Is Micro-needling Safe for Warm Weather?

April 29 2022

Micro-needling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment known as collagen induction therapy or dermarolling. Typically a medspa or dermatology office service, this popular minimally invasive procedure is where fine needles penetrate the skin's surface. These tiny pin-sized holes improve the skin's appearance and feel by prompting the body to produce more collagen and elastin on the affected area, promoting a healing effect on the skin for an overall more youthful look.

What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Micro-Needling?

This popular procedure assists in minimizing lines, smoothing wrinkles, minimizing large pores, evening out pigmentation, tightening elasticity, lightening scars, and fading stretch marks.

Cost-effective, quick, and practically painless, micro-needling typically takes less than 30 minutes, making this service a preferred alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures due to requiring no downtime, perfect for today's busy lives.

With the sun-filled fun-packed summer days ahead, micro-needling is entirely safe for those warm-weather months, unlike more involved cosmetic procedures.

A Quick Overview Of The Micro-Needling Steps.

These are the steps generally followed for the micro-needling procedures. Even though these steps are primarily universal, they might vary slightly according to your technician.

1. The treatment starts with a topical numbing agent to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

2. The technician uses a dermaroller or other preferred device containing tiny "micro" needles on your skin. These needles pierce the skin's surface and activate the body's natural healing process by increasing collagen and blood flow, promoting healing tissue.

3. At this point, some clients opt for the addition of platelet-rich plasma(PRP) created from their blood, called a Vampire Facial, and a second pass of the dermaroller device.

4. After completion, the technician applies a soothing gel to calm the skin and prevent drying.

5. The post-procedure treated area often feels tender, dry, tight, and itchy, appearing a little pink or red. These side-effects typically subside within 24 hours, replaced by a healthy glow. After which, the client returns to their usual skincare regime.
