Needle your way to glowing skin

how to get rid of dark skin spots

What comes to mind when you think of microneedling? Some say acupuncture of the face or the Kardashians. My answer? Minimal downtime with major results. As a medical aesthetician for almost 12 years, I have worked with all kinds of treatments from chemical peels to lasers to now microneedling. I believe in a synergistic approach, with a combination of treatments and skincare.

Over the years I’ve had many patients come to me with concerns about skin texture (pore size, texture from past breakouts, etc.) and while I’ve seen improvement, I still felt there was room for much more without undergoing a major treatment such as CO2 or fractional resurfacing.

Enter microneedling. It’s been around for over a decade but has just recently gained major exposure as celebrities (Kardashians, Real Housewives, etc.) and influencers post their before and after images, videos of the treatment itself, and so on.

Is microneedling worth the hype? I think it is. I noticed diminished crow’s feet, a major reduction in the way my pores looked as well as a glowing complexion that lasted after my first microneedling treatment. I’ve had patients call and text with excitement regarding their microneedling results after just one treatment.

So, if one treatment can offer a glowing complexion and reduction in the appearance of pore size, what can multiple treatments provide? A major improvement in skin texture after breakouts, a minor improvement in discoloration, some big changes when it comes to fine lines and potentially wrinkles.
