Stick a Needle in your Skin, it Works!

Bumps, wrinkles, and hyper pigmentation are just a few of the most common skin care concerns. Skin care brands are making a ton of money by creating products dedicated to solving these issues but even with these products the same concerns are still relevant. If you suffer from any of these common skin care concerns you should add the needling technique to your routine. Needling may give your skin the boost it needs to  finally banish pesky concerns.

So what is needling you ask?

Needling is a technique used to help the skin build more collagen. Collagen is a protein found in the dermal or bottom layer of the skin. Collagen is responsible for giving the skin strength to repair itself. With that said an increase in collagen can solve a plethora of concerns including:

  • Surgery scars
  • Acne scars
  • Stretchmarks
  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Sagging skin

Needling is painless, the needles have an extremely small diameter and the longest needle used for this technique is only 3 millimeters long. The needles are set up on a roller making it easier to glide across the face. As the needles glide they make small “injuries” in the skin. When the skin is injured it will begin to produce collagen which aids in would healing. Since the wounds from the needling ritual are so tiny they do not cause visible abrasions so the collagen is being produced to solely benefit your skin.

Needling is safe for all skin types including ethnic (prone to scaring) and sensitive skin. Those with acne or herpes should avoid needling, if the skin is broken you could further spread bacteria. The number of procedures one needs to endure will depend on the severity of the concern.
