Microneedling or skin needling, sounds scary, but in reality, it is a very effective and practically painless way of achieving a totally radiant and luminous complexion.
Microneedling is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin. The treatment works by penetrating the top layers of the skin with micro-needles that create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation.
Microneedling has many advantages to the health of your skin. Here are our top 3 reasons you need to give it a try:
1. Boosts collagen production
The needling process slightly damages the skin below the surface, which your skin then repairs. Your body works to produce healthy new collagen and elastin fibres while it eliminates all damaged cells. In turn, new collagen reveals plumper, glowing and tighter skin.
2. Treats fine lines and wrinkles
The controlled injury that the procedure causes results in the repair production of collagen. Targeting collagen to the treated areas helps to fill in and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, as well as helping to rejuvenate the overall appearance of your complexion.
3. Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars
The microneedling process helps the skin to repair itself after it has encountered physical damage like cuts or scars. Your skin will eliminate old tissue cells that cause scarring and will replace it with new and fresh collagen. Similarly, with stretch marks they can rid or reduce the appearance and the younger the stretch mark the more successful the treatment will be.
The treatment takes 30 minutes and requires no downtime, so you can resume your day-to-day activities straight away (the perfect lunch break treatment). Despite the needles, the treatment is also not painful and a numbing cream can be applied to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the treatment.
