Your face is the window into your youthful appearance, but you may wear fewer clothes during the summer and show more skin. Whether you want your face or other areas of your body, summer is a great time to have microneedling done. Microneedlling is a popular and effective treatment for turning back the clock.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an outpatient procedure in which small needles prick the skin to create tiny wounds. The pen-like device has tiny, surgical steel needles that puncture the skin and create tiny little wounds. In response, your body reacts by trying to heal the microscopic wounds. In doing so, blood flow increased to the microneedling surface. This creates more toned skin and can make skin appear smoother. It can be used to make skin appear firmer, as well as to reduce the visibility of scars and wrinkles. It is safe to use on all skin types. It is even possible to use microneedling in combination with other procedures.
Microneedling Is the Perfect Choice for Your Busy Summer Schedule
Procedures take about 30-60 minutes; you may need to take the rest of the day off to recover, since your skin may be tender or more sensitive afterward. Depending on why you choose to have a microneedling procedure, you may need more than one. Deeper scars and larger pores may require more than one treatment to get the best results.
Prevent Skin Damage
This time of year, you are likely spending a lot more time outside. To take care of your skin and keep it looking young, be sure to wear sunscreen. You should wear SPF 30 or higher and reapply regularly when you are outside.
