If you where like me, you’ve heard all the talk about microneedling and seen those weird roller things and been like, why would I put that on my face? Well, actually, don’t put those on your face. Seriously, the rolling motion causes skin tearing. Which is NOT what microneedling is really supposed to do. Alot of ‘professional’ machines do still tear and drag. (Usually because they are dull. Want to know how they get dull? Too much use. And that’s not just on your face, that includes others too, yuck. That’s why here at Complete we use the Skin Pen. Each client has their own tip that gets tossed at the end of their appointment, no reuse. Aswell as a condom-like covering AND the hand piece is 100% sealed, so no yucky skin or blood particles up in it’s, or your, grill)
FYI: Does blood make you queasy? Well fear not. Unlike what I’m sure you’ve seen online, there should be minimal bleeding. After the procedure, your skin should look like.. an even sunburn.
Let’s get to the juicy stuff.
Microneedling may help with issues like:
- Hair loss
- Dark spots or patches on your skin
- Large pores
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
You heard right, not only is it great for the face, it can be done on the body. Hands age like nobodies business, imagine the difference microneedling would make? And don’t even get me started on necks.
How does it work?
It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels
