lets Talk about Micro-needling …
What is it ?
Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure which involves your skin getting punctured multiple times with tiny sterile needles. Its also known as collagen induction therapy, because it encourages your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.
Why is it so popular ?
Micro-needling can treat a range of skin issues, so people are getting it done for many different reasons. Such as but not limited too – anti-aging, acne scars and more radiant looking skin. The results are long term and very effective, even celebrities like Kim K. have gone for micro-needling.
Does it hurt ?
There is a very mild discomfort, numbing cream is applied and depending on the person you may not even feel a thing. You can also get a stronger numbing cream prescribed by your doctor if you wanted to ensure no feeling at all.
Are there side affects ?
Of course, the biggest one is the risk of a breakout after. Which is why we would clear up your acne before even booking a micro-needling session, and I also take extra preciousness with clients who are prone to breakouts. After you’ve had it done it will actually help improve your skin health, minimizing the breakouts and smoothing out the texture of your skin. Other than the bigger breakout risk, you will be red and even mildly bruised for a few days but nothing that makeup cant cover up 3 days post micro-needling.
Is it worth it ?
YES !! Micro-needling may not look fun but trust me when i say the results are worth it. Your skin will look and feel smoother, more radiant, pores will look smaller, fine lines+ wrinkles will look less visible and it will maintain healthy skin for years to come if you have it done yearly. Who doesn’t want to NOT age ? and who doesn’t want to reverse the signs of aging or damage done to your skin ?
