Microneedling Facial

What is a microneedling facial?

A microneedling facial is a facial treatment that includes a session of microneedling. Microneedling, also called ‘medical needling’, involves using either a small roller covered in tiny sharp spikes, or a pen-type device tipped with a grid of tiny sharp needles, to punch thousands of very small holes in the skin.

Perforating your hide like this might sound like a terrible idea, but there are a couple of compelling reasons for doing it. The first reason applies to microneedling facials, while the second applies to hardcore microneedling.

Here’s the first reason: making holes through the tough protective outer cells of the epidermis means that any skincare product that you slap on immediately afterwards can get direct access into the skin – so if that’s a high-tech serum with skin-repairing benefits, it will be more effective.

The second reason has to do with collagen, the protein that gives our skin its structure and firmness and that forms the scaffolding of the skin. If the needling is done with long enough needles, it can stimulate a wound-healing response in the skin which floods the skin with growth factors and prompts the skin to create collagen, thus renewing and firming the skin. Scroll down for all the FAQs about microneedling facials.
