There is a huge difference in what an AT Home Dermaroller kit can achieve to what you should expect from a professional IN Clinic treatment.
Home care needling kits are 0.2mm to 0.5mm long - they facilitate the deeper absorption of cosmeceutical quality skincare serums to enhance the effects of the product and would therefore enhance the recovery and results of any clinic treatment.
As the needles don't cause pinprick bleeding - they aren't long enough - they can't stimulate the required inflammatory / healing response of the skin.
Skin needling kind of "tricks" the skin into thinking it's been injured or cut (from the bleeding) and this causes the skin to respond as though it has to heal a wound.
So just like a healing wound makes new skin (which includes collagen) the needled skin produces collagen all over the treated area which firms the skin and improves appearance of scars and wrinkles.
By the way the pinprick bleeding sounds worse than it is; it stops quickly and there is no facial scarring or marking other than looking a bit sunburned for the day.
Home care dermaroller skin needle kits are useful. I do recommend and retail them.
I use one myself a few nights per week with serums such as Skinmedica's TNS Recovery Complex ( which contains human fibroblast (collagen making ) cells and skin growth factors) and Skinceuticals or Medik8's B5 Hydrating Serum which contains a lot of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate the skin.
You could use with products like Skinceutical's Pigment Regulator if you wanted to hasten the improvement of hyperpigmentation - or with Image's The MAX Serum if you wanted a general anti aging , Botox - like wrinkle smoothing effect for example.
