Micro-needling skincare is a popular rejuvenation technique practiced in high-end spas and doctor’s offices around the world, including Denver. While it effectively delivers softer and smoother skin with fewer noticeable wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes, some people are naturally concerned about the idea of all those needles and the potential for a painful experience.
How Micro-needling Works
The skincare procedure is precisely what it sounds like, micro-needling. Micro-needling uses a unique device equipped with dozens of extremely fine, single-use needles. The treatment causes a controlled wound on your skin from the passing of the needles. These wounds allow your cells to stimulate collagen and elastin production in approximately three months.
The result is extra collagen and elastin (the building blocks of your skin) to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It is a great way to give your skin a boost during the dry Denver winters, where both outdoor and indoor spaces usually have very low humidity, and your skin can start to look sallow.
But Does It Hurt?
The procedure is very comfortable due to topical numbing cream, and quick as our technicians are highly trained and skilled. You might feel more sensation in places on your face that are less padded; for example, treatment on your forehead may feel more intense than treatment on your cheeks. Do not worry, though, as our technicians are incredibly experienced, and we adjust our settings based on each area of the skin as well as the individual client. We may perform several passes on deeper wrinkles or acne scars. Each treatment is unique and geared towards the client’s particular skincare concerns.
What Happens Afterward?
For a short time after your micro-needling skincare procedure, you may feel as if you have a mild sunburn, and there may be some redness. We advise our clients to pay extra attention to their skin’s hydration needs for the next few days. Your skin may stay a little red for a couple of days, but you can apply a tinted moisturizer the day following your procedure. The client sees maximum results within three months after the procedure, once your skin has fully ramped up its collagen production. However, you will notice immediate results approximately five days after the procedure. Your skin will glow! We recommend a series of four micro-needling treatment which can be repeated every six to eight weeks, so it’s a great way to treat yourself throughout the year in Denver.
