Treatment spotlight: Microneedling

Microneedling is hot right now. It’s new, it’s noninvasive, and it works.  You may be wondering “What is microneedling, exactly?” and “Should I do it?”  Let’s talk.

Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses teeny tiny superfine needles to make invisible puncture wounds in the skin’s uppermost layers.  These micro-injuries (as we call them) stimulate the body’s natural healing process, which increases cell turnover as well as natural collagen and elastin production.  So, basically, we use tiny needles to jumpstart your body to produce more collagen and elastin. Cool, right?  Also because this treatment opens up the pores so well, whatever serums we apply to the skin go deep, increasing their potency and effectiveness. Our serums become super-serums.

So, who is microneedling best for?  Everyone. Really, everyone.  But who benefits the most??  We recommend it for acne, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and congested skin.  Microneedling, especially if done routinely (like every month or so), can really reduce, if not eliminate, fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin pigmentation.  Some people experience minor skin irritation (equal to an inflammation or detox), but most people leave Skin by Tatum with no evidence other than amazing, fresh, youthful, and yes, glowing skin.
