Microneedling is one of the latest, most popular trends in skin treatment. Unlike so many other fads, microneedling delivers solid results for a range of skin concerns. It also has powerful anti-aging effects.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling involves gliding a pen that uses extremely tiny needles to prick the skin. This is not painful, but it sends a signal to the body that there is an 'injury'. The body then sends a flood of new collagen and skin tissue to the area that has been treated, creating smoother, firmer skin.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling helps with a range of skin problems and age concerns. It can diminish scars (including acne scars and scars from wounds), sun spots, and other skin discoloration. Microneedling also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and large pores, delivering brighter, firmer skin.
What Microneedling Treatment Involves
After a consultation and talking you through all of the information you need as well as answering your question, a topical anaesthetic to numb any discomfort will be applied. Beginning the treatment, a small, pen-like tool will smoothly and evenly glide over your skin. This device makes minute pin-pricks under your skin - so small that you probably will not notice them after your treatment. Thereafter a serum of choice ( Inta Rejuvenate serum, Purifying serum, Soothing serum or Brightening and boosting serum) will be lightly massaged into your skin.
What to Expect After Microneedling
Because microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment, there is little to no downtime. After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. You should see visible results within 14 days. In order to maintain and build upon the positive results of your treatment, repeat treatments are strongly suggested. NOTE: As microneedling will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, a strong SPF must be applied to skin every day to maintain your results. SPF should be reapplied every two hours or after sweating/swimming.
