Hey guys welcome back to my channel so today I’m coming at you with a video and demonstration about micro needle needling so what I do Is a pen version it’s a professional version of micro needling. I don’t use the derma roller if you do Purchase a derma roller for at-home use Please just make sure you get it from a reputable source because some of these derma rollers are actually metal Barbs rather than needles and you can imagine rolling metal barbs over your skin and the damage that they can do Compared to actual tiny fine needles also You always want to really inspect a roller if you order one? that all of the needles are facing out one needle going a Direction it shouldn’t be going can damage the heck out of your skin so I use a pen and I typically use it between 0.5 millimeters and 1.5. I don’t often go over 1.5. I don’t find a need to that would be for carring or Newer stretch marks that still had some pink that kind of stuff, but typically micro needling is done for anti-aging for collagen induction therapy and The way this works you guys if you don’t know our Skin is composed of layers as I’m sure you all know. We’ve got our epidermis Which is composed on our face of four layers, okay? You get past those four layers, and you get to your dermis and at your dermis You’ve got two layers that comprise the dermis you’ve got your papillary layer. That’s just below the epidermis Just love this our outer skin, and then you’ve got your reticular layer Reticular dermis that is the second layer down in your dermis that that comprises your dermis your papillary and your reticular When you are trying to perform collagen induction therapy? You’re trying to to make microscopic holes so injuries if you will Just into that upper Reticular layer so if you can imagine your in like a bunch of layers of paper, and you’ve got your layers of your epidermis Then you’ve got a thin layer of your papillary And then you’ve got a nice stack a nice stack of papers that are your reticular dermis Just under all that other stuff. I want my needles to get into that upper Reticular layer and the reason why I want it in that upper reticular dermis is because that is where we have collagen fibers, and they are laying parallel to our skin surface, so if you can get in there and Pretend to damage them your skin your body is going to be like Oh Damage we send in more Collagen and that is how we are in sight itself take the body to produce more collagen to send it to save the day Okay so when you use a micro needling pen it oscillates really really quickly with very fine needles to a Chosen depth so for me. I typically choosing 0.5 because at 0.5 millimeters I Am getting to the upper reticular dermis I’m getting just where I need to be even if you are wanting to micro needle where you’re planning to derma roll and it’s just for anti-aging for for collagen production 0.5. Is great now if you’re using a point two-five ruler That’s fine too, but I want you to know that that’s not going to go past that epidermal layer So what you’re really getting there is product penetration. That’s a great thing too, but you’re likely not getting any collagen induction so you might be able to put on some really great skincare and Drive it in a little bit deeper or nothing active you shouldn’t use anything active But that’s all you’re getting so you should really know that know if you are using it point 5 roller Or if you are getting micro needles you would find out From your skin therapist that they’re not going to microneedle you any more often than every four weeks with 0.5. Typically you don’t want to needle with 0.5 or greater anymore and then four weeks lots And lots of therapists choose four to six weeks just to ensure that they’re not Interrupting the collagen cycle so I caution you if you are rolling with anything greater than 0.25 that You don’t do it once a week or even every other week you should be doing it every four weeks I don’t want to show you the pen that I use I don’t I give you a quick demo I won’t make you watch me kneel on my whole face and Like other demos where I’m doing my own face. I am not wearing gloves because its own face So this is my opinion And this is a Korean made German motor thought to be some of the best pens on the market There are lots of great great pens on the market and I wouldn’t worry so much about it being called the dermapen or the Vista pen or the skin pen or anything like that it’s more about the practitioners skill and education and Their knowledge of how to use it where to use it What depth that kind of thing also what’s super important? Is that it’s always used with an absolutely sterile Needle, I always show people that it’s still sealed in the package not that anybody would ever think I’d reuse needles but yeah, that’s just super important this will get used on my skin today, and it’ll get put in a sharps container and Disposed of so that’s super super important sanitation is Huge with this you guys because obviously you’re sticking needles in your face, so I’m going to cleanse my face And I am actually going to swab my entire face with alcohol again Because it’s so important that there’s nothing on my face as far as makeup sunscreen moisturizer none of that stuff But what I’m getting actually needle into my face today is higher. Lemak acid my Medium weight pure hyaluronic acid I happen to love it Okay, Here. I am once again with my fabulous hairdo and you know the whole nine completely clean skin, and I’ve taken an alcohol wipe and Finished that off here. I have my higher logic acid So the way that I microneedle is I have a pretty planned out gonna start here And I can dial up the Millimeters that I want here, so that’s pretty awesome. Now. I’m going to start over here, and I’m gonna do about a square inch and I go a Dereham Across and then diagonal through that square, and then I move on This ensures that I get everywhere I’m gonna get pink I might get some pinpoint bleeding And I’m gonna have to keep applying my harmonic acid And because I’m using a che, I’m Choosing to also use water because I want to drive the water and the higher line of gas it into my skin Now you can see you guys I’m surviving this Does it hurt it doesn’t feel like a party? But it’s totally Tolerable I have not used any NUMMI When I get close to the eyes I Stamp a little I don’t grab Depending on your practitioner some like to get a lot of bleeding I am NOT of that philosophy, but that’s a personal choice of the practitioner I feel like some nights flushing maybe a tiny bit of pimple ain’t bleeding and That’s fine. That’s good to go good results will happen and I didn’t have to you know hamburger up somebody’s face Today I’m going to be like I’m sunburned Tomorrow, I will wake up with the most amazingly glowy Fabulous skin it is the perfect date night procedure if you do it the day before So because I’m inducing all of this collagen you guys It’s shocking how within about a week to ten days you can start to see something happening and by four weeks you really can start to see and You know your collagen continues to be produced for up to six months from the micro needling So you’re going to continue to see? Benefits for up to six months if you do a series of three or more about a month apart It is incredible the anti-aging benefit something else that I’ve seen a lot is people talking about all of this stuff that they’re putting on after big needle or they roll I Just caution you to be super careful Because anything that you use, that’s occlusive so heavy, or you know pick You’ve got all these micro channels that do heal quickly they heal fast within 24 hours for sure. They’re all healed probably significantly faster than that you guys but I Don’t like to put anything on my skin if I did a client and the Sun was shining bright I asked him to wear a hat. I don’t want to put sunscreen on them nothing I have just needled in some kind of a treatment. I’ve needled in high or a lot of Gossage, FL cytokines Something like that. I just want to let their skin breathe not throwing on layers of moisturizer or anything like that you want to let that skin just heal and breathe and Be left alone Very important you don’t want to overdo the products So good for your lips you guys a lot of us get the knees or level that we all fold I’ll go over them a little bit more. I might even punch them Okay, now. I’m gonna do my work head. I’m definitely going to turn it down 2.5. I had it 0.64 head is probably the most tender. Okay guys so as you can see I am pink I hope you can see that before you go to bed. You don’t need to wash it nothing Just let it mean when it breathes let it heal let it do the thing that it’s supposed to do from the inside That’s what you want to do now tomorrow. It is so important that you use sunscreen okay, so I hope that this was helpful you guys I and I hope that anybody who does derma roll more often or That has a completely different opinion than I do please don’t be offended This is just what I learned and I’m hoping to put that information out there for others to learn as well micro needling is Seriously one of my absolute favorite procedures because the results are undeniable Undeniable you know I probably in about a month I’m going to start noticing a thickening of my dermis you can kind of tell your skin has a Different appearance to it. That’s the collagen it’s such a fabulous treatment especially when it’s done in a series Anyway, I hope that if you’re new that you’ll subscribe and yeah, I will talk to you guys again very soon Who says


  1. Can you give us the info on the brand of derma pen that you use, and also where to find pure hylauronic acid that isn’t watered down? Thank you! Great video!

  2. what is your opinion on Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)? How much more affective is it then just micro needling?

  3. This is a wonderful video . Do you still use this machine? I’ve had professional SkinPen treatments and love the results . I have a Microneedling machine already, but it’s up and down motion is too choppy to use under eyes without bruising . The SkinPen didn’t bruise at all . How would you compare the Dr Pen to the professional pens used by doctors ?

  4. Great tutorial, thank you so much, I’m considering buying an A6 Dr.pen and I have few more questions- what about acne scars ? I’m 37 so I am losing tightness and elasticity of my skin but my cheeks are scarred ( medium deep I’d say)shall I use longer needles than 0.5 for cheeks arrea ? If yes , is 4 weeks treatment rhythm still ok? The other question is when would you use long needles -2.5 ?and finally what does the needle quantity mean ? It’s possible to buy 9/12/ 36/42 needles , which amount is best ? Thank you for your time

  5. Hi Penn ! I just came across your channel because I want to start dermaroller , but there are waaay too much information.
    Do you have any recommandation for a DR on amazon? A 0.3 and 0.5 may be?
    I saw people on YT dermarolling everyday with a 0.3. Is it safe ?
    I also watch a video on a docteur, founder of Environ in South Africa and one of the precursor of microneedling, he said that he dermarolls everyday. He looks incredibly young and he is 70 yo
    So now I’m confused I don’t know what to do 🙂
    Thanks for your help
    Enjoy the day !

  6. Hi hun! Thank you for such a great video for newbies like me . I just ordered my dermapen and can't wait to start using it I just wonder if I can use my vitamin C suspension 30% in silicone from The ordinary after treatment that I use every night before go to bed .

  7. thanks, Penn! I'm a new subscriber and coincidentally just ordered a skin pen! This was greatly helpful….can't wait to get started.

  8. Can you dermaroll if you use tretinoin or differin . Do you have to wait? And is differin a good retinoid to use if you can't get tretinoin?

  9. I have extremely sensitive skin and can only use Anteage Microneedling Serum when I use my Dr Pen . The product dries quickly, causing the pen to stick instead of glide, plus it's too expensive to keep globbing on during each session. Is it still effective to just lift and move the pen manually instead of gliding it across the skin ? I got a rash from using Timeless Hyaluronic Acid serum with my pen . It has the same ingredients as the serum you use . Since I can't use many products for glide , I figured I could use the pen as a manual stamp to avoid microtearing or scratches. Make sense ?

  10. Will either HA that you posted links for work? I noticed you said "as a slip" on the second one. Does that mean we need both, one to use while slipping the wand over the skin and another for bedtime?

  11. Thank you for your professional insights. What type of alcohol did you use on your face? How long have you been microneedling already to get these results? Would you do a follow up with before and after pics? Or the image of how your skin looks a day later? Furthermore, do you use make-up on the skin the day after treatment? Thank you so much!

  12. I love your videos! I am a registered nurse who loves the science behind skincare products and treatments. Excellent explanation of the skin layers, and how micro-needling triggers collagen induction. I have a question: if 0.5 works for collagen stimulation why go up to 1.0 or higher? Will u have a stronger response with 1.0? Would love to hear your feedback!!!! ❤️

  13. At 10:02 you mention that you can use stem cell cytokine serum after a needling. What does that do, how effective is it, and where do you get it? Also, do you recommend massive amounts of Type 1 hydrolyzed collagen powder taken orally (Type 1 being the type of collagen found in the skin)? Thanks for the video. You are a beautiful woman.

  14. Hey Penny, loving your videos thank you!! How do you know which number of needles you need to use? I see the Dr. Pen comes with 36, 12 or nano needles. Also is there a huge difference between the different Dr. Pen pens? Prices range $149, $99 or $69?

  15. Hi Penn
    I love your demo you are so informative. Where can I purchase a pen that you are using in this demo? There are so many on the Internet. I just don’t want to waste my money on another product that claims to work?

  16. Hi Penn, thank you so much for making this video, I refered back to it numerous times before doing my own. I am a newly licensed Esthiticiannfor the past year but have been a Makeup artist and apart of the skin care and beauty industry for the past 20 years. I love going to the spa but as you know it can be costly so I dont mind doing things myself. Long story short I asksed my collegue (another esthetician) to do my microneedling. Ive noticed that my skin is peeling like it does after getting a mild chemical peel. Is this normal? Thank you for any feedback.

  17. Hi Penn. I just purchased my dr. derma pen. It came with a variety of pin cartridges heads ranging from a 12 needle head to 42 needle head. How do I know which head to use?

  18. Hi Penn
    Just need to know the pen you are using, is it from the iBeauty pen as it looks the same. I would like to purchase a good pen so please let me know. Great video by the way very informative 😀

  19. So what causes scar tissue to form under the dermis? I mean where is the proof that your skin reacts by producing more collagen instead of scar tissue. Which would be just awful!

  20. how long and often do you do it after the initial 6 monthly sessions? also did you say .5 to reach the collegen level? thanks for such a great demo im really encouraged to try it now 🙂

  21. Hello Penn! I watched both of your videos and just wanted some clarification on the process. 1) clean & wash off makeup 2) use alcohol wipes 3) apply numbing cream 4) use HA 5) microneedle. 6) use more HA. Is this correct??? I am wanting to make the purchases today:-). I saw the links to all the products except for HA. Do you have a specific rec for the HA???

  22. Hugely helpful video! I have been getting skin pens from my med spa for a few years now and I’m ready to try it at home.
    You gave me so much good info on proper technique!! Thank you.
    What serums do you use please?


  24. Have decided to stop dermarolling after reading this

  25. Hi is it normal to have a swollen face and droopy cheeks? It was ok in the morning but right after needling my face gets really swollen. Omg I do love the results though. I'm on my second treatment.

  26. If using less than .1 when is the earliest I could use my tretinoin and Clindamycin. Thank you in advance.

  27. How do I choose a well qualified Certified Advanced Aesthetician? What are the questions I want to ask on the phone? Loving your YouTubes!

  28. Is it okay to use the pen over fillers? I got filler in my temples last week, so was just curious about that. Thank you!

  29. I am watching u on my TV and phone. I stopped micro needling and started using the dermawand also concord stimulation. I was faithful to the regiment but I only saw very short lived. maybe it's because I'm 54 or maybe because my problem area are neck and mouth..
    I'm ready to dive in to a new regiment care for older skin. could u please do a video on the issue..
    I will promise to invite all my girlfriend 's to see the video..

  30. Hi I am a licensed professional and want to add collagen induction therapy, micro needling, to my service menu. Can you please advise me on what brand pin you were using and does it matter I was looking at the MD Pen However it cost $3000 so I don’t know if it matters could you please advise me thank you

  31. Very good video tutorial . Where can i buy the micro needling pen . I would like the same on me that you use .. thank you in advance …

  32. The last 20 videos i watched all sound the same. "Hi guys." Ugh…. Really? GUYS? No one can be an individual?

  33. Hi Penn. Great video. I've ordered my pen. I've been getting microneedling, but my aesthetician spends about 5 minutes on my face and uses a circular motion, I've not noticed any great results. Research tells me most treatment for the face are approximately 20-30 minutes and sometimes up to an hour. I've decided to just do it myself, but wondering how many times to go over an area. I've read different opinions. My focus is on my lower face for tightening and fine wrinkles. I absolutely love your videos and you are so pretty!

  34. After a microneedling .5mm treatment, when can you start micro rolling with a .25 or .3mm for deeper penetration of products??

  35. Hi, can I know if you can advise on the needles used for this pen? I see that the needles used have multiple pins i.e. 12-pin needles, 36-pin needles, nano needles, etc. How are they significant in the treatments. Thanks

  36. Penn, is there anything other than Clearista for peeling afterward? For me to get it in Canada, it’s $100 for a single bottle. I can’t afford that.

  37. You have gorgeous skin babe. I’m so much into this stuff and have been doing it since I was 20… can you recommend a good pen please. I have an RF home laser and do my own peels etc but am researching pens… would be grateful… I just subscribed ❤️ from Australia

  38. Hi!
    Nice video! I dermaroll with a .5 once a month, in your opinion is it ok to use prescription retin a in between dermarolling? Thanks!

  39. Hi…u don't do it under ur eyes.? If so, how closed to the eye u can microneedling u can do.? Tks

  40. Hi! Thank you so much for all the help and guidance! I just nano’ed for the first time! It was amazing! The question that I have is. Can I do this deeper microneedling with melasma. It is melasma that has nothing to do with the sun, but rather hormone related. I watched a dermatologist talk on this subject, and he was adamant about no going too deep, due to making it worse. Thank you so much 😍😍. So much valuable information and nano needling helped my melasma pigmentation so much! Much Love!❤️❤️

  41. hello penny i derma roll like you said every 4 weeks i would like to buy a derma pen have you got a brand to prefer i am esthetician too but i never used a derma pen so i hope it is esay to use kisses from France

  42. I am reading Dr. Setterfields book right now, he recommend high molecular weight of HA.  What stem cell did you mention?  Thanks for your video, I want to do it on my face too

  43. Your skin is the very best advert for both your business and microneedling, it's glowing and youthful! Thank you so much for your amazingly informative videos xx
