Going under the microneedle: What you need to know
Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), or most recently, microchanneling, gives your skincare an edge that is a cut above traditional methods when it comes to cosmetic treatments. It works by gently piercing the skin, using very small needles, designed to precisely cause micro-injuries to the skin, which puts your body into repair mode. Thus, increasing the production of collagen and elastin - the duo responsible for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of our skin.
Safe and efficient, when done correctly using the right tools, can be performed at home. Here at (Re)SET, we've designed: THE HIGH ROLLER and THE NANO. These beauty tools are safe and easy to use at home, and when paired with any of our treatment SETs, can give you even greater results.
You might be wondering: why should I let little needles prick my skin to get results? Isn’t it painful and unnecessary? And what are the benefits?
Truth be told, there are loads of perks associated with at-home micro-needling treatments. Have a look below at how your skin will benefit from its skin-boosting benefits.
Micro-needling is a collagen-boosting fix for skin
With each birthday, our skin produces a little less collagen than usual, which means our skin loses elasticity and some of its strength to remain firm. By stimulating collagen production from the outside, through micro-needling, your skin will benefit from the new collagen that is produced and cellular renewal, which is scientifically proven for treating scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and even hyperpigmentation!
It is minimally invasive
Although there are needles involved, micro-needling is not a skin pricking nightmare at all! At the most, you will feel a gentle pin-prick sensation as you gently glide your rollers across your skin.
When used with serums, it packs a skincare knockout
Micro-needling also prepares your skin to absorb skincare products more efficiently, especially a treatment is a serum. Combining these two skincare aids will allow your skin to reset, renew, and restore its natural beauty!
To maximize and maintain your results, you will want to start with a micro-needling session once a week (if your needles are 0.25mm or less) and build up to three times per week. If your needles are 0.5mm (the longest recommended for at-home treatments), you might want to use your roller once a week to once every other week. Remember, you need to allow your skin time to heal and rebuild!
You can get this spa-like treatment in the comfort of your home!
As we mentioned, using a micro-needling derma roller at home is super easy when you follow instructions, and our 24-k gold roller developed to work synergisticlally with our treatments to give you the most transformative results!
When using the micro-needling tools, start with disinfecting your roller, then wash your face and dry before you start rolling. Taking care to avoid the delicate eye area, you can gently roll your toll over each quarter of your face, neck, and decolletage according to your tool’s instructions. Follow with your chosen treatment serum. When you are done, if needed, you may to use a calming mask. We like doing our CIT (collagen Induction Therapy) in the evening before going to bed to give our skin ample time to fully recover and rebuild while we sleep.
With discipline, you will get the results you need
If you are keen to start your micro-needling derma rolling treatments, you must be 100% committed. Although you will start seeing results after only a couple of sessions, you need to stick to your treatments to get the most bang for your buck results. Which is not all that difficult when you see how your skin improves every week!
