Hi! Should I apply a product bfeore or after using the dermaroller? If I use the product bfeore, do you think that the absorption will be increased (compared to using a product after the treatment)? Is it dangerous to apply a product bfeore the treatment (even if the product is 100% pure)? In case I can´╗┐ use a product bfeore, how should I clean my dermaroller after that (I mean, the dermaroller would probably be all dirty with the serum ). Thanks!
