Should you be puncturing tiny needles into your skin? Here’s why you should try it.

Micro-needling went from being a beauty fad to the go-to ultra-modern beauty tool from the instance it was reintroduced to the skincare world in recent years. We look at how micro-needle therapy unveils the flawless skin within by accelerating cell renewal and regeneration through the lenses of The Face Inc Micro-Needle Therapy (RM 228 for 1 Micro Needle Derma Roller with 540 pins sized 0.2mm)

What is it?

Each micro-needle therapy is different and it may be paired with other facial treatments such as with a laser or radiofrequency. The Face Inc Micro-Needle therapy comes with a mini derma-roller fixture with 540 titanium needles attached to a bottle of colourless, viscous serum that’ll efficiently penetrate and be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. 

The benefits

The piercing of the skin to create ‘micro channels’ not only prompts the skin to produce collagen and elastin, but allows the efficient absorption of whatever product that you will apply after. Some advantages of micro-needling include reduction in the appearance of acne scars and discolouration, reduce signs of ageing and improve skin tone, texture, redness and hyperpigmentation. 

Preparation Before Procedure

Avoid using any intense topical treatments such as products containing retinol a few days before going for a treatment. It would also be wise not to aggravate the skin with any harsh exfoliating products and to keep the skin dry and clean before the procedure.

Low Pain Therapy

Before the treatment, your skin would likely be lathered with numbing cream for a few minutes so that the needles would be tolerable – however, it’s best to have in mind that each person’s permissibility to pain differs and you may not experience any discomfort at all!

Side Effects

Of course, when the skin is wounded, you’d experience minor bleedings or redness but don’t be alarmed as this would go away within just a few days. If you experience any itchiness from the imprint marks, slather on a skin-calming, moisturising cream and avoid makeup for the time being – instead, focus on your skincare routine because when the pores are open and exposed, the skin will efficiently be taking in the products applied.
