Professional skin needling has recently been linked to reducing signs of aging as well as removing acne scars. Typically this treatment is performed by a medical aesthetician, nurse, or physician. There are, however, a host of at-home microneedling devices which are much more cost effective than professional treatment. At-home microneedling uses shorter needles and can effectively help to reduce pore size, oil production, and fine lines. To use an at-home microneedling pen, you should choose an appropriate device, read all instructions, sanitize the device, carefully glide it over your skin, and clean and store the device properly following treatment.<ref>https://ift.tt/3adqBmc>

===Preparing for Microneedling at Home===
#Select a microneedling device. Prior to microneedling at home, you need to choose a device that is best suited for you. There are three different types of at home microneedling products: a derma roller, derma stamp, and derma pen. Derma rollers are the least expensive option and roll along your skin like a paint roller. Some dermatologists recommend derma stamps and derma pens because the vertical penetration is less painful and allows for easier maneuvering around the mouth, eyes, and nose.<ref>https://ift.tt/3adqBmc>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 1.jpg|center]]

#Determine the length of the needles. Most at home microneedling is performed using much shorter needles than those used by aestheticians. For instance, at a clinic needles can range in length from 0.5mm to 3mm depending on the type of treatment. When performing the treatment at home, you should use shorter needles. Needle lengths that range from 0.25mm to 1mm are recommended for general anti-aging procedures. If treating acne scars, you may want to use a longer needle around 1.5mm in length.<ref>https://ift.tt/3adqBmc>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 2.jpg|center]]

#Read all of the instructions. Before using a microneedling device, carefully read all of the instructions. The instructions will provide you with detailed information concerning set up, storage, and how to safely use the product. Each product is slightly different, so it is very important that you read the instructions that accompany the device you purchase.<ref>http://www.my-dermapen.com/how-to-use.html</ref>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 3.jpg|center]]

#Glide the derma roller across your face. Turn on the device and gently glide the roller across your face. You should move the roller vertically, horizontally, and diagonally across the surface of your skin. This should be done in stripes covering each section of your face. While moving the roller across your face, use your other hand to pull your skin tight. This will make it easier to maneuver the device.<ref>http://www.my-dermapen.com/how-to-use.html</ref>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 7.jpg|center]]

#*Do not go over the same section of skin too many times in 1 sitting. It is recommended that you do not pass over the same patch of skin more than 10 times per treatment.<ref>https://ift.tt/3adqBmc>

#Do not apply too much pressure. When using the microneedling roller, stamp, or pen, do not apply too much pressure. Instead, you should apply light to moderate pressure. It may tingle or feel slightly uncomfortable at first, but it will not damage your skin and should not cause bleeding.<ref>http://beautyproductwarnings.com/micro-needling</ref>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 8.jpg|center]]

#Lift the roller when changing directions. Always lift the roller completely off of your face when you are changing directions, then return it to your skin facing in the direction you are headed. Never drag or turn the microneedling roller from a vertical position to a diagonal position while it is still touching the surface of your skin. This could cause your skin to tear and may result in damage to your skin.<ref>http://beautyproductwarnings.com/micro-needling</ref>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 9.jpg|center]]

#Do not wash your face for 6 to 8 hours following treatment. Although microneedling does not damage your skin, it will likely be red and tender immediately following the treatment.

#Disinfect the microneedling device. Once you are finished using the device, rinse the needles under warm water and place it into a bowl of rubbing alcohol. This will disinfect the device of any bacteria that it may have picked up on the surface of the skin. It is very important that you keep the microneedling device clean and sanitary.<ref>https://ift.tt/3adqBmc>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 11.jpg|center]]

#Store the microneedling device in its original case. Following the cleansing process, store your microneedling device in its original case. This will help to ensure that the needles do not break or get damaged and will also keep the needles relatively clean between uses.<ref>http://beautyproductwarnings.com/micro-needling</ref>[[Image:Use a Home Microneedling Pen Step 12.jpg|center]]
