Thanks to Luwam, our facial treatment menu has been extended with advanced facial treatments that go beyond the surface and activate deeper healing and rejuvenation processes. Microneedling facial is one of them.
Here are some of the benefits of microneedling facial treatments
As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Microneedling helps to stimulate collagen production, which in turn plumps up the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment can help to brighten the skin by improving its texture and evenness. The micro-injuries created by the needles encourage the skin to produce new skin cells, which can improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
Microneedling has been shown to be effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars. The tiny punctures created by the needles can help to smooth out irregular skin texture, which in turn reduces the visibility of scars.
Large pores can be a source of frustration for many people. Microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of pores by promoting the growth of new skin cells, which can help to tighten the skin and reduce the size of the pores.
Microneedling can also be used to address hyperpigmentation, which is a common skin condition that causes dark patches on the skin. The stimulation of collagen production can help to even out the skin tone, reducing the appearance of dark spots.
Here are some contraindications for microneedling facial treatments
- Active Acne
If you have active acne, it is best to avoid this facial as the needles may spread the bacteria that causes acne, leading to further breakouts. Wait until the acne has cleared before undergoing microneedling.
If your skin is sunburned, you should wait until it has fully healed before undergoing microneedling. Sunburned skin is more sensitive and prone to injury, which may increase the risk of complications during the procedure.
- Open Wounds
If you have any open wounds or cuts on your face, this facial should be avoided as it may increase the risk of infection.
- Blood Clotting Disorders
If you have a blood clotting disorder or are taking blood-thinning medication, microneedling may increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. Consult with your doctor before undergoing the procedure.
- Skin Conditions
Certain skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea may make you unsuitable for microneedling. If you have any skin conditions, it is best to consult with a dermatologist before undergoing the procedure.
- Pregnancy and Nursing
It is important to note that this list is not exhaustive and that there may be other contraindications for microneedling. Before undergoing the procedure, it is always best to consult with a qualified professional to determine if microneedling is suitable for you.
