Why You Should Have Microneedling Done By a Professional

Posted on December 10, 2021

Because of microneedling’s increasing popularity over the last few years, it’s likely that you’ve heard of it. It’s one of the best options for transforming your skin and addressing a wide variety of skin concerns with great results. If you’re looking to get your hands on it, then it can be tempting to look for at-home solutions – especially when looking at the price tag. It’s important to know that there’s a reason that microneedling comes at a cost and that you can save yourself money and frustration by receiving your treatments from an experienced and certified skincare specialist. Here’s what to know about professional microneedling and why it’s worth the price.

Better Results

Although it may seem easy enough to purchase a derma roller and roll away at home, this can be a waste of money (at best) and very damaging to your skin (at worst). Even high-end derma rollers are not designed to reach the deeper levels of the skin like professional devices, meaning they may not produce any noticeable results. With the help of a skincare professional, you’ll achieve more transformative results where you need them rather than simply damaging the skin without the benefits.

Less Risk

Microneedling, like every skincare treatment, comes with risk. The best way to mitigate risk is by selecting an experienced provider – ideally under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist – who can intervene if you experience complications and ensure your skin remains healthy. If you opt for microneedling at home, you can put yourself at greater risk of infection or scarring – potentially leading to unsatisfactory results and the need for professional care.

Lower Cost

This may seem counterintuitive, but professional microneedling comes with a higher guarantee that you’ll achieve the results you’re hoping for. With fewer treatment sessions and more targeted treatment, your microneedling specialist can make sure you get the most out of your money. On the other hand, trying derma rolling at home can ultimately add up when you don’t achieve the results you want. In fact, taking into consideration all the tools and products you may try in pursuit of results, it’s easy to wind up spending the same amount or more than professional treatments – and without the results to show for it.

The Bottom Line

It can seem intimidating to look at the cost of microneedling, but consider it an investment in your confidence. If you feel that microneedling is truly worth it to you, then consulting a professional provider is key to keeping yourself safe and satisfied. They can help you develop a customized package of treatments and products that work with your budget to ensure you get the most out of your costs.
