Is At-Home Microneedling Even Worth Considering?
- Posted on: Aug 30 2018
It’s nice to be able to save a little bit of money here and there which is why do it yourself methods can be so effective. And although it’s one thing to paint your door on your own, it’s another thing to try do it yourself skin care techniques like microneedling from the comforts of your home. However, with at-home microneedling products gaining more and more popularity, it has many of our patients asking, “Is It worth it to invest in at-home or in-office treatments?” Let’s take a closer look to see what Dr. Benjamin Dunkley has to say.
If you’re really trying to save money, then you may think that at-home microneedling tools will do the trick. Even though some at-home microneedling devices claim to help with collagen induction and may also help to improve small blemishes and hyperpigmentation, the needles on these devices aren’t very deep which means they won’t give you that good of results. Remember that the deeper the needle is, the greater the results you are likely to receive.
Here at our office, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley uses a collagen induction treatment called DermaPen. DermaPen is designed to help penetrate the skin deep enough to give patients real results after just one treatment. With its unique design, DermaPen works to make hundreds of tiny punctures in the skin which then signals your body to naturally respond by creating newer, healthier, collagen-filled skin in its place.
When it comes to collagen induction therapy, you get what you pay for. Even though in-office treatments are typically more expensive than at-home kits, the results are way more noticeable. If you want to learn more about DermaPen and whether or not it’s the right treatment for you, schedule your consultation at our Murray office and give us a call at (801) 268-2650.
