6 Top Benefits of Micro-Needling
So, you’re wondering why you should opt for a treatment that involves small needle punctures to your skin?
Here are 6 of my top reasons:
- Improves acne scarring
- Boosts collagen and elastin
- Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoothes skin for more radiant skin tone, lifting dull, lifeless complexion
- Allows the skin to better absorb serums and creams
- Helps pigmentation and sun damage
With all of those benefits in mind, who’s with me when it comes to Micro-Needling?
Still need to know more about the procedure before you give Micro-Needling a try?
In simplified terms, micro-needling creates tiny skin punctures that trigger the body’s natural healing response, (the body will naturally rush to heal and repair this trauma). This process results in a plumper and more youthful appearance. Collagen production is stimulated (which naturally decreases after our mid-20s), and hyaluronic acid is introduced to enhance hydration.
The outcome? Firmer, smoother skin – hallelujah – a skin-rejuvenation miracle!
Following the procedure, it is crucial to use high SPF sun protection and avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours. This practice should be incorporated into your daily skincare routine for long-term benefits anyway.
Why Choose Professional Micro-Needling Over At-Home Devices?
As a professional I can use sharper needles for Micro Needling, ensuring safety while delivering the most effective results.
At home devices will work to a degree, but will be more gentle and less effective at reducing injury to skin. And will not be as result driven.
Ready to give micro–needling a try?
I recommend a series of four micro-needling treatments over four months. You can complement these sessions with other facials, such as skin peels or hydrating facials, to target specific skin concerns. My Katherine Daniels resurfacing treatment, in between micro-needling sessions, is a personal favourite.
Studies have shown that four micro-needling sessions spaced four weeks apart lead to increased collagen and elastin production for up to six months after completing the treatment. You can’t argue with results like that!
My micro-needling sessions are competitively priced at £75 per session, offering needle sizes of 0.5mm, 1mm, or 1.5mm, depending on your comfort level. For maximum impact, I’d recommend 1.5mm needles, as they pack a punch (this is what I personally use).
