The name might have made it clear to you that the microneedling skin treatment process involves using tiny needles on your face or skin. Microneedling is one of the most popular and asked about procedures at Nado Skin and Body Spa in Port Stanley… But what is microneedling exactly and what can it do for your skin?
What is a Microneeding Treatment for?
What Happens When You Get Micro Needling?
During the process of microneedling, tiny sterilized needles puncture the skin surface in the targeted area. This causes minor “wounds” in the skin. Depending on the length of the needles, the punctures can be on the epidermal layer or go down to the dermal layer. To help heal these wounds or holes, your face starts the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This process patching the skin, wrinkles, scars, etc. offering the client a more uniform look in their skin tone and texture.
In the scalp, it can activate the hair follicles to promote growth. Micro needling tool is usually in the form of a pen or roller with needles on the surface. You can perform the procedure at home by yourself. However, it is best to avoid doing that as you may make a mistake and hurt yourself. Plus, microneedling might cause slight bleeding, which needs the attention of a trained Esthetician.
The procedure is slightly painful if you perform it without topical anesthesia – and proper care is required after the procedure, as well. So it is essential to go to an experienced dermatologist who will take care of everything from the pre-treatment stage to the post-treatment steps. It takes just about 10-20 minutes to complete a single microneedling treatment.
The procedure starts with smearing numbing cream on the facial or treatment area first. Then, the expert handling the procedure will move the needle-covered tool all over the target area to make small pricks on the surface of the skin. Another healing or vitamin serum will have to be applied to the treated area to soothe your skin and begin the healing process.
As collagen and elastin procedure begins to heal your skin’s micro – wounds, your scars get filled, and the scars get cured. The healing process can also help uneven skin tone, dark spots, sun damage, uneven skin texture, etc. For the next few days, you can expect some minor pain, redness, and even peeling.
Don’t be alarmed because all of this is part of the wear and tear recovery process. The most common application of microneedling is on the face. The end results is a youthful appearance with glowing skin. Every microneedling session will take about 10-20 minutes, but the recovery process will be longer.

Before you book a microneedling procedure at a local Spa, you should know a few things about it. Microneedling treatments yield great results and are cheaper than most laser skin treatments. They can also address a wide range of skin and hair conditions. However, there are a few downsides that you need to be prepared for before you book your appointment.
a) It does not yield immediate results as the treatment triggers the body to heal itself. You may need a few sessions, depending on the treatment area and skin issue.
b) It takes a while for your skin to heal, as the procedure involves puncturing your skin, piercing the epidermal and dermal layers.
c) It can cause pain during and after the procedure. While the pain during the treatment can be avoided by using a numbing agent, post-treatment pain and redness are inevitable.
d) It will lead to peeling and an uncomfortable tightness in the skin during the healing process as the dry skin on the top gets removed, and your skin tightens.

You should consult a licensed dermatologist with any serious skin conditions before turning to microneedling therapy.
