As the sun graces us with its warm embrace (or if you’re in Austin, the sun will smother us like a hot, unavoidable hug- IYKYK), it's the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin with procedures that are safer for the bright, summer sun. Our favorite collagen-building procedure that’s safe for summertime but also delivers remarkable results is microneedling.  

What is Microneedling?  

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin's surface. This controlled injury triggers the body's natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin – the building blocks of healthy, youthful skin.  

Why Choose Microneedling for Summer?

One of the key advantages of microneedling is its suitability for all skin types and tones, making it an ideal option for summertime skincare. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures that may pose a risk of increased sensitivity to sunlight, microneedling is safe for use during the sunny season. Additionally, microneedling boasts a quick recovery time, allowing you to get back to your summer activities with minimal downtime. While your skin may experience some redness and mild sensitivity immediately following the procedure, these side effects typically subside within a few days, leaving you with a refreshed, radiant complexion. 

The Benefits of Microneedling

Collagen Stimulation: By stimulating collagen production, microneedling helps improve skin texture. This means reduced appearance of acne scars, fine lines, pores and wrinkles, not to mention promoting overall skin rejuvenation. 

Enhanced Product Absorption: The microchannels created during microneedling allow for better penetration of skincare products, maximizing their effectiveness and delivering deeper hydration and nourishment to the skin. We commonly apply growth factors and regenerative topicals for even more incredible results. 

Reduced Hyperpigmentation: Microneedling can help fade hyperpigmentation and acne scars, revealing a more even-toned complexion. 

Decreased Pore Size: Through the process of skin remodeling, microneedling can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, giving your skin a smoother, more refined texture.
