What is Micro Needling? Who would benefit from this? Why should you do it? I’ve asked myself these questions and researched this option as well. Here is what I found out, please only use this information as it is intended, not to diagnose any medical conditions or counteract instructions from your doctor.
What is micro needling? Micro needling is simply using a derma roller with small needles embedded in it, to prick the skin. Also described as a collagen induction therapy. This treatment is minimally invasive, and can help with acne scars, large pores, and fine lines and wrinkles.
There are various benefits from having this treatment done. Brighter, firmer skin, smaller pores, and faded scars. But beauty comes at a cost, micro needling with a doctor can cost up to $700 per treatment, and is not covered by insurance. But there are risks as well. Bleeding, bruising, infection, and peeling can occur.
Micro needling is done in a doctor’s office, however there are some rollers that you can use in your own home, but these don’t puncture the skin much at all, so you may not get as much benefit from them.
Be sure to use care after a micro needling session by applying a serum. The best serum to use after a micro needling session is a hyaluronic acid. This is super moisturizing and after needling, it will penetrate deeper providing more benefit and hydration. Do not use Vitamin C or other retinols for a full 48 hours after your session, as this could cause damage to your skin.
Have you had this treatment done? Would you have this treatment done? I would be willing to try it honestly. Minimal pain, maximum benefits. Let me know your thoughts by leaving comments.
