After a summer of sun exposure, autumn provides the optimal conditions for your skin to replenish itself. Now is the perfect opportunity to book a collagen-boosting Advanced Microneedling Facial, which delivers instant plumpness but requires some downtime. Read on for the full list of microneedling benefits and what to expect from this transformational treatment.
Benefits of microneedling
Microneedling involves the use of a needling device to create controlled skin injury, which triggers your skin to repair itself, increasing its production of collagen and elastin, resulting in visibly smoother, firmer skin. At The Light Salon, we combine microneedling with Calecim growth factors to supercharge the recovery time and benefits, which include:
- Reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Increase in skin firmness and elasticity
- Reduction of enlarged pores
- Improvement in overall skin tone and texture
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation
Why try it now?
Between the heat and humidity of summer and the harshness of winter, autumn’s more forgiving climate makes it easier for your skin to heal and recover post-procedure; microneedling requires 48 hours of downtime, and you’ll feel a sensation similar to sunburn after your treatment. Beginning a course of treatments now also means your complexion will be prepped for the party season ahead. Our Advanced Microneedling Facial combines stem-cell microneedling with skin-smoothing nano-dermabrasion, a plumping hydrogel mask and advanced LED to enhance collagen production and soothe the skin.
Boost your downtime
Industry experts are now recognising LED as an essential add-on to microneedling, because it not only boosts collagen between invasive treatments but speeds up your skin’s recovery time from them due to its anti-inflammatory properties. We include LED in all of our microneedling treatments and recommend Boost wearable LED to support recovery at home.
Microneedling for hair
If you’re looking to improve hair density and prevent hair thinning, microneedling can support you here too. When combined with growth factors, our Advanced Microneedling Hair Treatment works by suppressing the inflammation and hormonal cues that trigger follicle cells to die, and stimulating follicle cell growth and hair follicle development, resulting in a reduction in hair breakage and loss.
