Micro-needling for Smoother, Healthier Skin
If you’ve been struggling with skin issues like scars or uneven pigmentation, you may have heard of micro-needling. We get a lot of questions from clients about this unique procedure that uses your skin’s own healing properties to help resolve skincare issues. Today, we’ll talk about what it is and a few of the benefits you might get from micro-needling treatments.
What is micro-needling?
Microneedling uses a special tool with tiny needles that essentially roll across the skin to cause microscopic punctures. Your skin does the rest. It’s designed to heal itself, and that’s exactly what happens when faced with the tiny ‘wounds’ – these trigger the process of collagen production and skin cell renewal to speed up those natural processes.
When this happens, the surface area of your skin starts to rejuvenate itself, which can help even out your skin tone and uneven areas like acne scarring, giving you a smoother overall look.
What kind of skin problems can micro-needling help?
With that natural rejuvenation process, you can help address several troublesome skincare issues. Microneedling can:
- Help smooth out uneven areas with acne scars
- Even out skin pigmentation for a smoother, more even skin tone
- Make fine lines and wrinkles less visible
- Help repair some sun damage
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- and more!
Depending on the area that’s being treated, micro-needling sessions can last from about ten to 20 minutes. While you’ll start to see some improvement after the first couple of sessions, most people need about four to six treatments for optimal results.
Because micro-needling works as a natural healing process, your skin will take some time to heal. In that time, you might experience redness that will fade away as your skin revs up its cell renewal and collagen-building processes.
