How Often Should You Microneedle Your Face?

How Often Should You Microneedle Your Face

The microneedling procedure has long been practiced by leading world cosmetologists as an extremely effective and minimally invasive medical cosmetic procedure. What microneedling does is create many micro-punctures on the skin with thin needles using special devices called a dermapen, which enhances penetration of anti-aging solutions and enhances the skin’s natural ability to regenerate. It can be used for both the face, body and for the scalp. 

Initially, microneedling was developed by plastic surgeons in the 1990s. During a medical study at that time, it was found that skin micro-punctures stimulate the tissue repair process and increase the absorption of the active components contained in medical or cosmetic serums.

According to the results of studies conducted in Japan, the penetration of beneficial substances into the skin improves 100,000 times after microneedling compared to standard methods.

What is Microneedling for?

Microneedling sessions involve shallow micro perforations, or “pricking” of the skin using a special device. At the same time rejuvenation serums are used to help aboard and penetrate into the skin.

At the end of the procedure, soothing masks are applied to the procedure area.

To achieve the longest effects, sessions involve a series of 3 to 6 procedures. A one-time microneedling procedure only initiates the process. Microneedling is recommended not more once every 14 days.

The procedure is offered to any woman who wants to improve the condition and appearance of the skin of their face and body. 

Using a dermapen with thin needles, you can also reduce the subcutaneous fat layer, get rid of excess accumulation of intracellular fluid, and eliminate puffiness. If desired by the patient, the procedure can be carried out not only on the face, but also on the scalp to stimulate hair growth. A rejuvenating effect can be achieved on the neck or hands, and the price of microneedling will depend on the area of treatment. 

A great advantage of this technique is it is virtually painless, unlike various types of peeling, which remove keratinized skin cells using chemical or thermal peeling.

Microneedling For the Face

The microneedling procedure is characterized by a low level pricking of the skin. Primarily this procedure can be used for cosmetic defects such as:

  • Fine wrinkles, sagging skin, and other first signs of aging
  • Hyperpigmentation of hormonal origin
  • Stretch marks & scars

Specialists from all over the world prefer the microneedling method because of its simplicity and effectiveness. The design of the dermapen eliminates the very deep penetration of needles into the layers of the skin, the injury of which contributes to the formation of scars.

According to studies, microneedling turns out to be much more effective than chemical peeling, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and the results of this procedure were beyond praise for the synthesis of collagen and elastin. The results after the microneedling procedure are comparable with the results after laser CO2 rejuvenation or phototherapy (IPL).

I have been going to see Yulia just shy of a year for the Brazilian Sugaring. I first started seeing her during my second trimester. She always made me feel so comfortable. She was patient, personable, and professional. She truly is an experienced and qualified licensed esthetician. I drive well over an hour just to book with her-she is that good! If you’re on the fence about doing this, don’t be! You will be in good hands!

If you have not yet experienced waxing or sugaring services, I highly recommend trying it. To put it short, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!! I recently received my services from Loralei, who I found to be professional, welcoming, and straightforward. I was impressed by her patience, she took the time to thoroughly explain each step of the process, ensuring there were no surprises or misunderstandings. Although many of the services I received were first time, this will not be my last.…

Jaylene was absolutely amazing! She was able to see me the same day and remove my old lashes and do a full set. She made them appear cat eye and they are just gorgeous! This spa also sells some amazing jewelry and skin care products. I’ve tried a few already and am in love. This is my new permanent salon for any brow, lash, or facial needs.
