Are you looking for a treatment to help you achieve a firmer, smoother complexion? Micro needling is the latest beauty technology that can help make your skin look and feel more youthful without the need for surgery
The rejuvenating power of micro needling is becoming popular among both men and women thanks to its ability to help reduce the appearance of a wide variety of skin concerns. It can make a noticeable difference to fine line & wrinkles, loose skin due to lose of elasticity, enlarged pores, pigmentation, acne scarring, stretch marks, reduce symptoms of rosacea & more.
If you’ve suffered from acne scarring, rosacea or simply want to reduce wrinkles so you look younger and feel more confident, micro needling could be the right option for you.
How does micro needling work?
The principle behind this revolutionary treatment is to encourage natural tissue regeneration by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin (the proteins which give our skin elasticity and firmness). This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as other blemishes. The resulting effect gives your skin a real glow.
Micro needling is done using a ‘dermal pen’ containing tiny needles. As it is gently moved over your face, the needles cause micro-trauma to the top layer of skin, creating the natural healing and repairing response. This is what helps to reduce those imperfections as the new layer of tissue is formed.
The use of needles may sound painful but micro needling is a quick and comfortable treatment. The vibration of the dermapen works like a natural anaesthetic, naturally numbing the nerve endings so there is little to no discomfort.
What can I expect from a micro needling treatment?
Each session is around 20 minutes long so you can easily squeeze it into your lunch break. You may experience some warmth and redness straight after each treatment but this is temporary and short-lived. Any slight after-effects are gone within 24 to 48 hours.
Recovery time from micro needling is generally shorter than most other facial treatment options. It’s a good idea to avoid the sun and not use any make up for a couple of days while your skin is still sensitive.
How long does it take to see results?
You’ll start to feel some results after each micro needling treatment as your skin begins to respond, giving you a fresher glow. It will take around six months to see the full effect, based on having the recommended monthly sessions. Your therapist will work together with you to agree the best approach according to your particular needs.
Another great side benefit of micro needling is that any topical products you use afterwards will penetrate more deeply. This means you’ll be getting more bang for your buck out of your daily moisturisers and serums.
Why choose micro needling?
Compared to some other treatments such as dermal fillers, lasering and chemical peels, micro needling is minimally invasive and cost-effective. The short recovery time is also appealing.
Beauty salon clients now often choose micro needling over more traditional approaches. Those with darker complexions or looking for a pigmentation treatment can also find it to be more effective than IPL, for example.
Micro needling has been around for more than ten years and studies have shown it to be an effective way to achieve firmer, toned skin.
