How often should I be using microneedling to improve my skin?
My plan is do to some at home microneedling combined with treatments in my doctors office. How often can I do microneedling? I assume there is a point where there is diminishing effects if you do it too often.
It’s important to follow the directions on your at-home derma roller because if you don’t follow the instructions, you could damage your skin. Your skin could be transformed in less than eight weeks, and you could experience a reduction in fine lines, deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, acne scars and more. The boost of collagen production and smoother skin can be achieved if you follow the following guidelines.
0.25 mm microneedles could be used every two days or every day only if the skin can tolerate it.
0.5 mm microneedles could be used once a month or every seven days if the skin can tolerate it.
1.0 mm microneedles could be used every 6 to 8 weeks with professional supervision.
2.0 mm microneedles could be used every 6 to 8 weeks with professional supervision.
Beginners should just use .25 mm every other day or 0.5 mm every 4 to 6 weeks to achieve brighter, smoother, rejuvenated skin.
While it really depends on the skin issue, I found it effective to use at home dermarolling once a month. It is easy to irritate your skin if you do it more often than that. Sometimes you might see some bleeding but do not be alarmed. You need to give your skin time to heal and produce new collagen. Once a month was all I needed to help my skin care products go deeper and become more effective. If your skin is really sensitive, you may even want to try every two months. The objective is to make your skin look better, not be hurting after the treatment, so don't make the mistake of thinking that more is better. An occasional treatment is sufficient to improve your skin and give great results.
