We’re always on the lookout for the latest innovations here at Trifecta Med Spa. One of the most popular reasons people come to us is because they want to stop the effects of ageing, and want to look younger for longer. And why not?!
Our busy lives take their toll on many areas of our lives, and that includes our appearance. You don’t have to live with not loving what you see in the mirror, and if you’re starting to become fixated on the development of lines or wrinkles, then why shouldn’t you do something about it, if you really want to?
We know there are countless different treatment options, including the ever-popular Botox, but have you heard about the new kid on the block - microneedling?
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling isn’t just about reducing the signs of ageing, as it can be used for a variety of other different conditions too, such as improving the texture and tone of the skin, helping with stretch marks and scars, as well as reducing any signs of pigmentation too. This is a very versatile treatment!
If you’re keen on looking younger overall however, microneedling can be used to reduce the appearance of those annoying fine lines and wrinkles, which leaves behind a softer, younger-looking canvas.
Now, the word ‘needling’ might have you thinking ‘ouch, that sounds painful’, but the good news is that it’s really not as bad as it sounds! The procedure involves a device which punctures the skin in tiny, tiny amounts, hence the precursor ‘micro’. You don’t come away with holes in your skin, and you can’t even see where the puncture marks are! As a result, the procedure isn’t painful, but you may feel a slight sensation where the treatment is taking place. We’re not going to say you’re not going to feel anything, but it’s nothing like a tattoo, or even a bikini wax!
How do These Needles Help My Fine Lines?
Good question! The theory behind the treatment is actually really clever. These puncture marks trick the body into thinking it needs to heal an area, because there is an injury. As a result, your body kick-starts its natural wound healing mechanisms, which involves producing new elastin and collagen. If you know anything about skin and staying young, you’ll know that these two things are vital!
All of this works to reduce those lines and wrinkles, and leave behind a more glowing, even skin tone, without any visible signs of ageing. Of course, you’ll need to have a series of treatments to get the optimum results that you want, and all of that will be discussed with you at your consultation appointment, and a treatment plan drawn up, based on your individual needs.
If you’re scared of needles, microneedling shouldn’t be something to avoid. You will not see a huge needle, and these are so tiny you won’t even know they’re there! All you need to do is lay down and relax, and wait for your body’s natural healing methods to kick in.
