How often can I do micro-needling?
There are many advantages to using 0.5 mm needles. They work well, especially when combined with a good growth-factor serum. You can do frequent treatments as there is little to no down time, but I fell once per week is sufficient.
However, I do not like rollers as they create a more erratic pattern of "tears" through the skin rather than the clean, more evenly distributed punctures seen with the motorized micro-needling machines. In my office, we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated human growth factor serums made from human stem cells. Our patients also use growth factor serum at home after the office treatment.
