As someone planning to have micro-needling done, what questions do you ask about the equipment used? Do you know if they are using a licensed medical device? Are the needles sterile? What product is used while micro-needling, is it a sealed package or is it mixed by the practitioner? What is the aftercare protocol? Be informed, as it is your face after all.
What should you look for in a micro-needling equipment to ensure that it does the job it is designed to do, i.e. skin repair. plump the skin, wrinkles, fine lines, minimize scars ( such as acne), correct hyper-pigmentation, sun damage and most importantly build collagen!
Don’t be misled by imitation rollers and professional equipment that boast “the most needles”. Although we want to maximize the number of perforations, too many needles compromise the safety and comfort of the treatment. Imagine a bed of nails: while a bed of nails can easily support your body weight without a nail perforating your skin, a single nail would easily penetrate your skin under the same pressure.
Similarly, a roller with too many needles will require dangerous and uncomfortable amounts of pressure in order to penetrate the skin to the appropriate depth.
The eDermaStamp® by Dermaroller® employs the optimal number of needles to maximize effectiveness, safety and comfort. The professional equipment is optimally designed to make 150 punctures per second. The sterile needles used during the treatments are trackable and are QR coded. Sterile prepackaged medical grade hyaluronic acid is used during the treatment to be absorbed by your skin. In addition, a medical grade Hyaluronic mask is applied at the end of the treatment to help close the micro-punctures. All products used during the treatments with eDermaStampDermaroller are Health Canada licensed to ensure the best of quality and results.
Your skin care treatment equipment, home care and/or professional,should be Health Canada approved and licensed to ensure quality, safety and results!
