What is Microneedling? Its known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling.
This procedure is performed by a device covered with tiny needles to cause micro injury to the skin to promote healing by poking holes into the skins surface.
Risk vs Reward.
Will this pay off? The answer is yes!
If you’ve suffered from sunken in areas, fine lines, discoloration this is a great procedure that takes less than 30 minutes .
Microneedling is not limited to the face this can be done on the legs, arms, back and neck.
Common mistakes when treating the face is leaving the neck untreated, that is a tale,tale sign of aging.
Downtime is very minimal, it’s equivocal to a sunburn. Redness will be prevalent during the skins healing process, which is 3 to 4 days.
PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
Home micrneedling tools are available for purchase, and are often seen on Amazon. If you are considering that route, DON’T.
Microneedling is creating trauma to the skin so it can heal. If done incorrectly you can risk infection and scarring.
