Hello ladies! It’s Mandy, I am so excited to tell you about the latest beauty treatment I have experienced at Glow medical. Microneedling! This treatment is totally worth your while. I want to tell you all about my experience with microneedling. Let’s get to it
…So, what is microneedling?
Let me get started by explaining what exactly microneedling is.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skincare treatment that stimulates “wound healing,” or the body’s natural reaction to produce collagen. Microneedling has been around for centuries, most commonly as acupuncture. This modern version didn’t really take off until the early 2000s and has since been taking the beauty world by storm.
The benefits make microneedling worth the splurge. This treatment boosts collagen, promotes healthy circulation, and helps to tighten and lift skin. Plus, microneedling is ideal for treating those dreaded acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and even stretch marks.
Whoa, count me in!
So let’s talk about the process. Jessica first washed my face to make sure my skin is clean. Then she adds a numbing cream. Once my face was completely numb the magic starts. The tool that was used looks like a large pen, so you don’t actually see any needles. Jessica worked in sections on my face and the microneedling felt like a tickle to a mild scratching feeling.
Honestly, no part of my face actually hurt.
Let’s talk about after your treatment. The first time you look in the mirror you will see red skin like a sunburn. However this is normal. Your skin is supposed to look red after treatment. I promise it goes away! By the next day my face was not as red and I could put on makeup. By the third day my skin looked normal again. As the days went by my skin continued to improve. I noticed that my skin appeared to be more even and wrinkles were diminished. The only real downside from my microneedling experience was that my face did break out for a couple of days. Over all this would be a treatment I would do again.
I mean who doesn’t want younger more even and glowing skin?
