New Year, New Collagen! If you’re on a quest for smoother, firmer, and glowing skin, microneedling might just be the answer. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this noninvasive procedure has become a go-to for rejuvenating the skin, improving texture, and addressing various skin concerns.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves a pen device with fine needles that gently penetrates the dermis, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This results in the formation of new collagen and elastin, making the skin tighter, smoother, and firmer. The best part? It’s a cumulative process, with optimal results seen after six consecutive sessions.
Why Choose Microneedling?
The benefits of microneedling are extensive, including:
- Rejuvenating the skin
- Improving skin texture
- Softening fine lines
- Firming the skin
- Lightening hyperpigmentation, age spots, and melasma
- Softening acne scars and promoting acne healing
- Enhancing skin elasticity
Experience smoother, lifted, and glowing skin with minimal downtime after each session.
Enhance Your Microneedling Experience
For even more pronounced outcomes, consider combining your sessions with Cosmetic Acupuncture. Using anti-aging skincare actives daily can further amplify the results. At Castle Hill Fitness, microneedling sessions also include LightStim infrared light treatment and the application of Osmosis MD facial serums.
Preparing for Microneedling
Ensure the best results by following these pre-session tips:
- Avoid active topical exfoliants, peels, and Retinoid products three days before.
- Minimize sun exposure.
- Limit alcohol intake and high histamine foods.
Downtime and Aftercare
Don’t let the term “downtime” deter you. After microneedling, any discomfort is minimal, and redness typically subsides in 3-5 days. To soothe your skin, consider applying a post-treatment serum, chilled aloe, a chilled mask, or a mineral water spray.
Feel free to resume your daily activities immediately after microneedling, but hold off on makeup and oily products for 24 hours.
