Microneedling: Everything you need to know
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates collagen production and can improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about microneedling!
From its name alone, it’s clear that microneedling involves some needles. However, they're much smaller than you might think! When the needles are inserted into the skin, the process triggers a wound healing process. This process includes the production of collagen and elastin, which are key components in giving skin its structure and firmness. You can expect to see results after just one session, with improvements continuing over time with additional treatments. The process itself is relatively comfortable; you may experience some prickling as the needles are inserted into the skin and minor redness afterwards. At Glow Envy we make it our top priority to manage any pain which is why we use a prescription numbing cream to minimize any discomfort.
Now that you know what microneedling is and how it works, let’s discuss the key benefits. First of all, it’s a safe process with extremely low risk of any side effect. It also has shorter recovery times than other cosmetic procedures. After just one session, you may notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improved skin tone and texture. Fun fact:A clinical study found “4 microneedling sessions 1 month apart shows up to 400% increase in collagenlastin deposition at 6 months. Collagen is a HUGE factor in anti aging; a key component in rejuvenating skin texture and suppleness.
Additionally, it can help with the appearance of scars caused by acne or surgery.
Microneedling is an effective process for achieving youthful-looking skin. It’s minimally invasive and has minimal side effects, making it a great option for anyone looking to i
mprove the appearance of their skin. It is a procedure that can be done on any skin type or tone.
