Why Use A Serum For Microneedling?
Let’s be honest: a microneedling procedure is hard on your skin. After all, you are creating hundreds if not thousands of injuries voluntarily to your face. Your body immediately goes into recovery mode, first, to stop the bleeding, and then to heal the skin, which it does with collagen. Your skin needs some tender-loving care after such an undertaking. Serums are perfect for promoting skin rejuvenation and aiding in the healing process. Skyn Aesthetics Group has created serums for just this purpose. Let’s look at some of the main ingredients in a good serum.
Hyaluronic Acid - Nourishing
A naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, hyaluronic acid (HA) lubricates the connective tissues of our joints and skin and is a water magnet, holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. Thus its hydration powers for skin in unrivaled in the skin care industry.
Hyaluronic Acid fortifies the skin’s natural barriers to help lock moisture in for an even more dramatic hydrating effect. Over time, this can help slow down the the deterioration of the lipid barrier and help protect and fortify it.
Vitamin C Serum - Brightening
Vitamin C can help fade pigmentation (more on this below!) and smooth the skin’s surface to reduce dullness. This gives skin a youthful glow.
Hyperpigmentation — including sun spots, age spots, and melasma — occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain areas of the skin. It can also happen in areas where acne has healed.
Vitamin C application has been shown to impede melanin productionTrusted Source. This can help fade dark spots and lead to a more even-toned complexion.
Sun damage is caused by molecules called free radicals. These are atoms with a missing electron. Free Radicals search for other atoms from which they can “steal” an electron —and this can lead to significant damage to the skin.
Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect healthy skin cells by “giving” these free radicals an electron, rendering them harmless.
Retinol Serum - Anti-Aging
Retinol is a gold-standard ingredient in skin care because it alters the behavior of aged cells so they act in a more youthful manner. It smooths and refines skin's texture, enhances skin radiance and treats aging. This is an amazing aftercare product but should not be used directly with microneedling.
Prevent wrinkles due to its minimizing effect, as well as smooth out existing fine lines and wrinkles.
Brighten dull skin by exfoliating at a cellular level, which results in brighter and smoother new skin.
Regulate oily skin and minimize breakouts.
Fade dark age spots, sun spots and hyperpigmentation and even out complexion over time.

Skyn strives for the highest quality products in order to maximize the effect of a microneedling procedure. When used regularly and especially in the first few days after a microneedling procedure, your results will be increased and your skin will thank you.
