Forget about going under the knife, the new thing to do is go under the needle! But not in the old fashion way!
Micro-needling is one of the best ways to achieve glowing flawless skin. I’m sure you’ve seen the likes of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie sporting a noticeably ‘bloody’ face post facial, and for one very good reason! This revolutionary treatment can not only help turn back the clock by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also treat acne scarring and smooth out skin tone and texture. If you have always been intrigued by the thought of skin needling read on to find out the low down on everything Micro Needling!
How does Micro Needling work?
Micro needling works by stimulating your natural collagen production, and we all know that collagen is essential if you want youthful, fresh looking skin. The treatment begins with a Hydraulic Acid Solution being placed on the skin, the micro needle then works by vertically piercing the skin with multiple little injections. These fine needles produce tiny ‘micro tears’ in the skin stimulating collagen and elastin production, which helps to regenerate and replace old damage skin cells with new healthy ones! Out with the old (skin), in with the new (skin)!
By boosting collagen and helping to thicken the skin micro needling can treat a multitude of skin conditions. It can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat scarring by breaking down old scar tissue and replacing it with new skin cells, and even works to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. But the benefits don’t just stop there, it can also help to combat:
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
Although this sounds like an invasive treatment it’s a simple procedure that requires little down time and you’ll notice the results almost immediately (within 6-8 days). To top it off your collagen production accumulates and continues over the next six months, so you continue to see results
While results can be seen after one treatment a course of three is generally recommended to have optimal results!
Micro Needling works perfectly as a combination with treatments that work to improve the superficial layers such as Microdermabrasion’s and Chemical Peels. This is the perfect way to improve your skin both on superficial level and a dermal level.
