You may have heard of microneedling from celebrities, instagrammers, YouTubers, as well as fashion gurus alike. You may have even seen the images posted of blood layered faces giving the impression of an archaic and disturbing practice for the sake of beauty. That begs the question, what's microneedling's purpose and what exactly are it's benefits?
Microneedling, also known as 'collagen induction therapy' is a method of creating Nano- punctures in the skin. By creating these controlled tiny injuries, the body's natural response is to make what's known as fibroblast cells which in turn stimulate the production of collagen, the support system of healthy, buoyant skin. With regular Microneedling sessions (4-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart) youthfulness and radiance is restored.
Benefits of this wondrous cascade of collagen include reduction of the appearance of pitted acne scars and stretch marks, softening fine lines and wrinkles, and lightening of dark spots, leaving you with even toned skin. The hype is real and on the cutting edge of skin care... during treatment, it may not look pretty, but the results will! Days after your treatment, when the redness has gone away the glow comes out to play!
