Are you looking for a new addition to your skincare routine? Microneedling might be what you’re looking for. 

This skin treatment helps your products sink deeper into your skin, encourages collagen renewal, and makes your skin feel soft and look great. More and more people are boosting their skin’s potential with microneedling. Are you willing to give it a try?

If you’re nervous about letting anything with “needle” in the name approach your face, you’re not alone. We’re here to explain why you needn’t worry. Keep reading to learn all about microneedling procedures.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a type of aesthetic spa treatment that targets the face to improve your skin texture, diminish signs of aging, and help with any discoloration. 

By sending tiny needles beneath the surface of the skin, the microneedling procedure stimulates collagen growth and renewal. Collagen is what keeps your skin plump and youthful.

While many potential clients are nervous about the pain, it’s actually a safe and nearly painless procedure.

What Should I Expect and How Should I Prepare?

Microneedling is a quick procedure, and preparing for it is easy. If you use any kind of harsh products, such as exfoliators or retinoids, it’s best to leave them out of your routine for a few days prior to your session. It’s also best to avoid sunlight.

When the procedure starts, your aesthetician will wash and dry your face. Then you’ll get a coating of numbing cream so you don’t feel the procedure. This cream sets into your skin for about a half-hour before the microneedling begins.

Depending on your skin type, the technician will choose various depths for the needles to penetrate. They may be deeper on some parts of the face than others. Feel free to ask questions about the depth and why they’re choosing it. 

The procedure should take less than a half-hour. You’ll feel tiny pin-pricks all over your skin that will be uncomfortable, but not painful. 

When you’re done, the aesthetician will give you a hydrating serum to cool and soothe your skin. You may experience some redness in the following hours. 


Should I Do Anything for Aftercare?

While your skin will return to “normal” about a day after your procedure, it will still be sensitive. Avoid harsh skincare items like exfoliants and acids and stay out of direct sunlight. 

Your skin may be better at absorbing products after your procedure, so get your favorite hydrating masks and moisturizers and feel the difference.

Why Should I Try It?

Microneedling is shown to be effective both for cosmetic reasons and to improve certain skin conditions. Treatment is quick and easy and the results last for several weeks.

If you keep up with your sessions, you’ll have glowing skin that looks vibrant and healthy even without a twelve-step skincare routine.

Is Microneedling Right for You?

If you want a new skincare treatment with proven results, microneedling is the answer. You’ll get youthful and renewed skin and the results are immediate. What’s not to love?
