What Microneedling Can Do for Your Skin in Time for Summer

As the air warms up, your wardrobe starts to shift. During the warm summer months, your skin is more exposed with tank tops, shorts, and swimsuits. The skin that gets the most exposure though is the skin on your face. If you’re dreaming of smoother, more youthful skin this summer, treat yourself to a microneedling session.

New to microneedling? No worries! Registered nurse and medical esthetics specialist Kelly Jelic of Faces by Kelly uses microneedling to give you the summer glow you want.

Kelly shares the advantages of microneedling and what it can do for your skin this summer.

What can microneedling do for you?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure in which very tiny microchannels are created in your top layer of skin – the epidermis. You’ll remain comfortable throughout the procedure thanks to a topical numbing cream.

Microneedling can prepare your skin for summer by:

Stimulating new skin growth

The tiny “micro injuries” stimulate your skin to produce more collagen and elastin. Collagen is what gives your skin strength, and elastin provides elasticity, leading to more youthful-looking skin. New skin growth that results from microneedling can even help with reducing the appearance of acne scars, injury or burn scars, and stretch marks.

Working with your busy schedule

Even if your schedule is packed, you can still find time for a microneedling session. The sessions themselves are quick, which means it’s easy to sneak a session into your busy schedule. 

The downtime after microneedling is minimal as well. You might see a bit of redness that fades after a day or two. Unlike more complicated treatments – such as a chemical peel – you won’t need to spend weeks pampering your skin.

Note that you may require a few sessions depending on your specific skin concerns.

Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Because microneedling encourages collagen production, it’s a popular treatment among men and women who want to see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Over the course of the summer, you’ll notice that your skin continues to improve.

Tip: You can maximize your results by continuing to protect your skin in the summer. Wear sunscreen daily and try to avoid sun exposure during the peak UV hours.
