How Often Should You Do Skin Needling (or Use a Derma Roller)?

You must be totally sick of my derma rollers and skin needling posts. I know I have been talking about these beauty devices loads, however, there is one question that I am constantly being asked by my readers and YouTube followers and it's the question that I always struggle to find the right answer for:

How often one should do skin or micro needling?

I will tell you what I did, but it doesn't mean that you should do the same.

When I was in the process of getting rid of my frown lines, I did skin needling a few times a week. It worked wonders for me, however, if you try to search for an answer online or elsewhere, you will see very different opinions, some people saying that it should not be done more frequently than once a month (I did a few times a week!!!). I don't have any medical qualifications, therefore, I should not be giving you an answer, especially the one that contradicts advice given elsewhere - just because skin needling with a certain frequency worked great on my skin, it may have different results on other people.

So, what should you do? I consulted a doctor, Dr David Bank, whose response was as follows:

“It depends on the individual's skin. Those with thicker, more sebaceous skin can use a derma roller once per week. However, those with more sensitive skin might only be able to use a derma roller once per month. For best results, you should always consult your dermatologist first to figure out what works best with your skin type.”

So, looks like you have to either use your own judgement or pay a visit to a dermatologist if you want to get the most out of your skin needling device.

I hope this gives you an idea of what determines the frequency of needling.

Below is my YouTube video where I talk about how frequent a derma roller or any other skin or micro needling device should be used. Nothing new there though - if you have read the post, then you don't have to watch the video. It's for those who prefer listening to reading.


Have you ever tried skin needling? Would you give it a go? Do you have any tricks to a more beautiful younger skin?
