Summer is not the season you want to be slathering on makeup to hide blotchy skin, dullness, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, or visible scarring. When you picture the epitome of a sexy, summertime look, you’re probably envisioning flawless, glowing skin that’s impossibly smooth, youthful, and healthy… but that’s unrealistic, right?
You can be that beautiful babe (or handsome hunk) this summer, perfect skin and all. And it’s all thanks to one of the beauty industry’s most talked-about skincare treatments: microneedling.
If you haven’t already made microneedling a staple of your skincare routine, now’s the time.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a professional skincare treatment that uses a specialized, pen-style device that contains several minuscule sterile needles. As the pen passes over your skin, the tiny needles produce microscopic channels (“micro-injuries”) on the surface of your skin. Your body responds by activating its natural repair process, kicking collagen and elastin production into high gear. Plus, your skin is primed and ready to absorb high-quality serums even better than before – so it’s a win-win.
Because the needles are so small, the treatment is painless. And if you’re afraid of needles, have no fear because you won’t even see them built into the interior of the pen device.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling has quickly earned a reputation as the skincare treatment that can do it all. Odds are, just about every celebrity and beauty influencer you would consider “#skincaregoals” has a routine of microneedling treatments – that’s just how good it is.
There’s a long list of microneedling benefits to look forward to post-treatment, including:
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Improved skin elasticity
- Glowing skin
- Faded scarring, including acne scars, stretch marks, and burns
- Smaller pores
- Decreased hyperpigmentation
- Improvements in volume and texture
- Better absorption of skincare products for enhanced results
- Smoother makeup application
Because microneedling stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, your results are only going to get better over time.
Why microneedling is about to become your best summer beauty secret
So, what makes summer the perfect time to try microneedling? As if having a supermodel-worthy complexion isn’t enough, here are just a few of the reasons to get microneedling now:
- No more heavy makeup that melts off during hot summer days or washes off in the pool
- The confidence to rock fresh, makeup-free skin whenever you want
- An all-natural, post-vacation glow that lasts all summer long
Microneedling at Home vs. Professional Treatments
There’s been a new beauty “tool” sweeping social media, and it’s promising to deliver professional-quality results at home for about $20: the derma roller. If that sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is.
Microneedling treatments in a professional environment combine advanced equipment with the provider’s skill and technique, resulting in beautiful results and healthier, happier skin. But when it comes to dermarolling, the best-case scenario is ending up with subpar or non-existent improvements in your skin. What’s the worst-case scenario, you ask? Skin that’s stressed, sore, and potentially left with scarring and possible infection.
Is Microneedling Right for Me?
Few professional skincare treatments have the versatility of microneedling, especially when it comes to determining who is a good candidate. But if you’re wondering who microneedling is best for, you’re going to like the answer: it’s a great match for just about anyone who wants gorgeously glowing skin!
Do you want to improve your skin’s overall appearance and texture while simultaneously activating your body’s natural “fountain of youth” with increased elastin and collagen production? We’re guessing your answer was an instant “yes,” – which means that microneedling can be the treatment of your dreams.
Since microneedling is a non-invasive treatment, it’s a safe option for almost every guest at Focal Point. If you still aren’t sure, schedule a consultation to meet with one of our skincare experts for answers to all your questions.
