Industry Pros Help Us Explain Benefits of Microneedling
For years, I’ve seen microneedling and have heard estheticians rave about the benefits of microneedling. I’ve seen the before and after images where expertly trained skin care pros can get amazing results. Truly remarkable images that show improvement in skin that had acne scars, fine lines, dark spots and scars.
I mean, – LEGIT – impressed with the results. So much so that a friend of mine had Abdominoplasty and I suggested that he see an esthetician to have microneedling on the scar to help minimize the appearance of the scar. I wanted him to be able to be back in a speedo in no time! The results of microneedling can be, “SHAMAZING…” (THANKS JVN)
It’s almost counter intuitive, having to stick tiny needles in your skin, which, in the short-term make it look bad, so that in the long run it will look better. You don’t want to believe that something that severe can be so beneficial. I wanted to know why this treatment has so many benefits, so I reached out to a few industry professionals that I respect who know a lot about microneedling and asked them to weigh in!
2 Key Benefits Of Microneedling
Instigates Collagen + Elastin Production
Skin Needling, is a skin rejuvenation procedure that instigates collagen and elastin production in the skin via the body’s own wound healing process. It can be used to plump up depressed areas such as acne scars and fine lines and deep wrinkles, for relaxing contractured scar tissue, restoring pigment to hypopigmented areas as well as smoothing out skin texture.
Improved Product Absorption
Cosmetic needling allows for 80% more product absorption than products alone. This is the perfect time to apply essential nutrients like Vitamins A, C, and E. There are several clinical studies showing the effectiveness of microneedling at various depths prior to the application of topical agents. Cosmetic needling has shown great improvement in the skin and will continue to grow into a popular at-home treatment for clients.
Think of it like aerating a lawn before putting fertilizer on it. This same concept can be used to deliver beneficial ingredients into the skin. Our epidermis is made up of tightly compacted cells that work as a barrier; this makes it difficult for us to get product into the skin. Cosmetic rollers, under .3mm depth, can be used by clients on a nightly basis to make microscopic channels in the skin allowing for beneficial ingredients to be delivered.
Nano channeling or nano infusion, also known as nano needling is “no-needle” less aggressive form of microneedling. This is used to infuse product into the skin.
Combinations Improve Benefits of Microneedling
You can offer your clients the benefits of microneedling or nano channeling during a treatment. However, those benefits can be dramatically improved when you combine microneedling or nano channeling with cosmeceuticals. You can infuse product into the skin and you can recommend product for home care. Home care can truly enhance the benefits of microneedling or nano channeling treatments that you provide.
What Products Should You Combine? Recommend?
Deciding what products to infuse during treatment can be a concern. Also, what products work best for home care to accentuate the benefits of microneedling or nano channeling treatments? It can be hard to know if products will have the maximum benefit. It’s also a concern that a product will have an ingredient that is contra indicated.
