You know your dermatologist and aesthetician are experts at all things skincare, and one of their most recommended treatments is microneedling. Sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, dull skin, acne scars, stretch marks, and even cellulite are all skin issues which microneedling can treat, and the results are insanely impressive. Microneedling delivers the most bang for your buck when it comes to treating multiple skin conditions with a single procedure, however that buck can get pretty high when having microneedling performed in your dermatologist's or aesthetician’s office. Thankfully, you can get the same benefits (and results) from microneedling at home, with no downtime, and without eating ramen noodles for a month. Want to know more? Here are six reasons you should start microneedling at home (like right now).
Microneedling at Home Saves Money
Okay, this one is obvious. But trust us, you’ll appreciate the savings every time you pull out your microneedling tool. Microneedling, either at home or in a doctor’s office, isn’t a one and done type of procedure. It works by puncturing the skin (we’re talking tiny, non-visible, painless pricks) to stimulate collagen production. Collagen production equals fuller, healthier skin cells, fewer visible fine lines and wrinkles and a reduction in the appearance of scars. It also means smoothing any uneven texture such as cellulite. When professionally treated, most areas of the skin require at least three microneedling sessions, with some areas requiring upwards of six. At approximately $300-$500 per session, the cost can really add up. Not so with at-home microneedling. Once you make the initial investment on your microneedling tool, (the GloPRO Microneedling Tool costs less than a single in-office microneedling treatment) you’re set.
Microneedling at Home Saves Time
Treatment time for in-office microneedling falls somewhere in the middle when compared to other skin treatments. Averaging approximately thirty minutes to an hour for each treatment (per area), it’s not going to eat up your entire day, but it’s an unnecessary time suck considering you can achieve the same results from the comfort of home in less than a third of the time. And remember, you’re likely committing to three to six appointments, which means time can really begin to be an issue. Instead of rearranging your appointments and struggling to find time for several reoccurring doctor’s visits, you can make a 60-second date with yourself every night right before going to bed. Unlike in-office treatments, at-home microneedling can be performed daily, allowing you to experience rapid and visible results.
Microneedling at Home Requires Little or No Downtime
If you’ve seen a friend’s face immediately after an in-office microneedling treatment you can attest to the fact they aren’t going to be posting selfies for at least a day or so. In-office treatment can be intense, painful, and leave the skin bright red and irritated; kind of like getting a sunburn without a relaxing trip to the beach. Your red-faced friend was likely on house arrest for up to 48 hours post treatment. That costs time and money and makes it a no-brainer when considering using at-home microneedling instead. Not only is at-home microneedling much less invasive than in-office treatments, there are zero negative side effects. You might experience a slight flush of the skin, signifying your skin being stimulated, and it quickly fades in a matter of minutes. Plus, when you microneedle at home, you can easily treat at night and tap into skin’s natural nighttime regeneration process that occurs while you sleep. It’s like two treatments for the price of one.
Microneedling at Home Allows Product to Deeply Penetrate Your Skin... Daily
When you get a microneedling treatment at your derm’s office, you’ll walk out with your face slathered in a cream or serum you don’t have at home and maybe aren’t able to purchase. When you microneedle at home, you can apply your favorite cream or serum immediately after the treatment every single day. The tiny, invisible micro-channels in your skin are able to absorb a much higher percentage of the product you apply immediately after you microneedle. When skin absorbs product at a deeper cellular level, it’s able to use it faster and more effectively. Products like BeautyBio The Nightly Retinol Repair Serum and The Quench Rapid Recovery Facial Cream are specially formulated (without any harsh or environmentally unfriendly ingredients) to penetrate the skin more effectively after microneedling. Better absorption also means you may end up using less product in the long run; when your skin is properly absorbing the product, you may not need as much. In fact, many skin care lines now recommend that their serums be applied after microneedling.
Microneedling at Home is Painless
In-office microneedling is painful, there’s no way around it. While some practitioners will numb your face (an equally uncomfortable feeling), the post-procedure pain is still something you’ll have to consider. In-office microneedling uses much longer needles than in-home treatments. Because of this, you can end up with some temporary bruising on top of that aforementioned sunburn effect; not exactly ideal or comfortable. At-home microneedling is completely painless and uses much shorter, smaller needles that don’t irritate skin or leave behind bruising. Using a derma-roller at home feels equivalent to using a good exfoliating scrub - most users find the feeling of microneedling completely comfortable if not enjoyable. There’s also zero need to apply pressure when microneedling, just let the weight of the tool work its magic.
You Can Microneedling in Privacy
Microneedling isn’t only beneficial for your face. The effect of microneedling the skin to produce new collagen is beneficial on scars, cellulite, stretch marks, and sagging skin just about anywhere on your body. This means you can smooth stubborn cellulite, firm up sagging skin around the knees, and blur power stripes on the torso all from the comfort of your home in complete and total privacy. You’ll need to make certain you have the appropriate attachment for the body part which you are trying to treat (some microneedling attachments cover a larger surface area and have larger needles for areas other than your face). The GloPRO Body MicroTip Attachment is a fan favorite in the GloPRO system and is specifically designed to target problem areas on the body. When you choose to microneedle at home, you can treat any area of your body privately and effectively.
Microneedling is an incredibly effective way to deliver visible, noticeable results to problem areas on your skin. Capable of reducing the appearances of aging by combatting fine lines and wrinkles, firming sagging skin, reducing the visibility of cellulite, stretch marks and scars, microneedling is a great way to treat multiple skin issues in one easy at-home session. Performing microneedling at home is a great choice as it’s convenient, saves time and money, and delivers equally impressive results. In-home microneedling is also painless, involves zero downtime, and can be done daily. Using a microneedling tool at home allows you to get the most out of your current skin care products by allowing the products to penetrate more deeply and work more effectively. Unlike in-office treatments, DIY microneedling can be done privately and can still treat just about any area of your body. With the availability of everything you need at home, such as different sized microneedling tool attachments, you can achieve professional looking results you’ll be extremely happy with, forgoing the cost and time of in-office procedures.
