What is microneedling and how does it work?
Microneedling is a type of skin treatment that uses tiny needles to create microscopic punctures on the surface of your skin. The purpose of these micro-injuries is to trigger new collagen production within the skin, which helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It also stimulates new cell growth and increases circulation.
The result is smoother, more youthful-looking skin with fewer imperfections. And because it doesn’t affect the deeper layers of the skin like some other dermatological procedures do, there’s no recovery time or downtime associated with microneedling.
So, what does microneedling feel like?
While a treatment with the word “needle” in the title may sound incredibly painful, it is not quite as painful as it sounds. You may feel small pricks as the microneedling tool is used to puncture tiny channels into your skin. Some clients notice some redness in their skin for the first 30-40 minutes after their treatment. This redness does not last more than an hour or two as long as you follow proper aftercare instructions.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, minimally invasive treatment that can help you achieve youthful, glowing skin. Results of the treatment include…
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightened skin
- Stimulated collagen production
- Minimized pores
- Reduction of hyperpigmentation or scarring
Because the treatment harnesses your body’s own healing ability to smooth wrinkles, fade scars and rejuvenate dull-looking skin it takes a little time for the results to truly reach their full potential – the most dramatic results will be noticeable 4-6 weeks after your treatment once your body has had time to produce more collagen and new skin cells.
As you can see above, microneedling can be used to treat many different skin issues, from general aging to acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. By combining it with a specialist serum that gets needled into the skin we can enhance its effects, giving you noticeably firmer, blemish-free and youthful skin. I personally us the CryoStem Signal Pro serum for my clients and have seen wonderful results.
