You might choose a micro-needling treatment in London to resurface your skin, for speed or effectiveness. Whether your skin has texture to it due to large pores, acne scars, or fine lines, the micro-needling treatment is perfect for you. The combination of product penetration and the wound healing process gets rid of bacteria and stimulates the skin's regeneration process for a fresh start. But on top of that, one of the many beneficial aftereffects of the treatment is that it allows your skin to absorb your topical products (such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C) more deeply. So that your regular skin care treatment feels all the more nourishing.
So what is micro-needling and why are so many people turning to it as an alternative to other treatments?
Benefit from an almost pain-free treatment. Before your micro-needling treatment goes ahead, your face will be gently numbed using a special gel. This gel is allowed to work for up to 30 minutes before your treatment begins. This gives it plenty of time to work. The effect of the gel is to reduce the feel of the treatment to a very mild discomfort indeed.
The slight redness that most people experience after treatment is the only kind of you need to factor in. The redness usually lasts for less than one hour, with a day being usual only if you have very sensitive skin. After a day, you can even resume your usual skincare regime.
Get revitalised afterwards. Once your treatment is finished, a post-micro-needling facial will help you to feel fresh and vital. You will be soothed and your skin will be hydrated, leaving you free to go on about your day.
