Nano needling, much like microneedling, aims to improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin. However, the key difference lies in the depth and method of needle penetration. Nano needling uses the same device as microneedling but with a tip that contains nanoneedles. These needles only penetrate the uppermost layer of the skin (the stratum corneum), allowing for better absorption of skincare products without the invasiveness of deeper penetration. This makes nano needling an excellent option for those who want to boost their skincare regimen without any downtime.
Before your nano needling appointment, keep your skin clean and refrain from applying makeup or lotions. Avoid sun exposure and any form of skin irritation for a minimum of 48 hours prior to the treatment. If you’re using retinol or other sensitizing skincare products, pause these treatments a week before your session.
Post-treatment, your skin may feel slightly sensitive, but far less so than with microneedling. A hydrating serum is applied immediately after the procedure to maximize benefits. It’s crucial to avoid sun exposure and any strenuous exercise for at least 48 hours post-treatment. Stay away from skincare products containing alcohol or other irritants during this time. You can expect to see results in the form of more hydrated, smoother skin within a few days.
If you’re looking for a gentler alternative to microneedling that still offers effective results, nano needling is worth considering.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skincare treatment that utilizes a device equipped with fine needles to create tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of your skin. This process stimulates your body’s natural healing mechanism, ramping up collagen and elastin production. Why microneedling? Improves the skin texture, reduces fine lines, acne scars, and even stretch marks. If you’re aiming for rejuvenated, healthier-looking skin, microneedling offers a proven method to achieve that.
Please arrive to your microneedling session with a clean, and free of makeup or lotions skin. Avoid sun exposure and any skin irritants for at least 48 hours before the treatment. Suspend any retinol treatments or other products that may sensitize your skin at least a week in advance.
After the procedure, it’s normal for your skin to feel a bit sensitive. For the next 48 hours, you should avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous exercise. Also, refrain from using skincare products containing alcohol or other irritants. In just a few days, you can expect to see a more youthful and radiant complexion.
