Micro-Needling: The Basics

Micro-Needling: The Basics

Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny needles. The idea behind the treatment is to stimulate the skin's natural healing process, which in turn can lead to the production of collagen and elastin, the two proteins that give our skin its elasticity and firmness. As a result, micro-needling can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other types of scarring.

How Micro-Needling Works

During a micro-needling treatment, a device called a professional handheld device is used to make hundreds of tiny punctures in the skin. The needles on the device can be adjusted to different lengths depending on the area being treated and the desired outcome. 

After the treatment, the skin's natural healing process is triggered, which leads to the production of collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin fibers then begin to fill in, resulting in an overall improvement in the skin's texture and tone.

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. It can also be used to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin and to promote the penetration of skincare products.

One of the benefits of micro-needling is that it is a relatively non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime. There may be some pinkness/redness immediately after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours.

The number of treatments required can vary depending on the individual's skin condition, and it's important to consult with a Temptress skincare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. Temptress recommends 4 sessions, which is why we created this bundle deal for clients.

Overall, micro-needling is a safe and effective procedure that can be used to improve the overall appearance of the skin. As always, it's important to consult with a Temptress skincare professional to ensure that this treatment is the right one for you.
