Below are some answers to our most frequently asked questions about Dermafile™.
How does Dermafile compare to the new Skin Needling?
Skin Needling versus Dermafile treatmentsI have been asked a lot lately about skin needling and how it compares to Dermafile. I have to admit I have never done skin needling so I don’t have any experience personally. But I have read up on the process and even watched some treatments on you tube. I was immediately a little squeamish by the sight of blood and the trauma that was being caused in the videos. But I was also impressed by the results. I can honestly tell you that any time you abrade the skin and cause trauma you will build collagen and thicken the dermis. That is exactly what Dermafile does without all the trauma or blood. And because you are building collagen and leveling the surface you are resurfacing the skin safely over time…The nice thing about Dermafile is that you can be as gentle as you need to be or you can be as aggressive and you need to be. I have personally filed away years of sun damage and skin tags with regular use. You will also smooth away lines, wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks slowly or aggressively depending on your level of experience and expertise.
How do I clean the Dermafile™?
Clean your Dermafile™ by using a hospital grade enzyme detergent for cleaning surgical tools. An ultrasonic jewelry cleaner is a great place to clean them with the enzyme. Follow with rinsing well and soak for 10-15 minutes in a hospital grade disinfectant. Rinse well. Dry and store in a clean dry place.
