Microneedling has also been referred to as Skin Needling, Rolling, Derma-rolling and Needle-dermabrasion.
The procedure involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin.
Microneedling can be safely performed on all skin types.
DERMAV MICRONEEDLING SYSTEM
How does it work?
A microneedling-roller contains hundreds of tiny needles. When in use, these needles create micro-
injuries on the skin, which in turn sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it
heals—leaving your complexion tighter and plumper than it was beforehand. In actual fact the skin makes a
“scar” which makes it an ideal method for filling in fine lines and wrinkles, lifting and filling pitted scars
and thickening and plumping the skin under the eyes (thus diminishing the appearance of dark circles and
bags). Micro-needling is also a very effective treatment for acne scars and discolouration since it penetrates the skin so deeply.
Prep before needling
Prepare your skin by cleansing and then exfoliating it. You may use a numbing agent (topical anaesthetic cream or lotion) to decrease the stinging effects of the needles as microneedling may be painful. Ensure that you follow the instructions carefully and thoroughly remove with warm water before rolling your skin. Before any skin needling treatment, rinse the roller head under hot, running water. Using gentle pressure, roll from left to right, top to bottom and diagonally 10 times per area, over your cheeks, forehead, chin, lips, and neck. No need to press too hard or put yourself in pain—apply as much pressure as you can comfortably tolerate. Take special care on your lips and underneath your eyes, as this skin is especially delicate. (And never apply serum or roll on your eyelids.)
After finishing, the area may be left as is or gently washed with tepid water. Only apply a serum or lotion
approved for use on broken skin. Avoid any product with anti-inflammatory properties as controlled
inflammation in the area aids to the healing process. Before leaving your house, apply a suitable sunscreen.
Remember to clean the roller head under hot running water.
How often should I do it?
This is really up to you: You can safely use your microneedling system as often as a few times a week up to once a month. Rolling once a week for 20 weeks means that your roller will last you 5 months before it has to be replaced.
How do I take care of my microneedling system?
After using, rinse under hot running water. You may further clean your roller with rubbing alcohol. Store it in its plastic case. Be sure to replace your roller after about 15-20 uses.
What are the typical areas that are treated?
Microneedling is able to treat: fine lines and wrinkles around eyes, mouth, cheeks, neck and décolleté. Other
areas of the body can also be treated such as the abdomen, back of the hands and arms. All forms of acne
scars, most surgical scars including facelift scars, abdominal scars, breast plastic operation, post liposuction
scars, orthopaedic scars, stretch marks and burn contracture scars can safely be treated. In addition, stretch
marks on the breasts and body and loose body skin are also safely treated.
The most commonly treated area with microneedling is the face, for skin rejuvenation.
Avoid microneedling if you are prone to developing keloid scars. Microneedling is not recommended for active
infections or inflammatory conditions, chronic skin conditions, blood clotting problems, poor healing or skin
malignancies. If you are unsure, consult a physician before use.
Is dermaV microneelding system safe?
One hour before the treatment a local numbing agent may be applied to the area. Always follow the
manufacturer’s instructions carefully. The numbing agent makes the procedure with the roller almost painless. Because the epidermis is not removed, and the skin’s barrier has not been removed, the skin is still very capable of performing all its protective functions, including rapid healing, making this treatment much safer than many other more invasive options.
