Show Your Skin Some Love This Month with Skin Needling
What better month than February to practice a little self-love and treat yourself? You deserve to look and feel your best every day, so you have the confidence to go out into the world and conquer your goals. If you’ve been thinking about investing in your skin care for a while, now’s the time to finally do it!
The wrinkles, dark spots, uneven pigment or other skin imperfections can be a thing of the past. Skin needling may be the solution that gives you the confidence to feel good in your skin.
In addition to staying hydrated, eating well, and keeping your skin moisturized, skin needling can have miraculous effects, making your skin glow brighter and look healthier than it has in years.
What Exactly is Skin Needling?
Skin needling is a quick, non-invasive procedure performed by a qualified skin care specialist to help the skin look younger and healthier. It is usually performed on the face but it can just as easily be done to areas of the chest, back, hands and neck as well.
The low rate of side effects for skin needling has made it a more popular treatment compared to the other more invasive options to enhance the appearance of skin.
This treatment can improve scarring and stretch marks, smooth wrinkles and lines, and can even out pigmentation patchiness. You can finally achieve younger and plumper looking skin easily through skin needling treatments.
How Skin Needling Works
Using small, fine needles, skin needling treatments prick the very top layer of the skin, producing beneficial rejuvenating punctures. This is done by using a specialized roller or stamp with tiny needles attached. The tiny needles puncture the skin just enough to create microscopic abrasions. However, depending on the situation, the needle size may vary to get the desired results for each patient.
When these tiny micro-abrasion are created from the dermal stimulation, it promotes the body’s natural healing response. This stimulates the creation of new skin cells and increases collagen production in the skin. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles, scaring and dark spots are reduced due to the collagen filling in those former imperfections.
Benefits of Skin Needling
Skin needling doesn’t harm the skin like other skin treatments have the potential of doing. It’s a safer alternative to other more intense skin treatments.
The process is less painful as it isn’t as invasive, and the small puncture discomfort is easily covered up with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied before the procedure.
Do you have sensitive skin? This alternative might be for you since it’s minimally invasive, making it less likely to result in harmful reactions and/or side effects.
How Long Until Results Are Visible?
To get the best results, multiple skin needling sessions will need to be performed. Within 6 to 8 weeks, you’ll start to see early results. However, the greatest results will be seen in the following months with repetitive treatments.
If you want to enhance the appearance of your skin to counteract daily and aging exposures, you might want to give skin needling a try. It’s also important to note that staying hydrated throughout the day is necessary to fresh, brighter skin. Add fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet to ensure your skin has the necessary nutrients to replenish and replace old skin cells.
Take the first step in feeling confident in the skin you’re in. Ask your crush out, speak up in work meetings, and let your new younger looking skin give you the self-confidence to be the best version of yourself.
