The winter holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to share your “ugly sweater” with family, friends, and colleagues at seasonal parties, to go shopping for presents in crowded stores, or to brave the cold in order to get a picture-perfect tree. But when you’re done having fun, there’s also some downtime when you’ll want to make sure you treat yourself a little this holiday season, too.
Some treatment experts recommend turning that downtime into something more productive by using microneedling devices during this slow period of the year. Microneedling helps increase collagen production which results in the plumping of fine lines and wrinkles.
Combined with nourishing ingredients like vitamin C, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, and peptides, microneedling is also an excellent way to get rid of dull, dry skin this time of year. So, you get brighter, more youthful skin, right before having to spend time catching up with distant family? What could be better!
Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin which trigger the body’s natural healing process. The injuries cause the formation of new tissue, collagen, and elastin, which makes skin look smoother and more radiant. Increased collagen production also results in the plumping of fine lines and wrinkles often seen with sun damage or aging.
The latest microneedling devices use both vacuum pressure and rolling action to produce improved results than manual devices, such as Derma Rollers, which require users to do all the work.
Many microneedling devices are great for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. While it can be used on the face and body, some dermatologists recommend not using a device with a roller head smaller than.5mm on areas of sun damage or photodamage because it could potentially lead to hyper-pigmentation.
