Summer is a time for shorts, swimwear, tans, and glowing, radiant skin. The last thing you want is to get stuck inside because you’re uncomfortable or self-conscious about how your skin looks. So, if you want to flaunt smoother and more youthful-looking skin this summer, microneedling could be your new summer skin care secret. But is it safe to undergo this procedure in the summer? Yes! With the right precautions and protection, summer is one of the best times to receive this treatment.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that promotes cellular regeneration. We use a cutting-edge device called the Innopen™ to create hundreds of micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These tiny punctures will trigger the body’s natural healing response by stimulating a burst of collagen and elastin production — two proteins that are essential for healthy, smooth skin. When these proteins are active, the results are plumper, firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
Why Have Microneedling in the Summer?
The bright sunlight tends to put our imperfections on full display. Also, sunscreen, sweat, and oil production can all lead to acne flare-ups, and for many people, that can lead to stubborn scarring and discomfort. Microneedling can help curb acne breakouts, shrink enlarged pores that are creating excessive oil, and help reduce signs of past sun damage. It will also help exfoliate dead skin cells to revitalize your skin, leaving it glowing and baby-smooth.
In addition, your provider can complete this treatment in 30 minutes or less. You can easily squeeze a session in without missing a beat. The process will stimulate collagen production and leave you with smoother, clearer, and glowing skin.
How to Protect Your Skin After Microneedling
Microneedling works by causing superficial injuries to the top layer of skin, making it sensitive and susceptible to sun damage. So, while you can still rock your glowing, smooth new complexion, it’s crucial to protect your investment as well. You can do this by:
- Wearing an SPF of 30 or higher on the face and reapplying every two hours
- Accessorize with a stylish hat
- Avoid direct sunlight during peak hours of the day: noon to 4 p.m.
- Keep your skin moisturized
- Do not pick or peel at your skin during its recovery period
