Microneedling: DIY or Professional?

Our cosmetic dermatology team offers microneedling in Houston to create toned, rejuvenated skin for our patients. However, as with any trendy treatment, “DIY microneedling” tools have flooded the market, claiming to provide professional-grade results. These at-home devices work similarly—creating micro-injuries to the skin—but are often less powerful and less safe than professional treatments. Dermatologist-provided treatments create better results for 2 main reasons:

  1. Skincare professionals use advanced microneedling devices that more precisely control wounding.
  2. Technique is very important with microneedling, and a dermatologist knows how to avoid injury and nurture the skin.

You deserve the best when it comes to skincare, so trust a trained dermatologist to perform your procedure. If you want to learn more about safe, professional microneedling from a dermatologist in Houston, request a free consultation online or call (713) 791-9966.
