Let’s “face” it – we all have minor things about our appearances that we would like to change, and most of these desired makeovers come in the facial region. Maybe you have a few too many wrinkles from all those days out on the beach as a teenager, or perhaps your longtime battle with acne is finally taking its long-overdue toll. Whatever imperfections you see when looking in the mirror, no matter how faint or extreme, micro-needling might be able to help.
What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics, meant to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, skin texture, tone and color. When undergoing a micro-needling procedure, the patient’s face is poked at an extremely fast rate with the Eclipse MicroPen – the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. The result? A stimulation in the growth of collagen and elastin, which, according to some doctors, can even go so far as to stop the natural aging process in its tracks.
Does it hurt?
Hardly, and some people don’t even feel any pain at all. The pen causes what are known as “micro injuries,” or injuries to only the first layer of skin. As a result, the average patient reports feeling only a slight vibration during their treatment, with an average pain rating of only 1.08/10. That’s hardly noticeable! If you do have overly sensitive skin, however, some people recommend applying a layer of numbing cream to your face prior to the session, as this will help to dull the senses.
What else is micro-needling good for?
Micro-needling is a great procedure for anyone with disfiguration scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, sun damage, aging skin, and larger pores. Micro-needling isn’t restricted to use on the facial region, either; the MicroPen can be used on almost any patch of skin that has fallen victim to one these unfortunate but common damages.
The best part of it all? It takes as little as one single session to see results, regardless of where the procedure is being done!
