Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure for women and men looking to enhance their beauty through their body’s natural response to puncturing the skin. During a microneedling procedure (formally known as collagen induction therapy), sterilized needles create microscopic wounds in your skin. This triggers your body’s natural healing process which treats your skin through production of collagen and elastin, which promotes healthy skin and keeps it soft and youthful-looking.
The Vaney Microneedle Pen is an automated microneedling device designed for durability, safety, and more effective treatment. With a focus on patient results, the practitioner has the ability to adjust to a precise needle depth and use three different types of disposable cartridges all with the same device. The up and down oscillating action of the Vaney Microneedle Pen cartridges creates micro-injuries to the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This treatment starts the normal physiological process where new collagen is produced and the skin becomes rejuvenated and refreshed.

But what exactly is the best choice for a microneedling pen today? It all depends on the results you’re trying to achieve and what your preferences are. That’s why it’s important to know all the microneedling options you have on the market and take in all the factors to decide which best suits your situation.
In-Office Microneedling vs. At-Home Microneedling
In the past, microneedling was performed by dermatologists, professional aestheticians, nurses, and other medical practitioners. Today, microneedling products are available in beauty stores or online for everyday people to use at home. But which one is the better option?
Through in-office microneedling, you’ll have the advantage of having professional microneedling done to your skin. If you haven’t had microneedling done before, we recommend getting your first time done by a professional. This can help you experience the process and get used to the puncturing feeling. Once you’ve gotten used to the feeling of microneedling, you can start considering doing it at home.
At-home microneedling, on the other hand, means buying your own microneedling tool (either a microneedling pen or a derma roller) and then doing the procedure on yourself in the comfort of your own home. While it’s not recommended for procedures that require deeper punctures from longer needles, it’s the more convenient and practical solution for those who need microneedling more frequently for a less invasive procedure.
Microneedling Pen vs. Derma Roller
For those interested in at-home microneedling, you have two microneedling devices to choose from: microneedling pens or derma pens similar to the ones used by most aesthetic clinics, and microneedling rollers more commonly known as derma rollers.
Microneedling pens are electric or battery-powered units that hold cartridges of stainless steel needles available in different sizes. Each unit can also adjust the length of the needle heads that punctures the skin. When powered, these pens spring the cartridge back and forth to puncture the skin. Users have to position the pen around certain areas of their face, and can toggle a button or adjustable dial to adjust the speed level of how fast the adjustable needles spring. After the microneedling session, the unit will have to be sterilized before storage to remove the remaining skin tissues. Reusable cartridges should be sterilized and stored while disposable cartridges can be thrown away.
Derma rollers, on the other hand, are manually operated and do not require electricity or batteries. It is a cylinder with needles on its surface connected to a rolling handle that is used to repeatedly roll over the skin. After microneedling, the entire roller will have to be sterilized before storing it away.
Why Microneedling Pens Are Better Than Derma Rollers
While plenty of people are using derma rollers as an affordable basic option, we recommend going for microneedling pens as it offers more benefits to at-home users. Despite its price, even beginners may find that microneedling pens have much more to offer those looking to benefit from the effects of microneedling sessions.
Microneedling pens offer versatility. Derma rollers come with one cylindrical roller with one needle length. This makes it impossible to shorten or lengthen the needle length for other skin concerns that require deeper needle penetration. Microneedling pens, on the other hand, can adjust in cartridge size between nano, 12, and 36-pin needles as well as the length of the pins that puncture the skin. Beginners can start on smaller pins with the shortest needle length for superficial skin problems and then gradually make their way up to bigger cartridges with longer needle lengths – all with one tool.
Mirconeedling pens puncture the skin straight down. When used correctly, a microneedling pen should be perpendicular to the skin it punctures. These punctures go straight down the outer layer into the middle and inner layer of the skin, reducing the pain (especially for those with sensitive skin) and minimizing potential scarring while also making the absorption of skincare products more efficient when applied to the area. Rollers, on the other hand, may appear straight on the cylinder. But when rolled, it punctures the skin surface at an angle, drags the skin forward, and leaves at another angle. Depending on your skin type and skin condition, this can create larger wounds susceptible to skin trauma, which can lead to the appearance of scars.
Microneedling pens have thinner, sharper needles. Microneedling pens come with thin, sharp stainless steel needles (or titanium, for higher-end units with multiple-use cartridges). This means less skin trauma when the needles puncture your skin. In comparison, rollers have shorter and duller needles.
Microneedling pens are a good beauty tool to invest in for naturally healthier skin. After trying out a few microneedling sessions at your local aesthetic practice or clinic for more major concerns like acne scars and deep wrinkles, see if you’d like to continue the practice in the comfort of your own home to help exfoliate dead skin cells for softer skin and provide better penetration for your skin care products.

Innovative and effective, Vaney Microneedle Pen activates your body’s natural cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems. Vaney MicroNeedling is used for skin revitalization and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
How Does Vaney Microneedle Pen Improve The Skin’s Appearance?
Vaney Microneedle Pen rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area. These micro channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Micro channels also create micro injuries which causes the body to send blood and growth factors to the area resulting in glowing, healthy skin.
