Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.  (courtesy www.realself.com)

I have heard great things about microneedling and was anxious to try it, specifically to treat the scarring I have on my chin.  Microneedling has a variety of skin care applications.  The basic idea of the treatment is aeration, yes like aerating your lawn.  A sterile needle with multiple ends is applied on the skin injecting a vitamin serum into the skin.  It helps with scarring, stretch marks, hydration, elasticity and overall skin rejuvenation.

I have wanted to try it for a while but I was concerned about the “after care” and what my skin would look like after.  I didn’t know how long it would take to heal.

 

 

Finally I tried it with my trusted skin Mama, Jen of Kawartha Cosmetic Clinic.  I vlogged not just the process, but my skin after the treatment. I was surprised at how easy it was and how little down time I needed to heal.   Watch the vlog and let me know what you think!


This picture was taken right after microneedling.
This pic was taken one week after the microneedling treatment.

  • I would like to win. I have a couple of scars I would like to reduce. One where my tooth when through my lip. Another is a checkerboard shaped scar on my forehead from when a top bunk of a bunk bed fell on my head when was 14. It really bothers me. This year it bothers me more than ever. If I win I will give away a service I offer, to pay it forward.

  • As I’ve aged pores are becoming noticeably larger along with wrinkles very hard on self esteem lol. You look awesome as usual Michelle. From an mf’r lol love to win !! If not as soon as I can afford will try anyway

  • Hi, I enjoyed watching the video and learning about this procedure. I would like to win because I have been through a lot this past year and it is showing on my face. I feel I deserve to experience this and would really like to reconnect with the side of myself that is feminine. Thanks.

  • I would love to win because I have some scars and some fine lines between my eye brows and on my forehead. The scars are from me getting chickenpox when I was younger and scratching like a mad man lol. I didn’t even know this treatment existed until I clicked on your Facebook link. This might actually help me πŸ™‚ thanks for the info.

  • I don’t feel my age so I don’t want to look it either! I work too much, my face still breaks out (what a cruel joke) and I don’t want to use concealer anymore! Lol I would love to try this!
    Thanks for doing the scary stuff for us Michelle! And I am definitely an MF’r in both senses πŸ˜›

  • I’ve been wanting to try this but am a little scared but definitely am ready to try it now that I’ve seen your video. I love Jenn and Angela at Kawartha Cosmetic Clinic…totally trust them!

  • If this process would reduce pore size, minimize a forehead scar and lift my pouty mouth ….then please please pick me! I’d love to look and feel fresher! How often will you repeat this process?

  • Michelle! I have the “chin” issue too. Struggling with stress, now infertility – hormonal acne is the worst and leaving scars! Never had issues as a teenager. It really affects a person confidence level. Would love to win, so my chin no longer feels like it’s “on display” (wtf to adult acne).

  • My face would love you if I won!!
    (As would I). I would love to rexuce my pores around my tzone.
    πŸ™‚
    Thanks for offering a chance to win.

  • Would love to win. Not so much to look younger but to feel better about the aging process, 47 has crept up faster then I could have imagined. Recently married now with a blended family of 7 kids. Finding ways to age gracefully without going under the knife is peaking my interest.

  • I think of the line from Rod Stewart’s song Maggie May
    “the morning sun when it’s in your face really shows your age”
    enough said

  • SIGN ME UP ANY TIME . WOULD BE CURIOUS TO TRY AS I AM PRETTY SKEPTICAL TO BELIEVE THAT ANY OF TH E TREATMENTS REALLY WORKS

  • I would love to try this! I’ve noticed that as I approach 40, my skin is showing the acne and eczema scars on my face more and more. I don’t think I could afford the treatment, but it would be great to try!

  • I would love a little pick me up. Busy Mom and working full time, I don’t do much for me. This would awesome!!

  • You looks so amazing. I have some acne scars on my chin and way more sun damage than I would like to admit (baby oil summers as a teen). Would love to try this to improve my skin ❀

  • Would love to try something to minimize the look of some scarring. I would love to feel beautiful everyday and not just in the right light.

  • I would love to have this done. I had a brain tumour removed Sept 11th 2015. Waiting for the surgery and then the recovery has left me with worry lines and aged skin. Thanks for the chance to win this. Thanks MF πŸ™‚ You look great!

  • I would love to try this! I have acne scaring and sun spots on my face as well as neck πŸ™ because of it I barely ever go out with my hair up. So this would be amazing!!! Good luck everyone 😊

  • Would love to win this. Have suffered with acne since a teen and at 28 it’s finally under control but I have some scaring and still have large looking pores. As a busy mom of a 4 and 1 year old with a fiancΓ© who works out of province I don’t have much time to put makeup on. I would love to try this and see if it would help with my skin and my confidence in going out without covering scaring ! πŸ™‚

  • I turned 30 back in January and I’ve gone through some hormonal changes which have cause painful acne. I’ve tried many things to help heal and prevent it further and i have looked into this procedure but have been a little nervous about it. So now regardless on whether I have the honour to receive the free treatment, I will be making an appointment to try it after watching your positive experience

  • I would love to win this! I have been interested in trying this treatment. I’ve noticed a lot of changes in my skin, including lines, larger pores and melasma due to pregnancy. I’m a mom of a busy toddler and new baby and would love to do something for me!

  • I would love to win b/c I have a skin condition called dermatitis hepetaformis – it’s basically a gluten allergy where I react in my skin / hives rashes bumps scars! My face needs a REFRESH!

  • I would love to win this! I started to get acne when I got pregnant with my first child and again with my second. My face is pretty scared, especially around my chin. I would love to feel happy about my skin again and not feel like I have to wear makeup on my face all the time.

  • I’d love to win this!!! I’m having major skin envy over here of your face Michelle!!! You truly look better than ever! My skin has changed so much in the past year, I can’t believe it- looking to change up my routine and products….this would be a good start! Woot woot!
