Does microneedling at home actually improve the skin?

What milometer microneedling should I use for an at home treatment? I know that when it is done in a medical office the treatment goes much deeper into the skin so I assume the deepest at home treatment would be best. Can microneedling at home actually improve the skin?

My at-home microneedling treatments have done wonders for my skin! I had some noticeable acne scarring on my face, as well as some fine lines, and a 1.0mm needle worked great to really minimize those areas. It depends on what kind of results you are looking for and what condition you are trying to treat, but the 1.0mm size is generally the largest you should go with for at-home use. I am not going to lie, dermarolling does hurt a little bit, but my complexion is really smooth now, and so the minimal discomfort was well worth it for the results received! My advice would be to go with the 1.0mm microneedling device for the most drastic at-home improvement. Also, be sure that you let your skin recover fully between treatments, which should be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks or so until you reach your desired results.

I was a little bit skeptical at first when I started doing at home microneedling treatments, and I was not sure what to expect. I can say that doing the treatments at home has helped my skin tremendously. My doctor told me that I should start with a smaller needle, so I purchased a 1mm needle and the results were fantastic. After just a few months I noticed that my skin was looking so much better than it was before the treatments. I highly suggest consulting with your doctor first so that they can help you figure out what size needle to start with based on your skin's needs. I also suggest that you follow the directions that come with your at home treatment, and do not use it more than directed as you could end up with worse skin than you started with.
