What is Micro Needling and how to make it last
You’d be surprised with the speed skin care treatments are evolving. Last month, we talked about dermaplaning https://scalisiskincare.com/blogs/jill-039-s-beauty-blog/thinking-about-dermaplaning-what-is-it-and-what-to-expect and this month we are going to talk about micro needling.
If you are afraid of needles (like me) then you probably won’t be a big fan of this treatment but let’s see what it has to offer.
Micro needling is a relatively new treatment that promises to give people younger looking skin. It has been described as an alternative to Botox, resulting in a dewy and fresher looking skin.
How does it work?
Now this is the scary part; it uses a device that has small needles in it which is pushed or rolled onto the face and neck which allows your skin to create controlled punctures, giving it nudge to turn into repair mode. It is not actually scary because the needles used are between 0.5mm to 3.0 mm, which is a smaller version of the traditional needles.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro needling is said to be transforming the skin care industry but is it really worth it or there are other alternatives?
There are always other alternatives which gives you similar results but micro needling has some great benefits and has proven to be immensely successful. It reduces fine and deep wrinkles, and stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin (key to having younger looking skin). Moreover, it is a great treatment to repair visible scars (YES! Time to bid farewell to all those acne scars). Most essentially, it helps with aging skin – allowing it to age gracefully.
It all sounds an excellent and glossy turn in skin treatments. However, you have to ensure to take care of your skin after the treatment. The use of rejuvenating creams like Bob’s Cream will help the healing process and keep the results of the treatment intact.
