Decoding the Differences: Micro Needling Rollers vs. Aesthetician Microneedling Brought to Light

Like many, you may be torn between the DIY derma roller microneedling approach and letting an aesthetician’s trained hands uplift your skin. Microneedling has enjoyed the spotlight in the realm of skincare, earning a good reputation for instigating skin renewal and treating diverse skin issues. However, it’s significant to be aware of the merits and demerits of both paths. 

The concept behind microneedling is fascinating – tricking your skin into thinking it’s time for self-repair. The result is the production of collagen and elastin, key players in skin rejuvenation. Yet, there’s a palpable dissiparity between performing a DIY procedure and availing a professional aesthetician’s service.  

A Closer Look at DIY Microneedling  

DIY microneedling’s pride and glory is a derma roller – a handheld gadget adorned with tiny needles that create minute channels in your skin. The bright side? It’s cost-effective, and you’re in command. While users have seen commendable skin changes, there are a few downsides: 

  • Needle size: Derma rollers for home usage typically have shorter needles, making the procedure less painful, but less effective as well due to shallow penetration resulting in less collagen production.
  • Sterilization: The effectiveness of home sterilization falls short against professional sterilization, raising the probability of infections.
  • Procedure: Lacking professional supervision, there’s a hazard of damaging your skin due to incorrect method or overuse.

Professional Microneedling: A Notch Above  

Switching over to professional microneedling, you’ll notice the advantages increase multifold. Here, an aesthetician uses a powered pen, armed with single-use, sterile needle cartridges. Here are the reasons which make this method a popular choice: 

  1. In-depth session: Professionals utilize needles that can delve deeper into the skin, resulting in more significant collagen production.
  2. Sterile environment: In a professional setting, the sterilization of instruments is guaranteed, greatly minimizing the risk of infections.
  3. Skilled handling: An experienced aesthetician is proficient in controlling the pen for maximum results and minimal damage.
  4. Customized care: Professionals have the ability to adjust the needle depth and tweak the procedure to meet your particular skin needs.

Clinical data suggests a noticeably higher rate of success for professionally administered microneedling treatments compared to at-home techniques. An impressive 90% of clients saw remarkable skin transformation after a handful of visits. Plus, certain skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, scarring, and aging signs necessitate specific needle depths, which are better regulated in a professional environment. 

Research published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology showcased that professionally administered microneedling proved to be 86.7 percent effective in reducing facial scars in the study participants. This effectiveness far outstrips home-based treatments. 

According to a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, those who chose professional microneedling experienced a doubling in skin elasticity improvement and a 1.5 times reduction in visible wrinkles.   

These remarkable findings underscore the predominantly successful results of professionally performed procedures. The controlled settings, premium equipment, higher success ratio, and enhanced skin health overwhelmingly advocate for professional microneedling.
