Is Microneedling at Home Safe?

Microneedling is one of the most popular skin care treatments available in Boulder, due in no small part to how well it works and how easy it appears to be. Even though anyone can buy a microneedling kit for home use, there are several essential things to keep in mind.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
There’s no arguing that this non-invasive and minor skincare treatment, also called collagen induction therapy, delivers noticeable results. It lessens wrinkles and scars, tightens loose skin, and refreshes aging skin. Due to a series of tiny puncture wounds delivered by a roller studded (at home device) with fine needles, the skin launches a healing and recovery effort. The increased production of collagen that’s a part of your skin’s healing response plumps it up, leaving your appearance smoother and more youthful.
Can I Do Microneedling at Home?
There are several microneedling skincare tools available for at-home use. But they are not likely to provide the same results your aesthetician can achieve. The needles do not reach the same depth as a professional microneedling roller can. For some people, they shouldn’t; a trained and experienced aesthetician can determine the best way to approach your skin and select a needle depth that’s perfect for your skin type and condition. It is always better to trust your trained aestheticians who use an FDA approved device over “at-home microneedling.”
Is Microneedling at Home Safe?
It can be, but it’s risky, and some of the risks can be hard to determine on your own. Even if you’re aware that surgical steel and titanium needles are standard for professional microneedling wands, how can you be sure the one you buy meets those standards? Complications can also arise when needles are so slightly bent you can’t even tell by looking at them or using skincare products post-treatment that are not appropriate for wounded skin. It’s also hard to thoroughly sterilize an at-home microneedling tool. You could find yourself with red and inflamed skin and bumps called granulomas or bacterial infection.
