Benefits of Skin Needling with Microneedling Devices

If you've ever wanted to know the skin needling benefits of microneedling then we've come up with a complete list of reasons why you might want to get involved.

Benefits of Skin Needling

  1. Reduce Wrinkles and Visible Signs of Aging Skin

  2. Due to the microneedles stimulating collagen production, you can say goodbye to fine lines, wrinkles, signs of aging and hello to firmer skin and increased skin elasticity. Your face will have a noticeable improvement in appearance after only a few sessions. Collagen and elastin production should be the overall goal for everyone interested in anti-aging.

  3. Remove Acne Scarring

  4. If you suffer from acne scars, skin needling can solve this problem for you. The acne scars alter the normal collagen in the skin ,but through skin stimulation the repair process can begin to heal acne scarring.

  5. Remove Stretch Marks, Loose Skin and Cellulite

  6. Stretch marks are formed due to the rapid stretching of the skin, this is common with people who fluctuate in weight or have given birth. Stretch marks are difficult to remove, but with micro-needling with a needling size of 1.5mm or larger, you will improve or eliminate stretch marks from all areas of the body.

    Stretch marks require large needles such as 1.5mm, 2mm or 2.5mm. The good news is these don't hurt and only need to be used once every 6-8 weeks.

  7. Reduce Pigmentation Problems

  8. Things such as sunlight exposure, acne, scarring and other abnormal production of melanocytes can trigger hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone or darker skin tones. You can produce normal melanocytes when stimulating the superficial skin layer, which alleviates the problem.

  9. Shrink Enlarged Pores

  10. Large pores are common on both the nose and cheeks. You can help solve this problem by using an at-home 0.25mm derma roller. You should use this three times a week to get the best results. It will work by thickening the epidermal layer through the increase of collagen production.

  11. Prevent Hair Loss

  12. Micro needling treatment has been shown to help prevent hair loss or alopecia. It stimulates the growth factors to promote hair growth and thicker hair and also increase the size of the overall follicles.

  13. Beard Growth

  14. For people who find growing facial hair hard, you can incorporate microneedling into your routine to achieve a less patchy and full beard. This will take some time, but you will grow more hair with the right amount of stimulation and the correct needle size.

    Ladies don't usually have to worry about this unless they are prone to a lot of hair growth in the area. A general guide is if you already have too much hair growth in one location, it's best not to roll that area unless you want hair to grow even more.

  15. Age Spots and Sun Damage

  16. As time goes on and you gracefully age you will most likely develop age spots which make your skin look dull and older, stimulating collagen growth will dramatically help this problem and give you better-looking youthful skin.

  17. Skin Smoothing

  18. Some people just love to have soft and smooth skin. When skin needling on a weekly basis your skin with look much healthier and be smoother than you have ever thought possible. Microneedling usually takes a few sessions to see visible results, but if you're searching for softer or smoother skin, you should notice this in your skin texture after the first session.

  19. Rosacea Reduction

  20. Rosacea is a skin problem where the skin produces facial redness that leads to the breakdown of collagen. By regularly skin needling your skin you produce more collagen which will help this issue. It is however not recommended for people who have pustular or nodular Rosacea.

  21. Body Scarring

  22. Body scarring is another thing that can be worked on with micro-needling devices. The needles will break down the scarring and help the skin grow back much better. When working on body scarring, you will need a large needle and a large number of sessions, so this can be expensive if you don't do it from home yourself.

    If possible, we recommend using a 2.5mm derma roller once every eight weeks until you are happy with the appearance of the scarring.

  23. Boost Absorption of Topical Products

  24. It's well-known that microneedling immediately before applying your skincare products will help to boost the absorption process by allowing the product to penetrate deeper. If you've ever had a skincare serum that wasn't performing how you expected, then perhaps it wasn't being absorbed properly.

    If skin needling for the sole purpose of topical skincare absorption, it's best to go with a small needle such as the 0.25mm derma roller. This size can be used up to 3 times a week which is the most of any microneedling device on the market.

    Remember that not all skincare products can be used immediately after a microneedling treatment. Sensitive skin types should stay away from strong ingredients such as retinol or vitamin c until 12-24hrs have passed since your needling session has passed.

  25. Overall Skin Health

  26. There are many reasons our skin starts to age or look dull with time, but it can be treated with a regular skincare routine. The secret is stimulating the skin to grow back better than last time naturally. It said that we have entirely new healthier skin every seven years, so there's no excuse to work on your skin and get it generating a much healthier way - Naturally!

  27. Can Be Done From Home Easily

  28. The best thing about skin needling is that it can be done quickly from home. The safest way to do this is with a derma roller. Derma rollers come in multiple sizes and require no training to use. Just make sure you pick the right size for your skin concern to ensure you get the best results possible.

Benefits of At-Home Microneedling Treatment

  1. It Can Be Done On Your Schedule

  2. Depending on your skin concern, you may need weekly or monthly sessions. Fitting these into your schedule can be difficult when you factor in the travel time to the clinic, finding a car park, sitting in the waiting room and then the session. Skin needling can be done from home in less than 10 minutes right before you go to bed.

  3. Its Cheaper Than a Clinic

  4. Microneedling sessions at skin clinics are super expensive, and we don't know why. They can range anywhere from $100-$300 a session. Imagine paying this for weekly or monthly sessions when you can just do it yourself very quickly. Clinics often use big electronic microneedling pens that look like they work better than a home device but work the same way. Don't be fooled by the 'marketing'.

  5. Your Privacy is Safe

  6. Some people require microneedling in intimate areas such as the inner thighs or bum for stretch marks. We often find excuses not to go to a clinic because we're embarrassed to bare all. If skin needling from home, you can save the embarrassment. Make sure if you're working in a hard-to-reach area, you get a girlfriend to help you out.

  7. You Won't Get 'Sold'

  8. How many times have you walked into a skin clinic with the idea you're getting one treatment but then suddenly you're $500 deep in other treatments you didn't even know existed? This is very common, and while sometimes this can be a good thing, you often end up spending more money than you needed on treatments that didn't even help your primary concern.

    Benefits of Derma Rolling with a Derma Roller

  1. Its Safe, Quick & Easy

  2. Derma rolling with a minimally invasive TGA Registered device is very safe to do yourself and can be done in 5-10mins at home right before you go to bed. Fitting this into your schedule is no problem at all. It requires next to zero set-up time and can be done in the bathroom or bedroom.

  3. You Can Get Multiple Roller Head Sizes

  4. Good derma rollers come with the option to replace the heads in multiple sizes. This is great if you want to work on multiple skin concerns such as facial anti-aging and stretch marks on your stomach.

  5. You Don't Need Specialised Training

  6. Unlike electronic dermapens, you don't need specialised training to use a derma roller. It's very easy to simply roll the device over the skin in a safe and controlled manner. Electronic micro-needling pens should be reserved for trained professionals because, if done incorrectly may experience skin irritation.

  7. No Electricity Needed

  8. Derma rollers require no electricity or charging. You simply pull it out of its protective case, give it a quick spray with some sanitiser and get rolling. You don't need to worry about finding a power plug or outlet to charge batteries. This makes it perfect for travelling with you, even with carry-on-only luggage.

  9. It Doesn't Hurt

  10. Using a derma roller doesn't hurt for most sizes as it's a minimally invasive device. You will notice a tingling sensation on the skin. This is the blood rushing to the area and is where the magic is happening. The only time pain may be experienced is with super large needles for specialised body scarring.

  11. It's Fast & Has Zero Down Time

  12. Derma rolling from home is very quick and has no downtime. Using the derma roller before bed is recommended as you can just wake up the next day and go about your day as usual.

  13. It's Cheaper Than a Clinic Or Electronic Micro-Needling Pen

  14. The best thing about using a derma roller is that it's much cheaper than clinical sessions, laser treatments or expensive electronic derma pens. Buying a derma roller for $79.95 and using it 8-12 times is around $6 a session. In our opinion, that's a much better deal than $100-$300 a session. Imagine having to pay that for multiple treatments ๐Ÿ˜ข
