I’m sure we have all seen the shock/horror articles about Katy Price’s recent venture into microneedling. As always, she has pulled in the crowds. But actually, this time, I do not think that it is Katy Price who is actually at the centre of it all but rather people’s slightly skewed reactions!
Microneedling is a new innovation in skin care and like all innovations, it is different, progressive and exciting. Good results have been seen using this technique. Agreed, it does look a bit horrific for the uninitiated and if you have never even heard of it, this looks dreadful but the outcome is worth the ‘blood bath’. In drawing blood, the practitioner knows that they have reached the right level of the dermis with the needles, thus ensuring that the product has reached it’s optimum destination and that surface blood flow has been stimulated. This all adds up to a glowing, smooth and even complexion.
As local anaesthetic is used, it is not painful. It is not for the faint-hearted however as you can feel the movements of the needles and in some areas, you can hear the skin ‘pop’! The skin is red for around 24 hours after (so not a facial to have if you have big plans for the next few days) and it feels tight – as Katy herself says ‘like sun burn’.
In reality though, this is a quick and effective treatment with very little ‘down time’ so does the procedure itself really matter that much?
It’s only a little blood after all!
