Microneedling. Scary or the Latest Miracle Skin Treatment?
Microneedling has been on the market for a while but it is only recently that it has gained popularity.
We never would have imagined that a beauty treatment that uses tiny needles to prick the skin at surface level would become our most sought-after service. More and more clients are abandoning the usual peels and HydraFacials, and opting for Microneedling for that much-needed collagen boost. Plumper, softer skin with stimulated collagen. Hello, younger-looking skin! By the time the second session is complete (and yes, it is sold in sessions), the client is hooked.
No pain, no gain? Not necessarily! After all, this beauty procedure involves needles, correct? But here’s the thing: SkinPen involves minimum pain, with no downtime, and the end results for your skin are amazing. This miracle procedure is NOW AVAILABLE at The Leonardo Spa! And it is on PROMOTION this JUNE. Read on as we needle you about what Microneedling entails.
What Is Microneedling?
The minimally invasive Microneedling improves myriad skincare concerns by promoting collagen production. And it does so by using fine, small needles that puncture the skin on the surface level. Sounds strange, yes, but Microneedling activates the skin’s own repair response by producing these tiny wounds that need remedying. So as your skin heals itself, it produces collagen.
The results you can expect:
- Reduces the signs of ageing; skin texture, diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduced hyperpigmentation
- Better absorption of skincare products
- Improves the appearance of scars (stemming from acne and stretch marks)
- Minimally invasive procedure performed in-office manageable recovery time
- Safe for all skin types, light to dark
- Effective on all body parts, including face, neck and décolleté
What to Expect
SkinPen® works by creating a series of hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis to stimulate the skin’s natural production of new collagen and elastin, helping skin to look and feel healthier. The needles cycle at 100+ stamps/second, potentially creating 1600+ microchannels per second when moving the SkinPen®.
During a Microneedling treatment, we thoroughly cleanse the area and apply a hyaluronic acid-based gel to the skin, which allows the device to glide more easily over the surface. Also, the gel absorbs into the skin and contributes to faster wound healing and to the skin’s plumper appearance after the procedure.
A full-face procedure takes about 30-45 minutes, and it includes a growth factor mask to speed up recovery. The Skin Pen Microneedling procedure involves three passes over the skin surface in first a horizontal direction, then vertical, and the final pass is performed in a circular motion.
Expect slight discomforts, like tiny pinpricks, a 45-minute timeframe and almost immediate results.
