Is Microneedling Safe At Home
While there are many microneedling solutions that can be done at home, the best and most effective method is to go to a dermatology and let a professional handle it. There are many variables to consider when doing skin needling. For starters, the procedure deals with needles penetrating the skin. When done improperly, scars can be left and a patient can make themselves vulnerable to infection. Additionally, dermatologists know how deep the needles should be and they know how to safely roll the skin.
While microneedling is valuable and effective, it’s safest when done by a trained professional. To learn more about the microneedling procedures offered by Skin Wellness in Hoover Alabama, please call our office at 205-871-7332.
