Let’s get right down to it…all of us want youthful, radiant skin, don’t we?
Well, one of the little known facts about our skin is that, as we age, we begin to lose collagen and elastin (which is exactly what keeps us bright and tight). While this may cause some initial stress for those hoping to look like they are 20 forever, I’m here to tell you that there is a pain-free, cost-effective way to maintain radiance for years to come — and this comes in the form of a treatment called nano-needling.
I’ve never heard of nano-needling before. What is it?
Nano-needling is a pain-free treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural collagen and elastin cells, while also infusing active ingredients for your particular skin concerns into the upper layers of the epidermis. We love that this treatment offers a much higher degree of product absorption, while also working on those skin cells to keep you looking young and fresh! This treatment is great for *almost* anyone who is looking for a pain-free and effective way to reduce fine lines, diminish acne scars, minimize pore visibility and improve the overall tone and texture of their skin.
This sounds a lot like microneedling. Are they the same thing?
Not quite. While microneedling and nano needling address very similar skin concerns, the main difference is the depth at which each service is performed on your skin. Nano-needling only penetrates the first layer of skin, while microneedling goes deeper to tackle serious scarring, aging or pigmentation concerns (and thus, requires a numbing agent to ensure you can enjoy your service!).
Due to the depth of penetration and numbing agent required for the service, microneedling does have a downtime and includes a few more guidelines about who the service is best for. With nano-needling, there is no pain, no downtime, and no redness or swelling post-treatment!
