If firmer, smoother, tighter skin is something you’re interested in, then microneedling, as scary as it sounds, is the facial for you!

Microneedling… but is it as scary as it sounds?

With celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian raving about it, this is one of the biggest facials on the market.

Microneedling works by gently wounding the skin surface to encourage the skin to heal itself and produce collagen and elastin and absorb up to 80% more products.

While having this treatment the skin will go pink and possibly have some blood spotting- which is completely normal and expected. The pinking will take a couple of hours to go down. We recommend not using any retinol or exfoliating products for a week before and at least five days after.

Your skin will feel a bit odd after the treatment- I’m not going to lie! It’ll feel quite tight, possibly oily and flakey. Sometimes you can get tiny little bumps – this is not uncomfortable in the slightest, it just feels a little tight. This will only be for around five days.

After the first 24 hours, you can apply simple makeup if you wish. It’s really important to only use a basic cleanser and moisturiser within this five-day period to prevent any sensitivity to the skin and make sure to use a high SPF to protect it from any sun damage.

Once the five day period is up, it’ll be the best feeling when you exfoliate your skin!!!

This Soothing mask contains hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and licorice extracts to brighten. A mask will be used at the end of the microneedling treatment to take down any redness and to hydrate and soothe the skin straight after the treatment, but you can purchase one for home as well.

What makes our microneedling unique from others is it allows for highly controlled and precise treatment that is adapted to your exact skin needs and comfort. Unlike more invasive procedures, this quick treatment not only delivers marked results but it’s suitable for all skin types.

A course of three is recommended over the space of a few months then a maintenance session every six months or so.

These effective facials cost £210 a session or if you purchase a course of three it comes to £480 – that’s a huge saving of £150!!

The end results of these facials are fantastic and I’d highly recommend them if you are looking for a more youthful and fresh appearance. They’d work really well alongside our Dibi Milano skin care range, to two combined you’ll be guaranteed a change in your skin!
