Thank you for the quick reply!  :)

I do have some smaller dermastamps and a 3 line roller for my upper lip area and around my eyes, so I should be all set.

I also plan to take some before photos, and hopefully in another 6 months or so I'll have "after" photos that show improvement.

Hi Sarah and fellow micro-needlers,

I'm planning a micro-needling regimen to address a few facial scars, wrinkles, and for general facial rejuvenation. I'd like to use the large dermastamp (80 needles, 1.5 mm) for fairly dense needling of my whole face, every 3 to 4 weeks.

Will one dermastamp be enough, per session, to treat my whole face, or should I have extras on hand? The instructions on the box say not to use more than 20 or 30 times, but I'm not sure how that will translate to one full face session.

(I'll also be using the smaller dermastamps and single needles to treat individual scars and some deeper wrinkles - the large dermastamp will be for the larger facial areas.)

Thank you - any input is appreciated!


Are you covering the cream with plastic wrap while you wait the allotted time?

For some reason people seem to miss that in the instructions (I did it myself years ago when I first used it) but it's a crucial step, otherwise it won't work.

I've always found Emla to be very effective, and I'm a wimp about pain so a good pain blocker is a must for me. I've tried sprays and creams from tattoo supply stores but they didn't seem to work as well.

Good luck - hope you get it all figured out soon!

Cesamaddictaol, I don't know if you're still interested in the Vaculifter but I own the "small" one for facial use (in other words, the very smallest one you can buy). I absolutely love it and think it can work really well as an adjunct to various types of needling, but I don't think it's powerful enough or precise enough to use for this type of very localized scar treatment. The suction devices being used to "lift" scars seem to be very small, and the VL isn't quite that small.

Bear in mind though that the VL is still plenty strong, and if you decide to give it a try, go easy at first (just a few passes over each area and keep them short, with little suction) or you'll end up with embarrassing red marks and bruises all over your face and neck :o  Just be patient and go slow enough to assess your tolerance and you'll do fine. :)
