John shares his journey to clear up his acne scarring with a microneedling procedure.
January 14, 2020
I am really excited to see my results from my treatment because I've been struggling for a long time with these older kind of chicken pox scars.
And I also have some active acne break outs like what's going on here in my forehead.
And...I've heard really great things about the treatment and hoping I could see some results that way. In terms of preparation for the treatment
I didn't really change my routine at all.
Just doing my basic day least and care topical products like cleanser and a moisturizer at night and in the daytime and also sunscreen.
So John, do you have anything on your skin at the moment, or is it a really clean?
So I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take some topical numbing, and I'm gonna numb your skin.
Wouldn't let it on there for about 30 minutes.
Let it sit for about 30 minutes.
How's that feel?
So what this is doing is creating micro injuries into the Skin around all those micro Angelina injuries.
It's stimulating the collagen, but it's also helping to introduce the collegen into the skin.
I'm really excited to try out this treatment because I'm a huge skincare fan, so I'm always open to trying out a new and exciting treatments.
And I've heard really good things about this, not only from my doctor dermatologist, but also my friends who have tried it in the past.
I would recommend for somebody who maybe is doing it for the first time and isn't sure how their skin would respond to try and do it on a day where you don't have to have any commitments than next day early.
That way, if there's any chance of reaction or anything unusual for someone with sensitive skin, they have a little bit of buffer time.
For about three days, it felt kind of like sandpaper while it was healing
And then all of that skin kind of exfoliated off.
And then I had a fresh layer of new skin that felt a little bit more luminous and smooth, and I definitely noticed a difference.
After even just one treatment, the technician who performed treatment recommended about one treatment every four weeks in a series of three, so I plan to have won again any day now.
