All About Microneedling in 2020

Acne scars, uneven texture, fine lines, and wrinkles are a concern for many of us! Boss Gal Beauty Bar offers several treatments to promote smooth skin, one of which is Microneedling. 

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like—a procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the top layer of your skin. This process is highly effective at smoothing the skin because it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. 

We know what you’re thinking: ouch! However, most people say the pain level is about a three on a scale of one to 10. Plus, we use topical numbing to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure!

In addition to a more-traditional Microneedling procedure, Boss Gal also offers Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which uses your plasma from a quick blood draw. Microneedling with PRP creates faster, more-dramatic results by using your body’s own growth factors to promote healing and rejuvenation. 

Microneedling is a highly effective procedure, and Boss Gal is one of the few MedSpas in Columbus that uses the SkinPen, which is the first microneedling device cleared by the Food and Drug Administration. For the best results, we recommend scheduling your Microneedling in a series of three procedures, spaced four weeks apart. 

After the procedure, you can expect your face to feel a bit like you have a sunburn. This, along with redness, pinpoint bleeding and some swelling, is totally normal and won’t last long. Microneedling also has minimal downtime—there will be some redness for 3-4 days, but you’ll be able to wear makeup the day after your appointment!
