If you want to keep your skin looking young before signs of aging even appear, micro needling may be the solution for you. It’s a non-invasive way to achieving flawless looking skin.

For the young actives out there, this practice requires very little downtime. The technology uses multiple fine needles to create tiny microchannels in the skin that activates the body’s natural healing process. This stimulates the creation of new skin cells and collagen and leaves skin looking younger, smoother, and wrinkle-free. The treatment itself is painless and can be done at your local dermatologist or at home.

  • Lesson wrinkles
  • Smoothen skin
  • Enhance elasticity
  • Treat scars
  • Reduce the appearance of large pores

However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are always potential risks for some people. Medical News Today discusses them here.

Jamie O’Banion, CEO and Co-Founder of Beautybio, launched GloPRO in 2016, an at-home micro-needling device. After just 24 hours of its launch, it racked up $4 million in sales. According to Coveteur, O’Banion shares that people notice a change in their skin right away and also down the road. “If you use it for 20 seconds on each quadrant of your face, the next morning your skin is literally fuller,” says O’Banion.

How to Use at Home:

  • Roll over face – 20 seconds on each quadrant– 1-minute total
  • 2 – 3 times per week
  • Use for 45 – 60 days to see permanent results

Overall, micro needling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate skin and achieve that flawless look!
