Microneedling is a new beauty procedure that has everyone talking about it lately. I was a bit confused about what it was myself so I did some research because I’m always eager to try the next thing in skincare. Microneedling is a procedure that uses a derma roller with little tiny stainless steel needles to put holes in your skin. Sounds a bit scary but by creating little tiny holes, the skin naturally sends collagen to repair the little holes on your face. This extra collagen creates brighter, tighter and smoother skin. Right now I see a lot of people adding collagen powder to their coffee and smoothies and this is another natural way to add collagen to your skin.
You can get it done at the dermatologist for a fee or you can pick a microneedle up and do it yourself. You can also purchase a microneedle at Nordstrom so you can do it on your own time and see results within a week.
I was able to pick up a microneedle at Marshalls for under $10 to try before I committed to a more expensive one. I liked what this procedure was supposed to do but I was a bit afraid of the whole needles on my face thing. Best way to describe it is using a face scrub because it’s painless but you do feel a pinch. I’ve been using a microneedle on my face before adding a face serum before bed the last few days. It is said that if you microneedle your face before applying serums and night creams, the ingredients are able to penetrate your skin easier making them work better than before. So far, I am loving my microneedle and it only takes a minute or two to roll at night. After a few weeks, I have noticed that my skin is smoother and firmer.
