Micro-needling for Glowing Skin

For the body, aging isn’t an easy or painless process. There are procedures to help reduce the appearance of a person's age. One of which happens to be micro-needling. This minimally invasive procedure is used to reduce and possibly even eliminate various scars, wrinkles, and large pores. The effect leads to healthier skin and a younger appearance.

What is Micro-needling?’

Micro-needling is a small procedure that aestheticians perform on an individual who is wanting to remove some effects of the aging process. The procedure is done with small needles that will be used to prick the skin. It helps to regenerate the skin as it creates new skin and collagen that give the recipient a healthy glow. 

This process can take up to an hour but may need several sessions in order to give the desired results. Your Salon and Spa & Greenbriar aesthetician can give you recommendations as to how many sessions will work the best work with your skin type. While the process may seem tedious, it’s worth it! The results are undeniable and will be beneficial to the health of your skin.

How Does it Work?

When the skin ages, it reduces the amount of collagen that is produced within the body. The small pricks from the needles trigger a damage response from the body to replace that tissue. When the tissue is replaced, the body must produce more collagen in order to replace the skin cells that were damaged. This creates a new, small layer of skin that is extremely healthy and restored. The new skin is even in tone and texture, reducing discoloration and wrinkles.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After the procedure is complete, there may be a small recovery period. However, since the procedure is non-invasive, there typically isn’t any downtime needed at all. Your aesthetician won’t let you leave without making sure you know what to do to help your recovery time.  

There may be minimal irritation for a couple of days following, but will quickly fade after that. Your skin may become more sensitive to sunlight, so sunscreen is a must, but sunscreen is beneficial for healthy skin on any sunny day. You will see results right away, and if your aesthetician recommends multiple visits, you will see better results after each session.
