The skin is among the most coveted features of beauty. Clear, smooth, and glowing skin has become the benchmark for a youthful complexion. As the holiday season approaches, we all want to look our best by attaining that perfect holiday glow. Get your holiday party ready with microneedling to have your skin refreshed and revitalized ahead of the festivities.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenating procedure that helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. It uses tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin to promote natural healing and collagen production. This treatment targets wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and other signs of aging. It’s also perfect for achieving a smoother, brighter complexion.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling has numerous benefits and minimal risks, unlike other skin rejuvenation procedures. Firstly it is a highly effective way to rejuvenate the skin and restore its youthful, healthy look. It can reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging and improve skin texture. It can also help improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and enlarged pores.
Unlike other procedures that use light, lasers, or heat, microneedling does not put you at risk of developing skin discoloration. Therefore, it is also ideal for individuals with much darker skin tones. Additionally, you can use microneedling on all body parts to reduce wrinkles and aging, including the face, legs, back, and neck.
What to expect from a Microneedling session
Before beginning the procedure, your healthcare provider will clean your skin and apply a numbing ointment or cream. Your healthcare provider will then give the numbing cream time to react and take effect, typically 30 to 40 minutes. Once the skin is numb, the healthcare provider will use either an electric tool or a hand-held roller to make incisions into your skin.
Using the tiny needles in the roller, the healthcare provider will roll it gently across your skin to make small incisions. Depending on the area receiving treatment, a microneedling session lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours and is relatively painless. You may experience slight discomfort during the procedure as the tiny needles penetrate your skin. However, it is generally not uncomfortable or painful.
After the procedure, you may experience mild swelling and redness for a few days. This is a normal reaction as your skin adjusts to the treatment. Your skin may also be slightly pink or red, but it should not last more than a few days. You may also experience mild discomfort and irritation, which you could reduce with an ice pack. You can wear makeup after a day but stay out of the sun until you heal.
Microneedling is a great way to boost your skin for the holidays. The procedure is relatively painless and can bring various benefits, such as reduced wrinkles and improved skin texture. It is a safe way to get the perfect holiday glow with minimal risks and a short recovery period.
