1Is microneedling effective at home?
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.
2How often should I microneedle at home?
If you’re trying microneedling at home, you should start with a short-needled dermaroller. You can use your dermaroller with 0.1mm needles or less, 2-3 times a week. Maximum results are obtained when using a serum as a supplement. It’s important to monitor and maintain your weekly microneedling routine.
If you are using longer needles, you must wait at least 4 to 6 weeks before starting the next microneedling procedure. This is because microneedling causes micro wounds in the skin that must be treated before the second treatment. Your skin needs time to heal, giving it the youthful glow.
In addition, cellular turnover takes about 4 to 6 weeks, depending on your age. Before starting a new regiment, it’s best to wait and allow your cells to be replaced and renewed. If you microneedle in this period, you’d be re-damaging the skin that is about to be replaced by cell turnover.
Secondly, microneedling stimulates our body’s collagen and elastin production.
3Can home microneedling damage skin?
“Not only can you make bruising and track-mark lines from using too much pressure, but the wrong technique can also result in micro-tears in the skin, leading to scarring and hyperpigmentation,” Montlake says.
4What should I use after microneedling at home?
Following microneedling, hyaluronic acid can be used, and in some cases it has been used to help boost collagen production after your procedure. If your skin is dry, it’s usually safe to use coconut oil as an emollient to lock in moisture and hydrate your face after microneedling.
5What happens if you microneedle too often?
Microneedling is Too Often Failure to do so will delay healing, inflammation, inflammation, and slow results, which we don’t want to do to our skin. Collagen is already present in the skin up to a month after microneedling, so be patient.
If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.
Needless are not rolled into skin and are rolled onto skin instead, so the micro-hole it creates tend to be wider shaped cones, which is why giving two weeks between each session is preferable.

9Can you microneedle your lips?
When microneedling your lips, you should not only focus on the actual lip skin, but also the area immediately surrounding the lips, where fine lines (also called feathering) can appear. In addition, combining your microneedling treatment with a lip enhancing serum will benefit the entire mouth area by increasing moisture.

12Which is better microdermabrasion or microneedling?

13What do I put on my face after microneedling?
Post-microneedling, hyaluronic acid serums should be used. Use this from days 1 to 14, from microneedling to hydrate and replenish the skin. You can apply hyaluronic acid, toners, or moisturisers with a base of green tea extract, Vitamin E, kiwi oil, and linseed oil to the skin from 1 to 4 days.

Avoid Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications (i.e. Ibuprofen, Aleve), blood thinners, herbal supplements, Vitamin E, and Fish Oil for at least one week prior to and the day of microneedling to minimize bruising risk- you may restart these the day following your treatment.
15Why does my skin look worse after microneedling?
