The world of beauty and skincare is constantly changing, there are newly available skincare techniques at spas and clinics every single day. Getting to understand and know all the new techniques and how it can benefit your skin can be overwhelming. Today, we’ll be discussing all things about micro-needling and why it can be the perfect treatment for you to get now.
You’ve seen them all over your social media feeds and often referred to as derma-rolling. The technique itself has been available for years but has now been garnering lots of attention. What does it do to your skin? Micro-needling treatment is a procedure where it punctures the surface layer of the skin using a set of tiny needles. Don’t fret, these fine needles are not placed into your skin directly. This might sound painful, but in fact, most of our clients get to experience very little pain.
So, what is the social media world buzzing about micro-needling? Here are some of the benefits:
- Anti-Aging – It can help with the visible signs of aging including fine lines, and wrinkles. Micro-needling does wonders and helps slow down the appearance of aging.
- Scars & Stretch Marks -Micro-needling can also help reduce the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.
- Skin Tone & Pores – One of our favorite benefits of micro-needling is the overall improvement of tone and texture of your skin while reducing the visible appearance of your pores.
Using an at-home micro-needling tool can pose a number of different risks, the worst of which is further damaging the skin by creating lesions that may then become infected. In addition, these at-home devices are typically hard to keep clean and maintain as the needles become dull after just a few uses making the tool ineffective and increasing the skin’s risk of injury or infection.
For some, derma-rollers are done available and done at home. But we recommend that you get to visit a professional who is trained to perform the procedure with the right amount of knowledge with micro-needling. As using-at-home micro-needling tools can pose a serious risk, one might damage the skin than doing benefits from it.
With micro-needling, you can expect a very little downtime after your procedure, for some, they can experience redness or dry skin for only a few days. As similar to the other facial treatments, your skin will also become more sensitive to the sun or sun damage, so make sure to protect your skin with a good SPF protection.
Do we think that micro-needling work? Yes, we do! It can provide incredible results to those who book their sessions regularly with an aesthetician. For one’s benefit, do make sure to discuss your micro-needling options with your therapist so she can walk you through the treatment benefits that your skin may experience.
