Now that summer is over, it’s time to get ready for the holidays. But your skin may need a little pick-me-up before you’re ready to shine at this year’s office party or family gathering. Fortunately, microneedling can get your skin glowing again just in time for all the festivities.
Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including:
However, the benefits don’t stop there. One of the things our skincare patients love about microneedling is that treatments can be scheduled whenever they have an hour to spare. That’s all it takes to reap all of the rejuvenating rewards of this amazing procedure. There’s also little to no downtime following treatment. And with the hectic holiday season fast approaching, you can get a quick skin refresher that can seamlessly fit into your busy life.
Microneedling treatments are just about as comfortable as they can get. To ensure that your rejuvenation experience is a pleasant one, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the selected area prior to your session. After the anesthetic agent sets in, you’ll barely even feel the tiny needles working their magic to refresh and revitalize your outer layer. And if you don’t have time to recover from a chemical peel or laser treatment this holiday season, microneedling is definitely your best bet for healthier, glowing skin.
The beauty of microneedling is that almost anyone can benefit from the restorative effects that it provides. This procedure is suitable for any skin type—fair or dark, thick or thin. The right candidates are in good health and free from any infections, rashes, or fever. In those cases, the needles could have the opposite effect and worsen existing skin maladies.
The most requested area that our microneedling patients choose to target is the face. But this treatment is so versatile that it can be used on nearly any part of the body. That means most anywhere that can use a non-surgical pick-me-up can benefit from microneedling, including all of the areas exposed by that hot new holiday number, like the neck, decolletage, and hands.
On its own, microneedling is an extremely effective treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns. But you can enhance your results with the addition of targeted serums. PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, packs a revitalizing punch of healing factors that stimulate tissue regeneration. Or you can opt for replenishing vitamin C to give your skin an even greater boost. You’ll get more out of your personal skincare products too, as they will go on more evenly and be better-absorbed following microneedling treatments.
