After cleansing my face and allowing the numbing cream to sit for 30 minutes I was ready to begin my procedure.
Luanda then began applying Hyaluronic Acid to the area she was about to use the needle pen on;
the needles were then applied to the area. During the treatment she spoke with me about my comfort level,
and was constantly adjusting the pen to ensure she was achieving the accurate depth.
While I could definitely feel the treatment happening it was not uncomfortable or extremely painful.
Some areas were a little bit more sensitive than others but overall the treatment was virtually painless.
The treatment itself without the 30 minutes for the numbing cream lasted roughly 30-45 minutes.
The redness and blood is to be expected and is an indicator that your face is responding well to the treatment.
This part was painless around the eyes and mouth was a little bit sensitive but completely bearable.
Immediately after my skin felt a little sensitive but nothing that was unbearable. Luanda suggested I apply
1 % hydrocortisone, a very strong SPF during daylight hours, drink plenty of water and avoid anything with harsh
chemicals or ingredients. At home that night my face felt like I had a mild sunburn, I did not wash my skin instead
I just splashed cold water on it and applied lots of soothing cream and hydrocortisone as instructed.
Over the next few days, the sunburnt feeling completely left and my skin began to gently peel. I made sure to apply
lots of sunscreens, using Caregen Canada’s Dermaheal SPF 50 a brand exclusively carried by New You. Dermaheal’s
SPF protects against both UVA and UVB rays while also helping to even skin tone and texture.
It has now been a week and a few days and I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I have received a number of
compliments about how glowy and healthy my skin looks. I have noticed a difference in the size of the enlarged
pores that were my main concern. The color of my skin is more balanced and even and texture has also improved.
I plan to undergo at least one more treatment to minimize some of the larger pores and to achieve
the color balance that I want.
If you have concerns about hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles,
uneven color or texture then microneedling is ideal for you. It is also a safe alternative to IPL
for broken capillaries, especially for pigmented skin.
