Winter skin care is important since your skin’s ability to retain moisture decreases.

Prolonged exposure to harsh weather, stark changes in temperature, and indoor heating can make your skin irritated, dry, painfully flaky, and inflamed, but treatments like microneedling can help address these.

Scroll down to know more about how microneedling can help rejuvenate your skin during the winter.

What is Microneedling?

Sometimes called collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses sterilized small micro needles to create micro-injuries on the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen production to make your skin firmer, smoother, and more even toned.

What Happens During the Microneedling Process?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that rejuvenates your skin from within. A typical microneedling procedure goes like this:

  • The skin is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected.
  • The aesthetician then applies topical anesthetic cream to numb the area.
  • Depending on your concerns, the appropriate serum could be applied onto the skin to make it moist and extremely smooth, allowing the microneedling device to easily glide over the area.
  • The experts then use the microneedling device to make controlled micro-injuries onto your skin. The depth and number of pricks may vary according to your skin type and the part of the face being treated.
  • After the procedure is over, your expert applies the appropriate serum for your skin concerns and possibly a cooling mask to calm down the skin.

Benefits of Microneedling in Winter

Microneedling is safe all year-round, but there are certain benefits that come with getting this treatment in the winter. These include:

  1. More time for recovery. Sure, microneedling doesn’t really require significant downtime, especially compared to more invasive procedures. However, it’s common for some patients to experience redness and inflammation right after and thus might not want to leave the house for a few days.

    The winter season coincides with the holiday season, so there are considerably fewer work days, allowing you to recover from the procedure in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

  2. Less risk of harsh or excessive sun exposure. There’s usually less sunlight during winter, and the reduced risk of exposure to UV rays can help the skin heal faster and better.
  3. More timely for skin needs. During the winter months, coming into heated spaces indoors from the cold outside can leave the skin looking and feeling dryer than usual. Microneedling can address this issue effectively, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin no matter the weather.

Proper Aftercare

Regardless of when you choose to get microneedling done, it’s very important to observe the proper aftercare.

Not only does this lessen the risk of infection and other adverse side effects, but it also ensures the best possible results.

Some of the best microneedling aftercare processes include the following:
Avoiding direct and excessive sun exposure. Your skin will likely be more sensitive following the treatment, so exposure to the sun could damage it and compromise your results. If you can’t avoid going outside, make sure to put on a broad-spectrum sunscreen beforehand.

Using a mild cleanser and moisturizer. It’s important to keep the skin clean and moisturized to prevent infections and minimize scabbing.

Steer clear of skincare ingredients with harsh active ingredients. Keep away from products with active ingredients like retinol or vitamin C as these could irritate skin that’s still sensitive from the treatment.

Microneedling is safe and effective all year-round, but getting it during the winter season gives you added benefits.
