microneedling with Glow Med Spa Encino
Visit: Glow Med Spa Encino
Beauty doesn't need to be painful –even if the treatment has the word 'needle' in it. It does sound a bit scary right? Well, I tried it, and honestly, it was kind of a breeze. Microneedling is a minimally invasive strategy for clearing up acne scars, lessening fine lines and wrinkles, and fading stretch marks. I don't know about you, but I've got a couple of battle scars that could use a little clearing up.
So what exactly is it? The treatment uses small needles to prick skin, prompting the creation of healing collagen. I admit I was a bit nervous, but it was a quick in-and-out with the help of some numbing cream and the soothing words of the technician who kept saying "you're doing really well," as the pen vibrated against my skin.
So how does it work? It's basically a little motorized pen with tiny needles at the tip. Those hardworking, mini-needles the pen uses perforate the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis, poking holes so tiny that you can’t see them with the naked eye. I should know, I looked for them everywhere to no avail. Once the holes are made, your skin realizes it must heal the injuries, so collagen and elastin flood the area, where they begin to regenerate and renew your skin. And voila, hello gorgeous!
