Things to know before Microneedling or Dermarolling

Longing for a picture-perfect look?

Want to give microneedling or dermarolling a try but wondering if there are risks associated?

A minimally invasive treatment, microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin with micro-fine needles. These microscopic punctures in the skin work like ‘micro-injuries’ and signal the skin to move on to the repair mode.

The process aims at triggering the body’s healing process to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Moreover, the punctures ensure that the products applied topically can penetrate deep down into the skin. The outcome is a plumper skin with a radiant glow.

However, like any other treatment, it is essential to take into consideration the risk factors to determine if it is the best choice for you.


Using microneedling on active acne poses the risk of infection. It is best to avoid blemished areas or consider microneedling after the pimples are gone.

Skin Reaction

While the procedure is safe, experts suggest that microneedling must be avoided on inflamed and irritated skin. If you have rosacea or eczema, microneedling is not advisable. Since the process leads to products being absorbed more deeply into the skin, there is the probability that the skin might react with the ingredients. It is also essential to be sure that you do not use products that are not meant to be used along with microneedling. A patch test of a microneedling product will help you ensure that the product can be safely used for your skin.

Reputed Spa

Make sure to always get the procedure done at a reputed spa with licensed professionals. The presence of hygienic and clean environment is necessary to ensure the treatment does not lead to an infection.

What makes In-Spa treatment more effective?

There are home microneedling devices available and you may wonder if it is a good option. While these are less expensive, there are key differences between an In-Spa and At-home treatment. The needles used by professionals are longer and created to penetrate deeper into the skin. This makes it suitable for even treating complex skin concerns like stretch marks and scarring.

In contrast, the needles used at home are shorter and blunt. While this makes home treatments less uncomfortable, it also means that it will have limited results. Moreover, the devices are difficult to clean and this increases the risk of infection.
