Eye retinol and dermaroll - How long shall I stop eye anti-aging retinol before my derma roll session?

Doctor Answers 2

1-2 days recommend 2-3 days after rolling.

Stop even the night before. Retinol should not be used in concentrations that irritate your skin. Wait 48-72 hours after rolling (I suggest a 0.25 to .5 mm roller) then restart your Retinol.Repeat monthly.All the best, Dr Davin Lim Brisbane, Australia.

Thanks for your query. Retinol can be stopped 3-5 days prior to derma roller. The exact time can be suggested by your dermatologist. Hope it helps.
