* Microneedling doesn’t have to cost a fortune
* Compact, at-home devices to safely exfoliate with needles
* Affordable alternatives to try out skin care’s latest trend
At-home microneedling is a game changer in the skin care industry. It’s an affordable way to get dermatologist-level results without having to set foot in a doctor’s office. One of the gold standards on the market is the GloPro Microneedling Tool by Beauty Bioscience.
Priced at over $150, this derma roller might be the gold standard, but there are plenty of awesome alternatives on the market that will save you money. We’ve rounded up 5 alternatives to the GloPro (manual and electric) that offer the same benefits as the original: stimulating blood circulation, encouraging the production of collagen, softening and refining your skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and ultimately prepping your skin for better absorption of serums and creams.
1. Alo Verra Titanium Micro-Needles
The Alo Verra Derma Roller is a highly rated, affordably priced option that performs micro-derma therapy in the comfort of your home. The micro-needle roller is made with a comfortable, ergonomic handle that is curved for a smooth yet durable grip for better control.
2. Stacked Skincare Micro-Roller
Stacked Skincare’s Collagen Boosting Micro-Roller features safe, stainless-steel needles that work to gently micro-exfoliate and stimulate your skin’s natural repair process for smoother, firmer-looking skin. This tool softens skin by removing dull, dead cells from the top layer of skin and prepping it for any post-serum routine. Suggested use is to gently roll the micro-roller over your skin 3-5 times per week, horizontally and diagonally.
3. Nurse Jamie Beauty Stamp
Nurse Jamie’s popular Beauty Stamp is a unique iteration of the micro-exfoliation tool and utilizes a gentle press and lift action to promote increased effectiveness of your skin care products. To use, gently “stamp” the entire face 2-3 times, rotating the direction of the stamp each time. With regular use, you will see firmer, smoother and more youthful looking skin.
4. DermaWand Kit
The DermaWand Kit offers a compact and condensed version of the same technology found in large, commercial machines used by professional skin care specialists during in-office microneedling sessions. The Wand stimulates and rejuvenates the skin by sending out a gentle stream of low-level micro-current impulses to help improve circulation while bringing oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin’s surface. The gentle micro-current also has a thermal effect on the skin’s surface helping to tone and tighten and smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
