Whether it be wrinkles, stretch-marks, scars, or hyper-pigmentation, Microneedling is your new best friend.
You've probably heard about Microneedling as it has gained popularity in the last few years. Microneedling is quickly becoming a popular alternative to botox and filler when it comes to looking younger and refreshed! So....Does it really live up to all the hype that it's getting?
First off, how does it work?
Anytime you get a cut or a scrape your body quickly scabs and heals itself. The protein responsible for this quick healing is called collagen. Microneedling takes this natural healing method that your body already has in place and twists it to your advantage.
By using incredibly tiny needles to make microscopic holes in the skin, it triggers the bodies natural collagen response. Now don't worry, your face isn't going to scab or anything that extreme, but it may get a bit red at first. The tiny tiny holes also allow for serums to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, which allows for a much higher moisture retention than your normal lotion application.
What does the Collagen do?
Collagen is responsible for your skins plumpness and elasticity, so when the bodies natural collagen response is triggered by microneedling all of the collagen that begins to dissipate from age will be replenished. This will leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
So how quickly can you expect results?
Like most skin treatments microneedling is most successful when it is done repeatedly. We recommend getting 3 treatments 3 weeks apart to kick start your collagen production, and then getting treatments every 3 months or so afterwards if needed to maintain. Most clients begin seeing results as early as an hour after their first treatment!
So what are you waiting for! The weather may soon be frightful, but we will help you to look oh so delightful. Book your microneedling appointment today!
