So Microneedling…it kinda sounds scary, cause well…tiny needles on your face?
I promise it’s not!
I came in and they put the numbing gel all over my face. I laid in the bed and did some social media scrolling for 30 minutes – then it was show time.
My nurse was fabulous. She was actually training a shadow so it was really informative listening to her describe all of the steps. It was really interesting. Our bodies are so cool!
10-15 minutes and wha-lah.
I was looking all cool with blood on my face!
My nurse said I have really thick skin (Yass I do girl) and she said I have good collegian! I do use collegian powder in my coffee everyday so this makes me think it’s doing something right!!
So now what?! What was all of that for?! What did I just do?
So Microneedling gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen & elastin production, improve skin tone, texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, or blemishes. -All the things I want!
According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment.
