Microneedling: Everything You Need to Know 

Microneedling: Everything You Need to Know 

Rewind time with The Hemp Spa’s newest service! Collagen Induction Treatment, also known as microneedling, promotes skin regeneration to treat acne, scars, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and more. 

The word “needle” in the name of the treatment, microneedling, gives it a threatening sound. Although the technique does entail numbing cream, it is actually quite painless and has a number of additional skin-improving benefits! 

In this blog we will explain a basic guide on our CBD infused procedure, including what microneedling entails, how the aftercare works, and, of course, the reason why it is a painless procedure! 

So — What Exactly is Microneedling? 

Microneedling is considered a cosmetic procedure. It involves sticking tiny, sterile needles into the skin. Your body produces more collagen and elastin as a result of the little injuries, which helps your skin repair and makes you appear younger and fresher looking. 

This is a skin rejuvenation technique that works to lessen the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and uneven skin texture. To encourage the development of new collagen and elastin, this treatment injures the skin hundreds of times in a controlled manner. The end effect is skin that is smoother, brighter, and younger-looking.

What Occurs Throughout a Microneedling Procedure? 

Our protocol takes 45-60 minutes. Your skin will first be cleansed with our award winning Remove Foaming Cleanser by ColorUp CBD. To further prep the skin, a numbing cream will be applied to your face that will prevent you from feeling the needle pokes. 

Following the removal of the numbing cream, a 3,000mg CBD Topical Tincture is applied to the face in sections. Next, we produce microscopic wounds with tiny, sterile needles so that your body responds by producing more collagen and elastin, which will heal the wounds and make your complexion look much younger. 

Your esthetician will use a pen-shaped tool with tiny needles to create microscopic channels in the skin from the needles, which may result in some pin-point bleeding. 

Is Microneedling Painful at All? 

We apply a numbing cream prior to starting your treatment to assist lowering the possibility of discomfort. Throughout the procedure, you can still feel pressure or something that feels like itching, but you shouldn’t be in any real pain. 

The more bony parts of your face, such as your jawline, forehead, and hairline, are more likely to feel any discomfort if you do encounter it during your microneedling process.

We advise that you avoid using any skincare items that can cause irritation, such as chemical peels, before treatment to help reduce any potential discomfort. 

What are the Benefits to CBD Infused MicroNeedling? 

Your skin’s look and feel can be enhanced by microneedling. Especially when we add CBD skincare to the mix. Acne scars, wrinkles, pigment and other skin issues can all be reduced by it. 

The science behind CBD to treat skin ailments is astounding. The clinical results we have had makes us pinch ourselves to ensure we aren’t dreaming. The proprietary blend in our Topical Tincture features medical-grade 3,000mg CBD and Organic Hempseed Oil to offer anti-bacterial, sebostatic, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Who Should Try Microneedling? 

Anyone! Regardless of skin tone, microneedling is safe. Skin pigmentation may be a factor

when undergoing procedures like laser hair removal, but not with microneedling. 

How Often Should I Get Microneedling? 

“How frequently should I receive microneedling treatments?” is one of the most frequently requested queries to our estheticians. It’s a typical query that plenty of people want to know the answer to! 

Of course, the answer varies depending on your skin type, age, and the outcomes you desire. So how frequently should you undergo microneedling procedures? For best results, we recommend beginning with three to four treatments separated every two to four weeks. It depends on whether you want to reduce acne scars or lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

What is Included in Microneedling Aftercare? 

Redness is to be expected immediately following your procedure. Most redness will subside within the first 24 hours. For up to four days, your skin could be pink. A cold compress can ease discomfort and inflammation.

The day after your treatment, your skin may feel like you have gotten a mild sunburn in the form of tightness and heat. Makeup application should be avoided for at least 24 hours and direct sunlight for at least a few days while your skin heals. Some clients may experience dry, flaky skin during healing which is improved by using our professional grade CBD skincare.
