When I first heard of microneedling, an image of bloody Kim Kardashian’s face came to mind. I was worried this procedure would hurt and I would leave looking scary, but how could I get Kim’s gorgeous skin? This treatment has quickly become one of my favorites here at The Laser Image Company.
It is an all inclusive treatment that targets most skin care concerns such as: fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, tone & texture and collagen loss over time. It effectively can treat stretch marks, acne scars, as well as help prevent hair loss to active hair follicles.
Now in my 30s, I have begun to look into anti-aging treatments. As we approach 25 our collagen production slows down and begins to break down causing unwanted signs of aging. Microneedling can help slow down the process and increase collagen and elastin production.
After learning of all of it’s benefits, I was eager to try this treatment. Much to my surprise the process did not hurt. The nurse applied numbing cream and once she begins the treatment you do not feel a thing. Over the next couple days, my skin appeared pink and warm, as if I had gotten a lot of sun, but NOT bloody like the picture most commonly shown of Kim Kardashian post Microneedling. Over the next week, I kept my skin well moisturized and saw positive changes as early 2-3 weeks after the treatment.
