OK. So any sentence in the English language with the word, “needling” could sound a bit scary…but micro-needling is in fact quite fascinating in the world of skincare!
Micro-needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process, regenerates collagen and elastin – so in other words, it sorta tricks the skin to thinking it’s damaged on a micro level so all the repair cells are produced to heal that area. See! It’s cool, right?
You’re a great candidate for micro-needling if you suffer from the following:
• Acne pit scars
• Surgical scars
• Stretch marks
• Fine wrinkles
• Burn marks
The results? You receive smooth skin, achieve even skin tone and texture.
If you do your research, you may find another technique known as Fraxel. While the end result is the same, this route uses laser treatments that may cause a lot of pain, numbing of the face and of course, comes with a hefty price tag. Treatments can range any where from $900-$1500 and multiple sessions might be required.
With micro-needling, one treatment could easily suffice but sometimes customers can continue every 12 weeks. You do the math ?
