If you’ve never heard of Microneedling, let us be the first to introduce you to this innovative skin care treatment that has been around for over a decade. Microneedling may sound intimidating (needles, yikes!) but the results will leave your skin looking smoother and more radiant much longer then your traditional facial.
What is Microneedling?
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury to rejuvenate the skin. When the micro needles puncture the skin, your body will start to naturally heal itself, kick-starting your collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin production is what keeps us looking young and radiant – both of which slow as we age. The procedure is minimally invasive and safe for all skin types.
What are the benefits?
Micro-Needling is one of the fastest and easiest ways to achieve a more youthful look. After the procedure your skin will look plump, slightly pink, and radiant. Here are some other benefits of Microneedling:
- Improves skin texture and quality
- Skin tightening
- Minimizes or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of scarring stretch marks, sun damage, and dark spots
- Reduce the appearance of acne scarring and pockmarks
- Shrinks pore size
- Increases absorption of topical products such as moisturizers and serums
Now you may see why so many people are trying out this skin care treatment. Many of us have so many of the same skin care concerns, we shouldn’t have to deal with them alone. Your esthetician is there for you and can recommend the right treatment for you (Microneedling might just be it). Results from one treatment will amaze you and if received as a series of treatments your skin will continuously improve and transform. If you’re still a skeptic, try it out for yourself!
