Why Skin Needling Is Brilliant?

Why Skin Needling Is Brilliant?

Ageing gracefully is a huge highlight on my goals list as maturity sets.  Having just celebrated my 50th birthday, I want to look my best still, well maybe 30 at 50, but I want to spend the money on natural procedures, rather than injecting my face with fillers.

Last week I attended my second session of skin needling at Evoke Medispa, by owner & skin specialist Narelle.

Needling is not for the faint-hearted.  It does hurt, but I am someone who dislikes pain immensely, so if I can do it, so can you.  Please don't expect a lovely and relaxing facial.

With needling, there is some pain involved during the appointment, and you need to be prepared to have red skin afterwards, which can be a touch swollen.  Also, your skin is healing itself during the next week, so it won't look it's best, and you can experience dry and flaky areas of your skin surface.

 Skin needling damages your skin so it works hard to produce new and fresher skin, naturally.

So, what made me come back?

The benefits of skin needling far outweigh the pain.  Although I love my facials and skin care, I wanted to try something different.  Remember in the article about DMK I wrote how the skin works with disharmony and needs to be damaged for it to repair itself naturally?

Needling minimises lines and wrinkles, reduces pore size and improves skin texture, aids penetration of active ingredients, scar revision, breaks down pigment and typically allows more blood flow to the skin surface.  It is suitable for all skin types, requires no downtime, and there is zero risk of burning or scarring and increases your natural collagen formation.  Huge tick for ageing skin.

The Derma CIT Pen (Collagen Induction Therapy) provides targeted precision. The speed of the pen sits at around 8500 rpm. The pen has been designed using the most precise fine needles to stimulate the production of your natural collagen.  Targeted use of medical grade stainless steel needles instigates a wound healing response.  The healing response allows topical nutrients to be more readily absorbed into the skin, encouraging production of collagen and elastin without the risk of invasive techniques that can damage the epidermis. 

After the treatment, your skin may be red, and a bit stingy, like sunburn, but will go after a day or so.  Avoid excessive exercise the day after as the skin will be sensitive and SPF needs to be applied daily.  Around day 4 or 5 the skin will start to become flaky and dry, the perfect time to do a "lift off'' procedure facial to remove the damaged skin. 

After my lift off, especially after the second session is when I noticed a huge difference in my skin.  Even though I look after my skin and have regular facials, I was blown away by the results to my skin.  Makes turning 50 a touch more pleasurable!

For the best results, sessions of needling are advised to be 3 - 6 weeks apart, but with each being six weeks apart for optimal results!

I have already booked in for my next session because 50 is the new 30!

Needling is $300 per session, if bought in a package of 3 the last one is half price, so the total of $750.00.
