Your Microneedling Guide to Glowing Skin this Summer!  

It’s the Summer of Microneedling here at Skin CoLAB and we are happy to take a quick dive into all that this hero treatment has to offer.  

In the quest for youthful, radiant skin, microneedling might just be your next treatment at Skin CoLAB. This minimally invasive procedure is known for its skin-rejuvenating benefits. Best of all it can be done any time of the year!  

What is Microneedling? 

This collagen building treatment involves pricking the skin with tiny, sterile needles via the FDA approved Skin Pen device at Skin CoLAB.  The precise micro-injuries produced by the treatment stimulate the skin's natural healing process, promoting the production of collagen and elastin—proteins essential for youthful, firm skin. This is great for individuals who would like to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, and those seeking smoother, more even skin. BONUS: Microneedling also enhances product absorption. Post-treatment, your skin is more receptive to skincare products, allowing for better absorption and effectiveness of serums and creams.  


Microneedling is a great alternative to laser in the summer as it reduces hyperpigmentation by helping to fade dark spots and pigmentation, giving you a more uniform complexion. This non-invasive treatment with minimal downtime is a must!  


The SCL Microneedling Treatment Step by Step:

1. Preparation: On the day of the procedure, your skin will be double cleansed and with medical grade preparation product. A topical numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment. 

2. Microneedling Begins! Your provider will use the FDA Approved SkinPen Microneedling device which creates tiny punctures in the skin creating micro-injuries. These are strategically placed to trigger the body's natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. 

3.Post-Treatment: After the procedure, a soothing mask is applied to calm the skin. Redness and slight swelling, like mild sunburn, is common after treatment and typically subsides within a few days.  Your SCL provider will equip you with the product and post treatment tips needed to keep you confident and comfortable during your recovery. 


SCL Top Aftercare Tips for Optimal Results: 


  • Keep It Clean: Use a gentle cleanser to keep your skin clean and avoid any potential infections. Steer clear of harsh exfoliants or active ingredients like retinoids for at least a week post-treatment. 


  • Hydrate and Nourish: Keep your skin hydrated with a gentle, hydrating moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid serums like Alastin’s HA Immerse can be particularly beneficial in maintaining skin hydration. 


  • Hands Off: Refrain from touching your face unnecessarily to prevent bacteria from causing breakouts or infections. 


  • Follow-Up Treatments: 3 is key! SCL has found that multiple, typically 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is ideal to help achieve your desired smooth skin outcome. Check out the Skin CoLAB Microneedling bundle here!
