11Why is microneedling not permanent?
Since the skin is a living tissue subject to continual change, microneedling is not permanent. In addition, each individual’s skin is unique, so the results of a microneedling pen last vary from person to person, depending on various factors.

13What happens if you microneedle too deep?
Even without side effects, your skin will take days or even weeks to recover, depending on how deep the needles penetrate your skin. Your skin is delicate and vulnerable to external damage from pollution and other chemicals, as well as infection. Microneedling can also result in microscopic skin scarring.
Although the scars are not apparent, the scars will not be noticeable anytime soon. The scarring gets worse and worse as the condition progresses. The more scar tissue in your skin means less room for collagen, elastin, and other essential proteins associated with healthy skin to adhere. Clients are put in danger of suffering scars and/or hyperpigmentation if repeated application of excess pressure with microneedles.
14Do at Home microneedling rollers work?
Microneedling at home with a lesser-grade needle is not going to be as effective as an in-office therapy, which uses a numbing cream and more penetrative needles to produce long-term results such as scar reduction and wrinkle smoothing, particularly after three to five sessions.
“If you try it at home, choose a pen with short needles, do not apply enough pressure to crack the skin and cause bleeding, and be sure to sanitize the instrument properly between uses,” Dr. Hartman recommends.
At home, you can expect promising but not so good results. My skin is noticeably smoother and more even toned after a month of testing, and there is always a hint of a temporary glow behind the temporary flush. But my skin is still swollen the next morning, which is baby hellin’ soft.
