Microneedling is an very popular skin treatment in the USA, that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and the skin’s overall appearance. During quarantine, the woman still wants to look beautiful and attractive. And the easiest way seems to go to YouTube and see what you can do and how. Any way, we always see a lot of beautiful pictures before and after on Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest, the afters revealing a smooth, bright. We decide that while we are at home we will learn how to do this treatment. So what could be the problem with at-home Self-Microneedling? Here are some problems! Let’s look at the problem from the professional side for use at home. Let’s dive into everything that’s wrong with a “professional” at home microneedling (derma pen).
What is Microneedling?
On the Internet we find that Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to treat scar tissue, lax skin, wrinkles, and large pores by increasing collagen production. It sounds scary—and it does involve needles piercing the skin—but the needles are very fine and short, and only mildly uncomfortable. And the advantages of the procedure greatly outweigh the disadvantages and that sounds good.
However, is a professional procedure for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles, smoother skin, and even smaller pores! Using the Collagen and hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin and tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen. While some areas are more sensitive than others, we can apply a topical numbing agent to help with any discomfort. The procedure typically takes 25-35 minutes total for the face, however the time varies based on what area is being treated.
Why should not use At-Home Microneedling Devices:
“The treatment is fairly comfortable due to the topical numbing cream we apply prior to treatment,
Safety is a very important thing when it comes to performing skin care procedures. Microneedling treatments in the office are carried out by trained medical aesthetics or nurses in a safe environment, which can give you excellent results. This will be different from Pen who, for example, bought on Ebay from China and the question will not be how much it costs but what it really does. The public is not trained / not certified for micro-learning. And videos on YouTube will not teach you correctly because many details are usually not revealed to everyone, and yet you yourself cannot achieve certain angles and the right approach to your face.
Sterilization is extremely important when it comes to microneedling. Not only do you need to make sure your face is completely clean before, but you also have to make sure you are keeping the needles sterile during the treatment. It is also very important to keep your face clean and protected post treatment. When we finish the procedure in the office, we put a “liquid bandage” on your skin to keep all those open wounds clean.
There has been cases where individuals will get staph infections because they are not taking all sanitary precautions. Please do not risk the “cheap” at-home alternatives.
3.Dermal pen and Needle Depth
What kind of Derma Pen to use and what games to use, and how many needles should be and why. After all, the depth of the needle can be adjusted with Microneedling handles. Professionals are trained to know how deep to go into which area of the face and how many passes you can make. The public does not. They can injure themselves, prolong downtime and, worst of all, do more harm to the skin.
Other difficult questions
Other difficult questions may arise that only an experienced master practitioner understands how to do, such as for example. Is it worth putting the topical numbing cream for pain relief, if so what and for how long. After which topical numbing cream there will be no allergy and is safe.
And if after the procedure pigment spots appear and then what to do.
Unfortunately, many women try to do this or other procedures at home and most often call me in order to fix it. As a rule, I don’t do it because the result is already corrupted and it’s 100% impossible to fix it there.
