MICRONEEDLING FAQs

INFORMATION

This minimally invasive treatment creates microscopic channels in the epidermis encouraging the production of collagen and elastin to create smoother, firmer and more even toned skin.

Used to treat everything from fine lines to acne scarring and enlarged pores, this treatment requires no downtime.

Cosmetic Microneedling rollers use needles up to 0.5mm. There is no downtime, no need for numbing cream and can be done at home.

Medical Microneedling use needles anywhere between 0.5mm to 3mm. Medical Microneedling should be performed by a Doctor or Dermatologist. Numbing cream is required and there is a chance of micro bruising, scabbing and downtime.

Microneedling and Dermaroller are the same thing, just different names. ‘Dermaroller’ is the registered trade name of a specific brand. OLIVIEREWILSON is the registered trademark of our brand.

HOW TO USE

Start with our 0.3mm FACE roller. Stick with this if your skin is thin. You can progress to the 0.5mm FACE roller when you feel more confident using these essential skincare tools or if you have thicker skin

Similar to razor blades, over time the needles on your roller will become blunt. Your device should last three to four months.

We advise two times per week. Leave a couple of days in bewteen each treatment for the skin to rejuvenate.

The entire face should take approximately 2 mins. See our How To Guide for more info.

A light pressure is sufficient when microneedling. Be careful as you get close to your eyes where the skin is much thinner and more fragile. We advise stopping at the cheekbone.

Before and after use, sanitise your roller using the OW Sanitising spray. This product contains only Water and Hypochlorous Acid which has been Dermatologically tested and endorsed by Allergy UK. It is an anti-bacterial spray, immediately killing 99.9% of bacteria. There is no need to rinse residue.

BENEFITS

Scarring is caused by a process called fibrosis. This is great when healing larger wounds, as it makes everything stick together. However often beneath the skin, the ‘glue’ is so strong that it can pull the skin down and create pock marks or scars. Microneedling can help break down fibrosis underneath the skin, allowing the skin to ‘let go’ and release the surface hence reducing the appearance of the scar.

Yes. Microneedling boosts your skin's ability to regenerate itself and targets a multitude of skin issues, from fine lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation, acne scars and ageing skin.

Yes, microneedling increases blood circulation, stimulates hair follicles, maximises product absorption and causes the release of growth factors. Growth Factors are responsible for the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and is essential for hair growth. This strengthens hair follicles so they hold on to hair for longer, minimising hair loss.

Yes. Microneedling will improve pigmentation, hydration, light scarring, spider veins and can improve cellulite. Deeper scars may require medical microneedling.

OTHER

We suggest you avoid Microneedling during pregnancy. There is so much hormonal change taking place in the body during pregnancy and there is a slight risk of hyperpigmentation.

Be kind to your skin and apply hydrating, nourishing serums and masks to keep your skin well hydrated.

We advise waiting 2 weeks after Botox and Filler to allow everyting to 'settle'.

Reach for Hyaluronic Acid (HA) serum. HA hydrates at the surface for an instant plumping effect, but also at deeper skin layers where it replenishes our moisture reservoirs. It is often referred to as a moisture magnet as it provides the skin with sheer moisture to boost hydration, reduce wrinkles, and promote an even skin tone.

The combination of Microneedling followed by HA will help restore skin’s youthful bounce and glow.

After microneedling it is best to avoid hot baths and saunas. This can cause the skin to sweat and can be stinging. It is also advised to avoid strong sunlight and refrain from applying self tanning products for 48 hours.
