The results are in……I absolutely see a major difference after one session of micro-needling!!! First, I have to admit, no-pain-no-gain. This procedure hurts well after the one hour session. I looked and felt like a I had a really bad sunburn.
Here is how it went:
- The esthetician reviewed the various infusing serums they pair with the treatment. I chose the basic serum that came with the package at no extra cost.
- Step one- Deep clean -ahhhh nice and refreshing
- Next- Needling (ouch!!)
- Last-Cold metal compress and serum to relieve burning.
Below are my before and after pictures. The after pictures were taken on my way to an event five hours after the procedure. My husband could not believe how tight and smooth my skin looked. I did have mild redness and a minor burning feeling in some areas. As the night went on my symptoms dissipated. Today, is day two and I am excited to report that my skin still looks fabulous!
In conclusion, the pain was worth it. I highly recommend this procedure-especially if you have acne scarring. The esthetician recommend a laser treatment for my next visit, promising instant results with no pain or uncomfortable down time. As I said in my earlier post, I am hesitant to use a laser because of the scary side effects. Until I do more research, I will stick to the needling.
