At Island Glow Aesthetics, we’re passionate about you getting your glowiest skin yet. That’s why we love offering skin needling and microneedling.
Skin needling benefits include the rejuvenation of tone and texture for healthy, dewy skin. It’s also known as ‘Collagen Induction Therapy’, and it’s been a trusted, popular treatment for years, as it improves skin texture, softens scars, and smoothes out pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin needling is a surgical-grade technique that induces seriously sought-after collagen for elasticity and hydration. Essentially, the instrument used runs microneedles in a gliding motion over skin to puncture the epidermis and dermis, which activates the cells’ healing response. This creates a natural surge of collagen and elastin, resulting in remarkably firmer, brighter skin.
The science behind skin needling and microneedling is really fascinating. The microneedles create thousands of microchannels, and as the skin heals, the skin tightens with renewed collagen. Treatments are cumulative, meaning you can build on the new collagen that’s been created.
With numbing cream, skin needling is a relatively comfortable procedure, with little-to-no downtime depending on how your skin reacts. Mostly, patients experience some redness and very minor swelling for a couple of days after the treatment.
Side effects are mild, and you should be able to return to work and daily activities straight after the appointment. Skin needling aftercare involves wearing sunscreen and avoiding Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol, and similar agents for 12-48 hours after the treatment, as the skin channels are open and will be very sensitive to these types of products.
For most of our clients, we recommend at least three skin needling sessions to achieve optimal results. As mentioned, each treatment will build and increase collagen, so one treatment is great, two is better, and at least three will see absolutely fabulous results.
Keep in mind that each skin needling treatment should be carried out about six weeks apart.
Skin needling before and after pictures speak for themselves. Apart from the visible improvements after skin needling, there’s one thing that all our clients have in common, and that’s that they wish they’d had skin needling treatments sooner.
The results are fantastic, with improved tone and texture and reduced lines, scars, pores, and pigmentation. Results are comparable to laser therapies, without the risks that can occur.
Skin needling benefits people who want to target acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores. Not only does it enhance skin texture and overall tone, but it fades stretch marks, reduces and eliminates scars, controls cellulite, and is known to depigment sun-damaged skin.
Needless to say, microneedling and skin needling benefits are countless.
