The Microneedling at Home Guide: Benefits, Risks, and How-To

I’ve never been a fan of needles. I’m not saying I cry whenever I have to get a shot—okay, maybe I tear up a little—but using a needle device, even a “microneedle,” as part of my skincare routine seemed too terrifying to even try. But then I ended up going down a TikTok rabbit hole about microneedling and dermaplaning and their benefits—glowy skin and improved texture, to name just a couple—and knew I needed to try it.

While microneedling is designed to be done by a professional, there are options for microneedling at home, too. But let me—and the microneedling expert I spoke to, innovative tool guru Kerry Benjamin—be very clear: Using a derma roller at home can be dangerous and damage your skin if not done properly. As ever, always make sure to talk to your dermatologist or esthetician.
