Are At-Home Microneedle Treatments Effective?

Skin Rejuvenation Sugar Land TXIf you have certain skincare concerns and are skincare-obsessed (like us), then you probably spend a decent amount of time learning about new products to fight wrinkles and fade scars. When we finally decide to buy a product, we’re pretty much sure that it will do everything we need it to. And it’s not just wishful thinking: we’ve done the research. So when it doesn’t give us the results it promised, even the results it should (based on the ingredients), we’re a little dejected.

But, shouldn’t we all realize that at-home products won’t give us the results we’re looking for after just a few uses? If you want quick results, you need to see a professional. But, if you’re willing to put in the time, are dermarollers or at-home microneedle treatments effective? Keep reading.


Since at-home microneedle treatments have become so popular, you can find all sorts of options online. You can find some for as little as ten dollars! But, when it comes to your skin, it’s very important to make sure you have a quality product to get the results you want, but also because you don’t want to cause more problems!

Dermarollers with surgical-grade needles are important, because cheap needles can bend or break. You do not want a needle stuck in your face, so do your research.


It’s important to understand what a dermaroller is before you start using it on your face. Those little needles can cause infections or make acne worse if used incorrectly. Dermarollers may cause trauma that can lead to scarring, so be careful and follow the instructions.


Ultimately, some people love at-home dermarollers, and others are less excited about the idea. It’s up to you if you want to take the plunge, but do your research and find out if the dermaroller can treat what you’re looking for. If you want to boost collagen production, for example, you will likely want to see a professional. If you want to give your favorite products a boost, then a dermaroller can help those products get into the skin deeper.
