I've been using it on stretchmarks but not as often as I'd like because I just had eye surgery (PRK & Kamra In-lay). From prior use, some of my scars look so much better and my hands are a bit plumper.

Thanks for the link! I have also not been spending as long in the one area. Do you do your whole face in a sitting? It's been a while since I read the whole thread and can't remember if anyone has mentioned how long they are spending on a whole face session. I'm not keen on the timer 😏

Guys, would you mind sharing what the deepst setting is, you have used on your cheeks? 2 mm ? 3 mm ?


I have used 2.25mm on my cheeks and throat area, as they are more 'spongy'. Even then, the areas get pink but don't bleed much.

Compared to that, 1mm and 1.25 mm single needling a parenthesis line or perioral line will produce a lot of blood. I won't go too deep there.

Hi,
I was lurking on this forum and read all 28 pages about the derminator. I'm finally ready to buy one but noticed that owndoc list only a 5 year warranty, but a lot of the earlier posts on this forum mentioned it had a lifetime warranty. Is the machine less reliable now than before?

Write and ask them. I've found them responsive to questions. Anyway, 5 years warranty for an appliance is still pretty good these days. One can't get a 5 year warranty on anything like a washer or dryer where I live.

The derminator I have is great, and I doubt that the model is becoming any worse with further development. Even if I could only get 5 years out of mine and then had to buy another, I'd still consider it worthwhile.

I'm sounding like I work at owndoc, but I really don't Smile.

Hi, sorry for not answering sooner. I break it up into areas - I'll do around the lips and on my forehead one day, then cheeks and neck the net.

I've been goofing around and haven't used it in months. Got to start again!

My Derminator basically gets me to spend 1 minute on each square inch at 'fast' setting. I find this very slow, but realise that I've probably been cheating, going faster than I should, when I don't use the timer.

I've been doing various body parts on different days: shins (roller, Derminator took too long) one day, elbows another (much easier with Derminator - too painful with roller), neck and decolletage another, face hands and wrists only when I know I can have the next day as downtime. Trying to do all that in one day was putting me off. I find that the neck and decolletage just look pink but don't cause me downtime the next day, and the legs and elbows can be hidden away.

My cheeks are like the neck - fatty and just get pink, but my worst areas like nasolabial folds, upper lip and wrists look pretty scary the next day, so I like to hide away. Much worse if I've done single needling in the lines.

I have just received my derminator but not sure where to start! I have had 2 salon micro needling treatments. The first used a numbing cream and 2mm needles and the result was amazing...very red and tight but definite reduction in scars. The 2nd was about 12 months later with no numbing but I suspect smaller needles and no result...slight redness etc. I think they were 2 very different treatments.

So what's my first move??!!
Thanks for any advice Very Happy

Have you read the Owndoc instructions and forums (esp those dealing with acne scars, if that's your concern)?

Hi all

I've just ordered a Derminator, and I was wondering for those who were using AnteAGE Home MicroNeedling Solution - do you like it? Is it worth the money?

Thanks
KL

Hello all...just a quick question. Is it o.k. to buy a pre-owned Derminator? Of course, I would buy new needles. Thank you!

I bought a second hand one that was supposed to be unused, I cleaned the inside of the hand piece with alcohol (methylated spirits) before use.

From experience the inside of the hand piece can get fluid in it. I use a combo of vitamin C spray & Avene mineral spray and it wicks up into the hand piece. I have to make sure I clean this sterilise after and before each use. HTH

The website seems to be working now. I think you can only get it new from OwnDoc.

I am interested in purchasing one of these, know previously discounts were available but that doesn't seem to be the case now, is it worth waiting for these or was it just when they were first introduced?

Can I ask which actives you have found the most effective for scar reduction with these also. TIA xx

So I finally caved and ordered a Derminator last night, at like 11:30pm, holding a glass of wine. I ordered a (US plug) Derminator, 3 extra 9-needle cartridges and a tube of Infadolan. I did not get an email yet saying it has been shipped but I am sure I will get that email within a day or two. How exciting, finally! I have literally been eyeing the Derminator since its release and have purchased so many other devices in that period so I put my foot down and finally allowed myself to add something great to my arsenal. Also, I noticed the price kept going down, it started at around $200 and itís now $170 and itís been $170 for a while, so I figured it wasnít going much lower.

I have a little experience with microneedling. A few years back I got a manual roller and did my face however I was never able to do a proper aggressive roll because of the sensations and because I did not want to press too hard, therefore I donít think it did me much good. About a year or so ago I purchased a knock off MYM Dermapen on eBay and actually got a decent roll but I couldnít trust the machine, and after researching and listening to Sarah talk about the differences between the Derminator and the other microneedling pens (and microtearing), I had to finally get the Derminator because I do think microneedling is an EXCELLENT way to achieve beautiful skin at any age and I believe that the Derminator is the cream of the crop.

My main concern is improving texture, and some fine lines, I do have a few tiny scars that could use some plumping as well.

Be prepared because I am going to be all over this thread with questions and asking for tips, what length, how often, products before and after, etc. So thank you in advance for all the help and info! Smile

So very excited for this one! I have purchased so many skin care gadgets but this one I am especially happy for!

Iíll be (im)patiently waiting for it! Wink

Got an email yesterday saying that it was taken to the post office and handed over to be shipped. I should receive a tracking number maybe today or tomorrow as they don't release the tracking number until a day or so after it's shipped, they explained it all in the email.

How long did it take yours to ship to the US? I'm thinking it'll take about 1.5-2 weeks.

I already have a friend that wants me to do a treatment on her. I need to get pure HA for the slip, also I am looking at some CP serums to incorporate, maybe make a Vit C serum.

Do you guys recommend HA for the slipping agent or saline? Would I be able to use a "wound wash" saline spray? I like the idea of using HA as I know the needles will be pushing it deep into the skin.

So so so excited for the Derminator, finally.

Ha! I received my Derminator before even getting the tracking info, came on Thursday, I ordered it I believe the Wed/Thurs before. Crazy to make it to the US in about 6 days from Czech Republic. I opened it and set it aside, had a lot to do this weekend so I didn't want to have my face looking brutal lol. Will probably do a treatment this Friday immediately following work. I am really excited to get started with this. Bought some HA powder to make a serum as well. Gotta say, the machine is legit and well built! Worth every penny from just looking at it, we will see what sort of results I get down the road!

I got interested in micro needling a few years ago. Did it myself, with rollers and stamps, even though needles have ALWAYS been a phobia of mine. I was following the rules, reading everything that I could and felt good about it. I've considered ordering The Derminator several times but, in the end, decided not to. Reading some negative stuff about micro needling, I decided not to. So, recently, I did a peel and was ready to sign up for laser resurfacing. I'm half Portuguese so my dermatologist said that laser isn't suited for my, not very dark, olive complexion (hyper pigmentation). Ugh! I had such HIGH hopes! So, I got a ViPEEL, which was fun, and had planned to do eMatrix (radio waves) next. Read a BUNCH of reviews about it and basically, you pay A LOT of money with very few results. This all brought me back HERE. I'm FINALLY going to order The Derminator! I spent $250 on the peel and the eMatrix would have been, after several, required, treatments WELL over $1,000, so I figured that my, hard earned, money would be better spent on this tool. I've read many of the comments here, over the years, and most people seem positive, so, WHY NOT? I did have some worries about it making it's way to the U.S.. Has anyone living in California ever not received their order? I got the feeling that sometimes it doesn't make it through. Guess I can take a shot but would HATE to lose over $200! I'm cheap and that's why I'm a "Do-it-Youselfer". BTW, I am going to do another ViPeel but I'm ordering it online and saving a few bucks! Ha!
