The scoop on nano needling and Glow facial
Updated: Feb 5, 2022
You may have seen the recent posts and buzz on our social media platforms about the infamous Glow facial. What is it? The Glow facial is micro pigmentation of a BB cream like pigment and serums into the face. In as little as 4-6 treatments you can awaken every morning with a flawless and glowing face without the use of foundation or BB cream.
This facial has multiple steps that take place and its important our clients know what they're getting and what is happening during and after this service. Each client will receive a dermaplane and light chemical peel before the nanoneedling step.
Dermaplane is the removal of dead skin and vellus hair on the skin's surface with a scalpel blade; a very important step in helping skin glow. The chemical peel takes the exfoliation a step further by chemically removing dead skin and helping achieve even skin tone, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage. These two exfoliation steps prep the skin to be able to receive the maximum amount of serums and pigments during the nanoneedling process.
Nanoneedling is a non-invasive transdermal serum delivery system. A microneedling pen is used with a type of cartridge that has thousands of tiny tips that penetrate the skin's epidermis. Through these tiny little channels serums are able to penetrate and absorb into your skin at a extremely remarkable rate. It also stimulates the skin's collagen production and regeneration.
