When you think about skin care, the first thing that comes to mind is likely not sticking needles in your face, right?
Despite sounding like a bizarre beauty treatment, microneedling is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. The treatment is effective at helping clients achieve their dream skin and could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
If you have ever wondered if microneedling can work for you, read on to learn more about this treatment offered at Glamour MD and how it can help you with your skin goals.
What is Microneedling and How Does it Work?
Microneedling is a beauty procedure carried out by a professional who uses a pen-shaped, rolling tool that contains small needles. The needles are tiny, and the puncture “wounds” are just as small as they penetrate your skin.
The goal of microneedling is not to severely damage the skin or cause pain, so you must book your appointment with a reputable provider who is specifically trained in microneedling. Failing to do so can result in skin damage.
Microneedling will cause some temporary damage to the skin, but this is normal. Small puncture wounds to the skin signal the brain to produce more collagen and elastin to help heal the damaged skin. Collagen and elastin are vital for youthful, vibrant, and plump skin.
What are the Benefits?
Microneedling can be done for more than anti-aging benefits (reduced fine lines and wrinkles).
Other microneedling benefits that clients experience include:
Reduction in the appearance of scarring
Reduction in hyperpigmentation and age spots
Reduction in the size of pores
Makes skin more responsive to regular skin care products (your serums and moisturizers will penetrate more deeply after microneedling)
Reduction in rosacea
The benefits of microneedling are extensive, but the biggest selling point is this: If you want glowing, radiant skin that looks youthful and is blemish-free, give microneedling a try!
What Areas Can be Treated?
Microneedling is most commonly performed on the face but you can also choose to have microneedling done on any area of your body.
Most commonly, clients look to microneedling when they want a collagen boost. The most popular areas of the body that require this boost include the chest, legs, buttocks, and any body part with stretch marks.
Is There any Downtime?
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime. Unlike a chemical peel or advanced laser treatment, you can easily fit your microneedling appointment into your lunch break and head back to the office with no issues.
Keep in mind that your skin will be slightly red and irritated immediately after your appointment, but this usually subsides significantly after an hour or so.
When Can You Start Seeing Results?
Your skin should look more vibrant and radiant immediately after your appointment but we recommend clients book at least 4 microneedling appointments to truly experience the full benefits of microneedling.
Also, keep in mind that your body needs time to produce collagen - it isn’t an immediate process. It takes time to fully heal the wounds caused by microneedling. In our experience, it takes 4-6 weeks for the skin to fully plump up and look its best.
