Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that's taking the beauty world by storm… and for good reason – this treatment has the ability to give you smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Here's how Microneedling works:
Tiny needles are used to create small punctures in the skin. This may sound painful, but most people report only mild discomfort during the treatment. These punctures stimulate the body's natural healing processes, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin. And what do collagen and elastin do? They give skin its strength and elasticity, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Serums like Beauty Boosters and Plasma can be added to your microneedling treatment to enhance your results.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
The benefits of microneedling don't stop there. It can also help improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, reduce the appearance of scars (including acne scars), and enhance the absorption of skincare products. Microneedling has been found to improve uneven skin pigmentation and reduce pore size, helping to create a smoother complexion. Plus, it's suitable for all skin types and tones.
Why is collagen so important?
As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, leading to a loss of elasticity and the development of wrinkles and fine lines. But microneedling can help reverse this process by encouraging the production of new collagen, giving you a more youthful, radiant appearance.
In short, microneedling is a safe and effective treatment that can improve the appearance and health of your skin. If you're interested in giving it a try, be sure to consult with a qualified healthcare professional. Trust us, your skin will thank you.
Is there anyone who should not get microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment that can be performed on most people. However, there are some individuals who should not undergo microneedling, including:
Individuals with active acne: Microneedling may not be suitable for individuals with active acne as it could potentially spread the infection. It is recommended to wait until the acne has cleared before undergoing treatment.
Individuals with raised or keloid scars: Microneedling may not be suitable for individuals with raised or keloid scars as it could potentially worsen the appearance of these scars.
Individuals with open wounds: Microneedling should not be performed on individuals with open wounds or cuts on the treatment area.
It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing microneedling to determine if the treatment is suitable for you.
How often should I get microneedling treatments?
In terms of how often you should get microneedling, it is typically recommended to start with a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After this initial series, maintenance treatments may be recommended every 3-4 months to maintain the results. However, the frequency of treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and goals. It is important to discuss a treatment plan with your healthcare professional to determine the best frequency for you.
