Cleo reviews: Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid Of Microneedling
As scary as it sounds, microneedling is said to be a great way to improve skin texture as well as boost the penetration of potent serums into your skin. But how exactly does it work? After all, it does involve needles so it’s best to get all the facts before diving straight in. Here are seven things you need to know about microneedling before trying it for yourself:
#1: How It Works
Not to be confused with acupuncture for the face, microneedling involves creating tiny puncture wounds on the skin. These “wounds” enable skincare products applied to penetrate deeper and quicker into skin layers, and at the same time, activate the skin’s natural repair mechanism to improve skin texture over time.
#2: What Tools Are Used?
Microneedling can be done using either a dermapen or a dermaroller. The former is essentially a pen-like device, with tiny spikes on one end, which when placed over the different areas of the skin, pushes down on skin surface to create these tiny wounds. On the other hand, a dermaroller looks like a painting tool, except it has spikes on the roller. All you have to do is roll the spikes over your skin to create the tiny holes.
