Tired of seeing the fine lines and wrinkles on your face every day? It’s time for you to be introduced to microneedling! Let’s dive into how microneedling addresses fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to stimulate collagen production using the body’s natural healing response.
During the microneedling process, tiny sterilized needles prick the surface of your face or other parts of the body. A roller of minuscule needles is run over the surface of your face creating small pricks.
Talk with Vitalize Mind & Body about whether microneedling is a good option for you.
Major Benefits Of Microneedling
Microneedling is safe and there are few complications. It is a simple procedure which produces visible results after the first treatment. It is also more affordable than laser resurfacing since that procedure costs four times as much.
The tiny pricks from microneedling boost collagen and elastin to fight fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition, you can expect the following benefits:
- Reduces the appearance of acne scars
- Minimizes large pores
- Reduces hyperpigmentation or dark spots from sun damage
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
- Smooths uneven skin tone
- Promotes hair growth in people with alopecia
What To Expect
The first step will be to smooth numbing cream on your face so you cannot feel any of the needle pricks. Vitalize Mind & Body will move the rolling tool all over your face, and there may be a bit of bleeding. The session will last 10 to 20 minutes.
A cream or serum will be added to your face to finish the procedure. Most people need 4 to 6 sessions for maximum results.
Although most people have the face treated, it is possible to treat the stomach or thighs.
Be Wary of At-Home Treatments
There are some home-based over-the-counter microneedling kits you can find. Understand that you can’t sterilize the needles as well as they can in a professional setting. Germs can spread and an infection could occur. Most importantly, you won’t get the same results.
Now that you have been introduced to microneedling, it’s time for you to experience the skin rejuvenation you have been wanting.
