Microneedling, or sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that does wonders to your skin. Using a device that tiny, tiny fine needles, our aesthetician at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa creates incredibly small punctures to the top layer of the skin, which caused the body to create new collagen.
One of our client’s favorite things about microneedling is that there’s virtually no down-time; you’ll want to skip make-up for the day, but that’s about it. Microneedling is amazing for all types of skin, and is usually a great option for everyone as the benefits are numerous. Afraid it’ll hurt? You’ll receive a medical-grade topical cream that helps numb your face, and usually the discomfort is minimal.
So, what exactly does microneedling help with? Below are some of the incredible benefits of microneedling at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa.
Like the ghosts of teenage years past, acne scars can haunt our faces for years. Microneedling is effective, that in a report from the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, is stated that 100% of participants reported significant improvements of signs of scaring with microneedling.
As an Arizona resident, the sun is inevitable. And if you’re like most of us, you skipped the sunscreen in your younger years, resulting in pigmentation and discoloration, I.E sunspots. Microneedling stimulates collagen growth, which reduces this kind of damage.
This is such a common complaint and so many of us feel like we suffer from tiny-potholes on our face; enlarged pores are the worst! Luckily, microneedling can actually reduce the size of your pores by way of more collagen production.
Boost your skin care products
That incredibly expensive face cream you love actually only penetrates 4-8% of the skin, according to a study in ScienceDirect. Microneedling actually helps your favorite products absorb better because of the thousands of tiny punctures in the skin.
