If you are the type of person that does not value skin care then be prepared to not look your age as you travel forward in time. Fortunately, from a young age I was taught to take care of my skin and make it a habit. Now that I am aging it seems like the maintenance does not become easier or less time consuming, but nonetheless, worth it! I want to share with you one of my absolute favorite skin care treatments that you should be investing in at least every 12 weeks (at the very LEAST). The reason it is one of my favorite treatments is because you end up with really great results, but with little down time, meaning you don’t have to hide under a rock for the next week after you have it done . Ready for it???? Microneedling! (Also, if you are a Dallasite then be sure to check out the video at the bottom to learn more about my favorite medical spa in Dallas!

Microneedling is essentially a pen with very tiny needles on the tip that stimulate the skin in order to help in the production of collagen and also helps to smooth your skin. Let me walk you through the process….
When you first come in for your treatment, your technician washes your face, then applies numbing cream. Believe me, without it, it would hurt pret-ty bad. After about 20-30 minutes, and once your face is numb the technician washes off the numbing cream, dries your skin and then you are ready to go.
Your technician will turn on the pen and apply serum to your face, as it should not be performed on completely dry skin. You should not feel pain, maybe slight discomfort, but on a scale of 1-10 something in the range of 1-3. The worst part is your nose, it feels rather strange when the device passes over that part of your face….kind of tingles a bit…. Your technician can customize the settings although don’t worry if your skin looks red, irritated, swollen and a little bloody after your treatment, that only means you will have even better results. Typically the irritation only lasts for a couple of hours.
The results give you smoother more vibrant skin! I love it!
