I’ve decided to start a new weekly series where I talk about various skincare treatments that I’ve been wanting to try out and share the whole experience with y’all! I plan to do one a week and at the end share a before and after photo…
So a few weeks ago, desperate to find some relief for my skin I decided to try microneedling at Cosmedial Spa. I had gotten to the point where I felt like nothing was helping my skin anymore and had heard wonderful things about the results. I had a lot of hyper-pigmentation that REALLY bothered me and everything I’ve tried essentially did nothing to help. Plus Kim K did it so that means it’s got to be worth trying!
Basically what microneeding does is create micro-wounds to the skin to traumatize the skin and increase blood flow in that area. So microneedling punctures the skin with a bunch of tiny needles to create a controlled injury which triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin…which will create an improvement in skin texture, firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, acne, and hyper pigmentation.
The process was quick, not nearly as painful as I had imagined, and results were obvious as soon as the following day. The initial redness only lasts a couple of hours and then there was some minor peeling for a few days afterwards…but overall the downtime was minimal.
The following day my skin was glowing and improvement was obvious. I’ve done 2 treatments so far and will complete 6 over the next few weeks. I am very excited to see the final results!
