Is microneedling at home effective?

Microneedling at Home Compared to Med Spa Microneedling

As one of the premier providers of microneedling in Toledo and Ottawa Hills, Blush Aesthetics gets a lot of questions from our patients about the effectiveness of at-home microneedling devices. As you could imagine, the type of results you can get at home just don’t compare to the results of microneedling in an office. 

So, is microneedling at home effective? Let’s take a look.

What is the difference between at-home microneedling and in-office microneedling?

Buying an at-home microneedling tool is probably going to be a waste of your time and energy. At-home devices are designed to a higher level of general safety because the people using them are not trained. They penetrate only superficially, so not as deep as getting microneedling in an office or med spa and certainly not as deep as microneedling with RF. 

But worse than not being effective, these at-home microneedling tools aren’t even all that safe! At-home devices tend to lack disposable tips. If they’re not properly sanitized, the device will harbor bacteria and fungus, which will cause infections. It could lead to serious skin issues if you’re not extremely careful with at-home microneedling. 

The bottom line? Whether you’re getting microneedling or microneedling with RF, keep it safe and effective by choosing a great provider like Blush!
