Who Is At-Home Microneedling Good for? The Answer May Surprise You

Written by Our Editorial Team

Microneedling may seem like a treatment du jour, but clinics have been performing this modern, minimally invasive procedure since the mid 90s. It’s popularity grew because it can be used to help with a variety of concerns – from skin tone to texture and beyond!

In recent years, it has evolved to be something you can do to enhance your skin from the comfort of your own home – quickly becoming a favorite part of many people’s skincare regimen

But now that it’s more accessible, who should consider adding microneedling to their routine? Does it work for everyone? Let’s dive into the main benefits below!

In Short, Who Is Microneedling For?

You should consider microneedling if you’re concerned about:

  • Aging skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Mild scars or hyperpigmentation, especially from acne
  • Skin discoloration or uneven skin tone
Benefit #1: Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

If you’re looking for that holy grail treatment to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, microneedling may be just that. The process includes small, hair-thin needles “punching” the skin, which creates microchannels.

The device penetrates just deep enough to help stimulate your skin’s healing process, so that it produces more collagen and elastin. According to Cleveland and Clinic, these are important proteins that keep your skin firm and smooth – thus plumping the look of your wrinkles and reducing signs of aging.

Benefit #2: Help improved texture and skin tone

Similar to the point above, microneedling penetrates deep into the skin, so it might work better for problems beneath the surface, such as acne scars. Essentially, acne scars are just collagen bundles on the top layer of the skin (dermis). The device stimulates the repair process on the skin, boosting collagen production for a smoother, more even appearance to your complexion

So if you have acne scars, multiple treatments can help fade the uneven skin over time. Just remember, consistency is key!

This repair process isn’t just useful for acne scars, however, it can also help your skin texture in the following ways:

  • Smoothes rough texture
  • Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Improve the look of hyperpigmentation
Benefit #3: Provide Better Overall Appearance

Good news! Even if you aren’t looking to improve one specific thing such as wrinkles or pigmentation, microneedling can still provide incredible results to your overall look.

Microneedling with products such as Qure’s Micro-Infusion can help the topical skin care products you apply give you better results. Those tiny microchannels that we mentioned earlier allow skincare ingredients to go deeper which will help your products penetrate better.

Deeper penetration equals quicker, more visible results. So whether you’re using something to hydrate your skin or revitalize your complexion, microneedling can help enhance your overall appearance with less time and less effort. In this sense, many people report seeing glowing skin after just one treatment!

Who Shouldn’t Try Microneedling?

Consider waiting if you currently have:

  • Sunburn
  • A skin infection
  • Painful or pus-filled pimples
  • Acne or are taking medication for acne
  • Frequent skin rashes

Talk to your healthcare provider if you have any doubts, but at-home microneedling is incredibly safe and effective when done correctly.

That’s why we recommend Micro-Infusion versus dermarollers when it comes to microneedling. It boasts more benefits than the traditional option.

  • Minimal pain: Although the needles themselves are actually longer than most derma rolling needle systems, the ultra-fine needles in the Micro-Infusion System are thinner than a human hair, so that means you’ll feel minimal to no pain during treatment.
  • Cleanliness: Due to a disposable needle head, the application is much cleanlier with the Micro-Infusion System.
  • Less damage: With Micro-Infusion, stamping is more of a refined process that doesn't over-damage the skin. Dermarolling, however, creates irregular micro-channels—especially if you “overstamp” your skin by over-rolling—that can actually lead to scars hyperpigmentation.
Is Microneedling Safe for All Skin Tones?

Microneedling is minimally invasive and safe for all skin tones, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association.

A Bit of Everything for Everyone

Microneedling is something that works for everyone. If you’re looking to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, or improve the look of pores and overall complexion, at-home microneedling is an amazing treatment to add to your weekly skincare regimen. Just want glowing skin for an important event? A few treatments from home can help boost your natural radiance. Time to hop on the trend? We think so!
