Micro needling is fast becoming the facial treatment of 2018. After huge press coverage on the TV from Dr Tijion Esho on E4s body fixers, bloggers, tweeters and intagrammers are going wild for this new Aesthetic facial so this month I thought we’d have a little look on why people are loving it so much.
There are many different types of micro needling on offer in clinics and salons some preferring a pen device for ease, hygiene and safety and others preferring a dermal roller. Both treatments trigger collagen production through a microneedling technique treating a range of skin issues, from wrinkles and acne scars to stretch marks and sagging skin.
During the treatment, ultra thin needles create minuscule columns in the dermis, which triggers the skin’s healing abilities. As the skin heals, it fills in the columns with fresh, new skin cells, resulting in firmer, smoother skin and new collagen production. What’s great is the treatment requires virtually no downtime because it does not disturb the outer-most layer of skin, while promoting healing and growth in the layers below. It’s Suitable for all ages, skin types and gender and results clearly show a reduction signs of aging in skin, wrinkles, skin impurities, acne scars, stretch marks, skin tightening and pigmentation marks.
A course of treatments is always recommended for best results and with good after care and a quarterly top up results can last for up to 24 months. Sunscreen is a must post treatment but as we all know this is my passion and is always seen as the best anti ageing cream you can use, however that’s next months topic so I’ll stop there. Micro Needling is exciting and a great facial to try if your concerned about having dermal fillers or Botox as the results are equally as good over a period of time.
