A number of patients often are confused and overwhelmed with the many different types of facial treatments available for patients and the various information available online.
A lot of patients find information on the internet saying that automated micro-needling treatments are basically the same thing as dermaroller treatments. Patients first question when they see this is, “why pay for a micro-needling treatment, when I can buy my own dermaroller?”.
Essentially the two types of treatments have the same end goal, by stimulating the skin to produce its own collagen, preventing and reversing the signs of aging in a totally natural way. One of the biggest differences between the two treatments is the fact that the needles on a dermaroller do not penetrate the skin vertically. So whether you are using a dermaroller on a patient or yourself, the needles enter and exit the skin at an angle. The angle of the micro-needles can actually make tears in the skin and create a larger micro-channel than desired. When comparing the two treatments, the micro-needles of the Harvest MicroPen enter and exit the skin vertically. The micro-channels that are created with automated micro-needling are vertical, which is the desired result.
The other main difference between the two treatments is the person actually performing the treatments. It always recommended to have a professional esthetician or dermatologist perform either treatments, but automated micro-needling devices are required to be used by licensed estheticians, registered nurses or doctors. There are many patients using dermarollers on themselves which can be dangerous and cause more damage than what is trying to be corrected. When a professional is performing micro-needling treatments they also use topical gels like Hyaluronic Acid in combination to give the patient an improved result.
