Looking for a Summer Skin Reset?

We tend to associate dry, dull skin with the winter months. But, summer has a fair share of skin dangers and triggers as well, from sweat to pore-clogging SPF and harmful UVA and UVB rays. Microneedling is a quick and simple process that will have your skin glowing brighter than the August sun in no time, while also working to repair signs of sun damage. Keep reading to learn more about microneedling.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds left behind cause the body to produce more collagen and elastin — compounds that heal the skin and help make you look younger. In fact, one study found that skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment!

Getting more elastin and collagen in the skin is particularly important as we age and sustain repeated sun damage. The UV light from the sun breaks down the collagen strands that support firm, youthful-looking skin. Elastin also gets depleted, which deprives the skin of plumpness and optimal moisture. After long summer days spent in the sun, microneedling is just what your skin needs to restore elastin, collagen, moisture, and its glow.

Don’t worry; despite its name, the ‘needling’ part is relatively painless because your skin will be numbed with a topical cream before treatment begins. If you’re afraid of needles, you’ve got nothing to be afraid of with microneedling because you won’t even see the tiny needles built in to the interior of the microneedling pen.
