Visiting a new doctor for the first time can be scary. You don’t know what to expect. You often don’t know where the office is located. You don’t know if you’ll like the medical professional. Often, you don’t know what to ask or, if you do, you’re so nervous you forget to ask.
MDPen understands the difficulties in finding a professional microneedling practitioner. We’ve created a network of practitioners for you to search online. In addition, we’ve created a guide below for you use when vetting potential professional microneedling practitioners.
7 TIPS FOR CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL MICRONEEDLING
- Referrals. Do you have a friend or work colleague who has had microneedling procedures done and had a good experience? These are your best sources of information. It’s hard to rely on reviews when you don’t know the person. If someone you trust recommends a microneedling practitioner, odds are you can’t go wrong.
- Location. While cars are amazing inventions that get us from place to place with relative ease, they aren’t perfect and when inclement weather rolls in, you want someone close and convenient.
- Reputation. With the internet, there’s bound to be a wealth of information on your prospective microneedling practitioner, especially if they have years of experience. Jump online and read his or her website. Visit his or her’s Facebook page and any other social media outlet he or she may be active on. Many people leave reviews on social media now. Google is always your friend. Read Google reviews and reviews from other review sites such as Yelp or Top Rated Local®.
- Trust your gut. Never underestimate how important rapport is. Do you like the person? Is there a reasonable connection? After all, this is the person who is going to be putting thousands of micro holes in your face. Make sure you’re comfortable with that person above all else.
- Certifications. Investigate the educational background, certifications, and years of experience the prospective microneedling practitioner has. Most of the time, doctors have their certificates and diplomas hanging in their office, but if they don’t, don’t be afraid to ask. You want someone who knows what they’re doing.
- Staff. The people the professional microneedling practitioner surrounds himself or herself with can speak volumes about that person. Are they friendly? Do you feel welcomed when you arrive or call? Are they personable?
- Sleep on it. After your initial consultation and you’ve had a night or two to sleep on it, what are your impressions? Did you get all of your questions answered? Do you feel comfortable with the person? Did you like the staff and the overall feeling of the office setting? Is it a place you want to return to? If not, don’t be afraid to start your search again.
MDPen wants to emphasize the last tip; there’s nothing wrong with exploring all of your options. In fact, it’s in your best interest to get more than one viewpoint and opinion on any medical matter. Odds are you’re going to need more than one microneedling procedure to achieve the results you desire. You’re going to be establishing a somewhat long-term professional relationship with this person. You want your choice to be right.
