IS MICRONEEDLING SOMETHING I CAN TRY AT HOME?
It is not advisable to buy a dermal roller to use at home. There are several reasons for this, but the most significant is the risk of infection. Without a professional sterilizing the treatment site, there is a significant risk that impurities on your skin may remain and get into the micro-wounds. Even worse, there is a risk that the needles used for treatment were not properly sterilized.
Moreover, there is no way to get a prescription topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during treatment. At-home dermal rollers are considered cosmetic devices rather than medical devices. They are not regulated by the FDA for safety and efficacy and do not penetrate the skin as deeply as the SkinPen. Thus, you will not get the results you want, even if your technique is perfect.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER TREATMENT?
Immediately after treatment, you will notice that your skin looks smoother and more radiant. After a month, you will notice that your skin is significantly tighter.
