What’s The Deal With Microneedling at Home

microneedling at home

Let’s talk about microneedling shall we? Maybe we should start with what it is…

Microneedling stimulates the skin and induces rejuvenation deep in the skin. Tiny needles pass over your skin and then moisturizers, serums, and oils are applied. Your cells respond to the stimulation and the natural rejuvenation process starts immediately. The result is firmer, smoother skin.

You can have a microneedling service professionally done. That isn’t done with a roller, it is done with a tool that moves up and down. It’s also a more powerful process so you will see results. But for a light minor version, you can do microneedling at home! I use the GloPRO from BeautyBIO.

Before we break down the process, let’s do some FAQs.

Does it hurt? Nope, not at all. It’s seriously painless.

How often should you do it? I do it 2-3 times a week, but it can be used daily.

When can you see results? It depends, but it has been clinically tested to show results within 30 days.

How much pressure should you apply? Light pressure. You can let the tool do the work for you.

How should you care for your tool? You can fill the empty spritzer bottle provided with isopropyl alcohol. If you don’t purchase the set you can just use a spray bottle. After each use, spray your attachment and let air dry. Store in a clean environment. If you purchase the GloPRO, it comes with a storage case that you can keep it in.

I purchased a microneedling set from BeautyBio. My GloPRO kit includes:

The Balance: this is a pH balance cleanser that gently restores natural pH balance. It also preps your skin for maximum absorption and removes make-up!

The GloPRO: this the microneedling regeneration tool that stimulates skin’s natural regenerative process. It creates bouncy new skin cells and enhances product absorption. This tool also vibrates for additional stimulation and cell turnover.

The Nightly Deluxe Mini: this is a peptide filling serum that organically identifies and repairs damage deep within the skin. This serum helps fill and plump the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Ultimate Deluxe Mini: This is a hydrating vitamin cream that helps brighten and even skin tone with natural vitamin C. It is also rich in natural plant extracts that help to retain moisture and repair dull and dry skin.

There are several different attachments for different parts of the body: face (restores volume and targets wrinkles), body (smooth dimpling and firms uneven skin), eye (rescues tired eyes and lifts crepey skin), lips (plumps pout and smooths lip lines).

The steps for microneedling:

1. Cleanse with The Balance. Just wash your face. Easy as that!

2. Use a prep pad to prepare and condition your skin. The set comes with some, but you can purchase more!

3. Use your GloPRO in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal directions. Use light pressure for 60 seconds in each target area.

4. Apply The Nightly to enhance your skin and then finish with The Ultimate Moisturizer.
