on your skin before using the Hydrapebble on your entire face.

 

HOW MUCH PRESSURE SHOULD I APPLY WHILE MICRONEEDLING?

Use light to medium pressure. Roll horizontally, vertically, and diagonally 6-8 times.

 

WHAT SIZE IS YOUR MICRONEEDLE?

 .25mm is considered a cosmetic tool by the FDA, and are safe to use at home daily. We recommend only going to professionals for micro-needling treatments with anything greater than .25mm.

 

CAN I MICRONEEDLE WHILE PREGNANT?

Yes! Microneedling is safe to use because it’s 100% ingredient-free. Microneedling stimulates skin to boost collagen production. Ask your doctor about the topical ingredients you plan to use on your skin.


CAN YOU MIX A COCKTAIL SERUM FOR HYDRAPEBBLE?

Yes! You can mix a cocktail serum with your Hydrapebble. Our tool was designed for you to mix in all your favorite serums into the cartridge and to deliver your serum deeper into your skin.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NANO CARTRIDGE & 12 PIN NEEDLE CARTRIDGE?

The NANO works on the surface level by exfoliating and delivering serum to the surface layer of your skin for instant brightness and glow.

The 12 PIN NEEDLE works deeper in the layers of your skin so that you get maximum penetration and promotes collagen production. It also targets uneven texture and wrinkles.

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY HYDRAPEBBLE REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGE?

The NANO & 12 PIN NEEDLE Cartridge is a one time use only. Discard after use!
