Updated Video on What to Expect During and after & taking you with me day-by-day for almost 2 weeks
Background Information on my Experiences
I started really caring about my skin in 2013. I began doing face peels at home, and discovered a wealth of information and do-it-yourself skincare practices, that have since evolved. I also began microneedling with an affordable microneedling roller in 2014, and did so sporadically at that time but it was not invasive, and was only a light treatment. At that time, I was keeping a close eye on progress and taking before and after photos. Then, I focused more on doing face peels, and less on doing microneedling. If you’re wondering why I would stop doing something that would help with skincare, it was more because I was having health issues that were unrelated, and skincare was not a priority or concern. So, it’s basically been about four years since I’ve done proper treatments.
The microneedling rollers are effective, but I wanted to see how effective microneedling with a pen tool could be. So, that’s why I’m documenting it here, for all to see. If you are using a microneedling roller, I believe it can still be very beneficial. I just wanted to take things to a new level. So, I did a lot of research on which microneedling pen to purchase, and I love the one I am using.

My Face After Microneedling
Final Thoughts on my FIRST Treatment
It takes time to see results from a treatment like this. So, I am optimistic. At the time of writing this, it’s only been a few days since the treatment. My skin currently is dry and not looking great. It almost looks a bit worse, but it is normal as it’s going through a healing process, and is currently in a dry stage. Though my face was insanely red, it went down in a few hours. My skin continued to look blotchy, and still does a little bit on day 3. I look forward to updating you guys with how things are going, progress and the entire process.
