Blog: Seline shares her experience on the new treatment Microneedling & Peel | GLOW

Recently I had the opportunity to undergo the new combination treatment, Microneedling & Peel | Glow. I would like to share my experience and results of this beautiful treatment. In this treatment, microneedling is first applied to a depth of up to 0.5 mm. Then the gel peel of SkinCeuticals is applied. This consists of 20% glycolic acid and 10% lactic acid.

 

My skin quality prior to treatment:

· Slightly dull skin;

· PIH is present (pigmentation spots that appear after pimples and inflammation). Especially on the jaw line and cheeks and double chin and neck;

· Pore structure is fairly coarse;

· Small acne outbreaks, especially at the area of the double chin, jawline and chin;

· Mild melasma under the eyes and on the cheekbone.

How do I experience the treatment?

Microneedling is always a little sensitive, but since this treatment is done at a maximum depth of 0.5, it is not too bad. The treatment is also performed very quickly, so the sensitive sensation is over. Only during the ”needling” you feel a kind of mini sandpaper that is well present, what feels sharp, and on the skin ”slide”. The peeling that is applied afterwards gives a stinging feeling for about 3 minutes. Then you feel a mild (fine) warmth in the skin. This should not be cooled.

Immediately after treatment:

The skin feels warm and a little tight, the skin also feels a little fuller and firmer. A bit of a plumping effect. The skin is a little redder and a little warmer than normal and sensitive.

1-2 days after treatment

The skin feels a little tight and taut and mild redness is present. Furthermore, it is slightly sensitive when touched. This sensation persists for approximately 2 days.

3 to 4 days after treatment

By the third and fourth day, the redness has pretty much subsided. You can still see a very mild red glow. It looks like my skin has a very healthy color. The skin is no longer sensitive and tight. I already notice that there is less PIH, that I have less acne (breakouts) and in addition, my pigmentation is slowly starting to go away. Also, my skin feels smoother and healthier.

One week after treatment

My skin is very calm. I have fewer acne breakouts, less PIH and the melasma is also less. The pore structure is also less coarse now. All in all, I am very pleased with the new treatment and really notice a nice difference in: acne, PIH, melasma and pore structure. I am also slowly noticing some increase in volume and firmness now.
