Microneedling Will Transform Your Skin

No one enjoys having acne scars, enlarged pores or wrinkles. Did you know there’s a treatment out there that can solve all those problems? It’s called microneedling, and it is not as scary as it sounds. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an increasingly popular skin treatment that revitalizes your skin. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about this revolutionary skincare service. Please note that Hair M only offers microneedling at our Pearl District location.

Your esthetician will first apply a numbing gel to your face before any needle touches you. Then, your esthetician will insert a series of fine needles into your skin. It’s not as painful as you would think. The needles are very small, ranging from 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter. The pain is very manageable, especially with the numbing gel applied. The needles create tiny, miniscule holes in your skin. As your body heals the wounds, your skin naturally produces collagen and elastin. The result? Healthier, refreshed skin, smaller pores, and less noticeable facial flaws.

After the procedure, your skin will feel a little sensitive. It’s described as a pain similar to a sunburn. Your skin may also be a little more red than usual. Aside from those differences, the recovery time is minimal. You can resume your normal activities within a few hours. The only rule? Be mindful that your pores are now more open than usual. Try not to sweat or use any products that can clog your pores for the first few days. Also, since your skin will be slightly more sensitive than usual, sunscreen is essential.

Microneedling is not a new service, but it is gaining popularity due to its simplicity and versatility. It’s proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat scars, reduce pore size, and mask acne scars. It’s an in-office procedure with a relatively short healing time. Also, it’s great for all skin tones. Microneedling will not cause discoloration the way lasers do. Ready to try it out? Hair M’s Pearl District location is offering a series of three treatments for just $495 (regularly $275 each). Results can be seen within six weeks of your first treatment, but you’ll see better results from a series of three to six treatments. Keep in mind it’s recommended to wait four to six weeks between treatments.
