Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure in which the Aesthetician from Samaeo Skin Spa applies a stamp-like device to your skin to create micro-wounds in the outer layer of your epidermis. The stamp is equipped with tiny needles that create small holes that are invisible to the naked eye but cause your body’s wound-healing processes to go into full action.
As a result, growth factors rush to your skin to regulate cellular growth and promote new, healthy skin cells. The controlled injuries stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which add volume and structure to sagging, scarred, and wrinkled skin.
What common skin concerns does microneedling address?
Microneedling addresses a wide variety of common skin concerns. These include:
- Age or sun spots
- Large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Sagging skin
- Uneven skin tone
The microholes created with microneedling make your skin more receptive to topical products, too. Anti-aging serums and creams can penetrate deeper to offer a greater impact on your skin’s look and feel.
Does microneedling hurt?
A microneedling session may be slightly uncomfortable, but most clients do just fine with the procedure. The Aesthetician applies a numbing cream to your face prior to treatment to ease the sensation and make the process more tolerable.
What are the side effects of microneedling?
Microneedling has limited side effects. You may have some skin irritation and redness in the first few days following a session, but you can go right back to regular activities. If you have lingering redness or swelling that makes you feel self-conscious, makeup can be used to cover up.
You will need to apply sunscreen in the days following microneedling as your skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
When are the results of microneedling evident?
The initial redness of microneedling fades within about 36 hours to reveal glowing skin. You’ll see the optimal effects of microneedling within a few weeks. As your skin rejuvenates, new cells replace the old, and collagen and elastin production increases.
