Can micro-needling devices be cleaned or sterilized for repeated home use?

Answer: No.

Only home rollers with a needle length of 0.2 mm or less can be cleaned and reused. The FDA has established clear guidelines and standards with public safety in mind. Micro-needling devices that have needles longer than .03 mm begin to reach blood vessels thus making you subject to infection. All medical/surgical devices with needle lengths of 0.5 mm or greater have to be sterile prior to their use. This same standard applies to all medical/surgical disposable devices. Consider, if it is important for a device to be sterile prior to a procedure then it is equally important that it remain sterile if it is to be reused. An apparent double standard, don't you think? We do NOT recommend re-sterilizing a disposable product. Alcohol or similar solutions do NOT sterilize. Autoclaves use heat and will deform the plastic. The roller and its needles are therefore ruined. This increases the risk of infection, injury and pain during a procedure. For your safety, every Medical Dermaroller® device is guaranteed to be gamma sterilized and is designed for single use only. Please refer to Sterilization.
