Microneedling: The Basics

Summer is coming to an end, and as life slows down (or so we hope!) a little bit, you might be thinking of treating yourself to a spa day. Did you know that Skin Body Soul offers Microneedling services that will leave you glowing, and looking younger? 

While Microneedling is something you could do year-round, you might have thought about waiting until the weather cools down, and the sun is less intense. If you’re familiar with the aftercare routines, you can schedule a Microneedling session whenever your heart desires, but if you’re a first-timer, and want to get your sun on for another few weeks, Fall is just around the corner and Microneedling is in! 

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a fantastic way to help the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and stretchmarks and correcting pigmentation variations and skin imperfections. The process is minimally invasive and uses fine needles to stimulate your own body to produce new collagen. While it may sound intense, the results are worth it! You’ll be looking younger, with glowing skin and fewer wrinkles.

Benefits of Microneedling 

The benefits of Microneedling are far and wide, and we might as well just get into them because there’s so much to talk about! 

  • Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Scar treatment
  • Sun damage
  • Anti-aging 
  • Shrinks pores
  • Improves the effectiveness of topical products 
  • Fights stretch marks 
  • Rosacea reduction
  • Acne improvements
  • Fewer side effects than laser or intensive peels

Best Practices

For maximum results, we recommend beginning with 4-6 treatments, spaced every 4-6 weeks. If you have scars that you would like to reduce, we suggest 6-8 treatments. Maintenance-based treatments every 12 weeks post help reduce the signs of aging and continually stimulate collagen production as we age keeping your skin youthful. Everybody’s skin is different, so it’s best to find a treatment routine that works for you!
