Microneedling is one of the most powerful facial treatments offered at Ivory Aesthetics. So if you’re looking for smooth, youthful skin, it’s definitely the treatment for you… There’s a reason everybody’s talking about it!
You may be thinking ‘what exactly is microneedling?’ Well, it’s not as scary as it may sound – trust us!
Minute needles are used to create tiny holes in only the surface layers of your skin. This encourages healthy new cell growth by triggering your body’s healing response. You can think of it as a form of exercise for your skin, making the cells stronger and healthier than ever. If you thought workouts were only for your body, you were wrong!
What are the benefits of microneedling?
We all have the same complaints about our skin: tiredness, the dreaded fine lines, large open pores, or even acne. However, just one microneedling treatment will encourage your skin to work hard beneath the surface (whilst you sit back and relax), leaving your complexion looking invigorated, brighter and healthier. You’ll walk away with evened-out fine lines, a smooth and even complexion, and minimised pores after just one sitting.
The biggest benefit is that it stimulates natural collagen production and allows products to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, fixing problems at the root level.
Does microneedling hurt?
The needles used are only two millimetres in length, and extremely thin, so any discomfort during the process will be barely noticeable. In fact, many describe it as a relaxing experience, and the results certainly speak for themselves!
How often should I have a microneedling treatment for the best results?
It can vary depending on your skin type, and exactly what results you’d like to see! If you just want to give your skin a treat every so often, then once every two to three months could be right for you. Treatments for more stubborn skin complaints such as scarring may be repeated every four to six weeks for optimal results.
How long does a microneedling session last?
The session will last for about 90 minutes. Your therapist will ensure you are super comfortable during the process, and will answer any questions or concerns you have. Your job is simply to relax and look forward to your vibrant, invigorated skin!
