How is needling your face a GOOD THING! What are the benefits of skin needling?

Updated: Jun 15

When you first hear about skin needling, you might imagine a scene straight out of a horror movie: thousands of massive needles puncturing the skin, a nightmare of pain and discomfort. But let's dial down the drama and set the record straight—it's really not what you think! Let's talk about the benefits of skin needling.

First off, if we're talking pain levels, skin needling is more like a mild annoyance, clocking in at a 3 out of 10. Ever endured laser hair removal? It's about on par with that. There's a bit of discomfort, sure, but it's fleeting and, frankly, a small price to pay for the benefits.

But why submit to the needle in the first place?

If you have concerns with acne, open pores, scarring, uneven texture, fine lines and wrinkles and skin laxity a series of skin needling treatments will provide amazing results!   

So how does it work? 

Imagine you've got a cut on your skin. Your body kicks into high gear, rushing blood to the scene with a cargo of oxygen and nutrients, all primed for repair. White blood cells swoop in like tiny warriors to fend off invaders and clear away the debris. Then comes the rebuilding phase: new blood vessels form, and growth factors whip up a frenzy of cellular activity, producing collagen and elastin to mend the damage.

Skin needling takes this natural healing process and puts it to work for us. By creating tiny "wounds," it prompts your skin to up its game:

  • Strengthening Capillary Networks: More blood supply means more oxygen and nutrients for your skin cells.

  • Increasing Cellular Turnover: This means smoother, clearer, and brighter skin.

  • Boosting Collagen and Elastin Production: Hello, firmer, lifted, and plump skin.

  • Releasing Growth Factors: Think of these as the skin's quality control, ensuring everything's working as it should, and stepping in to rejuvenate when it's not.

So, in a nutshell, skin needling is like a pep talk for your skin at the cellular level, encouraging it to rejuvenate and renew. Far from a medieval torture device, it's a science-backed pathway to healthier, more vibrant skin.
