"Microneedling is currently a skin industry HOT TOPIC. There are sizes that typically range from .02 mm all the way to 2.5mm. Any needle size that is less than .3mm is considered a cosmetic instrument that is used to help product penetrate deeper into the skin. A needling device that is .3mm or higher will allow product to penetrate into the skin and also produce Collagen, which we know is a MUST for beautiful skin! This method is a beautiful natural way to help with skin rejuvenation, improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks! Depending on the needle size it can either be done by an aesthetician, nurse, or MD.
Although the world NEEDLE tends to frighten some of us this treatment is not as invasive as lasers, deep peels, or surgery. Microneedling creates micro channels without removing the entire hydralipoic layer of the skin, which minimizes the risk of post treatment bacteria growing on the epidermis.
Microneedling can be done using various modalities such as the a pen, stamp, and rollers. All of these methods are safe to use and can be done on the face and the body.
We are RAVING FANS of Microneedling because this all natural treatment is beneficial for a multitude of skin conditions and safe with minimal down time.
