It’s important to go the extra mile to look your best, especially during the summer. You’ll get the most exposure during this time of year and most likely spend a lot of your time out and about in large crowds. Naturally, you’re going to want to look your best, and keeping your skin in good condition is important. If you’ve never considered a microneedling treatment, you should read this article and find out what this unique process can do for you.
What Is Microneedling?
Looking up photos about microneedling might actually scare you away. The process looks painful, and photos usually depict the tiny needles that puncture the face. You’ll also notice the blood drawn during the process, but we promise there’s no need for alarm.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that’s used on the face to eliminate scars and other blemishes. The process involves puncturing the face with multiple tiny needles, which increases collagen production in the face.
Think of it as having acupuncture done on your face. In all reality, that’s exactly what it is.
What Does Microneedling Help With?
Microneedling helps with a variety of different skin issues. The following list is just a fraction of the conditions microneedling can treat:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Leathery skin
- Sunburn scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin textures and tones
There are many more conditions that microneedling can help with, and the process has been known to be incredibly effective. So what does the process consist of?
What to Expect
During a microneedling session, you’ll lay back and have your face numbed before the treatment begins. This eliminates any potential pain from the insertion of the needles.
Over the course of 20 minutes, multiple pin-sized needles are inserted in and around the problem areas of the face and left for a brief period. After they’re removed, you’re all done. It’s a very simple process that takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
The overall goal of microneedling is to increase the production of collagen in the face. Increases in collagen lead to firmer skin, which enhances the texture, tone, and smoothness of the face.
In the end, you’re left with a smoother, more enriched facial tone that can improve your look.
Microneedling isn’t as bad as it looks, and the rewards are much greater than the risk. If you have scars or other intense skin blemishes, you should absolutely consider giving this treatment a shot – no pun intended. Contact me today to learn more about scheduling your microneedling procedure.
